Former University of Kentucky Swimmer Riley Gaines Destroys Far-Left’s Gender Arguments
If you thought Riley Gaines was fierce as a 12-time All-American swimmer, wait until you see her in action on Capitol Hill. Gaines effortlessly defeated talking point after talking point during her testimony before members of Congress on Wednesday morning.
Gaines has become the face of defending women’s sports since last year when she was forced to compete against Lia Thomas, a transgender athlete, during the women’s 200-meter NCAA championships. Gaines immediately called out the unfairness of the situation and has been speaking out ever since.
During a Senate hearing on “defending the civil rights of LGBTQ+ Americans,” Gaines called out everyone who is trampling on the hard work of young girls and women. She made it clear that she doesn’t believe trans athletes should be banned from sports, but she wants fair and safe competition for everyone.
“I don’t understand why that’s overly controversial.”
Gaines also had a powerful exchange with Kelley Robinson, the president of the far-left Human Rights Campaign. Robinson claimed that no man could have beaten Serena Williams during her prime. Gaines quickly fact-checked her, pointing out that both Serena and Venus lost to the 203rd-ranked male tennis player.
“Both Serena and Venus lost to the 203rd ranked male tennis player…”
It’s clear that Gaines is not afraid to speak the truth and challenge the narratives pushed by the far-left. She also highlighted the importance of accommodating women and called out the misogyny that occurs when women’s needs are ignored.
“When you accommodate men time and time again, refusing to accommodate women, we call that misogyny.”
Gaines is a powerful advocate for women’s sports and she’s not afraid to stand up against the attacks and labels thrown at her. She knows that the only way to end the madness of forcing females to compete against males is for women like her to speak out and fight for fairness.
She’s tough, smart, eloquent, and as fierce as ever. Riley Gaines is the ultimate advocate for women’s sports.
