Emily Bridges Faces Abuse After PM Boris Johnson’s Statement
The English PM Boris Johnson’s remarks have prompted online abuse of Emily Bridges. She says she has received violent threats in recent days.
The PM shared his view in April 2022 that “Biological Males” should not be competing in women’s sports. His opinion had hit the LGBTQ+ community and had put him in a conflict.
Bridges told the ITV News Editor Steve Scott that she suffered physical threats after the comments. She said: “It is very difficult to read everything people are saying about you, and it hurts, it hurts.”
She further said: “It’s really strange to see probably the most famous man in Britain talking about you and having an opinion on something that he doesn’t know anything about. The response after that was as expected, I had threats of physical violence made against me by complete strangers online.”
Bridges had continued to race against man until a few months ago. She underwent hormone therapy and her testosterone levels have fallen. As a result, the cyclist wants to compete in the women’s tournament.
While on hormone therapy she had remained competitive against the male and won a gold and bronze.
In March 2022, renowned cyclists threatened not to compete if Bridges would contest against them. After these, she was not allowed for the National Omnium Championships. Similarly, female contestants had revolted that Bridges will overpower them due to his physical strength.
The real name of Emily Bridges is Zach Bridges. She was born a biological male on the 4th of January, 2001.
As a man, Bridges has won several national and international competitions.
