January 1, Female Athletes Obliterate Testimony: Women Must ‘Lose Gracefully’ To Trans Competitors!

Published

on

Female athletes have taken exception to a statement made by Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the women’s rights nonprofit National Women’s Law Center, during congressional testimony about Title IX last week.

Many interpreted her words as suggesting that women and girls competing in sports should “learn to lose gracefully” to transgender athletes competing alongside them.

Goss Graves said, “Trans students participate in sports for the same reasons as [other] kids,” and added that they learn to lose gracefully and win with dignity.

Former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, who has been outspoken about the alleged unfairness of allowing biological men to compete in women’s events, fired back at the suggestion. Gaines noted that even when she tied with transgender University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas for fifth place during the 2022 NCAA finals, she gracefully lost to the four biological women who placed in front of her.

Gaines told Congress, “I certainly can and have lost gracefully many times in my career.”

Other female athletes, such as former marathon runner and British Olympian Mara Yamauchi, former professional tennis player Martina Navratilova, and Olympic medalist and former competitive swimmer Sharron Davies, also weighed in on the issue.

Yamauchi called the idea of women losing gracefully to men in their category “unforgivable,” while Navratilova said there is “nothing to be graceful about when the field is tilted so badly.”

Davies urged female athletes to stand together and say no to the idea of losing gracefully to males in women’s sports.

The remark also garnered attention from Republican lawmakers, such as Rep. James Comer and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Comer called the suggestion a “slap in the face” to athletes who worked hard, while Cruz labeled it “outrageous” and said that daughters should never have to learn how to lose gracefully in sports to men dressed up like women.

Why It Matters (op-ed)

The notion that female athletes should “learn to lose gracefully” to transgender competitors undermines the very essence of women’s sports. It’s not about denying trans students the right to participate, but about maintaining fairness for all athletes.

Transgender athletes may indeed participate for the same reasons as others, but the biological differences between sexes create an uneven playing field. Female athletes like Riley Gaines and Mara Yamauchi have dedicated their lives to their sports, and they deserve a level playing field.

When prominent figures like Martina Navratilova and Sharron Davies raise concerns, it’s vital to address the issue head-on instead of dismissing it. This isn’t about exclusion—it’s about preserving the integrity of women’s sports and ensuring fair competition for all.

    How about three class’s of sports 1) Male/Man – Ones that as born with male vais, organs and muscles 2) Female/Women – Ones that was born with females veins and female organs. 3) want-a-be. those borned male/man and think they are female in the wrong body. Those borned female/woman and think they are male in the wrong body. No one is allow to cross over in to any other sport.

    No Transgenders don’t learn to lose gracefully, if they did they’d stay in male sports!!

    The literal insanity of believing it’s fair for men to compete in women’s sports at any level is simply another aspect of progressive interest to destroy Western civilization.

    Losing to men by men should not automatically give them the right to gender switch so they can win at a sport. I am not by any means a female athlete, but, a low ranking male can outperform a higher ranking female athlete simply because of their BIOLOGY. Men, trans or not are at a biological advantage over women, that is why women’s sports were created, to give them equal footing with another BIOLOGICAL female, not to a loser male who cannot hold his own against other males of a higher caliber. There are some men who want to win at athletics, but frankly just suck at it. So they become trans just to win at a sport they cannot compete against a naturally talented male athlete and win. Just realize that you suck at something and move on. I fully support any and all the female athletes that speak out against this habit of stroking some male’s ego simply because he cannot take the competition from other male athletes that can outperform and beat them. They cannot accept the fact that they are just not cut out for that particular sport. Accept your defeat quietly and move on with dignity and find something else that you can do.

    Liberals want everyone to be equal at the finish line, not at the starting line. As such, those who can are held back, and those who can’t are given passes to compete unfairly. That’s why people like Thomas, who swam as a man for years, never made an impact, suddenly decided that he was female and could compete better as a “weaker sex”. He isn’t “weaker”, just not competent.

    I would “gracefully” back out of any competition with men with the words “I will not clomply!”

    The only way this is going to be settled is by having a 3rd category of Competition. 1 for Males, 1 for Females and 1 for Trannies who think everyone needs to bow to their mental illness. Title IX was written to protect Woman and make their sports safe. Just because some Man who sucks playing with and against men starts taking hormones will never change their Male DNA or suddenly allow that Man to be able to give birth. Men have no place playing against Woman unless it’s a Organized CoEd league. This Insanity must stop and the Woman should never have to compete in Woman’s Sport.

