Former University of Kentucky swimming champion Riley Gaines replied to professor Katja Thieme’s post on X that initially blasted the swimmer.
The provocative post
Journalism professor Dr. Katja Thieme came under fire after her post on X. The University of British Columbia professor shared a video featuring Gaines and added the caption, “Hey, want to know one of my all-time excellent parenting ideas? Let. Little. Children. See. Penises. And. Vulvas. Of. Various. Ages. And. Sizes. In. A. Casual. Normalized. Totally. Safe. Way.”
There was more
Thieme added, “The world will thank you for it. And so will those children when they grow up.”
Gaines fires back
Gaines, who opposes transgender athletes competing with biological women, fired back, “You. Are. Deranged. And. Should. Be. In. Prison.”
The account went private
The former swimming champion added, “I’d tag you, but naturally, you made your account private.” Gaines also shared, “If you need a guest lecturer for your course, let me know. In the meantime, someone should check her search history.”
The two have a history
This was not the first interaction between the swimmer and the professor. Thieme previously posted on X, “Gaines gets tearful about the emotional effect it had on her that Thomas was holding the trophy which she had also won.”
A “sore not-even-loser”
Thieme added, “That’s just whiny. What a sore not-even-loser.”
The professor said Gaines was transphobic
The journalism professor also wrote, “Teenage girl on the swim team sees or claims to have seen a trans person in the nu..e in the women’s change room. Her anti-trans parent or parents kick into high gear.”
It further said, “They lean on coaches: Tell trans folk to change elsewhere. Coach says, no, we can’t, that’s discriminatory. They lean on the club admin: Send a warning message to all members that trans folk are using these facilities. Admin says, hell no, that’s crazy and would be very wrong. They contact Riley Gaines or other transphobes of their choice, they organize protests, events, meetings, hearings, and whatnot.”
Gaines spoke about Lia Thomas
The backlash after the latest X post forced Thieme to change her setting to private. Gaines, who publicly endorsed Ron DeSantis for the 2024 elections, recently shared that Lia Thomas, a transgender swimmer, was so “well-endowed” that Gaines had to “refrain from looking” while the two were in the locker room.
The swimmer tried to avoid specific questions
Riley shared in Bill Maher’s podcast, “We can’t unsee it. Being in that space with a male, it’s like a bad car wreck.” While the host tried to get as much information about Thomas as possible, Gaines responded, “I was trying to run away from this question.” She added, “6-foot-4 male. Use your imagination.”
Gaines does not believe trans women are women
Gaines also told Maher, “I think even using the term trans woman is giving Thomas some of our languages as women,” adding, “I think trans women is a subset of male. I do not believe trans women are women.”
The Riley Gaines Center
The Riley Gaines Center at The Leadership Institute is set to start its work this fall, and it is being promoted as the “fight the movement to erase women” while criticizing the “left.”
