Former NFL star speaks up for his daughters and against biological males competing in women's sports

"Don’t make this a human rights issue – this is a biological issue. Simple as that. Trust me, I am a man," the NFL Pro Bowler said.

In a video posted to Instagram on Sunday, former NFL star Marcellus Wiley spoke out against the inclusion of biological males competing in women’s sports.

"I have no issue with transgenders. I do have an issue with athletes who are transgendered trying to participate going from a transition of a man to a woman and now playing with the women," Wiley began.

"And, I will say that. You all can try to Dave Chappelle me all you want. I am very clear on this. You can be a transgender. You can be the homie, but I’ll be damned if a male at birth turns into a female and tries to compete against my daughters. She ain’t out there. We out," Wiley continued.

"Don’t make this a human rights issue – this is a biological issue. Simple as that. Trust me, I am a man," the NFL Pro Bowler added.

The former Buffalo Bills and San Diego Chargers player proposed that transgender women compete against the men to "empower women," "since you so damn bad."

"Like if I were me, Marcellus, and then tomorrow I’m Martha, I change up my gender, I’m now a woman, you know what I would try to do? Compete against the dudes. Why? Because that’s empowering," he said.

Referencing the 100-meter dash world record for women, set by American runner Florence "Flo-Jo" Delorez Griffith Joyner, being 10.49 seconds, Wiley stated that the men’s record is nearly a second faster, at 9.58, set by Jamaican runner Usain Bolt.

"Why use objective numbers? Because it’s pretty easy to digest. I hate saying fair. It’s not even right. Forget fair, it’s not right," Wiley concluded.

Wiley received support for his statement on social media by other sports figures, including American surfer Bethany Hamilton, who earlier this month spoke out against the World Surf League’s new rules relating to the participation of biological male athletes in female competition.

"It wild that this is even a conversation right? It’s now happening in surfing!" Hamilton wrote.

Former football running back Reggie Bush wrote, "Exactly!!!"

American UFC fighter Michelle Waterson-Gomez wrote,  "Wiley talking that talk. The streets needed you to do your own thing so we can get that unfiltered realness."
