USA Boxing has introduced new guidelines allowing transgender women to compete against biological women under specific conditions.

OutKick host Riley Gaines criticized the policy, arguing that it compromises the safety of women and represents a regressive and misogynistic step.

Gaines emphasized that the policy glorifies men for physically competing against women and does not signify progress. (Trending: Trump Announces Heartbreaking Melania-Related Health Update)

“Of course, we all know this. I don’t even have to have a science degree to know this. This is basic common knowledge. And let me be the first to say women are not just a testosterone level,” Gaines said.

“And we’re not just men who merely don’t have male genitalia, which is the policy that USA Boxing has in place now. Of course, we know in regard to this topic, we know about the unfair competition aspect. But the safety of women has been compromised by USA Boxing’s new policies and guidelines.”

“And I think my biggest problem with this new implementation is that we are now glorifying men — we’re calling them champions, we’re giving them titles, they’re winning prize money — for punching women in the face.”

“That’s the purpose of boxing or MMA, any fighting sport that requires physical contact like boxing does. We’re glorifying that. We’re calling it progressive. Make no mistake, this is not progress.”

“This is not moving us in the positive, forward direction. This is incredibly regressive. This is taking us back in time and it’s utterly misogynistic.”

The guidelines require transgender female boxers to meet certain criteria, including hormone testing and documentation, as well as maintaining low testosterone levels for a specified period before being eligible to compete.
