The fringes of the left are dangerously moving to the middle.
Ideas that would’ve been laughed out of any room ten years ago are now fully embraced by legacy media.
Now left-wing radicals destroyed one sport with a shocking outcome.
The radical transgender movement is advancing at a startling speed.
Less than a decade ago, the idea of a biological male being housed in a women’s prison or competing in women’s sports would’ve been considered absurd.
But this is the reality of 2022.
Biological male swimmer Lia Thomas, born William Thomas, has unsurprisingly been crushing the competition in women’s college swimming.
Thomas, who was unremarkable as a male swimmer on the University of Pennsylvania swim team, has shattered women’s swimming records.
The sheer domination in this race (and significant progress in rankings) highlights the physical advantages biological men have when competing directly against biological women. Everyone has a place in sport, but this level of unfairness to be allowed is mind-boggling 🤯 https://t.co/KQhrOzRAHm pic.twitter.com/ytlTpaXdtL

The so-called mainstream media have stayed away from the story because they understand that the optics are terrible.
Natasha Chart, a feminist who is critical of the radical transgender movement, said:
“They’re just trying to blunt force this [transgender claim] through…They’ve got this strategy of smearing and shouting down their opponents now that they can’t absolutely shut down the [public] debate…The editors at all of these publications won’t stand up to charges [of bigotry]…Articles will get pulled or people will get fired…There’s no critical thought. There’s no willingness to engage in debate on the topic.”
Prominent feminist athletes like tennis legend Martina Navratilova have spoken out against biological males competing in women’s sports, but it hasn’t moved the establishment left.
Even Caitlyn Jenner, who won Olympic gold as Bruce Jenner, said biological males have a marked advantage.
This is the consequence of radical gender theory being pumped into the heads of kids in college, and now K-12.
Tennis great John McEnroe got raked over the coals for suggesting that Serena Williams would be ranked in the mid-hundreds if she played on the men’s tour.
Now people are witnessing precisely what he was talking about.
Thomas was ranked 462nd in the men’s division, but now ranks 1st and could challenge Olympians like Katie Ledecky.
From Swimming World Magazine:
“A look at the all-time rankings in the 500 free shows that Leah Smith is the second-fastest female performer in the event. Yet, she is almost five seconds back of Ledecky. The fact that Thomas could break the record of such a once-in-a-generation athlete confirms the biological advantages she possesses, and their power.”
Thomas and the radical transgender movement are making a mockery of women’s sports, and everybody can see it.
That’s why ESPN has not covered the story in a month.
