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. 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.
