Riley Gaines Demolishes Queer Activist Who Testified To Senate That Men Can’t Beat Serena Williams
The former NCAA swim star Riley Gaines completely schooled a queer activist after the woke leftist outrageously claimed that men can’t beat Serena Williams in tennis.

Gaines Schools Queer Activist
Kelley Robinson, who prides herself on being the first queer, Black president of the Human Rights Campaign, went before a Senate Judiciary Committee for a hearing that was titled “Protecting Pride: Defending the Civil Rights of LGBTQ+ Americans” on Wednesday. There, she had the gall to say that Serena could beat men at the sport of tennis.
“There’s been this news article about men that think they can beat Serena Williams in tennis,” Robinson said, according to Fox News. “And it’s just not the case. She is stronger than them.”
Gaines, however, immediately shut this down.
“Both Serena and Venus lost to the 203rd ranked male tennis player,” she fired back.
Imagine the generation that went to the moon and thought it was mere decades away from conquering the stars watching this and knowing it’s a Senate hearing in 2023. pic.twitter.com/lXwVfeaHt0

Gaines Is Right
As per usual, Gaines has her facts straight.
Fifty-year-old Karsten Braasch beat both Serena and her older sister Venus back-to-back after he challenged them at the 1998 Australian Open. He did this after the confident sisters boasted that they could beat any male player outside the world’s top 200.
Serena, who has won 39 grand slam titles, has admitted the the British male tennis player Andy Murray, a three-time grand slam winner, could beat her “6-0, 6-0 in 5 to 6 minutes.”
“It’s true. It’s completely different sport,” Serena said in a 2013 interview with David Letterman. “The men are a lot faster, they serve harder, they hit harder. It’s a completely different game. I love to play women’s tennis. I only want to play girls because I don’t want to be embarrassed.”
Serena agrees with Riley Gaines.
She told Andy Murray to stop joking around when the woke Brit suggested they play a real match. pic.twitter.com/toxXrhJVR7

Martina Navratilova Weighs In
The tennis legend Martina Navratilova had a blunt response to the hearing in which Robinson and Gaines took part in.
“This is just sad,” she tweeted.
Gaines replied by saying, “I quoted you in my opening statement at the hearing.”
“There will always be significant numbers of boys and men who would beat the best girls and women in head-to-head competition,” the quote read. “Claims to the contrary are simply a denial of science.”
“Thanks for being such a force!!!” Gaines concluded.

Navratilova Fights For Biological Women
While Navratilova is a lesbian who is an activist for the gay community, she has also been fighting against transgender women competing against biological women in sports. Earlier this year, she celebrated the World Athletics for adopting a policy to exclude transgender female athletes from women’s competitions, saying that this was a “step in the right direction.”
“In the wake of World Athletics’ announcement, I think the best idea would be to have ‘biological female’ and ‘biological girls’ categories and then an ‘open’ category,” she wrote in an op-ed in The Times of UK. “It would be a category for all-comers: men who identify as men; women who identify as women; women who identify as men; men who identify as women; non-binary — it would be a catch-all. This is already being explored in athletics and swimming in Britain.
“Biological females are most likely to compete in the biological female category, as that’s their best shot at winning and it maintains the principle of fairness. With an ‘open’ category there are no question marks, no provisos, no asterisks, no doubts. It’s a simple solution,” she continued. “Once somebody has gone through male puberty, there is no way to erase that physical advantage. You cannot simply turn back the clock, for instance by trying to lower testosterone levels.”

This woke nonsense has gone way too far, and it’s biological women who are paying the price for it. If more women don’t start putting their feet down in the way that Gaines and Navratilova are, their sports will be completely taken over by biological men.
