Former Utah Jazz, Oklahoma City Thunder or New York Knicks player Enes Freedom (formerly Enes Kanter) criticized the inclusion of transgender people in women's sports competitions.

"Men don't belong in women's spaces. Restrooms - Locker Rooms or Sports," the basketball player wrote on his Twitter account. "Since I'm blackballed from the NBA should I put on a wig, identify as a woman and start dominating the WNBA?" he added sarcastically.

It was then that he criticized the absence of feminists. "Is that when the outrage will begin? Is that fair to all the women who spent their whole life chasing their goals? Where are all the Women's Rights Activists and Feminists?" he concluded in his tweet.

He is not the first athlete to take a stand against the inclusion of transsexuals in women's sports. Tennis player Martina Navratilova and swimmer Riley Gaines also spoke out.
