British Olympian Sharron Davies Once Again Criticizes Unfairness of Trans Athletes

This is one controversy that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Last week, British Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies raised eyebrows for insisting that it was unfair for transgender athletes to compete against natural-born women. Now, Davies has spoken out again despite the outrage her comments kicked up last week.

Davies caught criticism last week for saying that “fundamental differences” between men and women make transgender athletes too powerful to compete against natural-born women.

But on Tuesday, Davies was back to push her point after she discovered the story of Gabrielle Ludwig, a trans woman in her 50s who became a basketball player for San Joaquin Delta College, in Stockton, California, despite having both a weight advantage, and being over a foot taller than the natural-born women she was competing against.

The tale of the trans player was first reported back in 2012, but Davies thought Ludwig’s being allowed to compete against obviously weaker opponents was illustrative of her claim that it is unfair for trans athletes to compete against women.

Davies jumped to her Twitter account to note that Ludwig’s membership on the college basketball team was hardly an example of a “level and fair playing field.”

“I just don’t understand how anyone can say this is a level & fair playing field,” she tweeted. “1000% increase in trans women taking part in sport recently. It’s a serious topic that has to be honestly dealt with for safety as much as integrity #fairplay.”

The Tuesday tweet echoes a previous tweet where Davies advocated to “protect” women’s sports.

“I have nothing against anyone who wishes 2be transgender,” she tweeted last Friday. “However I believe there is a fundamental difference between the binary sex u r born with & the gender u may identify as. To protect women’s sport those with a male sex advantage should not be able 2compete in women’s sport.”

Davies’ opinion of trans athletes echoes that of tennis great Martina Navratilova who recently became the target of attack by transgender activists for saying it is “insane” and “cheating” for transgender athletes to compete against natural-born women.

“You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women,” Navratilova said last December. “There must be some standards and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”

Trump Supporters Are Racists & ‘White Supremacists,’ Says Democrat Senator (Video)

What a silly thing to say!

Not enough people come out and say what needs to be said: Democrats are actively trying to kill the United States of America – period. There’s no two ways around it. Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono is one of the more obnoxious members of Congress, and possibly just as ignorant as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and AOC. On Monday, Hirono made a vile comment about Trump supporters. And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

Mazie Hirono (D-HI) claimed on Wednesday that members of White House under President Donald Trump’s administration brainstorm daily on new ways to harm illegal immigrants. Hirono said, “I think that the Trump Administration people sit around every single day thinking of new ways to be cruel to these migrants. That’s what they do and tomorrow they will probably come up with something else.” She added, “These families should not be detained and that’s the bottom line, and so we’re now contemplating thousands and thousands of migrant families being detained, doing irreparable harm to little children.

NBA Store Refusing to Let People Make Customizable Jerseys That Read ‘FreeHongKong’

‘Defund Police’ is okay, though…

The NBA is heavily dependent on China. The communist nation has as many basketball fans as the United States has people. And if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense. But at what cost? From Daily Wire: The National Basketball Association’s online store blocked people from being able to order customizable jerseys that featured “FreeHongKong” as the name on the back of the Jersey. Sports commentator Clay Travis posted a video to Twitter that showed the NBA blocking the jersey when the name entered was “FreeHongKong” but not when the name was “FreeHongKonu” thus showing that it had nothing to do with the number of characters on the jersey.
