‘This Is Some Bullsh*t’: Fans Blast Ivy League, NCAA for Allowing Trans Swimmer to Dominate Female Competition


University of Pennsylvania transgender swimmer Lia Thomas smashed the women’s 500-yard freestyle record at the Ivy League Championships Thursday while cruising to a first-place finish.

As Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston reported via the New York Post, “Thomas, who is a man and competed as a man for nearly three years on the school’s men’s swim team, won the 500-yard race against a field of women with an unheard of time of 4:37.32, the best time ever recorded at Harvard University’s Blodgett Pool.”

Video of the trans swimmer’s domination quickly began making the rounds on the internet.

Lia Thomas is the @IvyLeague champion in the 500 free. Her time of 4:37.32 is a new pool record.

It wasn’t long after that video was posted that Twitter users unleashed a torrent of criticism directed at Thomas, the NCAA, and the Ivy League. Chiefly, people were upset that these organizations allowed a male swimmer to compete against and dominate female competitors while enjoying an obvious physical advantage.

90% of people know it’s bullshit, they’re just afraid to say it.

500 free final @IvyLeague championships: Lia Thomas, formerly of the @PennSwimDive men’s team, won by over 7 seconds. You can hardly see the other women swimming at the far end of the pool by the time the race is over. For the women, “it was a race for second place.”

Lia Thomas is a biological male swimming against biological females. Whether she identifies as a girl is irrelevant to the fact that she was born a male, went through puberty as a male, and swam on the mens team for 3 years. Protect women’s sports.

ESPN weighed in with a startling grasp of the obvious. Though, they stopped short of saying exactly why Thomas enjoyed such a strength advantage over the rest of the field:

.@ESPN: “You can see the …powerful stroke of Lia Thomas where there isn’t a whole lot of movement in her legs. …it’s a much quieter stroke even though it’s more powerful than a lot of these other swimmers right now.” @SaveWomensSport @AbigailShrier @KDansky @coachblade

Congratulations to Catherine Buroker, who might have come second in this race, but as she lost to trans woman Lia Thomas (born a man) Catherine is the real winner here ???‍♀️

UPenn swimmer “Lia” Thomas is just a horrible human being.

He knows he’s destroying the sport for women, but the mentally ill spoiled brat couldn’t care less.

Shame on the @NCAA for destroying the championship and erasing all the hard work real women put in.

The “scrutiny” you’re referring to is noticing that Lia Thomas is not a woman competing in women’s events.

Lia Thomas is cheating.

Genuine question. Because it only takes one Lia Thomas in each event for women’s sports to be meaningless, long-standing records trashed. This is the future, so the LGBT-lobby who have pushed this through need to think of an answer #whatdowesaytothegirls
