She’s no punching bag: Libs renew attack on champ Ronda Rousey for her convictions about trans-athletes

Ultimate Fighting Championship Star Ronda Rousey improved her undefeated record with an amazing 30-second victory over Bethe Correia Saturday night, but “social justice” warriors were quick to remind Twitter users that she’s not PC-approved.

Ronda RouseyFocusing in on comments Rousey made about a transgender fighter participating in female divisions, the PC police flocked to Twitter in an effort to steal the spotlight from her impressive win.

In 2014, Rousey expressed concern that athletes who were born male might have an unfair advantage in women’s divisions after Fallon Fox, a fellow MMA fighter, came out as transgender.

“She can try hormones, chop her pecker off, but it’s still the same bone structure a man has,” Rousey said in 2014, according to SB Nation. “It’s an advantage. I don’t think it’s fair.”

Concern that Fox – who had a TKO over Tamikka Brents in 2014 that left Brents with a broken orbital bone, concussion, and staples in her head – might have an unfair advantage because of her biologically male characteristics left Rousey labeled as “transphobic.”

A sin apparently too great for the left to let go of.

Of course, the PC police apparently didn’t even do their homework.

Rousey expressed concerns about a transgender fighting in women’s divisions, but she certainly never refused a fight. In fact, she said she’d be happy to fight if the UFC allowed it.

But the “social justice” warriors on Twitter would obviously rather be outraged than objective.
