Football legend Brett Favre blasted the Olympics for letting biological male athletes compete in women’s sports as “transgenders.”
The Daily Wire reports:
Favre made the comments in relation to the announcement earlier this week of former men’s weightlifter Laurel Hubbard being permitted to compete in the upcoming Olympic Games against biologically female competitors. Hubbard’s representation of New Zealand makes the weightlifter the first openly transgender athlete at the Games.
“It’s a man competing as a woman,” Favre said on his podcast, Fox News reported. “That’s unfair. It’s not fair for a man, even if this person wants to be a woman or feels compelled — if you want to become the opposite sex, that’s fine. I got no problem with it. But you can’t compete against — males cannot compete against females.”
“If I was a true female — I can’t believe I’m saying that — and I was competing in weightlifting and lost to this person, I would be beside myself,” he continued.
Regarding Chelsea Wolf, a “transgender” BMX olympian who wanted to win a medal in order to burn the United States flag, Favre said, “I wouldn’t have her participate in my Olympics; go participate for somebody else. To say that is such a slap in our country’s face. I can’t believe this person can be allowed to participate for our country.”
