My cmnt: Watch moving commentary by this mom watching her daughter lose to a man.

A mother of a female swimmer in the Ivy League spoke out in an explosive video condemning those in charge for allowing a transgender swimmer, who is biologically male, to compete against females.

The mother, who says her daughter has personally competed against Lia Thomas, complained that a “full-grown male” is now being allowed to “take” from female competitors and break their hard-earned records. She also claimed her daughter and other biologically female swimmers were warned by higher-ups not to speak about the transgender issue.

“Holy cow, we’re going to talk about a male swimmer — a full-grown male — attempting to take down female icon records, and taking a spot on an Ivy team from one of the Penn swimmers, who have rightfully deserved it,” she told Independent Women’s Forum, according to the Post Millennial. “And we’re talking about, this person’s gonna swim on every relay going forward at championship meets, is going to take the position of a woman on a travel team, is going to take a space in every finals.”

Girls are “frightened” to speak out about the inequality after they were warned to keep their mouths shut, the mother explained.

“And they’re frightened,” the woman said, her voice shaking with emotion. “They’re frightened of losing friends. They’re frightened of being kicked off their teams. They’re frightened of being told by their universities that they’re transphobic and hateful.”

Independent Women’s Forum identified the woman as “Margaret,” captioning the video: “Margaret’s* daughter is a swimmer in the Ivy League who’s been forced to compete all season against XY athlete Will ‘Lia’ Thomas. Thomas — who competed for three years on the University of Pennsylvania Men’s Swim Team — has dominated women’s collegiate swimming competitions this season and broken numerous female legacy records.”

“The NCAA, USA Swimming, the Ivy League, and University of Pennsylvania have all turned their backs on female athletes,” the group said. “When biological males are allowed to swim on women’s teams, female athletes lose. They lose opportunities to win and to compete. And… they lose self-confidence. Dividing athletes by biological sex gives women the chance to compete and win.”

The mother said she fears for her daughter but felt she needed to speak out about the injustice.

“I don’t want my daughter to have any repercussions based upon my desire to speak out for sex-based rights and representation for women,” she said. “She deserves to have a college experience unmarred by this issue, and she deserves to have the time and ability to process what’s going on with her in her own way.”

“At the end of the day, I hope that the IOC, the NCAA, and governing bodies of sport all recognize that women are women,” the woman closed. “We can’t shrug off our sex. Men are men, they can’t shrug off their sex, and women’s sports is protected for females.”

Penn Swimmer Lia Thomas, a biological male who identifies as female, crushed the competition on Thursday, taking first in the NCAA Women’s Swimming Championship 500 yard freestyle.

Following the win, Thomas, who competed against males before identifying as female, spoke to a reporter from ESPN, discussing the “spotlight” the swimmer is under.

“Lia, how did that performance measure up to your expectations coming into this meet tonight?” the reported asked Thomas.

“I didn’t have a whole lot of expectations for this meet, I was just happy to be here, trying to race and compete as best as I could,” Thomas answered.

“You’ve undoubtedly been under the spotlight over the past few months, how have you been dealing with that, and reasoning with everything?” the reporter followed up.

“I try to ignore it as much as a I can,” Thomas said, “I try to focus on my swimming, what I need to do to get ready for my races, and just try to block out everything else.”

“What did that race mean to you?” the reporter asked.

“It means the world to be here, be with my two best friends and teammates, and be able to compete,” Thomas ended the interview.

As reported by The Daily Wire, Thomas was cheered on while destroying the biologically female competition:

Onlookers cheered Thursday evening as a biological man who identifies as a transgender woman annihilated female competitors in a collegiate race.

University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas clocked in at 4:33:24, finishing first in the NCAA Women’s Swimming Championship 500 yard freestyle.

The University of Virginia’s Emma Weyant, a freshman, finished second with 4 minutes 34 seconds and 99 milliseconds, dropping 2 seconds and 26 milliseconds from her previous time.

Erica Sullivan, a freshman from the University of Texas, finished third at 4 minutes, 35 seconds, and 92 milliseconds.

Earlier this week, a mother of a female swimmer in the Ivy League spoke out in an explosive video condemning those in charge for allowing Thomas to compete against females.

The mother, who says her daughter has personally competed against Thomas, complained that a “full-grown male” is now being allowed to “take” from female competitors and break their hard-earned records.
