“(Swimming) is a huge part of my life and who I am. I’ve been a swimmer since I was 5 years old,” Thomas told Penn Today last June.

“Being trans has not affected my ability to do this sport...


This reality illustrates essential issues.

Is life in denial necessary for tranny-ism? The answer, of course, is no...

...but, often, clearly, it helps.

    That ain't right.

    This kind of thing just paints a bigger target on the backs of transwomen.

    She beat the second place finisher by 38 seconds BECAUSE SHE IS ESSENTIALLY A MALE ATHLETE!

    In the article it says that NCAA rules mandate that the athelete is required to take testosterone blockers for at least one year before competing as a woman.
    IMO that's ridiculous. One year of T blockers isn't going to level the playing field, in this case the pool, for cis women. If I were a cis woman athelete who lost to her, I'd sue the NCAA.

    That swimmer and the NCAA are not doing the trans community any favors.

    The manner in which transexuality will be integrated into American culture is still evolving and will be for quite some time.

    In ancient times only men competed in the Olympics

    This is perhaps a reactionary conspiracy trying to bring us back to those times

    I would guess that most people are unaware of that, georges. A more likely reason is that transpeople have become emboldened in recent years after a period in which gay and lesbian people made great strides in acceptance, which IMO is good, but IMO the trans community is overreaching with regards to transwomen athletes.

    I'm glad this is happening because it exposes the absurdity of allowing trans women athletes to compete with cis women athletes.

    Trans women still, minus genitalia if post-op, still have male bodies. They retain a male skeletal and muscle structure, and little muscular strength is lost. The only exception might be a cis male who started taking testosterone blockers before puberty.

    If we're going to start allowing some literally-male bodies to compete in women's sports, it will contradict the entire reason we have separate leagues for most women athletes.
