It looks as though transgender swimmer Lia Thomas will head into forced retirement after the International Olympic Committee issued a devastating blow and banned the athlete for life.
“We’re not willing to have what happened in the NCAA competitions happen in our pools,” said Committee Chairman Joe Barron, “We’re not bound by American woke activism.”
Thomas went immediately to Vanity Fair to do an interview, claiming that the system is rigged. “They said I can try out as a man,” said the swimmer, “but I wouldn’t qualify.”
Barron said that Thomas is correct. The lifetime ban is for Lia Thomas the transgender woman, who would be welcome to attempt to qualify as a biological male. “It’s up to the individual to work their hardest.”
The ruling comes during a time when transgender athletes have begun overtaking women’s sports. There’s this one very famous case, but if you look into it, there are like…five more. That’s five transgender athletes who are taking the hopes and dreams of millions of American school girls. Somehow.
Some claim it’s just political theater, and that without Thomas, whose physique is less than feminine, nobody would notice transgender athletes.
But Dylan Mulvaney, and Bud Light Nike. Also, Ford, Hershey’s Kitchenaid, and pride trans bad. God Bless America.
