Olympic gold medalist and California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner, who is transgender, said over the weekend it would not be “fair” to allow biological males to compete on female sports teams.

“This is a question of fairness,” the athlete turned reality TV star told TMZ when asked about state legislatures passing bills to block biological males who identify as female from competing in girls’ sports. “That’s why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school.”

Jenner went on to say it “just isn’t fair,” adding, “We have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.” When the outlet asked the Olympian if such an opinion is “delegitimizing” to a person’s gender identity, Jenner said, “Have a good day.”

“I didn’t expect to get asked this on my Saturday morning coffee run, but I’m clear about where I stand,” Jenner tweeted after the encounter. “It’s an issue of fairness and we need to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”

Jenner’s comments to TMZ didn’t sit well with several on the left.

There were also some who came to Jenner’s defense.

Jenner’s comments came just days after it was announced Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) will face a recall election thanks to the 1.6 million petitioners who triggered the measure.

Jenner — a Republican — is one of the candidates running to unseat Newsom.

Asked if he thinks Jenner has a chance, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) told late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel that “anyone has a chance because I think that the people are dissatisfied with what’s going on here in California.”
