Herschel Walker Rips Biological Men Competing Against Women in Sports: ‘Unfair and Wrong’

Georgia Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate Herschel Walker blasts allowing biological men to compete against women in sports in a new runoff election campaign ad that features former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines.

Gaines tied with transgender athlete Lia Thomas for fifth place in the women’s 200-yard freestyle finals during this year’s NCAA championships but was not awarded the fifth-place trophy.

“I’m Riley Gaines, a 12-time NCAA all-American,” the swimmer says in the ad. “For more than a decade, I worked so hard; 4 a.m. practices to be the best. But, my senior year, I was forced to compete against a biological male.”

“That’s unfair and wrong,” adds Walker in the ad.


“A man won the swimming title that belonged to a woman,” Gaines continues. “And Sen. Warnock voted to let it happen. Herschel Walker stands up for what’s right.”

“Warnock’s afraid to stand up for female athletes,” Walker, a former professional football player and Heisman Trophy winner, says in the ad.

Walker faces off against Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock in the runoff election on December 6.

LGBTQ activists condemned the ad that refers to transgender athletes as “biological males,” reported the Hill.

The activists are using the horrific shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado to draw political blame to candidates who want to protect women’s sports.

“Shame on Herschel Walker — and shame on every politician using LGBTQ lives as political props,” Nadine Bridges, executive director of the LGBTQ activist organization One Colorado, said Monday, according to the report.

Bridges continued the LGBTQ activist narrative that there is a relationship – what she called an “undeniable nexus” – between the shooting and the Walker ad that refers to transgender athletes as “biological men,” factual language that Bridges called “baseless and hateful rhetoric.”

Sarah Kate Ellis, CEO of GLAAD went as far as to demand Walker pull his ad about protecting women’s sports “immediately from Georgia’s airwaves before more lives are put in danger,” the Hill noted.

Ellis also called for gun control and the regulation of social media to protect LGBTQ individuals.

On Tuesday, the woke National Hockey League (NHL) came out in full support of transgender hockey players, tweeting, “The NHL is proud to support this past weekend’s Team Trans Draft Tournament in Middleton, Wisconsin. This was the first tournament comprised entirely of transgender and nonbinary players, with around 80 folks participating!”

“Trans women are women,” the NHL stated. “Trans men are men. Nonbinary identity is real.”

Last week, however, a federal district court in Texas rejected the Biden administration’s decision to reinterpret the word “sex” to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” in federal law.

“Female athletes deserve to compete on a fair and level playing field with other women, and federal law protects equal opportunity for women to excel in sports,” said Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) Legal Counsel Rachel Csutoros.

ADF filed a friend-of-the-court brief in August arguing for the court to protect female athletes from having to compete with biological men.

“We’re pleased the court ruled to not only protect female athletes, but also doctors who should never be forced to perform controversial and medically dangerous procedures that violate their conscience and religious beliefs. In its opinion, the court rightly stopped the Biden administration’s gross overreach of its authority and political agenda,” Csutoros added.
