On today’s episode of “you can dish it out but you can’t take it, NCAA swimmer Riley Gaines absolutely owned a lib while testifying before Congress during the “Transgender Athletes in School Sports” hearing Tuesday, when she and Democratic Rep. Summer Lee (Pa.) got into a heated argument in which Gaines called Lee a “misogynist.”

The hearing was held to debate changes to Title IX that would outlaw bans against biological males who identify as female competing on women's sports teams at tax-funded institutions.

Title IX, as it's currently written, protects the safety and fairness of female sports. Men have an obvious physical advantage over women in most sports and it isn’t fair for them to be competing against women. Not to mention, allowing biological men to enter vulnerable and closed spaces like locker rooms or bathrooms where girls are present poses a safety risk to girls. Of course, leftists - including those in Congress - are more than happy to throw actual women under the bus in favor of metal deluded men.

Which is why all hell broke loose after Lee insisted that Gaines is engaged in “transphobic bigotry” after Gaines, who was once forced to compete against a biological male herself, stated her position that boys have no place in girls' sports - to which Gaines bluntly responded, "Ranking member Lee, if my testimony makes me transphobic then I believe your opening monologue makes you a misogynist."

Greg Price from State Freedom Caucus posted a video of the altercation on his X account, and boy was it spicy!

When it was the Heritage Foundation's Senior Legal Fellow Sarah Perry's time to speak, Lee interrupted to tell Chairwoman Rep. Lisa McClain (Mich.) that she wanted Gaines’ “words taken down.”

While members and staff hustled and bustled around her, Lee added, “Madam Chair, she’s engaging in personalities.”

“Could I just ask, how it’s fair to be called transphobic —” Gaines stated before Lee interjected, “I never called you anything.”

After a few moments, Lee was unsuccessful in getting Gaines' words taken down, and she withdrew her point of order.

So now, wait a minute - Gaines can’t call you a misogynist, but you can call her a transphobe? Isn’t calling someone a transphobe “engaging in personalities,” Ms. Lee? Not to mention, encouraging men to parade around as women and compete in women's sports is textbook misogyny. 

We need more people like Gaines to stand up for what’s true and what’s right. Men do not belong in women's sports.
