Commenting on the ongoing controversy of transgender women (biological males) competing against real women in sports, former Olympic gold-winning decathlete Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner, tweeted, "biological boys should not compete against biological girls…this Woke world we’re living in right now isn’t working."
I’ve said from the beginning, biological boys should not compete against biological girls…this Woke world we’re living in right now isn’t working.— Caitlyn Jenner (@Caitlyn_Jenner) January 19, 2022
Jenner, a biological male, transitioned to a transgender female several years ago. He is now 72 years old.
In a Jan. 19 tweet, Jenner wrote, "I’ve said from the beginning, biological boys should not compete against biological girls…this Woke world we’re living in right now isn’t working."
Then, on Fox News Channel's America Reports, hosted by Sandra Smith, Jenner said, "Biological boys, I've said from the beginning, should not be playing in women's sports. We need to protect women’s sports."
Jenner adder that this discussion now has been brought about because of transgender female swimmer Lea Thomas. "I don't know why she's doing this," said Jenner. "It's not good for the trans community. ... It's also not good for women's sports."
"It's unfortunate that this is happening," said Jenner. ""She knows when she’s swimming she’s beating the competition by two laps. She was born a biological boy. She was raised as a biological boy. Her cardiovascular system is bigger, her respiratory system is bigger, her hands are bigger, she can swim faster. That’s a known."
"All of this woke world that we are living in right now is not working," said Jenner. "I feel sorry for the other athletes that are out there, especially at Penn or anybody she’s competing against because in the woke world you have to say,‘Oh, my gosh, this is great 'and on and on and on. No, it’s not."
"We need to protect women’s sports and the NCAA needs to make the right decision tomorrow, and I think that is probably to stop this right now," added Jenner. "Rethink it."
The NCAA currently is reviewing its policy on transgender athletes, particularly in response to Lea Thomas's wins against real female swimmers.
In a final question, Sandra Smith asked Jenner about President Biden's upcoming press conference (then on Wednesday). Jenner said he had no interest in watching it and added that it likely will be "a scam."
