US soccer player Megan Rapinoe is ‘100% supportive of transgender inclusion’ in sport, calls opposition against inclusion ‘disgusting’

Soccer star Megan Rapinoe told Time magazine she supports allowing transgender people to compete in sports – and has called opposition to transgender inclusion in athletics “disgusting”.

“I am 100% in favor of including transgender people,” Rapinoe said, according to the outlet. “At the highest level, there is organization. In team sports, there is organization. And at the Olympic and professional level. It’s not like it’s free for everyone where everyone does anything.”

“Show me the proof that trans women get scholarships for everyone, dominate in every sport, win every title. I’m sorry, that doesn’t happen. So we need to start from inclusion, period. And as things turned out, the footballer said, “I have Confidence we can find out. But we can’t start the other way around. This is harsh. Frankly, it’s disgusting.”

Many Americans are vehemently opposed to allowing biological males to compete in women’s and girls’ sports.

The issue was highlighted when Leah Thomas, a male biologist, scored several wins against competitions while swimming as a member of the University of Pennsylvania women’s team—the school even described Thomas as “the first Quaker swimmer to win an NCAA singles title.”


The topic extends to include various sports. Figure skater Taylor Silverman spoke on the topic: “I’m an athlete. I’ve been skateboarding for eleven years and competing for several years. I’ve participated in three different competitions with transgender women, two of them second,” Silverman noted in a statement.

“A lot of this transient inclusion argument has been put through the tiny lens of elite sports,” Rapinoe told Time magazine. “That’s not how we need to frame this question. We’re talking about children. We’re talking about people’s lives. We’re talking about state government making Entire arrests of one kid in some states, three kids in some states. They commit suicide, because they’re told they’re gross and different and evil and wrong they can’t play sports with their friends they grew up with. Let alone trying to get rid of healthcare. I think it’s brutal.”

“I would also encourage everyone who fears someone is going to have an unfair advantage over their child to really step back and think about what we’re really talking about here. We’re talking about people’s lives. I’m sorry, Rapinoe said your kid’s high school volleyball team isn’t that important,” Rapinoe said. It’s no more important than any child’s life.”
