Tex Hollywood - March 8, 2024

Riley Gaines is the College Swimmer who has gone viral because she stood up against biological men competing against women in sport.

We're not a political site, obviously, I don't know anything about anything but logically speaking it's not really fair for a biological man to compete against women in any sport, no matter how hard they identify as being a woman. It's not even a conversation.

She has become the voice of this movement, defending women in sport and the conservative media have championed her.

She was even at the State of the Union last night - because she's made such a dent in this fight, that really shouldn't be a fight.

Her dad was an football player, her mom a college softball player and she started swimming at 4 and dedicated 18 years to her sport, was having the year of her swimming career around covid times, had to leave school in Kentucky and went home to Tennessee where she trained, before heading back to school

She was on the road to win a national championship, she was second behind a strong swimmer she knew, but then Lea Thomas jumped into the sport and was winning by body lengths, because Lea Thomas was born a man. Ranked 460 as a man in the sport, became number 1 in the woman and that is just not fair. So she spoke out.

That's her back story, she's fighting for women in sports, not in a hateful way, but in a logical way and it is International Women's Day, she was on Rogan, perfectly timed for International Woman's Day so check it out.

Definitely worth a listen to hear the perspective from a woman:
