Riley Gaines assaulted

Riley Gaines, former college swimmer, suffered a physical assault after making a speech about women’s sports in San Francisco.

The Riley Gaines assault

Riley Gaines spoke at San Francisco State University Thursday evening (April 6) on reserving women’s sports for biological women. Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point USA organized the event. After that speech, someone – whom witnesses variously describe as “a guy in a dress” or a “trans-woman” – assaulted her and struck her twice. Gaines supplied video and commentary on Twitter:

Apparently some protesters demanded monetary tribute from her.

Her husband was one of those witnesses:

She told me she was hit multiple times by a guy in a dress. I was shaking. It made me that mad. It makes me sick to feel so helpless about it. She was under police protection and was still hit by a man wearing a dress.

The police hustled her out of the venue into another room, and raised a barricade to keep others out.


Her spokeman said this:

Instead of a thoughtful discussion tonight at SFSU, Riley was violently accosted, shouted at, physically assaulted, and barricaded in a room by protesters It is stunning that in America in 2023, it is acceptable for biological male students to violently assault a woman for standing up for women’s rights.


This will not stop Riley from boldly educating people of the dangers of biological males in women’s sports. She will continue to speak the truth against the radical left that no longer understands the difference between men and women.

Claim to fame

Riley Gaines gained fame by tying for fifth place with University of Pennsylvania “trans-woman” Will “Lia” Thomas in 2021. But organizers awarded first place to Thomas, not Gaines.

Gaines also made recent news by directly challenging an anthropology professor to say whether he could tell the difference between a male and female unearthed skeleton. The professor replied, “No,” provoking loud laughter and catcalls. “But I have a Ph.D.!” he cried, to no avail.

Todd Starnes and American Briefing contributed to this report.

The “professor’s “Ph.D. needs to be revoked since he obviously did not earn it. There are a number of differences – both in the pelvis and ribs. If I remember what I read correctly men have one more set of ribs than women and the female is two parts, due to needs required in giving birth, where men’s pelvis is one piece.
