The San Francisco State University president has now weighed in on the Riley Gaines situation that occurred at the school, and once again, it wasn’t a message in favor of the NCAA champion swimmer.

Gaines claimed she was «verbally and physically assaulted» by pro-transgender protesters following a speech she gave on campus on behalf of Save Women’s Sports.

She applauded an email sent to the student body by the university’s vice president of student affairs and enrollment management, Jamillah Moore, who called the protest «peaceful.»

Now, SFSU President Lynn Mahoney said in her article that the event was «deeply traumatic» for the trans community.

«Last Thursday, Turning Point USA hosted an event on campus that advocated for the exclusion of trans people and athletics. The event was deeply traumatic for many in our trans and LGBTQ+ communities, and the speaker’s message outraged many members. from the SF State community, Mahoney wrote in a letter to the campus community, by KRON4.

«As we have seen here and at many universities, it is difficult and painful to balance these commitments to inclusion and social justice,» Mahoney added. «To our trans community, please know how welcome you are. We will make this time an opportunity to listen and learn about how we can best support you.»

Mahoney also called the incident an unfortunate «disruption» that «delayed the speaker’s departure» when Gaines said she was assaulted.

Karina Zamora, president of the university’s Student Associates chapter, addressed Gaines’ speech, opposing «hateful rhetoric and promotion of violence put forth by the TPUSA and Riley Gaines, as well as confrontational behavior at the behest of the Campus Administration.

«As the president of Associated Students and on behalf of the organization, I call on President Lynn Mahoney and her administration to take responsibility and host a community forum to hear how damaging these tactics have been to our student body.»

Zamora also said that there was «violence propagated by Riley Gaines», to which Gaines took offense.

«All for sharing my lived experience of competing against a man and why it’s detrimental to not have sex protected sports… At least we can agree that SFSU needs to be held accountable,» Gaines wrote on Twitter.

Gaines was barricaded in a room for hours before city police arrived to escort her off campus. Gaines said she would have embraced the protest if it had been peaceful, but she went beyond that point.

“I was grateful to see a diverse crowd in the room during my speech, which I expressed several times,” Gaines added. «We had a great dialogue and we listened to each other. But that ambush was the complete opposite of peaceful.»
