A 25-year-old transgender cheerleader, who is biologically male, was criminally charged last week for allegedly choking a 17-year-old teenage teammate at a cheerleader camp. Fox News said the incident occurred at Ranger College in Texas after the teammate reportedly called Averie Chanel Medlock “a man” and declared that Medlock should not be on the team, but Averie claims he was just yelling and not getting physical, and never assaulted anyone. The two stories are conflicting, so this is the latest information available.
WATCH the video about it:
“Well guys I’m officially retired as a cheerleader as of last night at 5:30 AM. A girl on the team was being very disrespectful and told me I am a MAN with a PENIS and that [guys] should not be on the team,” transgender cheerleader, Averie Chanel Medlock, posted on her personal Facebook. “I stood up for myself and she called her mom and dad because she was scared because I [stood] up for myself. Her father stated, ‘she still has testosterone and a penis and I will kill anyone who comes after my daughter,’” she continued.
The official report states that Medlock claimed that the teammate had made transphobic and racist remarks before the alleged incident occurred. The video also showed that other cheerleaders tried to hide from Medlock. Medlock reportedly stated that the alleged physical confrontation was a joke. Nonetheless, law enforcement officials charged Medlock with assault and removed her from campus.
The father of the girl who was allegedly attacked by Medlock is now requesting that law enforcement release all relevant video footages of the incident. “I ask you what you would have done when receiving a phone call at 1 o’clock in the morning from your daughter stating they had locked themselves in the room with other girls,” he wrote on his social media. He also stated that he never made any remarks about Medlock’s “race or gender.”
The incident arises as the issue of biological males competing with biological females in sports has made headlines over the past years, including the most recent case involving University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas.
In a recent interview with Fox News, University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines spoke out against Thomas’ participation in the sport, saying that when the students competed against Thomas at the NCAA Championships, they were not “warned” that Thomas would be sharing a locker room with them and undressing in front of them.
“People just weren’t really talking about it. And so we get to NCAAs, it was at Georgia Tech, and so we get there, and the environment is nothing like I’ve ever seen before,” Gaines recalled. “It was so, like, almost edgy. Like people didn’t really know what to say, who to say what to, how to feel.”
“This was on day one,” she continued, “and then that night we watched Lia Thomas win a national title and blow all the other females completely out of the water. And that next day we came back and the mood had shifted to where people were mad. The girls, you know, there were tears, these poor ninth and seventeenth place finishers who missed out on being named an All-American, there’s extreme discomfort in the locker room.”
In some good news for women, transgender swimmer and biological male, Lia Thomas did NOT win the NCAA woman of the year award.
