EXCLUSIVE: Trans-Identified Male Seen Injuring Female Player During Women’s League Game

Reduxx has learned that a male who identifies as transgender reportedly injured a female player while participating in a women’s league in New South Wales, Australia.

The incident took place on May 21 during a game between the Inter Lions and the St. George football clubs at the Majors Bay Reserve. Reduxx was provided footage of the match, showing the transgender player launch his smaller female opponent towards a metal fence using an aggressive tackle as the two chased down the ball.

The female player is seen laying on her side, unmoving, as the transgender player casually walks away.

Reduxx can confirm that the transgender player involved in the incident is Riley Dennis, a trans activist and former YouTube personality who had previously been alleged to have injured female players at a match in March.

Speaking to a source close to the matter, Reduxx was told that the female St. George player was provided treatment from the club’s physiotherapist during the game’s half-time break, hoping to be able to return to the field. But, during the second half of the game, the woman was only able to play for “approximately 8 minutes” before she succumbed to the injuries she sustained and had to be replaced.

“The St. George player was unable to train until later in the week and when she did, it was only very lightly,” the source, whose name is being withheld for privacy, explained.

“Footage [of the tackle] has been viewed by a number of people, including a senior referee, and all are in agreement that the challenge was unnecessary. But the referee in this particular game saw no issue. Best let the footage decide that,” the source said.

This is not the first time Dennis is alleged to have injured female players while playing on a women’s team.

Dennis was first subject to public scrutiny after Reduxx revealed that thousands of complaints were submitted to Football New South Wales regarding his participation in the women’s league. The complaints were first reported by the Daily Mail Australia, but the outlet had declined to identify him directly, instead using censored photos and leaving him anonymous.

Football NSW similarly scrubbed Dennis from their website, replacing his name with “Inter Player” on their roster due to the backlash they had received, but screenshots from the past iterations of the site exist, showing where Dennis was clearly anonymized.

Reduxx was able to use the censored photos from the Daily Mail article to confirm that Dennis had been the player being referred to in the allegations.

Weeks later, Reduxx received notice from the eSafety Commissioner of Australia that the article identifying Dennis had been deemed “offensive” and had violated an unknown Australian law.

The article was subsequently censored on Twitter, with the link withheld to users in Australia.

In the notice from the eSafety Commissioner received by Reduxx on April 28, the Commissioner denied that Dennis had injured any female players, and insisted the allegations lodged against him were “false.” The Commissioner did not specify why or how the investigation into the matter was conducted by their office, which is intended explicitly to deal with “cyber abuse.”

But Reduxx was not the only target in what ended up being a censorship rampage conducted by the Australian Government on behalf of Dennis.

Kirralie Smith, a women’s safeguarding advocate, was visited by New South Wales Police on March 30 after speaking to media about Dennis. Smith, a spokeswoman with an organization established to combat gender ideology, has been a vocal critic of gender self-identification in sports, and headed the complaint campaign to Football New South Wales which named Dennis as a risk to female players.

Smith was handed an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) by police, requiring that she does not discuss or approach Dennis – despite the fact that Smith lives over 200 miles from Dennis. The AVO acts as an interim order that will stand until a court hearing to determine if it is justified and will stand.

Smith had also been censored by the eSafety Commissioner, which had her Facebook account shut down.

The account had been established in 2016 and managed a page used to advocate for the rights of women and girls being harmed by gender identity policies. At the time of its deletion, Smith’s page had over 47,000 followers.

In addition to Reduxx and Smith, Ovarit, a pro-woman Reddit alternative, was also targeted with notices demanding certain posts about Dennis be deleted.

Dennis was a popular trans activist YouTuber who amassed 113,000 subscribers on the platform. He has since stopped creating content but, during the height of his internet career, he received backlash for a controversial video in which he called “genital preferences” transphobic.

The video, titled Your Dating ‘Preferences’ Might Be Discriminatory and released in 2017, prompted outrage from lesbians who felt Dennis was attempting to guilt them into having sexual relationships with males.

In the video, Dennis, who identifies as a “transgender lesbian,” implied that sexual orientation is caused by societal prejudices and that it is discriminatory to exclude members of the opposite sex from your dating preferences if you are homosexual. Dennis deleted the video following widespread criticism.
