Former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, a past NCAA champion and now an activist for women’s sports, was also on hand and joined the Roanoke students to say that it should not take “bravery” for women to be able to save their spaces. “It shouldn’t have to take bravery and fair treatment to speak up for the fair treatment of women and girls, and if leaders cannot find it within themselves to do that then we need different leaders,” Gaines said. Men have been dominating many women’s sports from swimming, to weight lifting, to cycling and more, as sports agencies and colleges bow to the radical transgender agenda. But women are finally beginning to speak out against this invasion of their spaces by men posing as women, who are taking opportunities away from natural-born women all across the world. Women who have dedicated their lives to excelling at their sport are being blown out by men who suddenly decided they are women. And many are finally getting fed up.
Soooooo proud to stand with @RoanokeCollege women’s swim team today as they held a press conference calling for the NCAA, their university, and lawmakers to implement policies to protect women’s sports!!How many more girls have to lose out on opportunities for us to say “NO”? pic.twitter.com/h7nRig99qK — Riley Gaines (@Riley_Gaines_) October 5, 2023
