Comedian Sarah Silverman advocated for biological males who identify as female to be allowed to participate in girls’ and women’s sports.
The comedian also called California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, a “t***” for acknowledging biological differences and advocating the separation of sports by biology instead of gender identity. Silverman even suggested Jenner, who is transgender, is transphobic.
“I saw Caitlyn Jenner saying trans girls should not play girls sports,” said Silverman. “Caitlyn, you’re a woman, right? A trans girl is a girl, she should have the same rights as cis girls.”
Earlier this month, Jenner told TMZ that the separation of biological males and females in sports comes down to “fairness.”
“That’s why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school,” the former Olympic gold medalist said. “It just isn’t fair and we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”
“If you think a trans girl — what, you think a trans girl is too strong?” Silverman continued. “What about tall girls as opposed to short girls? What about boys in high school who are teeny tiny and their teammates have already hit puberty and are shaving? Why don’t you just have co-ed sports divided by weight or height, ya know? This is so dumb.”
Contrary to Silverman’s argument, numerous studies (and any life experience) confirm the biological differences between males and females, such as the structure and size of our bones, lung capacity, and muscle strength.
As highlighted by The Daily Wire, for example, “[a] study in the Journal of Applied Physiology shows that men have approximately 40% greater upper body strength and 33% greater lower body strength than women on average. Overall, women have somewhere between 37-68% the muscle strength of men.”
Moreover, a recent study confirmed the biological athletic advantages men have over women even after one year of hormone therapy, which many LGBT activists claim would level the playing field for girls. The study can be looked at here.
“They are legislating this s*** without one single example of how this plays out,” Silverman claimed.
“This is not worrying about girls sports, believe me,” Silverman said, arguing that the acknowledgment of biological differences is just a cover for “transphobia.”
“I think there are better ways to worry about girls sports. This is not worrying about — this is not what that is, this is not concern for girls sports. It’s transphobia, full stop.”
“It’s just such a bummer when such a prominent trans woman is such a t***,” she added, referencing Jenner.
