The extreme transgender movement continues to encroach into women’s spaces.
A line is being drawn in the sand against their advances.
And Riley Gaines made one power move that sent the woke outrage mob into a frenzy.
Former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines is one of the most outspoken critics of women being forced to compete against biological men in sports.
She had to compete against and share a locker room with University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas – a biological man – at the NCAA championships.
Transgender golfer Hailey Davidson is inching closer to joining the LPGA Tour after dominating on the NXXT Women’s Pro Tour – the LPGA’s developmental tour – and winning a recent event.
Davidson has the most points of any golfer on the tour and is in line to earn a tour card to compete on the LPGA Tour.
In 2010, the LPGA removed a requirement that a golfer had to have been born a female to compete.
As the controversy grew, Davidson has dismissed any criticism as “misinformed hatred.”
Gaines announced on social media that she was setting up a crowdfunding effort to pay for “expenses, sponsorships, and/or prize money lost” of female golfers on the NXXT Tour that boycotted tournaments where Davidson was competing.
Talk radio show host Clay Travis and others promised to financially support her effort.
Gaines appeared on Fox Business for an interview with Stuart Varney to explain her effort.
“We have to incentivize not participating in the farce,” Gaines said.
“I’ve talked to so many of these girls before publicly making this statement, and every single one of these girls who’s had to compete against this male, they tell me: Riley, I can’t not compete because I have sponsorships and I have endorsements, and this is my job. If I don’t do this, I don’t have income,” Gaines explained.
With the financial support provided by Gaines’ effort, these golfers can afford to take a stand against their sport being taken over by a biological male.
“If these girls boycott, it sends a powerful and effective message that we as women, as female athletes, we’re saying: no, enough is enough. We’re rolling up our sleeves,” Gaines said.
Gaines said she is weighing expanding the program “for any sport” that a woman has to compete against a biological male.
“I will happily pay that fee. Whatever that looks like in any sport,” Gaines said. “And I know it’s easier said than done because when I was faced with this, I competed against Lia Thomas, I didn’t want to have to sacrifice all the work that I had put in. But I do think it’s necessary now.”
Women refusing to compete against biological men could turn the tide in the fight to save women’s sports.
Drawing a line in the sand would send a powerful message to the extreme transgender movement.
