“They haven’t asked our girls how they feel about any of this”
This is exactly what the left is counting on. Fear. Fear of being labeled a bigot or a transphobe, even though parents disagree with what is happening.

Ivy League parents fearful to speak out publicly as Lia Thomas dominates their daughters
Lia Thomas, the transgender University of Pennsylvania swimmer who has smashed college women’s records since early December, was the high-point scorer and the only swimmer to win three individual events at the Ivy League Swimming and Diving Championship last weekend.
Suzy Weiss, writing for Bari Weiss’s “Common Sense” Substack newsletter, reported suppressed ambivalence from the sidelines.
Thomas is “a totem in the culture wars,” Weiss wrote, embodying abstract and divisive debates about the meaning of male and female. Parents who wish to support minority rights — or simply align with the progressive elite — reached the limits of their liberalism as Thomas dominated their Ivy League daughters.
These parents helped get their children into the most competitive colleges in the world.
“They have opinions about everything,” Weiss wrote. “They will explain how there’s a $400 swimsuit that you can only wear once, but that might be worth it for the tenth of a second.”
“But as history unfolds in front of their noses,” Weiss stated, “they refuse to comment.”
One anonymous Penn dad at the competition addressed the issue directly: “No amount of hormone suppression will ever roll back the advantages Lia possesses because of male puberty.”
He and his wife said their daughters have received “veiled threats” from the university to discourage them from speaking out.
Says another Penn mother, “They haven’t asked our girls how they feel about any of this.”
