(Republican Insider) – It’s pretty remarkable that we even have to have these kinds of discussions. 10 years ago, no one would have ever guessed there would actually be a debate regarding men participating in women’s sports but here we are.
Men have been dominating women’s sports under the guise of “transgenderism” over the course of the last couple years and while many, many Americans don’t agree with it being allowed, the trans-activists claim transgender women (biological men) have no physical advantage over their female competitors.
Of course, we all know this is nothing more than an outright lie but now some doctors are publicly stepping up and confirming that biological men do, in fact, have a strong competitive advantage over their female opponents even with testosterone suppression therapies.
While trans-activists can claim biological men don’t have any advantage over women in sports, the reality is that “transgender women” utterly crush their competition nearly every time they are permitted to compete against biological women.
Proof that men, no matter how transgender they claim to be, are no match for biological women could not be more clear than in the case of Lia Thomas, a transgender swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania who dominated the NCAA women’s competition this year with ease.
On Monday, The New York Times reported that a doctor from the prestigious Mayo Clinic and an international physiologist who consults on sports have both agreed that the male body gives athletes like Thomas a major advantage over female competitors.
“There are social aspects to sport, but physiology and biology underpin it. Testosterone is the 800-pound gorilla,” Dr. Michael J. Joyner of the Mayo Clinic said.
It doesn’t matter how much testosterone suppression a transgender athlete undergoes, they will still have a serious advantage over female competitors.
Sports physiologist Dr. Ross Tucker agreed, pointing out, “Lia Thomas is the manifestation of the scientific evidence. The reduction in testosterone did not remove her biological advantage.”
Thomas competed for the Penn men’s team as Will Thomas for three seasons but was an average, at best, competitor and only won a few meets here and there.
Then suddenly, Thomas came back from a hiatus as Lia and joined the women’s team with the support and blessings of the entire coaching staff and school officials.
Soon he was annihilating the competition despite meeting the standards for testosterone levels. He beat his female competitors with such ease that he was even caught bragging about how easy it was to win.
His success has not been without criticism, however. Many from outside of the school have been up in arms over Thomas being allowed to compete against women and in December the parents of about 10 female swimmers sent a letter to the NCAA to demand Thomas be banned from competing against women.
Of course, the NCAA ignored the letter altogether and did nothing while Thomas continued to shatter records and eliminate women from competitions in which they should have been able to compete had it not been for him.
Thomas claimed many championships that should have gone to biological women.
Swimmers from other schools began to get involved in the discussion over whether Thomas should be allowed to compete against women. One Virginia Tech swimmer expressed her anger over the situation.
“Then you go into it with a mindset that you are, you don’t have a chance, if that makes sense,” she said. “Like, it’s hard to compete against someone with the aerobic capacity, the muscle development, the body of a man — it’s hard.”
The swimmer said her teammate was 17th in the race for 16 spots and had her place taken by Thomas which understandably made her “very emotional, and it’s hard to see since it’s her last NCAAs and she really loves that race.”
“And it was just heartbreaking to see that she put all her effort into it today, and with the best time that she’d went in the morning session before, and still not make it back. It’s hard to see someone who works every day, every night, still not be able to compete against someone like that,” she said.
Now the doctors who spoke with the Times have confirmed all of the concerns that Thomas’ competitors, and even his teammates, had voiced over the past year.
GMA interviewed Lia Thomas today. Great timing. Our film features one of Thomas's teammates. She told me that women on her team were silenced and referred to psychological counseling if they objected to having Thomas on the team.

It really should go without saying that men ought not be allowed to compete in sports against women. It doesn’t matter if a man decides he suddenly feels more like a woman on the inside, his physiological make-up doesn’t change and it gives him a major advantage over women.
Men are free to live as women if that’s what they so desire but they don’t have the right to force us all to deny reality and play along. This is getting to be truly absurd.
It’s time to stop allowing the inmates to run the asylum.

This is so low and ‘below the belt’, so to speak. This should not be happening.
Men who claim to be women and participate in sports are resorting to cheating.
Just because he wants to be considered a female that doesn’t mean he is one. Everyone is born the gender they are whether you like it or not. To compete with biological females when you are really a biological male but feel like a female that doesn’t give you a pass. These biological females are being cheated and it’s a rotten shame that no one is stopping this. Why are these coaches or owners being intimidated by what the right thing to do, and that is to say hell no to men wanting to compete with women. Put together a transgender team and let them compete, or is that to intimidating?
I agree. I also won’t refer to them by what they think they are. If your a male and you still have your package the you are a male plain and simple. And vise versa! You can stop the hormones and cut your hair and your back to you former self who couldn’t beat the men so you go after girls, to me your nothing more than a sicko. Get your head looked at. It ain’t hormones you need!
Well—other sports have weight categories and different classes, and they could invent trans classes, but trans women wouldn’t like that, because, as you say, what they are doing now is cheating, and if the competition became fair, then trans men would still be competing against trans men, with the same result that caused them to cheat in the first place!
It’s like when the left set out to “normalize” homosexuality. It was not enough just to TOLERATE it, and not “pick on” those who were homosexual. No, you had to APPROVE and APPLAUD their perversion. It is the same with the trans BS–it’s not enough to accept them — no, you must applaud and CELEBRATE them and buy into their delusions by allowing them to compete against the opposite sex they “claim” to be part of. This Lia Thomas character says he didn’t join the women’s swim team to win medals. Oh, really? He was a substandard competitor at BEST when he was competing against other MEN. So then he “decided” he was a woman and started competing as a woman and breaking all the records and beating all the women, and winning all the prizes. You can’t tell ME that was not a MAJOR part of his “discovery” that he was “really” a woman!
There’s another problem too that a few women have mentioned. In the locker rooms where he gets to shower and dress or undress, he has his penis swinging around almost as if he’s doing it deliberately. He’s not a real transgender, he’s just a man dressing up as a woman with a penis. What a fake and why the swimmers and the association go along with his faking I don’t guess. It must be all about the money he’s racking in and the so called fake timing he is having recorded as women’s timing which is also fake. Well LGBT people hate women as they consider real women as competition for men so they could care less if they are hurting women, they are having a great time hurting women. It makes them look more appealing to LGBT people as homosexuals. After all, it’s LGBT pushing this transgender lie, isn’t it.
Why are Americans so gutless to allow “PC” and “woke” to dictate a “new normal” when we know it’s BS? At 80, I feel sorry for so many spineless people to go along, afraid to make waves. I chose a military career to ensure others wouldn’t live in fear of anything. I must have had too much faith in my fellow citizens to do “the right thing”. At least when it ” turns turtle”, zi should be gone.
