In the transgender movement’s latest assault on women’s sports, a 29-year-old father of three emerged victorious against girls as young as 10 years old in a New York City skateboarding competition.
The winner of the women’s division of the Boardr Open and the $500 grand prize was Ricci Tres, who went by Richard before embracing transgenderism and starting hormone therapy.
To make matters worse, before competing against little girls in these sorts of competitions, Tres served in military combat.
“I’m not going to go and be easy on them because they’re kids,” Tres told the Daily Mail after receiving criticism for stealing the win from the young girls.
“It’s funny it’s what I am getting beat up over the most, people saying ‘You’re beating little kids, little girls,’” the gender-bending skateboarder continued. “I didn’t intend to do that. This is the first one I’ve been to that I actually wanted to win … the age thing doesn’t really count.”
According to Fox News, Tres’ request to compete as a woman in the Olympics was previously denied due to his testosterone levels exceeding the limit for female competition.
Tres also downplayed the significance of his presence in the competition by claiming he did not have a physical advantage.
“Look at me. I’m not buff or anything,” Tres remarked “I don’t think skateboarding has anything to do with physicality, especially when you look at kids these days.”
The 29-year-old biological male’s victory comes as the debate over the fairness of transgender men competing in women’s sports continues to attract national attention.
LISTEN TO TODD STARNES DISCUSS THIS STORY ON THE TODDCAST PODCAST:
Below is a transcript from the Todd Starnes Show.
STARNES: [00:46:39] So, ladies and gentlemen, there is a big competition in New York, a women’s skateboarding competition. And Ricci Tres, 29 years old, a man who is a woman, a man who is a woman, won the competition. Now, here’s what kills me about this. The 29 year-old was competing against a 13 year-old biological girl and a ten year-old girl. So they had a grown man dressed like a woman competing against these little girls. And the guy is now defending himself. He did an interview with The Daily Mail and he says, well, “I wasn’t going to go easy on them just because they’re kids,” he said, Mr. Trace, formerly known as Richard Batres, served as a second class petty officer in the Navy, was previously married and fathered three children. “It’s funny it’s what I’m getting beat up over the most. People are saying, ‘You’re beating little kids, little girls. Well I didn’t intend to do that. This is the first one that I’ve been to that I actually wanted to win. The age thing doesn’t really count. You’re a 29 year-old grown man competing against little girls. [00:47:58][78.9]
BAKER: [00:48:00] Dude looks like a lady. That’s all I think. [00:48:04][4.8]
STARNES: [00:48:06] Last year, Tres became the first trans woman. No, he’s not a woman. He’s a man, to attempt to qualify for the Olympic women’s skateboarding team. The biological testosterone reportedly tested too high to allow entry as a female. [00:48:24][18.1]
BAKER: [00:48:25] What a surprise. [00:48:25][0.3]
STARNES: [00:48:28] Sir, you need to shave your armpits. “I don’t think I have a physical advantage.” You’re 29 years-old and you’re a man. What do you think? Mr. Tres goes on to say, “Look at me. I’m not buff or for anything. I don’t work out. I just skateboard. And I don’t think skateboarding has anything to do with physicality.” [00:48:53][25.5]
BAKER: [00:48:54] I disagree. [00:48:54][0.2]
STARNES: [00:48:55] Yeah, I do too. I mean. Have you seen the videos where they’re like up on that rail, and they fall off and they land like a cowboy on a horse. That’s got to hurt. [00:49:07][12.0]
BAKER: [00:49:08] Like a cat on his feet. [00:49:09][0.9]
STARNES: [00:49:11] Anyway, people are really upset about this. And why, why are you upset about it? You people out there, you embrace transgenderism. New York City, you say this is about tolerance, this is about diversity. Well, there’s your tolerance in your diversity. Sorry, kids. You got beat by a grown man wearing a girdle. [00:49:27][16.0]
BAKER: [00:49:30] It’s a sad day for women’s sports. It makes me very sad. I’m glad I didn’t have to deal with this. [00:49:36][5.3]
STARNES: [00:49:36] Unbelievable. But this is what happens. [00:49:38][2.4]
