NFL star Brett Favre is coming out swinging against the transgender craze gripping society.

“To think that a young man who identifies as a girl, I don’t understand it—just hear me out—can go into a girl’s bathroom and use the restroom with girls, and for us to think that’s OK, I think is wrong,” he recently said.

The Hall-of-Famer made the comments during an appearance on Jason Whitlock’s “Fearless” podcast.

“I’m sorry,” Favre continued. “I just think some things we’re allowing in this country are beyond belief. … Some of the thoughts and beliefs we’re seeing are crazy.”

The former Green Bay Packers quarterback then turned to one of the culture’s most hotly contested issues: whether males who identify as transgender females should be allowed to compete on women’s sports teams.

Most, he argued, oppose males competing against females, but noted they are fearful of speaking out.

“I think maybe vast majority [of athletes] are afraid of what it’ll do to their career,” Favre told Whitlock, who asked why other celebrity athletes aren’t raising their voices on the issue. “And it’s not affecting them directly—not yet, at least.”

“Who knows where this country’s going?” he added. “It may affect them somewhere down the road. Is it too late? I don’t know. It’s scary.”
