Save women's sports... and also comics.
Radical liberal artists recreates Scooby Doo and The Gang as as gender non-confirming Antifa detectives in “anti-transphobia” comic strip.
Lia Thomas, originally William Thomas, provoked outrage after winning the women’s national swimming championship in the United States of America. In a new Scooby Doo comic by trasngender lesbian artist Bria (LifeofBria), individuals who believe Lia’s participation in the tournament was unjust are labelled “transphobic.”
Lia Thomas spent 22 years of her life as a man. However, last year she came out as a transgender woman and decided to compete in women’s sport.
Before Lia came out as a transgender woman she was ranked 480th in men’s swimming, but after about 6 months of training as a girl and after competing in her first national championship she snatched first place and is now the highest ranking female swimmer.
It was clear from the get go that none of the other biological female swimmers stood a chance against Lia the second she dived in. Her masculine physique and height gave her a clear advantage over the other swimmers. She remained at least one or two body length ahead of Olympic medalist Emma Weyant.
Peaceful protests erupted after the transgender female swimmer was declared the winner of the NCAA Championship in Atlanta last week and some people even refused to accept Lia Thomas as the winner, opting to congratulate former Olympic medalist Emma Weyant for the victory instead.
Women stood in unity outside of the venue in Atlanta holding signs saying “save women’s sports.”
Several Antifa counter-protesters attacked the women, snatching the signs from their hands and smashing them in the process.
The events inspired transgender radical liberal artist Bria to create a comic of a gender non-confirming Scooby Doo Gang “solving the mystery behind transphobia” of the Save Women’s Sports protest.
Bria (LifeOfBria), like Lia, identifies as a transgender lesbian. They both have male genitalia and attracted to women.
Even Lia’s own swimming teammates have expressed that they don’t feel safe sharing locker rooms with Lia Thomas, especially because she is openly sexual with her teammates, makes passes at them and refuses to cover up “her male genitalia.”
“It’s definitely awkward because Lia still has male body parts and is still attracted to women,” a biological female teammate said. Thomas has reportedly told her teammates that she dates women.
“Multiple swimmers have raised it, multiple different times,” she said. “But we were basically told that we could not ostracize Lia by not having her in the locker room and that there’s nothing we can do about it, that we basically have to roll over and accept it, or we cannot use our own locker room.”
She added, “It’s really upsetting because Lia doesn’t seem to care how it makes anyone else feel. The 35 of us are just supposed to accept being uncomfortable in our own space and locker room for, like, the feelings of one.”
“The school was so focused on making sure Lia was okay, and doing everything they possibly could do for her, that they didn’t even think about the rest of us,” the teammate told the Daily Mail.
Another teammate revealed that she saw Lia, fully erect, while looking at her female teammates.
“I feel objectified when Lia’s in the shower’s with us. She stares, she makes lewd comments, and I’ve even seen her fully erect. I’ve brought this up with the school and they haven’t done anything about it.
Virginia Tech swimmer Reka Gyorgy wrote an explosive letter to the NCAA and accused Lia Thomas of stealing her spot at the National Championship in Atlanta.
“This is my last college meet ever and I feel frustrated,” she said.
“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 team and other women in the pool. One spot was taken away from the girl who got ninth 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.”
DeSantis Proclaims Female Swimmer Winner of Race Over Biological Male
PUNTA GORDA, Florida–Governor Ron DeSantis on March 22, declared runner-up swimmer Sarasota native Emma Weyant the “rightful winner of the 2022 NCAA Division 1 Women’s 500-yard Freestyle” over biological male Lia Thomas.
Thomas, a University of Pennsylvania student, finished the event at 4:33:24, and the University of Virginia’s Weyant came in second with a time of 4:34:99 at the competition in Atlanta on March 17.
“We’re doing [this] proclamation, saying that Emma is the best female swimmer in the 500 freestyle because she earned that, and we need to stop allowing organizations like the NCAA to perpetuate frauds on the public–And that’s exactly what they’re doing,” DeSantis said in a press release. “And so in Florida, we’re gonna be very clear when they try to do things like that … when they try to counteract the ability of women to realize their dreams, we are gonna speak out about that.”
The NCAA had not responded to The Epoch Times’ requests for comment by press time.
DeSantis went on to say that women have “fought for decades” for “equal opportunities in athletics” and allowing a biological male to compete “erodes” those opportunities for women in sports.
“As a father of two daughters, I want my girls, and every girl in Florida, to compete on an even playing field for the opportunities available to young women in sports,” he said in January 2021.
In Florida’s full legislative session last year, the governor signed the “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” a bill he said will “preserve fair opportunities for female athletes and may not be open to students of the male sex,” based on the student’s biological sex listed on an official birth record.
At the time, the NCAA said it would consider pulling championships from states that ban transgender athletes from participating in women’s and girls’ sports.
“This did not deter the governor from signing the bill,” Christina Pushaw, the governor’s press secretary said in a written statement. “On the contrary, it only strengthened his resolve to protect athletic opportunities for women and girls in Florida.”
