Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Outrage in Australia as Rip Curl dumped Bethany Hamilton to choose transgender, Sasha Lowerson, to advert swimsuit while surfing the ocean in new promo ad.

Another supporter of Ms Lowerson said: 'She's a talented surfer and made it to where she is on her specific journey. Why don't you ask her questions about who she is and her life story before you cast her off and get pissy?'

In a previous interview with Daily Mail Australia, Ms Lowerson revealed she had been hesitant to compete as a trans surfer due to 'fears of rejection and even the threat of violence'.

Silverman hit the headlines when she lost a skateboarding contest to a transgender woman. She argued that allowing transgender women to compete against biological females in sports is unfair due to potential physical advantages. Silverman’s stance has been met with both support and opposition, with some people applauding her for standing up for women’s rights and others criticizing her for being transphobic.
