    Former NCAA champion swimmer Riley Gaines slammed Rep. Glenn Ivey (D-MD) over the weekend for the double standard in criticisms of the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act, a piece of legislation that the Republican-controlled House passed with no support from Democrats.

    The legislation was approved Thursday morning in a 219-203 vote in which all "yes" votes were cast by Republicans and all "no" votes were cast by Democrats, according to Fox News.

    "H.R. 734 does NOT put children first. Sports should be safe, accessible & fair for everyone," Ivey tweeted. "H.R. 734 would mean the forced inspection of student-athletes, which is an egregious violation of a student's personal dignity. This would impact ALL student-athletes across this nation."

    Gaines, a former All-American at the University of Kentucky, has become one of the leading female voices in the battle to protect women's sports from biological males.

    Gaines responded, "Checking birth certificate and/or ensuring everyone has a routine physical before competing = egregious violation of personal dignity."

    "Forcing girls to undress in front of an intact and exposed male = NOT an egregious violation of personal dignity, but rather kind and inclusive," she continued. "This should be bipartisan, yet [no] Democrats in the House voted in favor of HR 734. I'll stand with anyone, regardless of party affiliation, who vows to protect girls and women in sports."

    Gaines was attacked earlier this month by radical transgender activists who swarmed her when she visited San Francisco State University to advocate for the rights of female athletes.

    Gaines, who was deprived of an NCAA award by Lia Thomas, the University of Pennsylvania swimmer who claims to be female and competes against women, was at the school as part of a Turning Point USA event. Video on social media shows Gaines being hustled to safety by police officers as a mob of radical transgender activists follows her, shouting, "Trans rights are human rights!"

    "The prisoners are running the asylum at SFSU," Gaines tweeted. "This is proof that women need sex-protected spaces. Still only further assures me I'm doing something right. When they want you silent, speak louder."

    Gaines had started her speech when protesters burst into the room where she was speaking. As she was being escorted to safety, she was physically assaulted, she said.

    "I'm OK currently, but an hour and a half later, I'm still barricaded in a room with ambushers on the outside yelling and threatening violence," Gaines said. "As police escorted me out of the event space to my current location, I was hit, physically, twice by what I presume was a male individual. This only assures me I'm doing the right thing."

    It was unclear how long Gaines was barricaded in the room, but the event began at 7 p.m. local time, and at midnight, police were still dispersing the protesters.

    Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk blasted the protesters behind the incident.

    "This is unacceptable at an American college campus, even in San Francisco," Kirk tweeted. "Pray for Riley Gaines and for our brave students at SFSU."

    Gaines's agent, Eli Bremer, said Gaines would not back down from the mob.

    "Instead of a thoughtful discussion tonight at SFSU, Riley was violently accosted, shouted at, physically assaulted, and barricaded in a room by protestors. It is stunning that in America in 2023, it is acceptable for biological male students to violently assault a woman for standing up for women's rights," Bremer said in a statement. "This will not stop Riley from boldly educating people of the dangers of biological males in women's sports. She will continue to speak the truth against the radical left that no longer understands the difference between men and women."
