Former NCAA swimmer Riley Gaines recently participated in a Bible discussion when she got mocked for her renowned fight for women’s rights. However, the 23-year-old did not back off from giving a befitting reply to the fan.

“You sound just like the authority figures who told me to “be quiet” when faced with the injustice of a man in our sports and locker rooms. No.”Riley Gaines hits back at the transgender community for criticizing her
