The University of Pennsylvania women’s swimming team faced Harvard at a dual meet on Saturday. Controversial transgender swimmer Lia Thomas continued to dominate, winning two events: the 100-yard and 200-yard freestyle races. Thomas swam the 100-yard free in 50.55 seconds and the 200-yard free in 1:47.08 seconds.
Thomas was born male and is competing among biological females. The swimmer’s place on the women’s team has caused a lot of anger and frustration among the other swimmers. They were promised fair competition among females before accepting admission to the Ivy League school, but that turned out not to be true. After swimming for three years on the men’s team, Thomas’s involvement with the women’s team has left a feeling that the school employed a bait-and-switch tactic on the students.
For years, liberals, Democrats, and leftists have routinely claimed that a patriarchy in the United States exists and makes
women second-class citizens. Female athletes have echoed these claims, bemoaning significant inequalities between men’s and women’s athletics. Consider the numerous reports that highlight disparities between men’s and women’s sports, especially at the collegiate level. Now, with athletes who have the genetics of a man being permitted to take away athletic opportunities from women, females have been relegated to an even lower position.
“Women are now third-class citizens,” the swimmer told me. She also specifically detailed how Thomas’s male genetics provide a distinct advantage. Where William didn’t perform as well at some events in the men’s sport, Thomas has thrived as a woman.
“Lia was not even close to being competitive as a man in the 50 and the 100 (freestyle events),” the anonymous swimmer said. “But just because Lia is biologically a man, [Lia] is just naturally better than many females in the 50 and the 100 or anything that [Lia] wasn’t good at as a man.”
The data seem to support this claim. Continue:
