“I am a woman, just like anybody else on the team,” Lia Thomas, the
transgender collegiate swimmer, said in an interview with Sports
Illustrated. Except, no, Lia is not a woman, and Lia is surely not like
anybody else on the women’s swimming team. It is absurd to think
otherwise, and such talk must stop. It has gone on long enough.

Lia is not, nor ever will be, a woman. Lia can refer to Lia in any
particular way Lia wants. Lia can dress however Lia wants. Lia can
identify however Lia wants. But Lia has male genitalia . Lia does not have
breasts. Lia cannot bear children or produce eggs. Lia does not have a
menstrual cycle. Lia will never go through menopause. These are the
biological norms for being a woman. These are facts. This is science. And,
as we all know from the past two years, science must be trusted.

Lia’s declaration of being a woman, and subsequently having an article
published in Sports Illustrated celebrating it, should raise flags. One
cannot authentically change from male to female just by saying so.
Embracing such a fantasy will cause irreparable harm to women in the
future. It will ultimately result in the loss of opportunities for women
in every aspect of society. If a male wishes to self-identify as female,
that’s a personal choice. However, his right to embrace a female identity
must not infringe on the rights and opportunities of actual females. Real
women should not have to suffer so Lia Thomas can identify as one.

“I’m a woman, so I belong on the women’s team,” the swimmer said in the
interview. “Trans people deserve that same respect every other athlete
gets.” But Lia is not a woman, and Lia’s anatomy and physiology show that.
As far as respect is concerned, other athletes do not traditionally
compete against opponents who are biologically different. And, as the
saying goes, “respect is earned, not given.”

For Lia to describe Lia as “just like anybody else on the team” is
delusional. Nobody else on the female swimming team at the University of
Pennsylvania swam on the men’s team for three years. No other female had
the bone structure of a male. No other females benefited from a larger
percentage of skeletal muscle that post-pubescent male bodies have. None
of the other females have the larger hearts that men do (proportionate to
body size). And last but certainly not least, none of the other females
enjoyed the height advantage Lia Thomas did.

Lia Thomas is a microcosm of the larger problem regarding transgender
people in society — a sense of entitlement. Initially, the transgender
rights movement sought to achieve equality and acceptance. People fought
to not be discriminated against or have their civil rights violated. Yet,
those days are gone. It has morphed into a toxic crusade advocating
priority and privilege. It encourages acts such as Lia Thomas announcing
(and believing) that Lia is a woman — when it is categorically not true.

Furthermore, while Lia seeks respect, Lia has directly benefited from
disrespecting Lia’s teammates. They lost the right to fair athletic
competition because of Lia. They lost the right to not be exposed to male
nudity in their locker room. They lost the right to be crowned champions
of certain events because Lia had faster times. It is true that Lia should
not be disrespected. However, Lia Thomas must also respect others —
especially the women who lost their rights so Lia could shine.

The case of Lia Thomas represents an important cultural issue. Transgender
people should not be victims of any form of discrimination, harassment, or
violation of their civil rights. At the same time, transgender propaganda
must not be allowed to recreate science or tear down societal norms, but
this is exactly what is occurring. Declaring pronouns, creating numerous
genders, making up words in the English language, and vilifying anyone who
disagrees with such things is not equality or respect. It is societal
repression.

Lia Thomas is not a woman; Lia Thomas is transgender.

Lis Thomas is mentally ill, no question about it. You cannot change your
birth gender and the idiot psychologists and psychiatrists who say you can
should all have their licenses revoked for hippocratic oath violations.

DO NO HARM! Catering to and encouraging some mentally ill moron is HARM!
