U.S. women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe has clearly gone all-in by accepting every far-left assertion about transgenderism, as evidenced by her recent remarks on the topic.
In addition to wilfully ignoring the biological differences between men and women, she claimed that those who disagree with her extreme position are endangering the lives of trans people.
She specifically cited comedian Dave Chappelle, who has referenced transgenderism in some of his recent specials.
Asserting that she did not “want to mince words about it,” Rapinoe claimed: “Dave Chappell e making jokes about trans people leads to violence, whether it’s verbal or otherwise, against trans people.”
Of course, her remarks omitted the fact that the only identifiable act of violence resulting from Chappelle’s act came when the comedian himself was attacked while on stage last year.
Dave Chappelle got attacked on stage tonight and the attacker got his ass beat.
Chapelle made a joke saying it was a "trans man" (no indication if it was) and probably going to get a lot of crap for it now.

Rapinoe went on to denounce fellow athletes and commentators who have been critical of rules allowing biological men to compete in women’s sports.
“When Martina [Navratilova] or Sage [Steele] or whoever are talking about this, people aren’t hearing it just in the context of elite sports,” she said. “They’re saying, ‘The rest of my life, this is how I’m going to treat trans people.’”
Claiming that women’s sports has become “weaponized,” Rapinoe went on to assail efforts to restore fairness.
“That’s total bulls***,” she claimed. “And show me all the trans people who are nefariously taking advantage of being trans in sports. It’s just not happening.”
Rapinoe, who says she will be retiring from the sport after the current season, went on to note that she would support a biological male taking the place of a female soccer player trying to follow in her footsteps.
“I see trans women as real women,” she said in response to a question on the topic. “What you’re saying automatically in the argument — you’re sort of telling on yourself already — is you don’t believe these people are women. Therefore, they’re taking the other spot. I don’t feel that way.”
After being called out by Rapinoe earlier, Navratilova got the final word. In response to a social media post confirming the soccer player’s push to replace other women with transgender players, the tennis legend wrote
