Has the National Center for Lesbian Rights Ever Heard of Renee Richards?

The Wall Street Journal weighs in on the Bruce Jenner story, looking at the transition from a sports angle HERE -- but what an idiotic quote from Helen J. Carroll, the sports director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights:
“We’re all waiting for Bruce Jenner to say something. Sports hasn’t come to the forefront of [transgender] issues yet."

Sports is the way the MAJORITY OF PEOPLE IN THE 20TH CENTURY first found out what being trans was about -- in a case that went all the way to the New York Supreme Court, which ruled in 1977 that Renee Richards had the right to compete in the women's draw at the U.S. Open -- and is the MOST HIGH-PROFILE transgender thing to ever happen ... and it was SPORTS-related!

What are you talking about, Helen?

For a time, everything about Renee was headline news -- even when it wasn't about her
