A mother of a female collegiate swimmer has spoken out about the unfair practice of allowing biological males to compete on women’s sports teams. In an emotionally-charged video message, she asserts that her daughter should not have to fight a woke political agenda and “deserves to have a college experience unmarred by this issue.”
The mother, who is blacked out in the video for fear her daughter will face repercussions, condemns those in charge for allowing transgender biologically male swimmers to compete against females.
The mother states on the video that her daughter has competed against Lia Thomas, a biological male who broke many records while competing on the girl’s team this year. She implied that the administration was condoning a form of theft in allowing a “full-grown male” to “take” the place of female competitors on the team and their hard-earned records.
Particularly disturbing is the mother’s charge that female swimmers were warned by school officials “not to speak about the transgender issue.”
The poised but angry mother said:
“Holy cow, we’re [talking] 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.”
The mother continued:
The Girls are “frightened… 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 mother as “Margaret,” captioning the video:
“…The NCAA, USA Swimming, the Ivy League, and University of Pennsylvania have all turned their backs on female athletes. 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 refers to the situation as an “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,” said ‘Margaret.’ “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.”
