The “transgender” swimmer “Lia” Thomas is ruining women’s college swimming. This we already know.
The actual female swimmers at University of Pennsylvania have already spoken out, anonymous for their own safety from the leftist mob. Women at other universities who have to compete with this wolf in a sheep’s bathing suit have as well.
Washington Examiner interviewed one woman in particular, who has had a LOT to say about it.
The crux of the swimmers’ complaints is the biological advantage that Lia has over female teammates. The swimmers were promised competition between females, not men who want to be female. Yet, there’s also the matter of an apparently inflated ego.
“She compares herself to Jackie Robinson,” the female swimmer told me. “She said she is like the Jackie Robinson of trans sports.”
That’s from the second part of a two-part interview the Washington Examiner has conducted with this swimmer and teammate of the interloper.
“Lia” isn’t just gripped by delusions of grandeur and possessed of a surpassing ego and ambition (the real reason for switching teams, so to speak, from the men’s swimming), but also a cruel mocker AND rule-breaker, it seems.
She asserted that Thomas evinces a lack of sincerity and empathy toward teammates.
“She laughs about it and mocks the situation,” the female swimmer told me. “Instead of caring or showing that she cares about what she’s doing or what she’s doing to her teammates, she’s not sympathetic or empathetic at all. Lia never addressed our team. She never asked if it was OK. She never asked how we felt. She never tried to explain how she feels. She never has said anything to us as a group. She never addressed anything.”
“All she does is make comments to people like, ‘At least I’m still No. 1 in the country,’ and those kinds of cocky things,” she said. “She doesn’t care how all this is affecting us and how this is affecting our relationship to swimming. She doesn’t care, and it makes it really hard to like her.”
Rubbing it in is part of “Lia’s” routine. Using the advantages being male give to a man, “Lia” dominates the sport and crushes the competition, then brags, struts, and insults in turns.
How unfair is it? Take a look.
But that’s not all. Rule-breaking, too, in order to strut more.
[The female teammate] also described how Thomas failed to follow rules the school implemented specifically for her during a recent training trip in Florida.
“On our last training trip, we were told not to wear Penn gear on our trip to Florida, on the off chance that we would get harassed or anything,” she said. “So, everyone went out of their way — now, about 75% of our athletic wardrobe is Penn — we went out of our way to not pack any Penn stuff. Except Lia. Every single day at the airport and at the gym, Lia made sure to wear a big Penn shirt with ‘Penn Swim and Dive’ on it. And she was the only one. We weren’t allowed to wear it because of her, and she did it every day.”
“She was doing it just to make a point,” the swimmer said. “We all went out of our way for her.”

This, like other woke initiatives, is part of a larger and very serious crisis in America.
This erasure of women is moving forward wholesale, while the media and liberal blogs work hard to devalue motherhood and devalue human life with rampant abortion. In the end, it is ironic that the humanists – the anti-religious – they are the ones who are the truest enemies of humanity. That progressives are the greatest enemies of human progress, civilization, and achievement.
They are compelled to this destruction of all that is. It’s what the road to Hell is all about.
