Lia Thomas, a transgender swimmer, has not stopped attracting attention since she entered the women's category. Thomas dominates the women’s category, and many feel it’s not fair despite all the conditions she’s met.
The parents of the swimmers are especially angry “My daughter swam against Lia at Yale this year and it was just a miserable experience all around,” one mother said to The Post. “We are literally bending over for male privilege.
It’s humiliating”. “She still believed she could still beat Lia. Then competition came and Lia turned her whole speed on. Lia’s tall but it’s not only height. Look at the length of her arms. They are almost a foot longer than the girls”.
Martina Navratilova believes that Thomas has a genetic advantage that cannot be prevented “Imagine being a biological female going up against Lia,” Martina Navratilova told The Post. “A top woman swimmer has to literally be unbelievable to beat an average male swimmer who identifies as female.
The hormone suppression therapy doesn’t mitigate the advantage they have over biological women”. However, Caitlyn Jenner surprised most with her attitude “I’ve said from the beginning, biological boys should not be playing in women’s sports,” Jenner said.
“We need to protect women’s sports”. “[Lia Thomas] is also not good for women’s sports. It’s unfortunate that this is happening. I don’t know why she’s doing it. She knows when she’s swimming she’s beating the competition by two laps."
"She was born as a biological boy. She was raised as a biological boy. Her cardiovascular system is bigger. Her respiratory system is bigger.
Republicans on Lia Thomas
Republicans do not support the decision that Thomas can compete within the women's category.
They are hoping for change, although there is little chance that it will happen. Tail. Vicky Hartzler, Missouri Republican said: “Emma Weyant worked her whole life to compete in the NCAA women’s swimming championships — only to be beaten by a biological male,”- she said.
“This is a travesty for women’s sports and sets a horrific precedent for our future generations of female athletes”. “Emma’s victory was unfortunately overshadowed by a biological male who took home first place due to an arbitrary, anti-science definition of gender pushed by the radical Left,” said Rep.
Jeff Duncan, South Carolina Republican. “To deny Emma’s win is to ignore the fact that women have two X chromosomes and certain biological distinctions that disqualify biological males like Lia (William) Thomas from being a contender in a women’s swim meet”.
