San Jose State women’s volleyball has a male player: report

‘Blaire’ Fleming is not a female, but reportedly man named Brayden

A San Jose State University women’s volleyball player is actually a man, according to reporting.

Reduxx reported that “Blaire” Fleming is actually a man named Brayden who identifies as a female.

The outlet spoke to a parent of another collegiate volleyball player.

The mother told Reduxx:

He jumped higher and hit harder than any woman on the court. There was no other female athlete on the court that day that could compare with Blaire’s athleticism. He also had very narrow hips. I took notice of how he was dressed with a longer shirt in the front as well.

Fleming’s advantage as a male also led to injuries, with the anonymous mother’s daughter experiencing “far more physical injuries and strains than she ever had before in her volleyball career.”

She “was constantly icing and rubbing her arms after blocking shots from Fleming.”

Reduxx reported that Fleming’s grandmother refers to earlier photos of him on Facebook as “grandson.”

The news outlet suggested Fleming came to San Jose State from Coastal Carolina University due to a law that would have barred him from playing on the women’s team.

“Prior to transferring to San Jose, Fleming was participating in women’s volleyball in South Carolina for Coastal Carolina University,” Reduxx reported. “He appears to have fled to California just before the Save Women’s Sports Bill became law in the state, which would have prohibited him from continuing to play on female teams.”

The Independent Council on Women’s Sports criticized the university.

“The NCAA is defrauding female athletes by withholding information about a teammate or opponent’s true sex,” Marshi Smith told Reduxx.

“Women are not given the chance to decide whether they want to face heightened safety risks on the court or share women’s locker rooms with men,” Smith said. “The NCAA’s reward system encourages deceit, leading to financial and academic advantages for males at the expense of girls and young women in sports. This harmful practice must be stopped immediately.”

Women’s sports activist Riley Gaines criticized SJSU on X.

“A male (even an overly feminine one) is not and never will be a woman.”
