Gay Sports Group Expels Martina Navratilova After She Slams Transgenders

The group also insisted that there is “no evidence at all that the average trans woman is any bigger, stronger, or faster than the average cisgender woman.”

On Sunday, tennis legend Martina Navratilova came out 100 percent against allowing men who claim to be transgender to compete against natural-born women. By Monday, a gay sports group she belonged to expelled her over her remarks.

On Sunday, the 62-year-old tennis star formally discussed her feelings against transgender athletes being allowed acceptance under their chosen gender, calling the idea that men can compete as women “insane” and “cheating.” But her candor and considered opinion were too much for the gay advocacy group, Athlete Ally.

Athlete Ally released a statement Tuesday accusing Navratilova of being “transphobic” and adding that she “has been removed from our Advisory Board and as an Athlete Ally Ambassador, effective immediately.”

The group continued saying, “as an organization committed to eradicating root causes of homophobia and transphobia in and through sports, we are deeply troubled by the misinformation and stigma she is perpetuating and hope that the correct information is disseminated.”

The advocacy group also accused the tennis legend of making statements “based on false data.”

For instance, the group took issue with Navratilova’s characterization of men who “decide to be female.”

“Navratilova referred to trans women as men who ‘decide to be female,’ and that to allow them to compete with women is ‘cheating and unfair.’ First of all, trans women are women, period. They did not decide their gender identity any more than someone decides to be gay, or to have blue eyes,” Athlete Ally wrote in its statement.

The group also insisted that there is “no evidence at all that the average trans woman is any bigger, stronger, or faster than the average cisgender woman.”

Washington Redskins Officially Announce Name Change

Published

on

All weekend long rumors floated around the Internet that the Washington Redskins would be capitulating to the insanity of radical leftist social justice warriors and would change their name, as many in the liberal movement say it’s “offensive” to Native Americans. Never mind, of course, that the team was actually named by Native Americans, nor the fact that the logo was also designed by a Native American. Well, it turns out the rumors are true. The Redskins announced on Monday they would indeed be changing the team’s name. Sad times, folks. Sad times. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The team, which has gone by the old name since the 1930s, announced on Monday that it will no longer use the term “Redskins” after critics have claimed it was racist and insensitive to Native Americans. In a statement team owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera said they are “working closely to develop a new name and design,” which have not yet been revealed. The Washington Post reported that the team is unable to reveal the new name because there is an ongoing trademark dispute. Synder, who purchased the team in 1999, has repeatedly refused to change the team name and defended it in previous years, but calls for the team to change its name were renewed following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. Protests, which were mostly peaceful, have spread across the country, demanding an end to systemic racism and police brutality. Some cities are still having demonstrations six weeks after his death. You can almost guarantee that with the faltering of the Redskins to political correctness, pressure will be applied to other sports teams such as the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Atlanta Braves. All of these teams use Native…

Nike Yanks Redskins Merch From Website As Team Sponsors Demand Name Change

The PC police are at it again, folks. With the racial tensions in America reaching new heights in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers, those who are obsessed with finding racism under every rock and around every corner have once again, for the umpteenth time, set their sights on the Washington Redskins professional football team. Nike, the world’s most popular shoe and sports merchandises brand, has pulled all products related to the Redskins team as sponsors for the Redskins demand that the team change its name to something a little less offensive. Good grief. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Searches for Washington Redskins apparel on Nike’s website yielded no results Thursday night, the day after 87 investment firms sent letters to three Redskins sponsors, Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo, urging them to end their relationships with the team if it did not change its name, according to Fox Business. “In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that has focused the world’s attention on centuries of systemic racism, we are witnessing a fresh outpouring of opposition to the team name,” the firms said to Nike in the letter. “Therefore, it is time for Nike to meet the magnitude of this moment, to make their opposition to the racist team name clear, and to take tangible and meaningful steps to exert pressure on the team to cease using it.” FedEx specifically holds the naming rights to the team’s home stadium, and the company CEO holds a minority ownership in the franchise. https://twitter.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1278872483605733377 Owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been hit time and time again over his choice to keep the name of the team the same, as folks on the left claim it’s offensive to Native Americans. However, Snyder has refused to…
