We Spoke With This Former Olympian About Transgender Athletes. Here’s What She Said

  • Former Olympic athlete Rebecca Dussault warned against allowing biologically male athletes who identify as transgender to compete in women’s sports.
  • “Every women’s record in sport will fall,” she warned in an interview with the DCNF.
  • Male athletes have been piling up victories in girls’ and women’s sports.
  • Dussault represented the U.S. at the Olympics and also won two world championships.

“Every record in women’s sport will fall” if male athletes who identify as transgender women are allowed to compete in female sports, former Olympic athlete Rebecca Dussault said in an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Forcing female athletes to compete against biological males will have a devastating effect on girls’ and women’s sports, which will, in turn, have a devastating effect on girls and women, Dussault told the DCNF over the phone.

Her warning isn’t a hypothetical: Male athletes who identify as transgender have been piling up victories when allowed to compete in female events. Democrats in Congress and on the campaign have rallied behind the Equality Act, which would require schools to allow male athletes into girls’ sports if the male athletes identify as transgender.

“Once a male body has gone through puberty, they have received the benefits. So the skeletal form, lung capacity, muscle density, the greater length of levers in their body, their muscle-to-weight ratio, their capacity to deal with dehydration much better, narrower hips, I mean you name it — they are physiologically designed differently than women,” she said.

In addition to competing in the Olympics, Dussault won multiple world championships and runs a fitness training business with global reach from her home in Iowa.

“We invest so much money into keeping sports fair, and this blows the cap off of it. Every women’s record in sports will fall,” said Dussault.

“I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt there are 1,500 men who on their bad day can beat Serena Williams in tennis,” she said. “There are 2,000 men who could outrun the fastest female sprinters of all time. So if one of them decides to compete as a trans woman, there you go.”

A paper published in the Journal of Medical Ethics in June found that male athletes who identify as transgender women have an “intolerable” advantage over their female competitors, even after suppressing testosterone levels.

The professors who wrote the paper support allowing transgender athletes to compete against female athletes, but argue that the only way to ensure fairness is to eliminate binary gender-based categories in sports altogether and find other ways of categorizing athletes.

“We cannot take the time to hyper-categorize people, it absolutely wouldn’t work to get into the nitty-gritty of categorizing people based on lung capacity or arm length or anything other than XX or XY [chromosomes], and maybe there can be a third category but it cannot encroach upon the dignified competition of woman vs. woman,” Dussault told the DCNF.

“It’s a sad day for sport if we’re going to just put up with this,” she added.

She said she wants to see more women speak up about protecting the integrity of female athletics.

“Where are the women who will stand up for women? There are so many women who will stand up for women’s rights in every other possible thing, but when it comes to sports, we’re just going to be spineless? Where are these great champions who aren’t speaking out on this?”

And it’s not just her fellow women that Dussault wants to see speak up.

“Where are the men standing up for this? Where are the men defending women’s sport?” she asked. “I’m sorry, but the men are fine and safe, they’re on high ground, but we’re about to go in on the undertow, as women in sport. And so, I call out the male champions there too: where is your voice? Where is your spine?”

  1. THOSE seeking to destroy America seeking these IFIOTIC insane trangender nonsense – Demented people

  2. Tyrants fear masculine men!!! This is why there is a war on masculinity: There has been a war waged by the Deep State to emasculate men so they are easily controlled and for the most part been quite successful. At one time society had categorized male population into two groups, type A or Alfa and type B Beta. I have discovered a third, category the PLM Pseudo Lieberal Male.

    The PLM male has been rendered impotent, castrated, and lobotomized by political correctness. He/It has succumbed to Globalist/Communist aka Deep State dogma having no mind of his own and fears competing against his peers!

    The PLM is more woman than what God created man to be. Instead of accepting or submitting themselves to lieberal dogma or worse, to another man, a REAL MAN would completely reject these ideas. Sadly in the LIEberal world of the PLM submitting themselves and their children to abominable acts is the norm which further erodes society!!!

    The PLM fears competing in the real world against their own gender against real men. The PLM seeks the advantage competing with women where he/it has the advantage!

    The Deep State seeks to emasculate men so they are easily controlled and for the most part been quite successful. The masculine male is a dying breed. We have been told for far too long that violence in never the answer. However this is moot when considering the promotion of Globalist aka Communist ideology.

    We have been told that it’s cruel to kill our own food. The Globalist’ aka Communists want us to consume processed food loaded with chemicals and GMO’s to weaken our bodies as well as minds. We have been conditioned to believe that there is no place in modern society for the man who refuses to shave his chest or wear skinny jeans.

    As a man we are the protector. As a man we are solely responsible for the safety of and well being of our family. How can anyone be a good husband if they cannot defend their wife? How can we be a good father if we are unable to protect our children? Remember the eyes of your children are fixed on you. You serve as an example of what young men should grow up to be…and what young women should seek out in a partner. The PLM has been conditioned to reject reality, responsibility, common sense, and is a follower seeking the safety and comfort of a large group – IMPOTENT!!!

    PLM have been tamed much like animals that perform at carnivals or circuses, responding to stimuli like promises of prosperity and safety. All that is necessary is the promise to blindly follow and obey their handlers.

    The defense mechanism of the PLM is to deflect, deny, and project his deficiencies onto those who are his superiors employ pejorative labels, or otherwise be obnoxious, believing if they continue to be obnoxious folks will just give in and allow them to have their way.

    These tactics are similar to what an obnoxious pet does to secure what it wants. I have some experience with obnoxious pets and people. Some of the tactics I use on obnoxious pets are frowned upon but they do obtain results.

    The three most effective ways to stifle pet dissent is to 1) get rid of the pet but since I do not back down from a challenge I opt for remedy no. 2 which is to take a garden hose to it until it is stifled. The third is if they become aggressive and physically attack you, (I have been assaulted by both animals and PLM clowns alike) you take them out to the north 40 shoot them and let the carrion take care of business.

    Dealing with obnoxious people is similar except for the hose I don’t use hoses or shoot them but nothing says that I have to acquiesce to being assaulted and not beat that aggressive assailant into the ground. Nor am I prevented from or assisting them in furthering their own humiliation. The PLM is easily manipulated as they do most of the work for me. All I need to do is to remind them how pathetic they are then let nature take its course

  3. How idiotic. They are men with mental disorders. Get real. You know that does not fit and God said it is an abomination. Do people really think they can get away with that rot? Trying to convince people a man with a chopped off penis or a woman wearing a fake one makes them the opposite sex is not more than stupid.

  4. They already have an Olympics for these transgenders, it is called the Special Olympics. Women need and should have their own category, just as men have theirs.
