British Olympian Sharron Davies Once Again Criticizes Unfairness of Trans Athletes

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

Published

Transgender

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.”

Report Shows Joe Biden Paid Women Far Less Than Men During His 35 Years In the Senate

Oh, this seems more than a little interesting…

There are many reasons to not vote for former Vice President Joe Biden. Too many to list here. But as long as Donald Trump is out of office, liberals wouldn’t care if Joe or a trained monkey worked out of the Oval Office. Biden claims that he’s a liberal but his actions over the years tell a different story. He’s not really anything other than ignorant. This report about the 2020 Democrat frontrunner paying women less than men for three and a half decades while a senator from Delaware should have the left in a tizzy. But it won’t. From Free Beacon: Women working for former vice president Joe Biden were paid less than their male counterparts during the entirety of Biden’s 35 years in the U.S. Senate, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. When Biden joined the Senate in 1973, the average pay for a full-time female staffer in his office was $5,029, about 68 percent of the $7,383 average paid to men during that span, according to the secretary of the Senate’s first spending report for the 93rd Congress. A Free Beacon analysis of spending reports covering Biden’s full Senate tenure found that he never achieved gender pay equity. Over the course of Biden’s time in the Senate, women on average earned just 67 cents for each dollar earned by men. Check out the chart: The Free Beacon conducted its analysis using salary disbursements disclosed in the biannual report of the secretary of the Senate. As with previous Free Beacon gender pay gap investigations, only staffers employed for the entirety of any of the six-month pay periods analyzed were included in the calculations. Biden said he’d cure cancer if elected president in 2020. No joke. As if that weren’t bad enough, Biden is now claiming the Obama…

Cruz On Obama’s FBI Targeting Trump: ‘This Was Beavis & Butthead,’ Not ‘Jason Bourne’

Ted Cruz for the win?

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) has forgotten more about politics and American history than most people will ever know. Red, white, and blue runs through his veins. Never one to censure himself, Cruz unloaded on Inspector General Michael Horowitz and taught him a thing or two in the process. It was brilliant. From Daily Wire: On Wednesday, speaking at Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s hearing, Senator Ted Cruz attacked the Obama administration for its supposed ignorance of the actions of the FBI and DOJ that targeted the 2016 Trump campaign, snapping, “This wasn’t Jason Bourne. This was Beavis and Butt-Head.” WATCH: Ted Cruz: This wasn’t Jason Bourne, this was Beavis and Butthead🔥 https://twitter.com/PolishPatriotTM/status/1204839761921421312?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1204839761921421312&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fcruz-this-wasnt-jason-bourne-this-was-beavis-and-butthead%2F WATCH: THE FIX WAS IN… FBI official allegedly altered document that was basis for FISA warrant on surveillance of the 2016 Trump campaign. https://twitter.com/CaliforniaPanda/status/1197665317675294722?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197665317675294722&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-fbi-official-under-criminal-investigation-for-altering-document-used-to-start-probe-into-trump-campaign Reactions: And CNN puts it in paragraph 2 – bc this is the most important thing – that Trump will accuse the FBI of wrongdoing in this investigation.
