“Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us” is Donald Trump Jr.’s new book that was released for sale on Amazon.com on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
In it, Trump Jr. includes a cautionary warning about transgender athletes participating in women’s sports.
“When we allow mediocre men to compete in women’s sports, we do a disservice to all the hardworking young women who have fought to get to where they are,” said Trump Jr. in his new book that DailyCaller.com tweeted Thursday, Nov. 7.

Trump Jr.’s statement attracted numerous tweeter comments.
One tweeted, “Absolutely agree..it is shameful they are unable to compete against real men, so steal what women have worked hard to achieve…women athletes should be really pissed off that as the saying “they have stolen their dreams.”

A female Twitter member responded it is time this issue is brought up and stated that the participating female athletes are the true winners.
Thank you it is about time someone has made this statement I don’t believe these men who want to be women are winners I believe the women who came in after the men are the true winners.

Another stated that many girls would be losing their dream to make it to the Olympics.
A lot of little girls who dream of making a name for themselves in sports are going to lose that dream. Goodbye to girls dreams of making the olympics bc they’ll just be competing against biological men or “feel” feminine. It’s a joke and a huge diservice to women in the world.

“From track and field to volleyball to weight lifting, trans athletes are smashing women’s hard-earned records. Now, before the liberal elite go screaming murder, let me reiterate: I don’t care what outfit you wear or whether you choose to identify as gay, lesbian, or trans. What I care about is redefining fair practices, such as allowing men to compete as women in sports,” the U.S. president’s eldest son wrote in his book.
“When it comes to contract sports, there’s more than just our sense of fairness and lost scholarships on the line. This is where it becomes a safety issue,” wrote Trump Jr., as transgender men are increasingly competing in female sports and with women.
Trump Jr. referred to biologically male Fallon Fox, a retired Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter, who is now identified as a transgender woman.
“This wasn’t just a man who wanted to run races in lanes next to women. This was a man who was losing bouts to other men, so he decided he wanted to beat up women instead,” Trump Jr. wrote, alluding to Fox.
“In one of his last fights, against a woman named Tamikka Brents—who held on for a long time, considering the circumstances—Fox used his big hands to beat Brents into an early technical knockout,” wrote Trump Jr.
MMA can be an aggressive full-contact combat sport that involves striking and grappling—standing or on the ground—using techniques from all kinds of sports and martial arts.
“Hours after the match, doctors discovered that Brents’s skull had been fractured,” Trump Jr. continued.
“There is no universe in which that should be acceptable, nor is there anyone who can argue that it was a fair fight!” stated Trump Jr.
Trump Jr. had cautioned in October about letting biological males who identify as transgender to compete in female athletics. He stated that doing so “will destroy women’s sports and everything so many amazing female athletes have worked their entire lives to achieve.”
Biologically male athletes identified as transgender are racking up accomplishments in girls and women’s sports.
In Connecticut two high school juniors, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, who are biologically male, identified as transgender girls, took first and second place in the state open indoor track championships on Feb. 16 this year.
One of the female participants, high school junior Selina Soule said it was unfair to make female athletes compete against biologically male runners.
“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” said Soule, adding, “Athletics have always had extra rules to keep the competition fair.”
In May, Franklin Pierce University (FPU) runner CeCe Telfer, a biological male, won the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) women’s championship.
Rachel McKinnon, another biological male identified as transgender woman, won a women’s world championship cycling event in October.
Someone tweeted over what the liberals are saying about women’s rights.
Where are the libs who say they are for women’s rights? Seems to me their stance on this is destroying the ability of biological women to compete fairly. Why not have a separate class of athlete for transgender folks. Let woman compete with woman, men with men and trans with trans

The fact is congressional Democrats have repeatedly downplayed transgender athletes’ biological advantages in female sports, declaring that transgendered females do not have any natural advantage over their female competitors.
In May, the Democrats’ Equality Act made “gender identity” a protected category under federal anti-discrimination laws, ignoring concerns about the impact of the bill on female athletes. The act would force public schools to include biological males who identify as transgender girls in women’s sports.
But science says the congressional Democrats are wrong!
Science demonstrates that high testosterone and other male physiology provide a performance advantage in sport, indicating that biological males or transgender women retain some of that advantage.
A team of New Zealand researchers at the Department of Physiology, University of Otago investigated the scientific and ethical considerations of transgender women in elite sport.
Their research paper, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics and also on the British Medical Journal (BMJ) website, established that male athletes identified as transgender women have an “intolerable” advantage over their female competitors.
The authors—two bioethics professors and a physiology professor—observed “very little scientific evidence” to support the argument that “hormone therapy will mitigate the advantage transwomen may have in comparison with cis-women athletes.”
Their study showed that “retention of muscle mass could be compensated for by training or other ergogenic methods.”
They also cited research indicating “healthy young men did not lose significant muscle mass (or power) when their circulating testosterone levels were reduced to [below International Olympic Committee guidelines] for 20 weeks.”
