Doctors Confirm Trans Swimmer Lia Thomas Has Unfair Advantage

"Warming Up" by Daniel Orth

After significant debate over the fairness of trans athletes competing in sports categories opposite to the gender they were assigned at birth, doctors finally confirmed what everyone with a little reason was thinking.

Namely, doctors at Mayo Clinic stated physiology and biology supersede any social aspects there are to the sport.

They assured testosterone is the driving force in the wide performance gap between male and female athletes.

Testosterone makes all the difference

Even though Lia Thomas, the professional swimmer whose inclusion in the female category sparked debate, was taking testosterone suppressants at the time, the athlete still had an unfair advantage over the biological females they were competing against.

Dr. Ross Tucker, a sports physiologist, touched on the topic, claiming Thomas to be the definitive evidence that no amount of testosterone reduction can remove a man’s advantage over females in sports.

These comments confirmed the concerns of Lia’s competitors’ families.

They were appalled with the transitioning male’s surge through the nation’s ranks, a feat that Thomas couldn’t have accomplished as a male athlete.

In fact, Thomas’ own teammates at Princeton fought hard to have him excluded from the category, but their cries fell on deaf ears.

This was mainly due to the anonymous nature of their complaints, as they did not wish to stir the hornet’s nest known as the LGBT community.

Tennis legend against trans women in women’s sports

Lia hasn’t spoken up on the issue much, only recently giving a short interview for Sports Illustrated.

He claimed to be a woman just like the rest of them and said he’s always identified as a swimmer, demanding he keeps the right to compete.

This stance divided the world of sport, with some claiming Lia should be allowed to compete in the category he identifies with.

Meanwhile, actual athletes like tennis legend Martina Navratilova are against it, claiming it to be unfair to Lia’s biologically female competitors.

In fact, one of Lia’s teammates was shunned from a social eating club at Princeton University for her “transphobic” stance, almost as if she wasn’t defending the honor of all biological women in the sport.

Navratilova added she was fine with playing against taller and stronger women in tennis during her time.

She explained regardless of whether she won or lost, she felt it to have been a fair match, whereas she would’ve been livid had she lost to a man identifying as a woman.

Being inclusive is all the rage lately, but we must protect women’s sports from these usurpers.

We must do this even at the cost of giving them their own category. Here, both trans men and trans women can compete against one another, without any significant advantages or disadvantages on either side.
