Female-identifying University of Pennsylvania athlete Lia Thomas, a biological male, has been lauded for smashing multiple records in the women's swimming competitions at UPenn.
Even after a Wednesday team meeting where a source says Penn administration "strongly advised" its swimmers to avoid talking to the media about the situation surrounding transgender Penn swimmer Lia Thomas, a second female Penn swimmer has stepped forward to speak out via an exclusive interview with OutKick.
The second female Penn swimmer to speak out, who was granted anonymity due to what is viewed as threats from the university, activists, and the political climate, wants people to know that Penn swimmers are "angry" over the lack of fairness in the sport as Lia Thomas destroys the record books and brings fellow teammates to tears.
The second Penn swimmer to come forward was at the University of Akron Zippy Invitational where she watched Lia Thomas beat fellow teammate Anna Kalandadze by 38 seconds in the 1650 freestyle. OutKick's source described Penn swimmers on the Akron pool deck as upset and crying, knowing they were going to be demolished by Thomas.
Gee, what's got these ladies so upset?
"They feel so discouraged because no matter how much work they put in it, they're going to lose. Usually, they can get behind the blocks and know they out-trained all their competitors and they're going to win and give it all they've got."
They're right, you know. These ladies are among the most talented and fittest athletes in the country, they could run circles around most of us in the water...and yet there's just no way they can compete in their league with the natural, undeniable advantages of male physiology.
Call it biology, call it nature, call it evolution—whatever you want to call it, these young ladies are crying because, after a lifetime of work, they know that they've been kneecapped by an incompetent school administration bowing to woke politics.
