Martina Navratilova Dropped By LGBTQ Group Over ‘Transphobic’ Comments

Breaking News

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova has officially been booted off the advisory board of a prominent LGBTQ organization after making comments deemed “transphobic” about trans athletes. 

As we previously reported, the 62-year-old wrote a strongly-worded op-ed about why trans athletes physiologically born as men should NOT be able to compete against women. 

Martina said it’s “insane” and “cheating” and says people born with male physiology have a dramatic physical advantage over cisgender women

Now, the LGBTQ non-profit Athlete Ally has announced it has removed Navratilova from the group’s advisory board Tuesday — and blasted Martina in a statement. 

Martina Navratilova’s recent comments on trans athletes are transphobic, based on a false understanding of science and data, and perpetuate dangerous myths that lead to the ongoing targeting of trans people through discriminatory laws, hateful stereotypes and disproportionate violence.”

“As an organization dedicated to addressing root causes of homophobia and transphobia in and through sport, we will only affiliate with those committed to the same goal, and not those who further misinformation or discrimination in any way.”

“Given this, Navratilova has been removed from our Advisory Board and as an Athlete Ally Ambassador, effective immediately.”

So far, no response from Navratilova. 

In her op-ed this week, Martina says her goal is to make sports fairer — and based on her research, she concluded trans women (born with male physiology) have a distinct competitive advantage. 

She also warned in her article that people who take her position are being unfairly labeled as “transphobic.”

Joe Rogan ‘Ace Ventura’ Is ‘Insanely Transphobic’

Breaking News

Joe Rogan rewatched an old comedy classic recently — “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” — and pointed out something which seems crazy obvious now … IT’S SUPER TRANSPHOBIC!!!

The UFC announcer was talking about all sorts of issues with New York Times reporter Bari Weiss on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast this week when he brought up the 1994 Jim Carrey flick. 

“I didn’t realize how transphobic that f*cking movie is,” Rogan said … “It’s off the charts!”

Rogan says he hadn’t seen the movie in years, but when he sat down to watch it with 8 and 10-year-old daughters he quickly realized, “It is so insanely transphobic.”

If you remember … the whole point of the flick is for Ace to track down the former Miami Dolphins player who kidnapped the team mascot — and (spoiler alert) it ends up being the kicker. 

But the kicker, Ray Finkle, was no longer living as a man — he became Lois Einhorn. 

When Ace and Dan Marino crack the case and realize Lois used to be Ray — they cringe in disgust and everyone who had kissed Lois begins puking and washing out their mouths. 

Rogan asks the question … if places like iTunes should remove the movie from its library due to its offensive nature. Bari argued that it’s important to NOT erase movies like “Ace” but notes how far society has come since the movie came out. 

“When I saw that movie, I was 10. Transphobia was not a thing. Now it is a thing. That’s good. That’s good news.”
