Democrat Rep Jayapal Claims Transgender Athletes Don’t ‘Harm’ Anyone, Gets Debunked by Injured Female Volleyball Player

A seriously injured female volleyball player has fired back at Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) after the Democrat congresswoman suffered a faux meltdown and claimed male athletes competing in female sports don’t “harm” anyone.

Payton McNabb, a 19-year-old from North Carolina, was injured in a game by a male opponent who was competing as a female by “identifying as transgender.”

McNabb was struck in the face by a male player during her varsity high school volleyball match in September 2022.

The male player knocked McNabb unconscious in a spike—a move intended to hit the ball in the game.

The incident forced McNabb to spend months recovering from headaches and concentration problems.

She also missed the remainder of her volleyball season.

For the past year and a half, McNabb has been battling to recover from her injury.

She suffered from a neck injury, concussion, lasting vision impairment, and partial paralysis in the right side of her body, as well as mental anguish.

During a crocodile tears-laced “emotional” statement in the U.S. House, Rep. Jayapal spoke in opposition to legislation that seeks to protect women’s sports by male athletes from all-female events.

During Thursday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing over the bill, Jayapal falsely claimed:

“It is a tiny portion of people across the country that identify as trans, and not a single one of them is doing anything to harm you or your family.”

A clip of Jayapal’s “emotional” statement went viral on X and was shared in a post by McNabb.

“Just getting back from my second doctor appointment this week, a year and a half later, I’m definitely going to have to disagree,” McNabb said alongside a clip of Jayapal’s claims.

“My life is forever changed because of an injury by a boy.

“So yeah … men have harmed women in our sports.

“But as long as your feelings don’t get hurt, right?”

Riley Gaines, a collegiate swimmer-turned-advocate of preserving spaces for females, voiced her support for McNabb.

“Payton is partially paralyzed on her right side, her vision and memory are impaired, and her sports career ended prematurely because of a man posing as a woman,” she wrote on X, along with a video clip showing the moment McNabb was hit by the spike.

“Democrats who deny this is happening are evil.”

Gaines, a former University of Kentucky swimmer, was forced to compete against and share a locker room with transgender athlete Will “Lia” Thomas.

Thomas, a male, “won” gold in the female 500 freestyle at the 2022 National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) Championships.

Gaines is also among more than a dozen other female athletes who are suing the NCAA for violating Title IX, a federal law that promises equal treatment and athletic opportunities for women and girls.

The athletes’ lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Atlanta, alleges that the NCAA’s “radical departure from Title IX’s original meaning” is harming women by subjecting them to “a loss of their constitutional right to bodily privacy.”

“Title IX was enacted by Congress to increase women’s opportunities; therefore, no policy which authorizes males to take the place of women on women’s college sports teams or in women’s college sports locker rooms is permissible under Title IX,” the complaint read.

The female athletes also accused the NCAA of depriving women’s places, titles, and public recognition by permitting transgender players.

Transgenders “retained male advantage, size, strength, power, and speed” while competing on women’s sports teams, they note.

“The NCAA gives males who wish to compete against women the option to suppress testosterone to a level that is still above the highest level a female can produce without doping,” the complaint adds.

The lawsuit comes as House Resolution 7187, formally called the Protection of Women in Olympic and Amateur Sports Act, advanced out of the committee and went to the full House for a vote.

Sponsored by 27 Republicans, the bill would require all national governing bodies for amateur sports to “prohibit a person whose sex is male” from participating in exclusively female competitions.

This would affect sports events such as Olympic games and national championships.

Earlier in Thursday’s hearing, Jayapal invoked her own son who “identifies” as a transgender “girl” (boy).

She implored those who back the measure to question whether they could still do the same if they had a “trans daughter” (son).

“I am the proud mother of a trans daughter, and every time these bills come up, I ask you to think about what it would be like if your daughter was the one that you were talking about,” she said.

“What would it be like if you were telling her she does not have the right to be who she is?”

Rep. Becca Balint (D-VT), co-chair of the Equality Caucus, denounced HR 7187 as “a hate bill.”

Balint falsely alleged that the bill would “incite violence and ultimately remove trans people from public life.”

“I want trans girls and women [boys and men] to know: You deserve to participate and thrive in the sports you love,” she said.
