Is James Rodriguez Transgender?
No, James Rodriguez is not a transgender.
The recent rumors about the footballer undergoing scissors to turn into a woman are completely baseless. As, for now, there has been no evidence to support the rumor.
People are actually questioning his retirement from football if he turns into a woman. Twitter going crazy with such memes shows the true face of our society when it comes to the LGBTQIA community.
If ever we needed a reminder why Football v Transphobia is necessary, it's this. Football Twitter is awash with nonsense banter about a ludicrous rumour that James Rodriguez is transitioning. There's no evidence for this of course, someone just presumably made it up on Whatsapp..
