Conservative talk show host Michael Medved has slammed the first openly transgender college basketball athlete, calling Kye Allums's participation in collegiate sports "[a]n insane level of political correctness."
Allums, who came out as transgender in a recent interview with Outsports, has been embraced by George Washington University teammates and has not yet transitioned.
"This absurd situation means either that the athletic officials inexplicably allow a man to play on a woman’s team, or else they don’t really consider Allums a man," Medved wrote. "The Allums example suggests that we take athletic competition too seriously to allow gender classification based on feelings alone."
