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?

Stephanopoulos Makes ‘Slit Throat’ Gesture to Cut Off Trump Lawyer, Then Realizes He’s Live On Air

His reaction is priceless…

As a house explodes behind him, Leslie Nielsen walks away saying, “nothing to see here!” That’s how the mainstream media treats any situation that might be favorable to President Trump. But, at the very least, the American public 100% understands that the mainstream media is far-left and extremely biased. In a way, they have accepted it. Not that it matters to the MSM. They just keep chugging along, full speed ahead. Check out George Snuffaluffagus’s reaction once he realized he got caught on live TV… From Daily Wire: An awkward moment from ABC News’ coverage of the Senate impeachment trial Thursday has gone viral and sparked all kinds of commentary online. ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos —who once served as a senior advisor to the only other living impeached president not named Donald Trump — was caught on camera Thursday making a “slit-the-throat” gesture urging the crew to stop showing White House Attorney Jay Sekulow as he countered a reporter’s supposition that allies of President Trump have “made statements to the effect of ‘abuse of power is an impeachable offense.’” WATCH: https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1220761295630278656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220761295630278656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbernie-sanders-releases-statement-following-backlash-from-joe-rogan-endorsement All politicians are liars. Every single one of them makes “promises” they know they can’t keep. The trick is to do it subtly so people don’t catch on until you’ve been sworn into office. Joe Biden doesn’t care, though. He can say whatever he wants because he’s got Hollywood, the uninformed, and the mainstream media to back up his every word. Check out Joe telling what is quite arguably the biggest, most ridiculous lie of 2019… Joe Biden just claimed on CNN, that today was the first time he had ever heard President Trump condemn white supremacy. THAT IS FALSE. Here are MULTIPLE examples of President Trump condemning white supremacy, going back to 2016. https://twitter.com/FrancisBrennan/status/1158542161220112385?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1158542161220112385&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbiden-just-flat-out-lied-about-trump-on-cnn%2F How absurd…

Nadler On Senate Floor: Trump ‘Is A Dictator’ & ‘He Must Be Removed From Office’ [Video]

A democratically elected dictator?

Democrats set a horrible precedent when they decided to impeach President Trump. What they did was open the door for any future president to be impeached for any reason, whatsoever. At the end of the day, Democrats have admitted that they feel POTUS will win re-election in November unless they do something to stop it – like impeach. But the people aren’t dumb and the left has an extremely poor crop of presidential candidates. Bad combo for Dems. Check out Rep. Jerry Nadler (NY) from the Senate floor… WATCH: https://twitter.com/RepAndyBiggsAZ/status/1220843902716071936?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220843902716071936&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F01%2Fnadler-president-trump-is-a-dictator-and-he-must-be-removed-from-office-video%2F CNN hit Nadler where it hurts by using his own words against him. Back when Republicans wanted to impeach President Clinton for a completely legitimate reason (lying under oath), Nadler and his ilk said the GOP were acting in a partisan manner and their actions were dividing the country. Obviously, Nadler doesn’t feel the same today when it comes to the impeachment of President Trump – despite no valid reason to remove him from office. And when CNN is calling out liberals, it means even they know this whole process is going to leave egg on all Democrat faces. Might want to listen up, Jerry. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=54&v=Y8_-I2Pot_c&feature=emb_logo Here are Nadler’s full comments: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FERMHv8Plto&feature=emb_logo Breaking — A source familiar with the investigation prompted by the whistleblower tells me that the “indicia of bias of an arguable political bias on the part“ of the whistleblower referred to by the Intel Community IG, is that the whistleblower is a Registered Democrat. https://twitter.com/jaketapper/status/1179862262653358082 2/ The attorney for the whistleblower declined to comment.
