There are claims that the University of Pennsylvania is getting ready to sue if their star swimmer Lia Thomas is not able to participate in the upcoming swimming championship. This is in response to the NCAA revising their rules on trans in female sports. Looks like the University of Pennsylvania has no faith in the actual women on their female swim team.
“The University of Pennsylvania is weighing whether to pursue legal action if transgender swimmer Lia Thomas is prohibited from competing in the upcoming NCAA women’s swimming championship, according to a report.
A swimmer on the university’s women’s team told Fox News, “I have a feeling that if USA Swimming changes their rules, they will be filing a lawsuit for Lia to swim, but they wouldn’t do that for us.”
“That’s just really upsetting,” the swimmer told the outlet under the condition of anonymity, adding that she had heard about the potential lawsuit from “some of the administrators.”
Thomas is eligible to compete on the women’s team under current USA Swimming rules that require a year of testosterone suppression. Under new NCAA rules, transgender athletes will be required to document testosterone levels to remain eligible, leaving Thomas’ eligibility for the NCAA women’s championships up in the air.
The NCAA announced earlier this week that it had updated its transgender-participation policy to reflect the practices of the U.S. and International Olympic Committees. Under the new policy, transgender participation in a particular sport will be determined by that sport’s national governing body. If no such governing body exists, participation will be determined by the sport’s international federation rules. In the event that an international federation has no transgender policy, the American branch of a particular sport will follow the IOC policy.”
I guess the NCAA suddenly realized that it was probably not fair that there was a guy on the female swim team who could essentially just skip his hormones and just destroy these ladies. And whereas I don’t know if Thomas has been skipping his hormone therapy, he has been just murdering his opponents. So now that the NCAA wants to ensure that Thomas has a fair level of estrogen and testosterone the University of Pennsylvania is upset… upset that they can’t cheat anymore.
