Tennis legend and long-time lesbian activist Martina Navratilova infuriated liberals this week by turning against men who think they are women competing against natural women in sports.
Navratilova is as far from a right-winger as you can get, granted. She has been a lesbian activist for decades but coming out against transgenders is the kind of apostasy that liberals won’t soon forget these days.
So, now she is coming out against transgenders competing against women and taking heat from the left over her distaste for men pretending to be women competing as women.
Recently the tennis star weighed in on her thoughts about men pretending to be women in women’s sports and it turned out that Navratilova is one left-winger who does NOT like transgenderism in sports.
Replying to a question on Twitter, Navratilova was sour on trandgenders and said, “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women,” she wrote. “There must be some standards and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”
Naturally, as soon as she posted that message, the liberal loons ganged up on her and tried to shame her into changing her mind on the mentally ill transgenders.
One transgender twitter user warned Navratilova against allowing others to “play on her fears.”
But the Czech-American Tennis star bristled against the idea that she was afraid of anything.
The tennis star went on proving that she was not about to back down from her feelings that it isn’t fair when men compete against women.
As far as many are concerned, Navratilova is exactly right. Many understand that Men are simply more powerful than women and just because some man is now pretending to be a woman does not mean it is fair to have a man compete against a woman.
