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?

Biden & Harris Refuse to Answer Questions From the Press — For Third Day In A Row (Video)

They must not have anything to say to the American people…

Donald Trump picked Mike Pence to be his vice presidential running mate in 2016 because the man was the chief executive of a state. Pence had gubernatorial experience, as well as a past in the lower chamber of Congress. Joe Biden, on the other hand, chose Kamala Harris to be his VP running mate because of the color of her skin. That’s literally the only reason. It was a purely political move, as the Biden camp knows they can call everyone racist if they say something negative about Harris – and the media will back them up. But Joe and Commiela had better be careful. If they continue to sidestep even liberal reporters, said liberal reporters are likely to become salty.

The Durham probe will leave yet another stain on Barack Obama’s record, showing how inept and corrupt the 44th president’s administration truly was. And it’s about time something got done. The left won’t pay much attention to this story, because they know they don’t want to know. You feel me?

Clinesmith was referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which conducted its own review of the Russia investigation. Specifically, the inspector general accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page to say that he was “not a source” for another government agency. Page has said he was a source for the CIA. The DOJ relied on that assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to eavesdrop on Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Keep America Great!