According to the NCAA, Thomas, 22, began transitioning in 2019 with hormone therapy and followed NCAA and Ivy League rules. However, Thomas was scrutinized by those inside and outside the sport about whether transgender women and girls should be allowed to compete in female sports.
A letter written on behalf of 16 unnamed members of UPenn’s swim team was in response to the NCAA’s updated policy to allow each sport to determine the eligibility of transgender athletes. They asked that Thomas not be allowed to compete in the NCAA swim event on March 17.
The letter read in part, “We fully support Lia Thomas in her decision to affirm her gender identity and to transition from a man to a woman–Lia has every right to live her life authentically.”
“However,” the letter continued. “We also recognize that, when it comes to sports competition, the biology of sex is a separate issue from someone’s gender identity. Biologically, Lia holds an unfair advantage over the competition in the women’s category, as evidenced by her rankings that have bounced from #462 as a male to #1 as a female.”
So far, 10 states have passed laws banning transgenders from competing on sports teams that match their “gender identities.” They are Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Texas, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, South Dakota, West Virginia, and Tennessee.
Trans Swimmer Lia Thomas Caught Flashing Male Genitalia in Female Locker Room
Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas refuses to cover up her male genitalia in female locker rooms, according to some of her UPenn swim squad teammates, who have admitted they feel “uncomfortable” changing in the private space with a transgender woman who dates women.
‘It’s definitely awkward because Lia still has male body parts and is still attracted to women,’ one of Thomas’ teammates revealed to the Daily Mail.
The swimmer said that multiple teammates have raised their concerns with the coach, trying to get Thomas, who competed on UPenn’s men’s swim team until 2019, ousted from the female locker room.
‘We were basically told that we could not ostracize Lia by not having her in the locker room and that there’s nothing we can do about it,‘ she said.
Instead of removing Thomas from the female locker room, UPenn offered mental health services to female swimmers.
‘It’s really upsetting because Lia doesn’t seem to care how it makes anyone else feel,‘ the swimmer continued. ‘The 35 of us are just supposed to accept being uncomfortable in our own space and locker room for, like, the feelings of one.’
DailyMail report: She said UPenn’s handling of the locker room issue is emblematic of the school’s overall approach to the Lia Thomas controversy, with school bending over backwards to make Thomas feel welcome without seeming to care how it affects her teammates.
‘The school was so focused on making sure Lia was okay, and doing everything they possibly could do for her, that they didn’t even think about the rest of us,’ the teammate said.
‘It just seems like the women who built this program and the people who were here before Lia don’t matter. And it’s frustrating because Lia doesn’t really seem to be bothered by all the attention, not at all. Actually she seems like she enjoys it. It’s affected all of us way more than it’s affected her.’
The school released a terse statement last month that it was offering mental health services to student-athletes.
Thomas, 22, plans to break her longtime silence and exclusively share her story with Sports Illustrated, it was announced Wednesday.
The NCAA, which set rules allowing transgender athletes to compete after completing a year of hormone therapy, recently washed its hands of the row, announcing that transgender participation will now be determined by each sport’s national governing body.
In Thomas’ case, this would fall under USA Swimming, which is considering a new policy.
‘USA Swimming firmly believes in inclusivity and the opportunity for all athletes to experience the sport of swimming in a manner consistent with their gender identity and expression,’ USA Swimming stated last week.
‘We also strongly believe in competitive equity, and, like many, are doing our best to learn and educate ourselves on the appropriate balance in this space.‘
The swimmer welcomed USA Swimming’s involvement.
‘I’m actually happy that the NCAA passed the buck because USA Swimming is more conservative and they have stakes in the game,’ she said. ‘These are people who swam their whole lives, who have kids and daughters who swim, and they see what this is doing to the swim community.‘
She said she hopes any changes come before the NCAA championship in March, where Thomas has a chance to break all-time NCAA records set by Olympic gold medalists Missy Franklin and Katie Ledecky.
‘It’s definitely important that we don’t set this precedent,’ she said. ‘I think it’s important that women and also little girls aren’t looking up and saying, well, I don’t actually have a chance to win.’
She said the ‘equitable thing‘ would be to create an ‘open category‘ allowing transgender swimmers to compete on the men’s team.
‘That would allow Lia to still compete without having to take on that title of ‘men’s competition,’ while still allowing females the space they need to have fair competition,‘ she said.
Thomas, who was on the UPenn men’s team during her first three years, has been blowing women’s swimming records out of the water.
Her domination has prompted some of her teammates to voice their concerns, but without being named.
The swimmer who spoke with DailyMail.com said only two or three members actually support the status quo. Still, most others are scared to speak out, with the school prohibiting students from talking to the media.
‘There are a lot of cowards who don’t want to cause any kind of conflict or worry that they might get looked at the wrong way,‘ she said.
As for herself, she said, 'If this gets a little bit bigger, I might go on the record, but I’m definitely a little afraid. What I’m afraid of is that potential employers will Google my name and see commentary about things I said and think, oh, this person’s transphobic.'
