Megyn Kelly slammed the win by a biological male cyclist — who identifies as transgender-in the New York City women’s race and issued a challenge to college male athletes to put an end to this “disgrace.”
The host of the Sirius XM “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast on Thursday took to Twitter to express her frustration in the “farce” of yet another win by a biological male in a competition designed for women.
“I am begging — begging — any college male tennis player to put an end to this farce by declaring yourself trans & playing/easily winning women’s pro tennis tournaments,” Kelly tweeted to her 2.7 million followers.
“All it will take is one biological male to win women’s Wimbledon, French Open, etc for this disgrace to end,” she added.
The former Fox News host’s post included a retweet of the New York Post headline that read, “Transgender cyclist wins NYC women’s race days after other rider quits in anger at title loss.” The story focused on the win by a biological male who goes by the name of Tiffany Thomas. Thomas is 47, and the rider’s 20th win in a race came over the weekend at the Randall’s Island Crit. Thomas only started racing in 2018.
Included in the piece were comments from fellow female champion cyclocross rider Hannah Arensman, who has announced she quit the sport after being forced to compete against biological men in a sport for women.
