Prominent Trans Person Rips Biological Male Athlete Who Pushed Female Competitor Out of State Finals

As an increasing number of red states are pushing back against medical interventions for trans kids, including irreversible surgeries that mutilate the bodies of healthy children, so too are many states taking action against the participation of transgender athletes in sports. In Texas, for example, Gov. Greg Abbott is poised to sign the "Save Women's Sports Act," which would require collegiate athletes at public institutions to compete based on biological sex. Texas already has similar restrictions in place for K-12 schools in the state. 

But elsewhere in the nation, female athletes are not being given the legal protection they deserve. In California, 18-year-old Adeline Johnson gave a thumbs down at the podium for her fourth-place finish due to transgender athlete "Athena" Ryan claiming second in the varsity girls' 1,600-meter run, kicking her out of the state finals. While media reports claim the gesture was toward Ryan, Johnson's school told the Daily Mail it was a response about her individual performance directed toward her mother and "should not be construed as a statement about her competitors." 

As our sister site RedState reports, Johnson would have come in last place had he competed among his biological peers. 

It turns out, he will not be the only male competing in the state track championships, either. 

The results drew the attention of Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner, who pushed back on men competing in women's sports. 

"As 'somewhat' of a track star myself, and a trans person, THIS IS WRONG!!! HELP ME PUSH BACK!" Jenner, who won a gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, said in response to the story. 

"And FYA trans ppl you are being used by the radical gender ideology cult as political pawns. That's all you are to them," Jenner added. 

Meanwhile, parents of students who competed against Ryan are too afraid to speak out due to policies against bullying that extend to students and family members, which could affect their child's ability to participate. 

"The student athletes' reactions are very tempered and controlled as much as they can because they're not allowed to show any reaction whatsoever to potentially not affirm what is happening," one parent told Fox News Digital. "We've been advised that anything that potentially can come off as bullying is a code of conduct violation. And so by CIF rules [the girls are] unable to speak out about this."
