Women’s swimming is under attack.
It’s no secret that biological men who swim in women’s competitions have a significant physical advantage. Lia Thomas, for example, is often placed near or on top of women’s events after a failed run as an athlete.
The NCAA forced biologists to accept that they would face nearly insurmountable odds of placating transgender athletes like Thomas.
This competitive advantage is ignored or excused by transgender activists because it is critical for athletes to be able to compete within their gender identity.
Except when they don’t feel like it.
Riley Gaines, her highly-acclaimed college swimmer, recently joined forces with Tommy Lahren to discuss her stance on these issues.
She spoke forcefully about how promoting Thomas and Penn’s ridiculous nomination for “Woman of the Year” destroyed any interest she had in being awarded the award:
Gaines also mentioned that other than Leah Thomas, other transgender athletes compete in women’s events.
Iszac Henig is a swimmer for the Yale women’s team who was born female and is now known as a male. Hennig was best known for his victory over Thomas in the 100m freestyle earlier this year, leading to allegations of collusion by a UPenn swimmer, with Thomas swimming more than 3 seconds slower than in previous races of this length.
So when a female swimmer wants to compete against women, the NCAA, event organizers, and college administrators encourage and promote compliance with that individual’s gender identity. But from a female to a male swimmer also They compete against women, despite their current gender identity.
And Henning is here to remind you that he actually thinks of himself as a man:
“I want to repeat that I am just a guy. I am just a guy who can play his sport at a really great level. I am just here to go fast and have a good time.”
These absurd double standards for jeans have shown that women’s sport is now a farce; Open to anyone who decides to be allowed to compete in this category:
“It proves to me that the women’s class is a class that everyone is interested in, and it’s in complete danger here,” Riley said. “But like I said, not a lot of the swimmers were talking to Thomas other than Isaac. I think people were very sensitive. They didn’t know what to do and how to deal with it. The locker room situation was absolutely ridiculous. It was uncomfortable. Interact, I would say, with a lot of people at Thomas.”
While Iszac Henig technically didn’t take testosterone, which would have inhibited competition in women’s events, it’s ridiculous for someone to describe themselves as “just a guy” or “just a guy” competing against females.
If you really know as a man, how can you mentally accept staying in women’s sports?
Well, as Gaines sees it, it’s because Henig won’t even have a chance of making it to the NCAA competitions when he’s constantly racing against biological males.
She also noted that this story was basically ignored by the media and other participants did not complain that Issaac is biologically female:
This is something the media hasn’t fully covered. “We had another transgender swimmer,” Gaines said. “Like I said, from female to male he went by Isaac. He/she, in fact swam completely topless, which is very intense, and the whole situation was uncomfortable. But there weren’t too many complaints because technically Isaac was competing. With the sex assigned to childbirth, and the sex assigned to childbirth.”
This whole incident highlights the absurdity of transgender activism in the field. Basically, in their opinion, athletes Should They are allowed to race against any gender they identify with, regardless of biological advantages.
Denying them access to the new gender sport will lead to accusations of transphobia and incitement to violence.
But when they change their gender identity while still wishing to remain in the same biological category, that must also be allowed. Gender only matters when they want it to matter, and biology, of course, never matters.
Ideological consistency is the curse of ideological awakening, which is to put female athletes in a markedly uncomfortable and unfair situation. After years of claiming to care about “women’s rights”, it is astonishing to see how quickly these rights can be disposed of in service of a new agenda.
