After University of Pennsylvania women’s swimming team member Lia Thomas, formerly known as Will Thomas, won two more events against female swimmers on Saturday, one teammate who preferred to remain anonymous spoke out, saying, “Women are now third-class citizens.”
Lia Thomas won the 100-yard and 200-yard freestyle races in the meet against Harvard University.
The anonymous teammate told The Washington Examiner, “Lia was not even close to being competitive as a man in the 50 and the 100. But just because Lia is biologically a man, [Lia] is just naturally better than many females in the 50 and the 100 or anything that [Lia] wasn’t good at as a man.”
The teammate continued, “The top people at NCAA, who are on the board of directors … they are not protecting women’s rights. Imagine if there was this kind of inequality in men’s sports. Or someone found out about doping in a men’s sport. It would be fixed in a blink of an eye. Everyone would be all over it. But because it’s women, they don’t care.”
