“That conversation was so scary and so frightening that we were afraid to even speak amongst ourselves. And at that point, you couldn’t really raise any concerns because you didn’t know who you could trust.”
Paula Scanlon, a former swimmer at UPenn with transgender athlete Lia Thomas, unloaded on Fox News regarding the school silencing the team and Karine Jean-Pierre thinking it’s dangerous to have concerns about women’s safety with biological men on a women’s sports team.
UPenn told the swimmers not to talk to the media after Thomas shot up in the headlines for breaking all these swimming records and winning all the races. They also told them they could attend counseling if they didn’t like Thomas on the team, but the swimmer wasn’t going anywhere:
“That conversation was so scary and so frightening that we were afraid to even speak amongst ourselves. And at that point, you couldn’t really raise any concerns because you didn’t know who you could trust,” she said.
“No one wants the win to feel tainted, especially since there is controversy about whether in the future this could be overridden or overruled. How will that change our team’s records, our team scores? So obviously no one really wanted that. I think obviously nobody’s in sports to win unfairly.”
Last week, EWTN correspondent Owen Jensen asked KJP what the president would say if asked about parents’ concerns about biological men competing against their daughters.
Simple question, except it made KJP lose her mind because it “is a dangerous thing to say” a stronger biological male could hurt a female. To KJP, it’s irresponsible that Jenkins even asked the question. I mean, how could anyone even think a female would be unsafe competing against a male:
“That is dangerous, that is a dangerous thing to say,” she continued. “That essentially transgender kids we’re talking about are dangerous. And so that’s something that I have to call out. That is irresponsible. I had just laid out how complicated this issue is. I had just laid out why it’s complicated, and so anything that you have any additional questions, I refer you to the Department of Education. I’m gonna move on.”

Except, you know, a biological male on a female volleyball team hurt a female opponent. Yes, he harmed a female opponent in a non-contact sport. Payton McNabb suffered a concussion and neck injury when the make “spiked the ball and hit her in the space.”
Scanlon backed up McNabb this morning:
“I think what’s dangerous is having biological men in women’s spaces,” Scanlan said on “America’s Newsroom” Monday. “Even if it’s a small number like [Jean-Pierre]’s trying to suggest, it doesn’t make it any less dangerous for women.”
Scanlan clarified that she did not compete directly against or alongside Thomas, as the two swam in different events. But Scanlan said she felt the need to speak out after seeing how young female athletes were being impacted.
Scanlan said McNabb has not pursued athletics in college following her injury, which Scanlan described as “disheartening.”
“Seeing all those young girls that could be affected that way… we can’t let that happen,” she said.
"I don't want anyone else to have to ever go through what I went through."
