Caitlyn Jenner is somewhat of an anomaly. Despite the former Olympic star being transgender, she has remained a Republican. The GOP, of course, has spent the last decade trying to strip rights from transgender Americans.
Still, Jenner is happy to amp up culture war issues. During a Thursday appearance on Fox News, she was asked about Lia Thomas, a transgender UPenn swimmer competing against women. Jenner slammed the athlete for being “woke.”
The reality television star told Fox, “First of all, I respect her decision to live her life authentically. 100 percent. But, that also comes with responsibility and some integrity. I don’t know why she’s doing this. It’s not good for the trans community.”
Jenner continued, “Her hands are bigger. She can swim faster. That’s a known. All of this woke world that we’re living in right now is not working. I feel sorry for the other athletes that are out there, especially at Penn or anybody she’s competing against, because in the woke world, you have to say, ‘Oh my gosh, this is great.’ No, it’s not!”
The former Olympian closed, “I’ve said from the beginning, biological boys should not be playing in women’s sports. We need to protect women’s sports.”
