Transgender cyclist blasts USA Cycling for revoking silver medal
USA Cycling has landed in the middle of a hubbub over transgender athletes after stripping a male-born cyclist of a silver medal won in a womenís race last week at the national championships.

Leia Genis, a 25-year-old cyclist from Atlanta, said a USA Cycling official informed her Thursday that her second-place finish in the womenís elite individual pursuit would be revoked, and pulled her from other events at the 2022 USA Cycling Junior & Elite Track National Championships...

...ďIt feels unreal that one year ago I had never entered a bike race and now Iíve raced and won in another country. Iím quite proud of myself,Ē Genis said. ďAll this to say, itís been a smashing start to my second season and Iím looking forward to more.Ē

This year, Genis has competed in eight womenís events and notched four first-place wins, including a victory two months ago in the Brooks Road Race, the Georgia state road-racing championship.

    It irks me to no end how she can cry "transphobia!" when it's obvious that by virtue of having gone through male puberty, her mediocre stint as a male cyclist has suddenly blossomed into her becoming a leading women's cyclist. Has she no decency, no shame?

    In any case, I'm pleased read that they revoked her second place award and disqualified her from the other cycling events.

    Btw, Sheri and I aren't the only transwomen who are appalled at the practice of post-male pubescent athletes competing in women's sports. We personally know three other transwomen who share our opinion on this.
