Jennifer Wagner — a female cyclist who lost a women's world cycling championship to a transgender woman last weekend — said it was "definitely NOT fair" that she had to compete in a race against Rachel McKinnon, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman.
"I was the 3rd place rider. It's definitely NOT fair," Wagner wrote on Twitter in response to a post about the race.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, transgender female Rachel McKinnon won the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships for the women's 35-39 age bracket in Los Angeles on October 14.
McKinnon — who represents Canada — beat out biological females Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen of the Netherlands and Jennifer Wagner of the United States.
Some biological female athletes say trans females have an unfair competitive advantage — both because of sex hormones and due to inherent strength differences.
Rachel McKinnon said it doesn't matter if transgender women have an unfair competitive advantage, because the most important thing is to make sure that trans individuals don't feel oppressed.
