A British Olympic swimmer has become a target of attack by leftists for saying that transgenders should not be allowed to compete against natural-born women.

Sharron Davies has been accused of “hate” after sticking up for biological women.

Among other awards, Davies won a silver medal in swimming at the 1980 Olympics in Moscow, but she is now under fire for being “transphobic” for her comments about transgender athletes, according to the UK Independent.

Davies recently took to Twitter to express her concern that transgender athletes are unfair for real women.

“I have nothing against anyone who wishes 2be transgender,” Davies wrote on March 1. “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.”

After the inevitable backlash. Davies defended her point by noting that she is not the only natural-born female athlete who feels that transgenders are essentially cheating natural women out of titles.

“It is not a transphobic thing – I really want to say we have no issue with people who are transgender,” Davies told the BBC on Saturday.

”Every single woman athlete I’ve spoken to, and I have spoken to many, all of my friends in international sports, understand and feels the same way as me,” Davies added.

Davies also noted that it is incumbent on athletes from the past to speak out for women’s rights.

“Unfortunately, a lot of people who are in the races [now] are in a very difficult predicament when they can’t speak out,” she said. “It maybe falls to the people who were competing [in the past] who would understand the predicament that is being faced at the moment to try to create a debate, and try to explain how we feel there needs to be a fair and level playing field.”

Indeed, tennis great Martina Navratilova recently became the target of attack by transgender activists for her stance that transgender athletes were “cheating” by competing 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.”

Navratilova also called transgender athletes competing against women “insane.”

Maybe real women are finally speaking up for themselves?

WATCH: Omar Openly Mocks Conservative Christians From Floor of House of Representatives

Different day, same radical.

Different day, same Ilhan Omar. The Minnesota Democrat can’t seem to stop putting her foot in her mouth, seemingly in an attempt to keep up with fellow freshman lawmakers Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY). Check out her speech from the House floor where she attacks conservative Christians for being pro-life… From Daily Wire: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked conservative people on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday over their advocacy for pro-life stances on abortion. Ilhan said, “I rise today to defy the horrifying attacks happening against women’s reproductive rights all across this country. Religious fundamentalists are currently trying to manipulate state laws in order to impose their beliefs on an entire society, all with complete disregard for voices and the rights of American women.” She added, “I am frustrated every single time I hear people speaking about their faith and pushing that on to other people because we know those so-called religious politicians, when it comes to their life, their choices, they want to talk about freedom. But when it comes to other people’s lives and other people’s choices, they want to talk about religion. This should outrage every single person. It certainly outrages me and we can no longer stand for it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1131354195175460864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131354195175460864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47573%2Fwatch-ilhan-omar-attacks-conservative-people-faith-ryan-saavedra Congressional Dems are taking a stand against Ilhan. From From Beacon: The reelection campaign for Rep. Lucy McBath (D., Ga.) said Wednesday it rejected a $2,000 contribution sent to it by her fellow Democratic freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar (Minn.), who has been criticized by colleagues on both sides of the aisle for anti-Semitism. The Free Beacon first reported the $2,000 contribution given by Omar to McBath, whose campaign oddly left the contribution off its quarterly fundraising report. Pressed on the reason for its absence on Tuesday, the McBath campaign…
