I don’t hate Lia Thomas because she’s a transsexual; I hate her because she’s a cheat.
At the Ivy League Championship Swim Meet last weekend, Thomas easily won four events, setting pool and league records. She may be the most-improved swimmer in history. She was ranked 462nd in the country a few years ago, and is now ranked Number 1.
The difference is not that her swim times have gotten better. It’s that her competition has gotten worse. Her Number 462 ranking was against men, while her Number 1 ranking is against women.
Thomas is on the women’s swim team at Penn but went through her entire life including her development years of puberty as a man with male testosterone levels producing male height, weight and muscle mass.
No, not that kind of first. After all, this is a Democrat administration and so we’re not talking about dead white patriarchal European so-called merit.
What we’re talking about is that you need to be a “first” in your skin color or sexuality. Such as “first Asian Director of the Office of Management and Budget” or “first black woman vice president” or “first gay cabinet member” or “first Native American cabinet secretary.”
Or the subject of this column. Biden boasts that he has nominated the first transsexual Assistant Secretary for Health and Human Services.
