Riley Gaines, a former NCAA champion swimmer, was attacked and held hostage by a group of transgender activists after speaking on behalf of women’s sports at San Francisco State University.
Gaines squared battle against notorious transgender swimmer ‘Lia’ Thomas, a biological guy, when competing in college at the University of Kentucky, tied with him for fifth place.
Gaines is now a spokeswoman for the Independent Women’s Forum and has emerged as one of the most significant figures in the push to ban biological men from participating in women’s sports, making her a target of the transphobic mob.
Angry protestors gathered in the exit hallway after her address at SFSU, demanding cash in exchange for her safe passage.
Gaines encountered a rowdy crowd and loud chanting as she made her way to the door. Gaines self-shot a video of the event and shared it on Twitter.
“The prisoners are running the asylum at SFSU…I was ambushed and physically hit twice by a man. This is proof that women need sex-protected spaces. Still only further assures me I’m doing something right. When they want you silent, speak louder.”

The aggressive acts against Gaines are only the most recent from the pro-transgender community.
Just last week, a transgender gunman opened fire on The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee, killing three Christian students and three teachers. Yesterday, a transgender was detained before carrying out a plan to kill countless further students at a middle school in Colorado Springs.
