“The group, organized by three-time Olympic gold medalist Nancy Hogshead-Makar, sent the letter early Thursday morning asking UPenn and the Ivy League to support us as biological women’ and not engage the NCAA in legal action in an effort to challenge the new protocols,” Swim Swam reported, adding, “Hogshead-Makar says that the swimmers wrote the letter themselves, though both Hogshead-Makar, an organized group of parents, and other athletes, made edits before arriving at the final draft.”
In the letter, the swimmers noted, “Biologically, Lia holds an unfair advantage over competition in the women’s category, as evidenced by her rankings that have bounced from #462 as a male to #1 as a female. If she [Thomas] were to be eligible to compete against us, she could now break Penn, Ivy, and NCAA Women’s Swimming records; feats she could never have done as a male athlete.”
I’m still waiting for a female to join the men’s team.
The other women have to suck it up. They are too lazy and need to train much harder and grow some balls.
You live in your own reality of alternative facts.
"Thomas swam for three years at Penn as a male before transitioning, sat out a year while undergoing testosterone suppression treatment and returned to compete as a woman.
She will also compete in the 200-yard and 100-yard NCAA championships later this week."
Quite ironic. I believe it is you that have been indoctrinated by the mainstream media. Can you explain how your links disprove the fact that a biological male human is competing as a woman. [outsports.com]
@BDair Genitalia is only one component of biology. It's you weirdos obsessed with genitalia who can't comprehend transgenderism.
She has been allowed to compete and is following the rules. Your bigoted opinion is irrelevant.
I'm a bigot because I don't believe a person with testicles should be in an athletic competition with women? Your logic processes are convoluted.
@BDair The decision to allow her to compete was made by those qualified and selected to do so. You aren't among them. Stop try to exclude people on the basis of your own uninformed and irrelevant beliefs. No one cares what you think.
Stay ignorant my friend. [nypost.com]
