WOW... UPenn Threatens To Sue If Trans Swimmer Can't...
The NCAA was pressured by the public to protect women's sports and ensure the games are fair to the women since transgender males have started to join. The organization offered a small assurance by changing their pre-game police in order to require the biological males are tested for testosterone prior to competing.
As I said, it was a very small victory for women...
However, the powers that be at the University of Pennsylvania have allegedly talked about suing if their star athlete, Lia Thomas, is prevented from competing if he tests positive for high testosterone levels.
"The University of Pennsylvania is weighing whether to pursue legal action if transgender swimmer Lia Thomas is prohibited from competing in the upcoming NCAA women’s swimming championship, according to a report.
A swimmer on the university’s women’s team told Fox News, “I have a feeling that if USA Swimming changes their rules, they will be filing a lawsuit for Lia to swim, but they wouldn’t do that for us.”
“That’s just really upsetting,” the swimmer told the outlet under the condition of anonymity, adding that she had heard about the potential lawsuit from “some of the administrators.”
Thomas is eligible to compete on the women’s team under current USA Swimming rules that require a year of testosterone suppression. Under new NCAA rules, transgender athletes will be required to document testosterone levels to remain eligible, leaving Thomas’ eligibility for the NCAA women’s championships up in the air.
The NCAA announced earlier this week that it had updated its transgender-participation policy to reflect the practices of the U.S. and International Olympic Committees. Under the new policy, transgender participation in a particular sport will be determined by that sport’s national governing body. If no such governing body exists, participation will be determined by the sport’s international federation rules. In the event that an international federation has no transgender policy, the American branch of a particular sport will follow the IOC policy."
Personally, I think the school jus showed their hand. They don't really care about appearing 'woke' and just want to win. It also makes me wonder if they know something the rest of us don't—Like, if Thomas is even taking hormone treatments.
The male swimmer has broken several records while competing against women. He clearly has a biological edge over the women and has reportedly bragged about how easy the women are to beat. If, in addition to that, he's not taking hormone treatments or stopping treatment ahead of competitions, then the women can't possibly stand a chance against him.
