Women’s rights activist Riley Gaines laid the blame on Democratic Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey after a disturbing incident involving a trans-identifying male athlete came to light.

The story, published by the Daily Mail, revealed that the athlete in question — who was filmed injuring rival female players during a February basketball game — had participated in several other sports on the women’s teams and had allegedly made lewd comments to girls while they were changing clothes in the locker room.

The Kipp Academy student, Lazuli Clark — who towers over most female competitors at over six feet tall — has competed in the women’s divisions in basketball, rowing, volleyball, track & field, and tae kwon do. According to Quillette, the student was allegedly suspended from the women’s rowing team at a private club after “leering” at another female student in the locker room, saying, “Ooh, t***ies.”

Quillette cited a leaked copy of a letter dated October 12, 2022, and sent by 15 parents to the United States Rowing Association, the sport’s governing body in America. That letter stated that the student had placed “near the bottom” when competing for the club’s men’s team and had subsequently joined the women’s team — but did not bother to shave and continued to wear the men’s uniform to compete.

According to Quillette, the locker room incident resulted in the student being “reported by team officials to the U.S. Center for SafeSport,” after which Clark was not permitted to row for either team again.

“Stop letting these pervs hide behind preferred pronouns and blurred out images. This photo was proudly posted by the school therefore it’s public domain. Name and shame them. Lazuli Clark is a man that sexually harassed women,” Gaines responded to the initial story — and then took aim at Governor Healey for allowing it to continue.

“These girls were forced to participate in his sick fetish at the hands of @MassGovernor,” she said.

Gaines went on to ask where the parents — particularly the fathers — were in this case, suggesting that they should be standing up for their daughters against the organizations, schools, and states that were allowing biological males to take over women’s sports.


“Where are the dads of these girls?” she asked.
