Brittney Griner: ‘It’s a Crime’ to Ban Male Athletes from Women’s Sports

“Woke” WNBA star Brittney Griner has declared that it should be “a crime” for states to prevent biological male transgender athletes from playing women’s sports.

Griner famously spent 10 months in Russian detention on drum smuggling charged and was released after Democrat President Joe Biden traded her for a dangerous arms dealer.

She also said she would never go play overseas again.

She said: “I’m never going overseas to play again unless I’m representing my country at the Olympics.

“You know, if I make that team, that would be the only time I would leave the U.S. soil.”

“That ranks high on the list of things I’ll be fighting for and speaking up against,” Griner said when asked by an ESPN reporter about advocating for transgender athletes.

“Everyone deserves the right to play.

“Everyone deserves the right to come here, sit in these seats, and feel safe.

“And not feel like there’s the threat, or they can’t be who they are, or like it’s just all eyes on them.

“I think it’s a crime honestly to separate someone for any reason.

“So, I definitely will be speaking up against that legislation and those laws that are trying to be passed, for sure.”

When asked about how she stayed resilient during her time in the gulag, Griner said:

“Just digging deep, honestly.

“I know this sounds so small, but, you know, dying in practice and hard workouts. You find a way to just grind it out.

“Just put your head down and just keep moving forward.

“You know, you can never stand still.”

“It made me a little bit more comfortable,” she said of the support she received back home.

“It made me a little bit, have hope, which is a really hard thing to have.

“It’s a dangerous thing to have.

“Because, you know, when it doesn’t work, it’s so crushing.”

“I think that’s a big reason why a lot of people go overseas,” she said of the low pay here.

“That’s why I was there.”

“As much as I’d love to pay my light bill for a love of the game, I can’t.”
