Is this the beginning of a revolt?

Trans swimmer “Lia” Thomas became NCAA champion in the women’s 500 freestyle at the NCAA swimming championships this weekend.

William Thomas was a crappy swimmer who never won medals so he decided to play dress up and identify as a woman — and now he’s a champion!

The female swimmers snubbed “Lia” Thomas on the podium this weekend after he crushed the girls in the swim meet.

The public was outraged by Lia Thomas’ ‘victory’ and now it looks like there may be a real revolt brewing among female swimmers.

Virginia Tech swimmer Reka Gyorgy says her finals spot was stolen from her by transgender competitor William “Lia” Thomas because of the “NCAA’s decision to let someone who is not a biological female to compete.”

Reka Gyorgy asked the NCAA to change their rules on transgender swimmers:

I’m writing this letter right now in hopes that the NCAA will open their eyes and change these rules in the future. It doesn’t promote our sport in a good way and I think it is disrespectful against the biologically female swimmers who are competing in the NCAA.

I know you could say I had the opportunity to swim faster and make the top 16, but this situation makes it a bit different and I can’t help but be angry or sad. It hurts me, my ear and other women in the pool.

One spot was taken away from the girl who got 9th in the 500 free and didn’t make it back to the A final preventing her from being an All-American. Every event that transgender athletes competed in was one spot taken away from biological females throughout the meet.

I ask that the NCAA takes time to think about all the other biological women in swimming, try to think how they would feel if they would be in our shoes. Make the right changes for our sport and for a better future in swimming.
