Val Whiting, a former WNBA player and two-time national champion at Stanford, expressed her viewpoint on transgender women (men pretending to be women) participation in women’s sports on Saturday night.

Whiting shared her perspective following a question posed to South Carolina Gamecocks head coach Dawn Staley earlier in the day as the team geared up for their national championship game against the Iowa Hawkeyes.

“A lot of my basketball sisters feel differently but trans women do not belong in women’s sports,” Whiting wrote. “It’s not fair nor safe for biological women. There has to be another solution for trans women to be able to compete athletically besides having them compete against biological women.”
