Outspoken former collegiate swimmer Riley Gaines slammed Democrat lawmakers who are opposing the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act.
The act seeks to amend Title IX, to prohibit federal funding to schools that allow biological men to compete in women’s sports.
During Gaines’ appearance on “Jesse Watters Primetime,” she said she finds it baffling that the “spineless” male lawmakers who have daughters were willing to succumb to political pressure while foregoing their obligations as fathers to protect their children.
“This is another question I tend to find myself asking, specifically and thinking about fathers… when every single Democrat voted in opposition of protecting women and girls in sports. In particular, I think of those dads who did that. Those dads, do they want their daughters sharing locker rooms with men?” Gaines asked.
“Do they want their daughters losing out on opportunities being asked to kindly step aside and smile and give away their trophy to a man? Is that what they want?” she continued.
The remarks from Gaines come after the swimmer stood atop the podium with biological male Lia Thomas during her appearance in a female swim meets.
