The Apprentice star expressed her “relief” despite backlash faced by the international federation, which has been accused of “transphobia”.Karren claimed she agreed with “lots of women” who were “confused” about the situation, which affects athletes including Lia Thomas, whose 500-yard freestyle victory in Atlanta was highly controversial.She said: “I’m sure I am not the only person out there who is relieved the swimming body FINA has banned transgender swimmers such as Lia Thomas, from competing in elite women’s races.”Karren added: “Before anyone reaches for their phone to troll me, I think I share the view of lots of women who are also not transphobic, but who are confused about where they should stand on this issue.”Writing in a column for The Sun, Karren went on to stress that she was not being “transphobic” and that accusing her of being so “is no more than bullying.”She penned: “It is so blatantly unfair that anyone who has gone through male puberty should compete on the same platform as someone born biologically female.“To point that out is not being transphobic, and to suggest otherwise is no more than bullying.
