Women refuse to stand at winnerís podium after transgender cyclist finishes in first place in womenís category

Mumford did not enter the event's nonbinary category

A transgender cyclist won the female category at a gravel race but stood alone on the winners' podium after the event.

The second- and third-place winners refused to appear at the medal ceremony after Lesley Mumford won her age group in the 100-mile Desert Gravel Co2Ut. Mumford was born a male and transitioned to female in 2017.

Mumford posted a picture on Instagram of her standing at the podium alone but smiling and holding the first-place medal.

"I have no idea why so many people bailed before the podiums, but they did," Mumford wrote after finishing ahead of 43 female athletes in the 40-49 division.

Mumford finished sixth in the race's overall female category.

The event did offer a nonbinary division, but Mumford decided to compete in the female category.

Mumford outpaced Lindsey Kriete by 17 minutes. Kriete finished in second place, while Michelle Van Sickle finished third.

Niether Kriete nor Van Sickle have publicly commented on their decision not to join Mumford at the podium.



For my money, this person is at least an idiot and perhaps an asshole. She should have competed in the non-binary division.

And thank you, race officials, for providing that option!

    I fully support the actions of the other racers.



  2. by HatetheSwamp on May 22, 2023 9:49 am

    Hear hear! Now, if the leaders of the trans political agenda would only listen to their own grassroots.


  3. by Curt_Anderson on May 22, 2023 10:18 am
    These top cyclists need to do more than boycott the podium. They need to boycott the competition altogether.


  4. by Donna on May 22, 2023 10:49 am

    Of course I agree with my wife Ponderer as well as Curt.

    As far as I know, there is no consensus in the TG community on transwomen athletes. All I can do is voice my opinion as I've been doing all along.


  5. by islander on May 22, 2023 12:55 pm

    And, naturally, I agree with Ponderer as well. All of us have made this perfectly clear multiple times here on SS.


  6. by HatetheSwamp on May 23, 2023 3:54 am

    As the one SS poster who follows the big picture, I'll add that anti-TQ LGB groups and activists go bonkers over biological males competing in women's sports.

    What's lacking in the conversation is effin ANYONE among mainstream trans political agenda leadership or among the trans-phile world speaking sense.

    *****

    If you want to understand why the anti-TQ LGBs are growing exponentially, it's over the sports issue and public school grooming issue and the bathroom issue.

    These days LGBs who ain't woke fit in comfortably.

    "ANYONE among mainstream trans political agenda leadership or among the trans-phile world speaking sense." -Hate

    Please list at least five of the "mainstream trans political agenda leadership" so that I can contact them them all with our disapproval of their actions in a really stern letter.......


  8. by HatetheSwamp on May 23, 2023 6:31 am

    Don't you know who prominent news media mainstream supporters of the trans political agenda are?, or do you think you stumped me? Let me know how they respond.

    1. Rachel
    2. Anderson Cooper
    3. Robin Roberts
    4. Nate Silver
    5. Don Lemon

    6. Sam Champion
    7. Pete Williams
    8. Shepard Smith

    There. That'll get you started.


  9. by Ponderer on May 23, 2023 7:33 am

    I see. So anyone famous who has ever spoken out in favor of transgender issues is instantly in the leadership of the "Trans Political Agenda". I see.

    You're an idiot, Bill.


  10. by HatetheSwamp on May 23, 2023 7:46 am

    So, tell me, po. Because the trans political agenda is well defined.

    Even though there are "little people" such as yourself who are not always in perfect agreement on the official party line, when Dem pols have to vote on this, they know d@ng well how to vote. They're nearly always unanimous.

    The real world truth is that the trans political movement is tightly organized. There's a very precise orthodoxy to it...even, especially, on the controversial issues. I'm sure that the Roman Catholic Church is jealous.

    Are you suggesting that when Rachel, for instance, speaks on trans political agenda issues it doesn't matter! C'mon man, gimme a break! All these people are woke, gay political celebrities. Of course they're influencers.

    You can call me an idiot. Fine. But, I'm right about this. po, you are not this stupid.

    What can become a problem with Democrats and progressives in general is that we tend to watch out for and want to protect the little guy. The minority. The oppressed. The disenfranchised. It pains us to see the helpless suffer. We want to defend the helpless or anyone who is suffering in any way that we can. And that intense inclination to be champions of the oppressed as we are can result in overreach sometimes.

    (I realize that I am talking gibberish to you right now since the whole concept of empathy is a foreign idea to you and all the other MAGA Republicans. Sorry.)

    In the case of trans athletes, I believe that the Dems and progressives are taking this caring to the extreme. They have gone overboard with it as far as trans women athletes competing with cis women athletes is concerned. In their reflexive attempt to protect and defend my minority community, they have neglected to adjust for certain nuances and problematic effects of always deferring to the minority in this case. They have let their empathy get the better of them.

    As far as the bathroom issues and transgender heath care go though, it's the MAGA Republican conservative side that has gone way to far. Which of course stems from the fact of their complete and total lack of any basic human empathy whatsoever. They have let their paranoid, bigotry-fed greed get the better of them.


    "The real world truth is that the trans political movement is tightly organized. There's a very precise orthodoxy to it..." -Hate

    You are somehow confusing the right wing media's single-minded, transphobic, propagandist rhetoric against us for organization on our part.


    "Are you suggesting that when Rachel, for instance, speaks on trans political agenda issues it doesn't matter!" -Hate

    It might interest you to know that she doesn't speak much at all about the trans athlete subject. I try to never miss her weekly shows. She and others on the network speak quite a bit more on the bathroom and trans youth health care issues as they come up. They are all fully on the right side of the bathroom and trans youth health care issues though. God bless 'em.

    But it's true that no one on MSNBC or any other left wing media networks openly promote the same opinion on trans athletes as we do. It's one of our pet peeves about these media organizations.

    But that may change soon. It's just kind of hard to turn your empathy off if you have it. Not that you'd know. But I think they will come around eventually. Nothing about transgender issues is going to be solved overnight.
