Rapinoe Demands Trans Athletes Compete with Women, Apparently Forgets Big Incident

Megan Rapinoe, the former soccer star, continues to advocate for transgender athletes to participate in women’s sports despite her past experience of losing to a team of teenage boys.

Rapinoe recently joined other athletes in signing a letter urging the NCAA to allow men identifying as women to compete in women’s sports, citing inclusivity and the well-being of athletes.

The letter argues that excluding transgender athletes would hinder member institutions' ability to support and protect their athletes and criticizes studies used to justify such exclusions as flawed and discriminatory.

Rapinoe's involvement in such advocacy is consistent with her history as an LGBT activist, often making headlines for her left-leaning political views.

In a previous incident, Rapinoe called out a Christian U.S. soccer player for social media posts she deemed as immoral.

However, her advocacy contrasts with her experience in 2017 when her team, the U.S. Women’s National Team, lost 5-2 to the FC Dallas under-15 boys team during a friendly match preparation, highlighting the physical differences between male and female athletes.

This loss raises concerns about the impact of allowing male athletes who identify as women to compete in women’s sports, potentially affecting the fairness and competitiveness of women's athletics.

Critics argue that Rapinoe's advocacy, while well-intentioned, could undermine women’s ability to succeed in sports, as echoed by swimmer and women’s sports activist Riley Gaines, who criticized Rapinoe for "pulling up the ladder behind her."

The debate surrounding transgender athletes in women’s sports continues, with calls for a balanced approach that ensures fairness and inclusivity without compromising the integrity of women’s athletics.
