Riley Gaines offers prize money to female pool player who dropped out rather than compete against man, Babylon Bee's CEO will match the funds
· Feb 29, 2024 ·

I mean this in the most professional way possible:

Riley Gaines is proving she practices what she preaches.

You may remember when last year Gaines offered to start compensating female athletes who opt out of competing against transgender competitors, advocating for fair competition in sports.

Today, she is putting her money where her mouth is.

At the European Pool Championships, a prominent female player, Kim O'Brien, forfeited her spot in the women's final because she would rather drop out than compete against a man in a women's tournament.

Her opponent was supposed to be male player Harriet Haynes.

Gaines wasted no time in stepping up to support O'Brien, declaring her the rightful recipient of the prize money she missed out on by choosing not to engage in the match.

Gaines urged others to follow suit, encouraging a stance against an unfair playing field and calling female athletes to take control of their participation.

Stop playing their game. More of this!!

And we can't forget that our man Seth Dillion offered to match Gaines' contribution and even double it!
