I think it’s safe to say where Brett Favre stands on the transgender topic in the United States.
The Hall of Fame quarterback said earlier this week that the United States was in a “better place” when former President Trump was in office. Favre, who noted he does not identify himself as “Republican, Democrat, or Independent,” said he didn’t agree with “everything Donald Trump does or says” and criticized his use of Twitter.
However, he feels as if Trump was much better in office than President Biden.
When it came to the transgender debate, Favre said biological males should not “use the restroom with girls.”
“To think that a young man who identifies as a girl, I don’t understand it — just hear me out — can go into a girl’s bathroom and use the restroom with girls, and for us to think that’s OK, I think is wrong. I’m sorry…” Favre said. “I just think some things we’re allowing in this country are beyond belief… Some of the thoughts and beliefs we’re seeing are crazy.”
Favre agreed with Jason Whitlock’s notion that biological men should not be allowed to compete against biological women.
Favre added that athletes need to speak up but are scared to do so.
“I think maybe the vast majority are afraid of what it’ll do to their career. And it’s not affecting them directly. Not yet, at least. Who knows where this country’s going? It may affect them somewhere down the road. Is it too late? I don’t know. It’s scary.”
In other news, the hall of fame quarterback revealed he is no longer suing former NFL player and national sports commentator Pat McAfee for defamation.
“I’m happy that Pat McAfee and I have settled this litigation,” Favre tweeted. “Like Pat said, he was attempting to be funny and not commenting based on any personal knowledge. We’d both much rather talk about football.”
In February, Favre sued McAfee for comments he made concerning Favre’s involvement in a huge welfare case in Mississippi involving millions of dollars in government funds funneled to the rich and powerful. McAfee, according to the lawsuit, called Favre a “thief” who was “stealing from poor people in Mississippi” on “The Pat McAfee Show.”
Favre still has defamation lawsuits pending against former NFL player Shannon Sharpe and Mississippi Auditor Shad White.GOOGLE NEWS.
