Jillian Michaels expressed concerns about transgender athletes competing in women’s sports, emphasizing the biological differences between men and women and the potential for harm and unfairness.

She highlighted specific cases, such as transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox causing physical harm to female opponents and transgender NCAA swimmer Lia Thomas’s dominance in women’s competitions.

Michaels argued that accommodating trans athletes while ensuring fairness for biological females creates a difficult situation that could ultimately harm women’s sports. (Trending: Melania Trump Announces Big Change For 2024)

She expressed support for transgender rights but stressed the challenges in finding a fair resolution for all involved.

“Sports is biological. It just is,” she said.

“And I think that you’re starting to actually see women get hurt.”

“Fallon Fox, for example, is an MMA fighter who is a transgender female. Beating the s— … out of biological women,” Michaels said.

“Like, this is beyond the fact of fairness. What we have trouble with as a society is ‘fairness,’ right? Everybody wants to be ‘fair.’ It’s not fair.”

“Here’s the problem,” she added.

“I understand it’s not fair to trans athletes, because where are they going to compete? It’s also not fair to biological female athletes. You have an issue, right? You’re not going to be able to be fair to everyone.”

“Like Lia Thomas is 6-foot-1,” Michaels said.

“The percentage of biological females who are 6-foot-1 is under 1%. Lia Thomas was number 400 when she swam as a male. And number one when she swam as a female.”

“We’re going to systematically destroy women’s sports.”

“I’m sorry, listen, if you want to be trans, I support you. I want you to have all the same rights that I do. But at the end of the day, someone’s going to get ‘effed here.”

“And if you’re looking at, okay, you’ve got X amount of trans athletes and X amount of women, you’re not going to win this one. Right. No one’s coming out unscathed.”
