Megyn Kelly slammed “queer affirming” people who are backing Penn swimmer, Lia Thomas, a biological male who identifies as a female, competing against biological women, and suggested that sending a white man to compete against women of color might put an end to “the nonsense.”

During Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast Tuesday, the host was joined by guest political commentator Dave Rubin and the two talked about the insanity of allowing Thomas, a white biological male, to compete against biological women in collegiate level races. The two agreed that rather than fighting people who think it’s fine, they should just “accelerate the nonsense” to bring it to an end. That exchange starts at the 26:08 minute mark.

“This is the same way I feel about all these people who are like ‘it’s fine for Lia Thomas to swim against the biological women,'” Kelly explained. “‘You know, ‘Be more queer affirming,’ right? ‘Stop with your objections.’ I’m like, ‘Great let’s do this thing.’ Let’s get a white male tennis player who couldn’t make it on the pro-circuit who then says he’s trans and enters professional women’s tennis.”

“And let’s put him up against Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams and say he’s a woman and crush them,” she added. “And put these people, these sort of queer affirming, shaming everybody else, people in the toughest position of their life. ‘We know he’s secretly a white man and yet he’s beating all of our best women of color, what the hell should we do?'”


Rubin said Kelly was probably being “slightly tongue in cheek,” but agreed with her that we should “accelerate their nonsense.”

“Because that’s where it all ends,” Rubin shared and she agreed.  “That is where it ends. I kid you not, I am 45-years-old. I have a torn ACL in my left knee. I’m pretty sure that if I said I was a woman I could make the WNBA. They’re not that great.”

“At some point there is going to be a washed up NBA player who’s 39-years-old with banged up knees, and a bad back, who can’t get a contract anymore and he’s gonna say my name is not Charles anymore … and he’s going to be in the WNBA,” he added.  “And all of the feminists are going to go, ‘Oh my God, look at that beautiful woman dunking all over the other chicks.'”

The former Fox News host agreed we should “accelerate the nonsense” and said that it “would be so fun to see.”

“Like truly, what does professional tennis do?” Kelly shared. “If these women who they’ve lauded, who they’ve made professional stars out of … in part based on their backstory, based on their race, based on whatever, certainly gender. If they start losing to somebody’s who’s biologically male.”

“Who just declares, ‘I’m no longer, I’m trans,'” she added. “I’m bringing my penis and my white skin over into women’s tennis. I hope it happens. I really hope it happens. I hope somebody decides to do it. And then we’ll see. Then the rubber meets the road.”
