British former Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies said Monday that she knows of “quite a lot” of female athletes who are afraid to publicly share their concerns about biological males who identify as transgender women competing in women’s sports.

Davies told Sky News that she’s had “many” conversations with female athletes who are afraid to speak out, especially “people who are competing at the moment.”

“They’re worried that their governing bodies will frown on it, they’re worried that their sponsors will think it’s not PC and that they’re not allowed to do this,” said Davies, who won a silver medal at the 1980 Summer Olympics.

“And that’s what I think is wrong with this debate. Why should we label someone who has a different view as you as transphobic?” she asked.

Rachel McKinnon, a transgender cyclist who won a women’s world championship in October, has attacked Davies as a “transphobe” and accused her of “sharing hate speech.”

Davies emphasized Monday that her position on transgender athletes wasn’t about bigotry, but about “the right of women to have a level playing field.”

WATCH:

Davies’s interview comes as male athletes who identify as transgender women are racking up victories in women’s sports in the United States.

A top-ranked runner in NCAA women’s track is dominating the competition and setting records one year after competing as a man at the same level.

Two male runners are similarly dominating girls’ high school track in Connecticut.

High school juniors Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood took first and second place in the state open indoor track championships Feb. 16, and are among the fastest runners in the country in the girls’ 55-meter dash.

One of their competitors, high school junior Selina Soule, told the AP it was unfair to force female runners to compete against male runners.

“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” said Soule. “I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves. They should have the right to express themselves in school, but athletics have always had extra rules to keep the competition fair.”

    It is so stupid to be called a transphobic just because you are stating FACTS!!!! This is unbelievable that anyone even questions this. Our PC world has gotten so ridiculous!

    At the next track meet in Connecticut that features these two individuals, as the starting gun is fired, all of the female contestants should remain at the starting line in order to ridicule the whole event.

    Itt is the only way the losers can get a win in anything. It is unfair to women who are biologically not built with the muscle mass as a man. However when they started all this craziness they should have know they would take and take until they ruled women right out of winning period. They won’t stop until they do.

      That’s because… “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” Ecclesiastes 10:2

    Selina Soule: Honey, I’m sure you’ve been indoctrinated all your life! But, turn on the common sense! Being true to yourself means to be true to your biological makeup also! Those two guys who were running against you are not true to themselves.
