Leftists are quickly attempting to take over sports.
Several leagues have bent the knee to progressive politics.
But a tennis legend uttered one word about the left’s assault on women’s sports.
The sports world started to get highly political when former Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner transitioned to Caitlyn and won an ESPY (ESPN’s annual sports awards show) for courage.
Since then, the politicization of sports has only gotten worse.
Now biological males are competing against women and girls in sports.
And tennis legend Martina Navratilova is speaking out against the increasing phenomenon.
Navratilova, who’s no right-winger, is openly gay and supports many progressive causes, but she recently said that collegiate swimmer Lia Thomas should have an “asterisk” in the record books.
Thomas, who was born William, was an unremarkable swimmer on University of Pennsylvania men’s swim team, then “transitioned” and competed on the women’s team.
Since then, Thomas has been breaking records left and right in short order.
Navratilova said of Thomas, “It’s not about excluding transgender women from winning ever…But it is about not allowing them to win when they were not anywhere near winning as men…But right now, the rules are what they are. Maybe put an ‘asterisk’ there, if she starts breaking records left and right.”
Navratilova is a leftist in many regards, but she and other old-school feminists suddenly find themselves on the side of conservatives when it comes to the transgender issue.
Harry Potter author JK Rowling is the biggest example of liberal woman getting massacred by the “woke” mob for believing that biological sex is real.
During a recent swim meet, Thomas dominated the competition, and the crowd did not begin cheering until the second and third-place swimmers touched the wall.

Leftists have tried to argue that males who transition do not have any physical advantage, but that is beyond absurd.
Thomas immediately soared to the top of the rankings among female swimmers after transition.
The sheer domination in this race (and significant progress in rankings) highlights the physical advantages biological men have when competing directly against biological women. Everyone has a place in sport, but this level of unfairness to be allowed is mind-boggling 🤯 https://t.co/KQhrOzRAHm pic.twitter.com/ytlTpaXdtL

It’s not just happening in swimming; female track athletes are experiencing the same thing.
The problem will only get worse if it is allowed to fester.
Next, a mediocre male collegiate tennis player will likely transition and dominate the women’s division.