    Why are so many seemingly intelligent people willing to sacrifice facts for applause? In spite of these individuals suggesting and affirming that a male body is a duplicate of a female body – so there is NO issue with a biological male competing REALITY, FACTS, SCIENCE say NO!! No matter how many hormones a male body is given, and despite any operation, or how a male chooses to dress – or by what name a male chooses to be called – there are UNDISPUTED FACTS: a male body HAS more lung capacity with wider airways, and greater lung diffusion capacity than women. A male body HAS a bigger heart. Maximal exercise capacity may be limited by pulmonary capacity in women as men have significantly greater left ventricular mass and chamber size than women. While left ventricular ejection fraction is the same in both sexes, the stroke volume is larger in men than in women. Like it or not – it is undeniable – body composition differs between men and women. Males typically have proportionately more muscle mass, more bone mass, and a lower percentage of body fat than women. MALE BONES ARE BIGGER AND STRONGER, in both size and density – thanks in part to a high level of testosterone.
    So, even though more males are choosing to ‘live in role as women’, they can’t actually BE FEMALE. It’s a medical impossibility. There is not such thing as a ‘sex change’. This is simple fact, not prejudice or transphobia. Biological sex affects every part of us, down to the cellular level. Our biological sex informs our bodily structure & function, metabolic processes, and health outcomes. The internet’s full of misinformed nonsense
    Chromosomes, biological sex – DNA, XX vs XY…………
    NOT THE SAME – A male will most likely ALWAYS win competition with a FEMALE…competing against each other is totally unfair and actually bizarre!!!!!!!!!! Wishful thinking or plain stupidity???

    This bending over backwards to transgender ‘female’ athletes really has got to go. Nothing fair about it to genetic females, with their lesser muscle and bone mass. But what is also reprehensible is that no one seems to be looking at the matter of causation, in simply trying to deal with the various effects. It has been known for years that an imbalance of hormones in the hormonal bath that the fetus is developing in can result in a female-patterned brain being ‘wired’ into a genetically male body and vice versa and every stop along the abnormal spectrum in between, like trannies. The causes are varied. One is stress – of all kinds, physical, mental, emotional (it’s known that there are a larger number of homosexually-inclined children born in the wake of wars than the normal background ‘noise’ can account for, e.g.). But a couple of biggies, in our time and on our watch: Endocrine disruptors/estrogen mimics in the environment, from the likes of plastics, pesticides/herbicides, cosmetics even (!), and the inner lining of canned goods; and drugs like barbiturates, prescribed to – or just taken by – pregnant females without sufficient regard for their potential effects on the developing fetus. The LGBTQ+ phenomenon, then, is like a canary in a coal mine, alerting us to the fact that something is dangerously amiss in our environment. We ignore that warning to our peril. And yet the medical-pharmaceutical-government complex is appallingly quiet in this matter. Why? It may have something to do with the fact that they are making a lot of money on the status quo. To their eternal shame. Just one of the major changes that need to be dealt with in our current social order.

    You forgot Billie Jean King. She played against Bobby Riggs and he LOST. She also stated it’s not fair for women.

    God created male and female not Steve with a female body or Jane with a male body.

    Giving trans their own division is not viable. The men’s and the women’s groups would have to finance the trans division because no one would watch. Everything the left is pushing needs to be immediately fought against. This insanity from the left was ignored for decades and here we are. A whole month of pride on who you have sex with, being forced to adore people who believe they can change their gender, being cancelled for not wanting socialism. Thus will never end until the people fight against it. And yes it could get violent but the left has already started the violence

    As a male that was not physically endowed to successfully participate in most sports, I had to accept that fact and focus my efforts to other things. I have found more than one niche where I can excel. If you are blessed, or cursed, with having a man’s body but want to change to being a female, fine, but accept the fact that competing against women in sports will not be available to you, period!! One thing I don’t understand, why don’t all the girls/women, who participate in sports, boycott that sport when a person, born as a male, tries to invade their sport. Without the numbers of female participants, there wouldn’t be any events. There are too many people who help organize and regulate those events that would be out. Transgenders would be banned immediately!!
