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.”

BOMBSHELL: Expert Confirms Google Swung Upwards of 10.5 Million Votes to Hillary In 2016

Everyone should be outraged. This is WRONG!

At least 2.6 million votes went for Hillary Clinton that probably otherwise wouldn’t have. At least. That number might jump to over 10 million. The funniest part is that Donald Trump still won. WATCH: https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1151614617556328448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151614617556328448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F426323-ted-cruz-calls-out-how-google-swung-millions-of-votes-toward-hillary-clinton-in-2016%2F Conservatives may want to begin boycotting Google if they haven’t already. The anti-conservative bias the outlet has shown on a daily basis since the 2016 election is otherworldly. President Trump appeared on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo to share his thoughts after Google admitted they want to keep POTUS from winning in 2020. Partial transcript, via Right Scoop: TRUMP: You saw what happened yesterday with Google. Google was totally biased, like you know they talk about Russia, because they have some bloggers. And by the way some of those bloggers were going both ways they were for Clinton and for Trump. MARIA: Well somebody at Google said they what happened in 2016 to happen in 2020. They don’t want it to happen again. TRUMP: Let me tell you, they’re trying to rig the election. That’s what we should be looking at, not the phony witch hunt. This is the greatest political disgrace in history… … TRUMP: They should be sued. What’s happening with the bias, and now you see it with that executive yesterday from Google the hatred for Republicans. It’s not even like let’s lean democrat. The hatred. And actually I heard that all during my election. They were swamping us with negative stuff.

Kathy Zhu lost the title of Miss Michigan because she’s a proud conservative. She supports President Trump. And that is NOT allowed! Her tweets: Miss World America’s State/National/Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamaphobic, and insensitive. They stripped me of my Miss Michigan title due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and “insensitive” statistical tweets. https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/1152044590645616640?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152044590645616640&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F These are the text message exchanges between the state director and me. https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/1152044900407549952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152044900407549952&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F Conservative & Proud https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/943574703834324992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E943574703834324992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F Get at us. #TurningPointUSA #SocialismKills https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/925021169702637568?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E925021169702637568&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F Kitty Trump #MAGA 🇺🇸 https://twitter.com/PoliticalKathy/status/921196764950093824?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E921196764950093824&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Ftrump-support-stripped-of-miss-world-america-title-because-of-insensitive-conservative-tweets%2F More about Zhu, circa 2018, per Campus Reform: Kathy Zhu, a freshman student at the University of Central Florida (UCF), recently faced a Twitter campaign calling for her expulsion after she critically questioned a “try on a hijab” event on campus. On February 1, Zhu was walking across campus when she noticed the Muslim Student Association (MSA) promoting World Hijab Day, an annual event held by Muslims across the globe to “foster religious tolerance and understanding by inviting women to experience the hijab for one day.” In a video posted on Zhu’s twitter account, Zhu explains that the MSA had organized a booth with a banner that stated “Try on a hijab,” along with signs that stated “My hijab empowers me,” and “My hijab is a symbol of understanding.” Here was her tweet: H/T: Twitchy
