The debate on biological men in women’s sports is one of the most unlikely places most people thought America would be in, but here we are. State governments, sports governing bodies, and the federal government seem to be making a concerted push to essentially end women’s athletics in favor of less than one-percent of our population.
That doesn’t mean their isn’t pushback against this evil agenda, but the voices have been too few and far between. Whether its fear of losing endorsements or being cancelled by the alphabet polices, too few folks have spoken out in favor of real women playing authentic women’s sports.
The narrative is beginning to shift slightly thanks to brave women like former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines. Gaines tied for fifth place in the 200-meter freestyle event at the NCAAs in March 2022 with Lia Thomas, a biological male who swam at the University of Pennsylvania.
After the race, the NCAA gave Thomas the fifth-place trophy. No explanation was given to Gaines as to why, and now she is on a mission to protect real women in sports. Recently, Gaines picked up another powerful voice to join hers in speaking truth about fairness in women’s sports
Olympic gold medalist Donna de Varona had some important comments on the Brian Kilmeade Show. The Daily Caller reports: “She’s got a lot of us veterans behind her. But where is middle America? Wake up, mothers and fathers, and start speaking out.”
The NCAA introduced a new policy for transgender athletes. The panel, Two-Time Olympic Gold Medal Swimmer Donna de Varona, Track Athlete Alanna Smith, and Legal Counsel Christiana Holcomb, reacts on Friday's "Wake Up America."

That is a great question. This must be happening at lower levels of sport across the country, we just haven’t heard about most of it. As long as parents stay quiet, we won’t hear about it.
It should be recalled that Gaines was recently assaulted in San Francisco after a speech. She told OutKick’s “Don’t @ Me with Dan Dakich: “I was supposed to meet with the head of campus police a half an hour before the event to discuss an exit strategy if this happened but the police never showed up to meet me,”
It certainly looks as though San Francisco State University sold Gaines out in terms of security, allowing protesters to physically assault and barricade her in the building.
De Varona is not anti-trans. She correctly pointed out how the New York City Marathon created a separate category for trans and non-binary people. While that may not be possible with all sports at all levels, simply throwing up your hands and allowing dudes to play with girls isn’t the solution either.
The former Olympic champion knows a thing or two about women’s sports and women’s rights. She has numerous accolades in that arena. The Daily Caller laid out her accomplishments:
De Varona competed in the 1964 summer Olympics in Tokyo, winning gold medal in the women’s 400, beating the second-place finisher by six seconds setting an Olympic record. She also received a second gold medal on the 4 x 100. At age 17, she had 18 world records. She also created the Women’s Sports Foundation and created the foundation for Title IX.
That is the same Title IX that the Biden administration is weaponizing to use against biological women. We are living in strange days, and they don’t look to get any less stranger until more influential people like De Varona speak out and wake people up.
