Firing back

Headline news: Lia Thomas does not admit that his competing as a woman in swimming competitions is unfair. No, really?!!

Transgender NCAA swimming champion Lia Thomas is firing back at those claiming her dominance is unfair to biological women … saying trans athletes will not destroy women’s sports.

“Firing back,” eh – that’s tactful. He’s already physically bullying every woman he competes against; he’s not the one who needs to do any “firing back.”

The University of Penn athlete broke her silence on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday … saying she knew she’d face backlash once she started competing against women, but no amount of scrutiny would stop her.

And no amount of women pointing out how unfair it is would stop him. Of course it wouldn’t: he’s an entitled prick.

“I was prepared for that, but I don’t need anyone’s permission to be myself and do the sport that I love,” she said.

Except that it’s not himself. It’s a fiction. Himself is a man, but he’s competing against women, while claiming to be a “trans woman.”

And the boast about not needing anyone’s permission is very rapey, very entitled, very domestic violence-like.

“Transitioning to get an advantage is not something that ever factors into our decisions,” he says. I don’t believe him. “Trans women are not a threat to women’s sport,” he says. Of course they are. Men have physical advantages over women, so if men start forcing their way into women’s sport, they will ruin it for women. That’s a threat.
