Male Swimmer Lia Thomas Wins NCAA 500-Yard Freestyle Women’s Swimming Meet

Critics are sounding off on the participation of trans female athletes in girls sports following University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas’ win in the 500-yard freestyle at the NCAA Championships on Thursday. Thomas, who previously swam for the men’s team before transitioning to female in 2019 and sparking a national debate, finished the race with a time of 4:33.24, more than a full second ahead of second place finisher Emma Weyant.Those critical of Thomas’ participation took to Twitter following the swimmer’s controversial win, with some arguing it set a bad precedent that would ensure the “murder of women’s sports”, and others congratulating Weyant, arguing she was the real winner.

Imagine being a young girl working hard all your life and practicing to become a professional athlete, losing an important NCAA race to an embarrassment of a man who decided 3 years ago that he wants to be referred to as a woman, so thus he was allowed to compete against you despite the obvious biological disadvantages. This is pure evil.
