Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is known for ruffling her fellow Democrat’s feathers. Now her remarks about transgenders in women’s sports are laying the groundwork for even more liberal pushback against her.
Gabbard tweeted that making women compete with biological men in sports is not far and is also physically dangerous.
“Denying the biological differences between men and women not only threatens women’s rights, it threatens our safety,” Gabbard tweeted. “Not only are we shutting women out of competitive sports, we are also shaming girls into silence in the face of abuse and harassment.”

She went on to discuss Title IX, which was created in an attempt to help female students play sports. It was designed for females to face less discrimination in the sports world. But Title IX is also threatened by the left.
A group of female athletes gathered in Washington DC to protest transgender competitors dominating women’s sports. Gabbard joined the females and was later interviewed by Greta Van Susteren about why she was there.
“The 50th anniversary of Title Nine really highlights the incredible opportunities and progress that have been made over the last 50 years,” Gabbard said. “And so when you see actions like those taken by the Biden administration today, and a lot of the changes that we’ve seen that are essentially pointing to the erasure of women, both through actions like hey, we’re not going to call use the word mother, or father in legislative language, we’re not going to say a mother. We’re going to call someone a birthing person.
“And then you see the Biden administration really rejecting the objective reality that there are biological differences between a man and a woman of male and a female,” Gabbard said, adding that she wants to stand with female “brave athletes” and speak out against the Biden Administration and others who are “hurting girls and women.”
One of the most controversial figures is a swimmer who goes by the name Lia Thompson. Thompson is a man who used to compete against male swimmers. He often did not place well. He then decided he wanted to become a woman and began competing against females. Thompson consistently beats his female counterparts. This has led to women athletes speaking out against the unfair physical advantages males have against females.
“In the in the women’s locker room Lia Thomas was exposing male genitalia and boasting about how [he is] still dating women and going out with women and these girls felt sexually harassed and threatened, and went and reported to their administrators and were told to be silent,” Gabbard said.
Many Republicans have respected Gabbard’s stance on attempting to save females’ sports. However, even though it appears that Gabbard is not like most Democrats, Republicans should not forget that Gabbard is still pro-abortion, pro-gun control and has many other progressive views.
