Popular South Carolina coach Dawn Staley is speaking out and expressing her backing for transgender athletes.

Transgender athletes


When questioned about her stance on transgender athletes in sports during a media session before her team’s game against Iowa in the women’s national championship, Staley shared her support.

Staley said


“You got deep on me, didn’t you?” Staley said. “I’m on the opinion of, if you’re a woman, you should play. If you consider yourself a woman and you want to play sports or vice versa, you should be able to play.”

That’s my opinion


“That’s my opinion. You want me to go deeper?” she said.

Potential criticism


Staley was resolute when directly questioned about whether transgender women should be allowed to compete in women’s sports, recognizing the potential criticism she might face.



“Yes, yes,” Staley said. “So now the barnstormer people are going to flood my timeline and be a distraction to me on one of the biggest days of our game, and I’m OK with that. I really am.”

Coach Lisa Bluder


Later in the day, Iowa coach Lisa Bluder faced the same questions during her media session but chose not to respond.

People are interested


“I understand it’s a topic that people are interested in,” Bluder said. “But today my focus is on the game tomorrow, my players.”

Important game


“It’s an important game we have tomorrow, and that’s what I want to be here to talk about. But I know it’s an important issue for another time,” she added.
