The poster child for selfishness and delusion predictably waded into the battle for truth and decency by making outlandish claims against the so-called bigots who want to preserve children’s innocence and approach gender dysphoria with compassion.
Megan Rapinoe, the pink-haired whiner that is wrong about everything, ranging from kneeling for anthems for fabricated social justice reasons or demanding pay parity despite losing to adolescent boys on the pitch, now has a strong, albeit horribly wrong, opinion on the issue of allowing men to compete alongside women.
Providing an interview the same day that FINA, the international organization that regulates swimming, essentially banned Lia Thomas from women’s events, Rapinoe put words together that sound empathetic but are merely couched in meaninglessness.
Megan Rapinoe comes out forcefully for trans inclusion in sports and health care.
"We’re putting everything through God forbid a trans person be successful in sports. Get a grip on reality and take a step back."

“I’m 100% supportive of trans inclusion,” she began. “People do not know very much about it. We’re missing almost everything. Frankly, I think what a lot of people know is versions of the right’s talking points because they’re very loud. They’re very consistent, and they’re relentless.”
It’s worth asking: What’s not to get? Men compete with men and women compete with women. It sounds like Rapinoe’s side doesn’t “know very much about it.”

“At the highest level, there is regulation. In collegiate sports, there is regulation. And at the Olympic and professional level. It’s not like it’s a free-for-all where everyone’s just doing whatever…”
“And I think people also need to understand that sports is not the most important thing in life, right? Life is the most important thing in life. And so much of this trans inclusion argument has been put through the extremely tiny lens of elite sports. Like that is not the way that we need to be framing this question. We’re talking about kids. We’re talking about people’s lives. We’re talking about the entire state government coming down on one child in some states, three children in some states. They are committing suicide, because they are being told that they’re gross and different and evil and sinful, and they can’t play sports with their friends that they grew up with. Not to mention trying to take away health care. I think it’s monstrous.”
It’s so tiring listening to these newspeak talking points. The emotional blackmail entailed in defending physical and chemical mutilation and castration, as well as the overt sexualization of minors, lest everyone commit suicide, is so deeply immoral and flawed. In short, these horrible statistics do not change after life-altering procedures are undergone. If there were truly compassion from the likes of Rapinoe, they would recognize this and seek alternative pathways for support. Ineatd, they hide behind the banner of inclusion and thus resign every person suffering from gender dysphoria to an inevitable fate.
Where Rapinoe really lies is in her concluding remarks:
“Show me the evidence that trans women are taking everyone’s scholarship, are dominating in every sport, are winning every title.”
In what world has this been the argument against trans inclusion? As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” This is exactly the point when we take a stand against even one “Lia” Thomas.
And of course, Rapinoe pretends that “it’s just sports” when in fact this is a grotesque effort to normalize everything. If we capitulate this battle in sports, then there is no winning anywhere else.
