“Women’s sports is not a back-up plan.”
Some of surfing’s biggest stars, including Kelly Slater, have pushed back against transgender women competing in the gal’s div of sporting events, marking a profound shift in the prevailing winds of progressive tastes.
A little more than a week after Sasha Jane Lowerson won her second Western Australian log title, winning the men’s division as Ryan Egan three years previous, and after it was revealed trans-skater Lillian Gallagher had dominated a Red Bull event in Nebraska, both Kelly Slater and Peter King have come out against trans-women competing in women’s sports.
King, the former Momentum Generation pro surfer from La Jolla in California, and bandmate of Kelly Slater’s short-lived musical act The Surfers, wrote on Instagram.
“Nobody hates transgenders. Do you thing. Stay out of women’s sports where you miraculously win after being an average performing man.
“Women’s sports is not a backup plan where you can’t win a trophy (And $) in the men’s division.
“Leagues like WSL and sponsors like Red Bull will you now stand up to this now instead of harming women’s sports?”
King’s argument falls flat when applied to multiple division winner Lowerson, of course, although works a litter better when framed against the career trajectories of New Zealand Olympian Laurel Hubbard and swimmer Lia Thomas.
