Transgenderism and the erasure of women are a major part. This is seen the most in the area of women’s sports where men identifying as women are joining women’s teams and dominating competitions.
Lia Thomas, a U Penn swimmer, was the most notable case. She gained national attention after new Ivy-League records at the University of Akron’s Zippy Invitational. It is important to note that these records weren’t set by a female. Thomas is a male.

Despite the media’s celebration of Thomas’s victories, his record-breaking isn’t impressing many others. It’s especially not going well with members of his own team who have spoken out in the past about the unfair nature of Thomas’s victories.

They admitted that they were under pressure to cheer for Thomas.
“When the whole team is together, we have to be like, ‘Oh my gosh, go Lia, that’s great, you’re amazing.’ It’s very fake,” said one swimmer.
OutKick received a report from a source saying that Thomas touched the wall while racing, and everyone was stunned. That is quite unusual for these types of races. When Anna Kalandadze came in second, however, everyone erupted into cheers.
Now, another of Thomas’s teammates is speaking out according to the Washington Examiner, and confessing that thanks to people like Thomas, she feels like a third-class citizen:
“Women are now third-class citizens,” the swimmer told me. She also specifically detailed how Thomas’s male genetics provide a distinct advantage. Where William didn’t perform as well at some events in the men’s sport, Thomas has thrived as a woman.
“Lia was not even close to being competitive as a man in the 50 and the 100 (freestyle events),” the anonymous swimmer said. “But just because Lia is biologically a man, [Lia]She is naturally more attractive than most females between the 50-100 and 100 ranges, or any other category. [Lia] wasn’t good at as a man.”
Looking at the stats, it’s clear that Thomas isn’t very good when competing against his own gender, consistently falling behind men’s records by decent lengths. However, as a “woman,” Thomas is taking the natural strength and power of the male form and utilizing it to dominate women’s competitions as everyone is forced to cheer for him.
It’s that outward public support that the swimmer believes is truly making the situation worse as only having these conversations in private isn’t helping anything and it’s actually harming the future of these women.
“I’m trying to do everything I can without harming my future from stopping this from happening,” she said. “I can’t just sit back and let something like this happen. I’m not just going to sit back and say, ‘My rights are being taken away, too bad.’ It’s embarrassing that people aren’t speaking out more.”
It should be pretty sad that a woman can’t speak out about women’s issues for fear of being targeted as being intolerant and hateful because a man is eliminating her opportunities and making sure that they stay silent through socio-political pressure.
But even more sad is the fact that these men who identify as something they aren’t are erasing women. In the face of transgender violence on society, feminine identity is being erased and shamed. Along with social justice-obsessed and new-wave feminists, LGBT activists have made a lot of progress in their quest to make women more like men and less feminine. This effectively excludes women who prefer to embrace their natural gender.
The left weirdly refers to this as being “inclusive,” but this is a buzzword that actually means shoving women to the side in order to make room for “women” who are clearly not women. They’re invading women’s spaces, competing in their sports, and punishing them with social anger when they speak out. It’s even gotten to the point where these men complain that lesbians don’t look at them as sexual partners, and lesbians are voicing their anger over their communities being infiltrated.
Thomas is cheating. The bottom line.
But he’s not just cheating in a competition, he’s cheating actual women out of what is rightfully theirs.
This should not be praised by the society.
