LGBT group drops Martina Navratilova over transgender comments

in informationwar •  4 months ago 

"Martina Navratilova has been removed as an ambassador by Athlete Ally, an organisation that supports LGBT athletes, following her comments on transgender inclusion.

In a newspaper column this week the 18-time grand slam singles champion referred to trans women as men who “decide to be female”, adding that allowing them to compete with women who were assigned female at birth is “cheating and unfair”. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/feb/20/lgbt-group-drops-martina-navratilova-over-transgender-comments?fbclid=IwAR1GCj2o_4pAYB1Vgjx-C-DAytUMJfzU3RplY2q-aqWpRwwU_8-_nxJQERY

Martina has been a great advocate for equality and freedom for all for many years. Sad that she has been put into a negative light for giving her opinion.
