Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re talking about women, women’s sports, and the men trying to take it over. Despite the obvious objective differences between men and women, there are still people who think it’s totally okay for them to compete together — as if trans swimmer Lia Thomas isn’t setting records left and right and absolutely wrecking his competition (actual women). Then, we talk to high school track champion Ainsley Erzen about going off to compete in college sports only to find that she will have to compete against men and about her recent op-ed in the Des Moines Register calling for women’s sports to be preserved for women.
