Transgendered Woman Files Suit Againt LPGA…

lana lawless 4x3 370x278 LPGA Hit With Lawsuit By.....A former male SWAT team member who is now a transgendered woman is suing the Ladies Professional Golf Association in a bid to join the women’s golf tour. 

Lana Lawless claims that her civil rights have been violated by the LPGA. 

The LPGA rules state that no one can play on the tour unless she was born female and the organization has rejected Lawless’ applications to enter qualifying events. 

Lawless is legally female, after undergoing a sex-change operation. 

Lawless is also suing the Long Drive Association, which holds driving distance competitions.  She claims the LDA changed its rules to prevent her from entering future events after she won it in 2008.
