Former NCAA champion swimmer Riley Gaines was assaulted and held hostage by a mob of transgender activists after giving a speech at San Francisco State University on protecting women’s sports.
While competing in college at the University of Kentucky, Gaines faced off against controversial transgender swimmer ‘Lia’ Thomas, a biological man, tying with him for fifth place, Fox News reports.
Now, Gaines is a spokesperson for the Independent Women’s Forum (IWF), becoming one of the most influential voices in the movement against biological men in women’s sports, which has made her a target for the trans mob.
After her speech at SFSU, angry activists crowded the exit hallway, demanding money in return for her safe passage:

When Gaines made her way to the exit, she was met with loud chants and a raucous mob. Gaines recorded a video of the experience herself and posted it to 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,” Gaines wrote.
“Still only further assures me I’m doing something right. When they want you silent, speak louder.”

In another clip, Gaines is seen being repeatedly punched by a transgender – reportedly a biological male – wearing a dress.
Jordan B. Peterson, a frequent commenter on the subject, responded to the clip, writing, “Hey, progressives: how does it feel to be supporting men dressed up as women beating women?”

The violent attacks on Gaines are just the latest shows of aggression from the pro-transgender community.
Just last week, a transgender shooter killed three Christian children and three faculty members at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee; yesterday, a transgender was arrested before carrying out a plan to murder countless more kids at a middle school in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
