TERF Martina Navratilova Hosting BBC Trans Athlete ‘Debate’ Sets Twitter Ablaze

The Transgender community had the wind knocked out of us when we learned that a TERF, Martina Navratilova would host the upcoming BBC documentary “Trans Athletes: A Fair Playing Field?”.

Having Martina Navratilova, a venomous opponent of transgender inclusion host a debate on our participation in sports would be the same as BBC inviting Adolph Hitler to host a documentary debating the merits of genocide. There just is nothing you can do to put a positive spin on this, except perhaps a well-intentioned transgender athlete to lend authenticity to the ‘debate’:

Pink News reports that during the film, Navratilova meets Joanna Harper, a trans runner and medical physicist who advises the International Olympic Committee on gender.

It also features contributions from Sharron Davies, the former swimmer who in March called for the exclusion of trans athletes from women’s sports.

Doubling down on her rhetoric, Davies suggested in May that events could be divided by chromosomes rather than gender.

Martina Navratilova made it abundantly clear her opposition to transgender athletics in her article “The rules on trans athletes reward cheats and punish the innocent”  The Times February 17, 2019. In it, she recalled a transphobic tweet in which she said “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women,” she tweeted. “There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”

“”It’s insane and it’s cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair.” said Navratilova

To be clear Martina Navratilova is a Transgender Exclusionary Radical Feminist(TERF), one of the most toxic enemies of the gender nonbinary people. These individuals sole focus in life is to eradicate transgender people from the face of the earth using whatever tactics are available. Deceitfuly beguiling, befreinding trans people with faux affinity quickly followed with scorched earth warfare. This is TERF methodology.

Truly BBC producers, fuck off. Who the hell do you think you are? Shame on you.
