‘At Stake Here Is The Integrity Of Women’s Sports’ Parents Fed Up With 'Woke' Penn State Strike Back
Growing up we didn't consider a person's gender a debatable subject and I could have never imagined I would ever spend so much time talking about it. In high school, I competed against several other girls in both track and volleyball and I don't think any of us ever considered needing to compete against males.
After seeing what's happening to women's sports across the nation, I have to say I am thankful I didge that bullet but I feel for the young female athletes who are trapped in this new 'woke' world. Like many of my teammates, sports opened up scholarship programs for me and it pains me to think that other girls might be passed up on that opportunity it because a gender-confused person might take that away from them.
By now, I am sure you know a little about what's happening at Pennsylvania University with the trans swimmer ( William 'Lia' Thomas) bragging about how easy it is to beat the female athletes. Now, at least 10 families are fighting back in a letter addressed to the NCAA. The letter, which was forwarded to the Ivy League and University of Pennsylvania officials, as The Daily Mail reported:
At stake here is the integrity of women’s sports. The precedent being set – one in which women do not have a protected and equitable space to compete – is a direct threat to female athletes in every sport. What are the boundaries? How is this in line with the NCAA’s commitment to providing a fair environment for student-athletes? …
It is the responsibility of the NCAA to address the matter with an official statement….As the governing body, it is unfair and irresponsible to leave the onus on Lia, Lia’s teammates, Lia’s coaches, UPenn athletics and the Ivy League. And it is unfair and irresponsible to Lia to allow the media to dictate the narrative without the participation of the NCAA.
The mission and priorities of the NCAA are stated below. Please ensure that your actions and decisions are consistent with your mission for ALL Student-Athletes.
One mother told The Daily Mail, “The swimmers have mixed feelings. Many of them want to speak up, but they don’t because they believe they’ll be ostracized. Everybody is scared. Parents are also scared that the kids will be harmed. We are paying $80,000 for this school. Their life will be impacted.”
One of the mothers declared, “I think that transgender people have a right to compete, but they need to have their own league….Being fair to one group of people shouldn’t take rights away from another group, and that’s what’s happening here….The NCAA obviously didn’t think much about the rules they set. It’s not fair to the women on the team and it’s not fair to Lia as well. She went through transition, and I admire her bravery. But the records she sets now are not valued records, female records.”
Another mother counted, “Our swimmers are already impacted by this situation….My daughter is unable to focus. We are trying to give the swimmers a break, with interims now….But I’m a fighter by nature and I feel uncomfortable being silent. If everyone is silent, nothing is going to change. We’re giving the girls time for the midterms. Then we need to speak up as soon as possible.”
Video has surfaced of Thomas winning the 1650 free, showing how lopsided the race was with Thomas, who swam competitively for the men’s team during three seasons before switching to the women’s team, leaving female swimmers looking as if they were not even in the same race.
A father of one of the swimmers told DailyMail that the group is “consulting with people who are very in tune with these issues and plan to issue a statement shortly.”
Just to show you how absurd this is. Here’s the trans swimmer “Lia” Thomas crushing all of the female competitors by 40 seconds. This is what that looks like in real time. A total farce.

While leftists want to blast parents like these for being trans-phobic, they ignore the damage the tans-movement has done to women and, in this case, women's sports.
Thomas was reportedly a mediocre swimmer in the men's league, now dominating the women's league as you can see in the video above. Is this fair? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
