Actor Rob Schneider calls for female athletes to refuse to play against transgender men

Women athletes should refuse to compete against biological men, actor and comedian Rob Schneider says, in reference to transgender men in women’s sports.

“This … has to stop,” he tweeted in response to a post about Payton McNabb, a high school volleyball player who urged North Carolina lawmakers to pass a bill banning transgender athletes born males from playing on female sports teams. McNabb’s advocacy came after she suffered a concussion and a serious neck injury after a transgender competitor spiked a ball at her.

“If the parents, coaches and ‘women’ athletes ALL REFUSE TO PLAY against these MEN … It ALL STOPS!” Schneider added in his tweet to his 1.5 million followers.

McNabb’s story was shared by NCAA athlete and activist Riley Gaines, who urged her followers to watch her testimony, adding, “I was honored to stand alongside her in N.C. to continue the fight to protect women’s sports.”

In her testimony to politicians, McNabb said she has sustained long-term injuries that now require accommodations as a result of the incident. “Injuries I still suffer from today include impaired vision, partial paralysis on my right side, constant headaches, as well as anxiety and depression,” she said. “My ability to learn, retain, comprehend has also been impaired, and I require accommodations at school for testing because of this.”

Schneider, a former “Saturday Night Live” cast member, has been outspoken over the years about his political views. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he criticized California Gov. Gavin Newsom, calling him an “emperor,” referring to the unilateral restrictions he put in place in 2020. Then, in November of last year, he urged those who were fleeing California to not bring their voting habits with them to their new homes.

“YOU moved out of California for a reason,” he wrote “Crime, out of control homelessness, taxes, your children being indoctrinated in schools, individual rights being trampled, etc.! So please don’t vote the same way to replicate the same … you just left!”

The 59-year-old Schneider talked about leaving California and moving to Arizona last fall, saying he fled The Golden State for a “slightly freer” state.

  1. You don’t even know what a trans man is. This is not a subject you need speak on if you don’t even grasp the fundamentals. What you ACTUALLY want is to force ACTUAL trans men into women’s sports and spaces. Y’all were very upset when wrestler Mack Beggs was taking on cisgender women and winning even though in your opinion, he’s a “girl”. So when things like that happen, you don’t get to be upset. You got what you wanted. Hairy, muscular trans dudes taking on women. Enjoy! I can’t wait for another trans man to snatch up women’s trophies and scholarships and be in their toilets and locker rooms. It’s going to be hilarious when one of you go to jail for assault or even better, accost a trans man like Mack and get your ass handed to you. Have a lovely day!

  2. Isn’t it interesting that the Kansas City City Council voted 11 to 1 to become a Sanctuary City with respect to the Transgender issue yesterday, and in an interview this morning the Mayor primarily said enforcement would be low in terms of city priorities. The mayor backed off on the importance, saying the Park department would not enforce state law with respect to Transitioning children, that in most cases it would have no effect on Medical surgeries, because according to him, that wasn’t happening. It would only effect children within the city allowing them access to puberty blockers and medication he thought would be beneficial for them. I guess we are glad that Kansas City does not control its police force.
