Former collegiate swimmer Riley Gaines recently slammed Nike on a recent podcast appearance for their brand deal with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney.
Gaines criticized the sportswear company on OutKick’s “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show.” She said, “And I don’t anticipate that happening. I don’t know if they can understand the mockery [Mulvaney’s deal] makes of women, especially the video of Dylan — I guess portraying what he thinks women look like when we work out — doing jumping jacks and doing different things. That is so incredibly degrading, and for Nike to take this stance, they can forget taking my money. And I’ve talked to a lot of female athletes who agree with exactly everything I just said.”
Gaines also referenced the recent attack against her at San Francisco State University, where she was assaulted and chased by a violent mob of pro-transgender protestors. She mentioned that this mob behavior has intimidated people into silence, as they fear being labeled “transphobic.” Gaines said, “Well, to be totally frank, people are scared because look at what just happened to me for saying something as simple as men and women are different. That’s easy, right? That’s common sense, yet I was still ambushed. No one wants that to happen to them; no one wants to be labeled as transphobic.”
Gaines also implied the campus police were afraid of doing their job as they were even afraid of not being an “ally” to the woke mob. “To which they pretty openly admitted they didn’t want to be accused of being racist,” she said. “These police were put in a position where they didn’t want to risk their jobs. They didn’t want to be seen as anything other than an ally to that community. And so, it did hinder their performance.”
Gaines also recently criticized woke athletes such as Megan Rapinoe for supporting biological males taking over women’s sports. She continued, “Of course it’s ironic, but they want to be seen as inclusive and kind and accepting and welcoming and loving and all the things — which, of course, who doesn’t want to be seen as those things? But — newsflash — it’s not inclusive to allow men to take a podium spot from a woman. It’s exclusive. And it’s not kind to allow a male equipped with male genitalia to change in a locker room with girls. That’s not kind. That’s not inclusive.”
In a now-deleted Tweet, Gaines slammed Rapinoe stating, “It’s worth noting that 1) you are done playing sports competitively and 2) because you aren’t sexually attracted to men, you will never have a daughter to defend. To me, this simply looks like virtue signaling because you have nothing to personally lose.” Gaines continued, “I can respect opinions that differ from my own and everyone is entitled to think/speak independently, but I can’t help but think Megan Rapinoe would genuinely shiv any male who attempted to take her spot on the US Women’s National Team.”
Riley Gaines has been one of many conservative activists speaking out against the transgender movement taking over women’s spaces. It is a stark reminder of where we are in society and shocking to think that even five years ago, most people could agree on the definition of men and women.
