(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.
