There was no way that the NCAA or the Ivy League were going to upset the LGBT applecart and disqualify so-called transgendered athletes from competing in 2022 postseason women’s swimming championships. League officials approved their eligibility several days ago, and now PennU’s Will “Lia” Thomas, a male, is making an absolute mockery of the Ivy League women’s meet.
Thomas won the 500-yard freestyle race in a record time of 4:37.32. None of the women came close to his time. The New York Post incorrectly reported he had transitioned to female and referred to him as a female.
In the 800-yard freestyle relay Wednesday, Thomas recorded the fastest split time, though Penn did not win the event.
The polarizing Thomas has generated a tremendous amount of opposition to his presence on the Penn women’s team, as he destroys the integrity of women’s swimming.
Earlier this month, 16 of his teammates submitted a letter to the Washington Post arguing he doesn’t belong on their team. He is much taller, stronger and faster than they are, and as women, they simply can’t compete with him.
Thomas is also drawing opposition across the nation.
Rice Swimming coach Seth Huston said in January it’s a “black and white” issue that people who identify as transgender “women” are a threat to actual female athletes.:
The NCAA once again has proven that it is not leading. It is not really even following. The NCAA governance has become a bystander waiting for other organizations to make tough decisions. They hoped NIL (name, image, likeness financial benefits for college athletes) would continue to be suppressed, and now they are scrambling to make it fit their construct. Now they sit on the sidelines with transgender issues.
Thomas underwent the NCAA’s required one year of testosterone suppressant, gaining eligibility to compete in women’s swimming. However, Swimming World Editor-in-Chief John Lohn said in a December 19 op-ed that the NCAA’s one-year suppressant requirement is "not nearly stringent enough to create a level playing field between Thomas and the biological females against whom she is racing."
A 22-year-old senior, Thomas has naturally produced testosterone for nearly 20 years, and that can’t be offset by just a year's worth of suppressants, Lohn said. His hormonal advantages would not be dissimilar to women who take steroids. Thus, it’s no wonder Thomas is soundly defeating overmatched female opponents.
Thomas will again display his substantial male superiority to women in next month’s NCAA national women’s swimming championships. Which is totally bogus and unfair to the women who’ve worked so hard to excel in swimming. The powers that be in NCAA sports are far too afraid to stand up to the LGBT cancel machine to prevent this travesty of justice.
