“Transgender women have no place in women’s sports” Black Lesbian Harvard Law Graduate Says in Medium Post that Was CENSORED for Hateful Comment

Monica Harris, a black lesbian Harvard law graduate, alleges that Medium, a popular blogging platform, censored her over an article she penned discussing transgender athletes in women’s sports. Harris claims her post was removed within a day for “violating community rules,” despite her belief that the content was “not hateful.”

In her post, Harris delved into the “impact of transgender inclusion on the rights of women and lesbians.” She highlighted the case of Lia Thomas, a transgender swimmer, and mentioned that former NCAA swimmer, Riley Gaines, felt she was pressured into not voicing her concerns.

Harris expressed shock over Medium’s decision, emphasizing the relevance of the subject and her personal stake in the issue as “a gay woman of color.”

In a subsequent column for Fox News, Harris remarked, “Much of my writing focuses on bringing people together around our shared values and interests. This incident is laced with many ironies, including that I’ve spent much of my life feeling invisible and not having a voice.”

The entertainment lawyer and Board of Advisors member of the Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism at Harvard Law, also stated that transgender individuals deserve respect for their personal choices. However, she feels the controversy arose when she highlighted the disparities in athletic capabilities between male and female bodies.

She also criticized the Women’s Sports Foundation for downplaying the significance of “transgender inclusion” in sports. “Think about the message this sends to female athletes,” Harris stated, highlighting the potential disadvantages faced by female athletes against transgender peers.

The issue of transgender athletes has been a contentious topic in sports. Last month, Gaines accused Harvard of pressuring athletes into supporting Thomas, who abided by NCAA rules while competing. Gaines referred to a letter sent to Harvard’s swim team as “emotional blackmail.”

Additionally, Paula Scanlan, a former teammate of Lia Thomas at the University of Pennsylvania, opened up about her experience with the university’s stance on transgender athletes in an interview with the Daily Wire. She alleged that the university suppressed dissenting voices.

The debate around transgender athletes in sports was further stoked by a bill pushed by House Republicans barring transgender athletes, whose sex at birth was male, from competing in girls’ or women’s sports teams at federally supported institutions. The bill, passed with a 219-203 vote, is unlikely to progress further due to anticipated opposition from the Democratic-led Senate and President Joe Biden.

One user commented, “That is not HATE SPEECH!! How can people just make things up and get away with it??? How is this happening in society?? She’s voicing a LOGICAL rational opinion. It’s not hateful.”

Another noted, “Good for her! Medium is wrong.”
