P J Media – Athlete Ally, a pro-LGBT sports group, severed ties with tennis legend Martina Navratilova, despite her longstanding advocacy for gay rights.
Her crime? She disagreed with the idea that biological women should be forced to compete with biological men in sports, and especially tennis. To Athlete Ally, this constitutes heresy against transgender identity.
“Martina Navratilova’s recent comments on trans athletes are transphobic, based on a false understanding of science and data, and they perpetuate dangerous myths that lead to the ongoing targeting of trans people through discriminatory laws, hateful stereotypes and disproportionate violence,” Athlete Ally said.
