New Rules Could See Transgender Swimmer Lia Thomas Stripped Of Titles

A former teammate of transgender swimmer Lia Thomas has said that the biological male should be stripped of his medals, after the International Swimming Federation (FINA) has imposed strict new laws on transgender athletes.

The new rules will not completely disallow transgender athletes, but they must have “transitioned” before the age of 12, around the time of puberty, before they can compete in female swim teams.

This means that Lia Thomas no longer qualifies to compete against biological females.

The former teammate, who wanted to remain anonymous for fear of backlash from LGBT militants said, “I’m very hopeful about it,”

“I am incredibly happy that Lia Thomas will never be an Olympic gold medalist. I think that’s great. But this doesn’t actually fix the NCAA [National Collegiate Athletic Association].”

Thomas competed on the University of Pennsylvania’s men’s swimming team until 2019, until he realized he was not able to compete against his own sex and suddenly “came out” as transgender. Thomas had already gone through puberty long before he decided to switch genders and compete against women – beginning to take female hormones to become his “true self.”

Thomas made headlines when he came a close first in the NCAA Division I national championship in the women’s 500-yard freestyle event. Outrage ensued.

The anonymous teammate also said she “would love” to see Thomas stripped of his titles but doubts that the NCAA will ever do anything about it, adding that Thomas would likely be “grandfathered in” and called this “ridiculous.”

University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, who tied with Thomas for fifth place in the 200-yard freestyle final at the same NCAA championship, was bumped down so Thomas could be awarded fifth place and she received sixth.

“I believe Lia is not the fastest female in the 500-yard freestyle, therefore I don’t think she should be awarded as a female national champion,” Gaines is quoted as saying.

Gaines added that the NCAA “needs to take accountability” and follow FINA’s new guidelines, which restricts men’s access to female sports teams, which she says would be “a bold first step on behalf of fairness in women’s sports.”

“FINA prioritized competitive fairness which is more than any other large governing body has done thus far,” Gaines went on to state. “The only downfall is now that there is a set age to be transgender and allowed to compete as a female, will children be more swayed into transitioning without fully understanding what they’re doing and committing to?”

The former anonymous teammate added that she has concerns about the NCAA adopting FINA’s rules, which could encourage young boys to transition earlier in life – this has been a point of contention for a lot of people concerned about the well-being of vulnerable children.

“Socially, I don’t agree with that,” she said. “I think really, scientifically, this policy makes a lot of sense, and I’m also really happy that it’s also going to be put into place in water polo. Water polo is a very aggressive sport. People get their suits pulled down. They get clawed. I definitely don’t want to see biological men on women’s water polo teams.”

There is also the issue of privacy for female competitors who must share showers and locker rooms with biological men.

  1. He should never have been allowed to compete against women, nor be considered a woman. He was born a male and should always be considered a male.

    1. Let transgender stArt there own compition and not attract women sports who worked so hard to get where they got . Men should compete against men and women against women and the other things against themselves Fuck world order wokeness.

  2. Ask yourself one question why are women not transitioning to men and racing against men you have your answer women should be racing against women now should be racing against males or competing against and if a transgender Community wants to involve themselves in that type of field and let them create their own field they created this

    1. Now, this thing can go back to swimming with men and find that she is a pretty bad swimmer. Ha, ha, ha!!! What a frigging loser!

    2. Exactly – have mens divisions – women’s divisions – kids divisions and Tranny divisions. We all know why this won’t happen though. THey cannot compete against men – so they “target” women. If they had their own division they would not draw the crowds and advertising dollars. PLus they would have to go through the processof creating “their division”. Much easier, faster and cheaper to steal someone else’s. As is so foten said – These people want US to accept them for who they are – when THEY can’t.

  3. I, keep asking the Question, YA’LL SEEN ENOUGH YET? THE WHOLE GLOBAL CABAL, demoncRATs and RINOS, ALL SATAN’S DEMON SPAWN MINIONS DESERVE DIRT NAPS. YA’LL KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE, GIT R DUN! NCSWIC, WWG1WGA, P.A.N.I.C. LET’S GO BRANDON, FJB AND ALL SATAN’S DEMON SPAWN MINIONS. I’m not a BOT. I’m a American Veteran, Trucker and GreatGrandpa. President Trump’s still my President! Yahweh save our poor souls, Amen.

  4. It’s a miscarriage of justice to allow a biological male to compete against females in the first place. And they share the same locker rooms with the females and the majority of the females are against it.

  5. No one wants men in women’s sports, locker rooms or bath rooms. Where are the real feminists supporting women? Where is the celebration of the differences between us? No amount of hormone injections, make up and clothes and bodily mutilations will turn one gender into another. Outward appearance is a deception and not reality. You can put tea into a cup or a glass but its still tea. No man has ever given birth and doesn’t have a womb and there is no surgery you can have to give you one.

  6. Well, he SHOULD be having to compete against men, HE IS ONE! When he figured out he couldn’t beat the guys, he pulled off the biggest farce of the sports world today! He should be stripped of his titles since he got them by cheating the girls. He says he still dates women, still has all his male “ attributes” in place. So he is a faker, a liar, an advantage taker and a looser.

    1. Well put Char
      My sentiments EXACTLY…… if you want to compete with the ladies, be a lady
      If there’s a penis in a women’s (can I still say that?!) swimsuit, you’re not a female

      Strip this BOY of his titles FFS!!!

  7. What’s sad is that these are headlines in today’s so-called news it’s not news to me it’s not an issue it’s your problem not mine it’s not a political issue trying to economic issue on a religious issue it’s your fucking problem only
