USA Boxing, the national governing body for Olympic-style boxing, has revised its rulebook to allow men to compete with women. He must first, among other things, meet certain hormonal standards.
"You don't even have to have a science degree to know this," she told Fox News. "This is basic, common knowledge. Women are not just a testosterone level, and we're not just men who merely don't have male genitalia, which is the policy the USA Boxing has in place now."
Her issue, she said, is more than just the unfair competition aspect.
"The safety of women has been compromised by USA Boxing's new policies and guidelines, and I think my biggest problem with this new implementation is now we are glorifying men," Gaines continued. "We're calling them champions. We're giving them titles. They're winning prize money for punching women in the face. We're glorifying that, and we're calling it progressive," when it is incredibly regressive.
4Winds USA's Steve McConkey, who started world-class track and field ministries with his wife back in 1981, says this is a relatively new issue.
"Back in that day, this would be unheard of," he says. "It's amazing how the radicals got into sports and used sports as a vehicle to promote the LGBTQ agenda."
In 2003, when his organization started fighting the transgender movement, he was told by a U.S. Olympic attorney that nothing would ever come of it. Now, 20 years later, he admits that he is "pretty surprised" by USA Boxing's move.
He does not think it happened naturally or by mistake, but he suspects money, power, and fear have had a lot to do with the regression. Science and sense, however, have not.
"[Whether] they're taking hormones or not, 30% of men who claim to be women have more strength than women as a rule," McConkey notes.
As for why this is pushed so heavily on society today, he does not think it has anything to do with athletics.
"I don't even think they care about transgenders, to be honest," McConkey concludes. "I think it's a Marxist attack on the family. They use sports as a vehicle to get this out to harm the family. We don't know the total motivations of why they're doing this, but sometimes you wonder if there's some big donors or something on the outside that are influencing this."
