The Only Records the Transgender UPenn Swimmer Is Breaking

The University of Pennsylvania has a star athlete that is breaking records left and right as one of the fastest swimmers ever in the women’s categories.

Going by Lia Thomas, the swimmer can’t seem to do anything but outswim the competition in women’s categories be it past or present swimmers according to the New York Post:

Lia Thomas blew away her competition Friday night in the 500-yard freestyle preliminaries and finals at the Zippy Invitational at the University of Akron, according to results posted by the school.

In the finals, Thomas notched a winning time of 4:34.06 — good enough for a new Ivy League record.

The swimmer continued smashing records on Saturday with a nearly 7-second victory in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 1:41.93 — representing the fastest finish in the country, the school said.

Over the weekend, Thomas also set a new program, meet and pool record in the 1650-yard freestyle. She finished that race in 15:59.71 — more than 38 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher, teammate Anna Kalandadze.

If it seems too good to be true, it’s because it usually is. Thomas is transgendered and is actually a man swimming against women. The wins aren’t because of skill alone, it’s because his body is more muscular, his lungs filled with more air, and his limbs are a lot longer.

The NCAA attempted to make excuses for this woke record-breaking performance out of Thomas by stating that he had been treated with testosterone suppression for a year, but this ultimately means nothing. Thomas had spent the vast majority of his life with testosterone coursing through his body giving him a very manly body structure that is still very apparent today.

It’s a sad state of affairs for the other women who trained and worked hard enough to make it to these competitions only to get smoked by a competitor with a natural physical advantage. What’s worse, they all have to applaud and congratulate him under threat that not doing so would result in ostracization at the very least, complete and total cancelation at the worst.

The bottom line is that Thomas cheated. The NCAA can pretend its woke rules and views on transgenderism made it okay, but it changes nothing about the reality of the situation. Thomas is a man who competed against women and won easily thanks to his physical advantage. End of story.

With that in mind, these records that Thomas allegedly broke weren’t broken at all. Unless any of the women did better than the current records, then these records still stand.

The only records that Thomas broke were how fast a transgendered individual (male to female) managed to time in these competitions. I have little doubt that blocking testosterone makes a man weaker, so he can keep the “transgender” asterisk next to his name, but even then, if we’re being very real, like every transgender person he’s not even actually transgender.

He’s still a man. In terms of human biology, there is no way to transform from male to female or female to male. He just took some hormone blockers that changed a few things about his physiology as much as science would allow. Effectively, the guy tried to swim really fast while making himself weaker chemically.

But the bottom line is that Thomas is a cheater, and at no point should this ever count as a “record-breaking” performance. It’s not at all fair to women, and the idea that a man should be able to compete in women’s sports because he labeled himself as a woman is Monty Python levels of lunacy.
