Some Female Swimmers at UPenn Upset About Trans Teammate Unfairly Racking Up Wins

Some Female Swimmers at UPenn Upset About Trans Teammate Unfairly Racking Up Wins

“they do not have the chance to win. I think that it’s really getting to everyone”

We have been following this story. Who can blame female athletes for being upset about this?

FOX News reports:

Second female Penn swimmer steps forward, describes teammates in tears

Even after a Wednesday team meeting where a source says Penn administration “strongly advised” its swimmers to avoid talking to the media about the situation surrounding transgender Penn swimmer Lia Thomas, a second female Penn swimmer has stepped forward to speak out via an exclusive interview with OutKick.

The second female Penn swimmer to speak out, who was granted anonymity due to what is viewed as threats from the university, activists, and the political climate, wants people to know that Penn swimmers are “angry” over the lack of fairness in the sport as Lia Thomas destroys the record books and brings fellow teammates to tears.

The second Penn swimmer to come forward was at the University of Akron Zippy Invitational where she watched Lia Thomas beat fellow teammate Anna Kalandadze by 38 seconds in the 1650 freestyle. OutKick’s source described Penn swimmers on the Akron pool deck as upset and crying, knowing they were going to be demolished by Thomas.

“They feel so discouraged because no matter how much work they put in it, they’re going to lose. Usually, they can get behind the blocks and know they out-trained all their competitors and they’re going to win and give it all they’ve got,” the source said.

“Now they’re having to go behind the blocks knowing no matter what, they do not have the chance to win. I think that it’s really getting to everyone.”

After just five meets and the Akron Invitational, Thomas has not just destroyed opponents. The Penn freestyle records are being rewritten by a swimmer who was second-team All-Ivy league in 2018-19 — as a male.

I was at the local city pool yesterday, and at the locker room door there was a sign stating that I should use the locker room of the gender which I identify. So, if I were to slap on some lipstick and shave my kegs, I guess walking through the ladies dressing room would be fine, right? Simply saying that I identify as female should be enough. It fits, because for decades I have been saying that I was a lesbian trapped in a man’s body, so I do have a history, I mean a herstory, agggh, I can’t keep it straight, err gay, agggggh!

Now, imagine being a January 6 detainee, and feeling precisely the same way about the prosecutors and judges that will decide your fate.

Has the tyranny hit home yet, ladies? How will you be voting now?

    They won’t make the connection.

      If they had any balls, they would quit en masse. Pun intended, with prejudice.

      Then make a more direct one: for decades, women have been using identity politics and Title IX lawsuits to extort money from colleges for sports programs no one cares about. Hundreds, thousands of men have gone without athletic scholarships because universities were forced to redirect those funds to women’s teams that consistently perform below 14-year-old boys and bring in no funding to the university via alumni donations, media exposure, or ticket sales – because no one cares about women’s sports.

      Glass slipper’s on the other foot now, ladies.

They need to walk away..walk away from the team…from the college. I don’t care how much their scholarships are worth. Some things are worth more. Let him be the only one left on the team.

    If I recall correctly, U Penn is the place that gave Let’s Go Brandon a million for a no show job. While in principle you are right, I doubt that swimmers walking away would accomplish anything other than the administration saying that they got rid of the bigots..

      Then they would be admitting they think women are bigots. Real women, I mean.

      Let them go with that.

Elections are coming. Most of the mainstream media will want to either memory-hole this fiasco or soft-pedal it. But it should be fodder for the political advertisements against woke Democrat candidates running in the mid-terms. I would love to hear what Biden and other Democrats have to say about this controversy, other than cowardly evasion or hand-waving deflection.

Not a single mention of it in The DP: https://www.thedp.com/

    I noticed that the women’s basketball team is losing badly. How long before they start scouting boys who can’t quite make the cut for the men’s team – all you have to do is call yourself a girl for the next 4 years and we’ll pay your way through college!
