This person who styles himself Lia Thomas says he is a woman and thus entitled to compete with women, physically.
Much debate has raged over whether he can become a “she.” Notwithstanding the inarguable biological fact that – physically – he can’t be a she. Unless it is possible for a human being born with male genitalia and male chromosomes to become a woman – literally, physically – by simply changing hairstyle, clothes and name.
And – of course – insisting “she” is.
Getting others to agree “she” is. Pressuring others to pretend “she” is. As in, deny objective reality.
How do we know “she” is an asshole? Because it takes an asshole to steal scholarships and awards from people who deserved to win them.
“She” doesn’t – for the same reason the varsity football team doesn’t deserve to win the national trophy for JV football.
The same reason you don’t serve people cat and tell them it’s chicken.
For the same reason this writer doesn’t deserve to be ranked among the world’s most powerful women weight-lifters by dint of claiming he lacks the male genitalia, chromosomes and hormones he was born with, which make him a fairly strong man (for a middle-aged man) because he says he feels like a woman.
As “she” has done.
I’d be an asshole, too, if I did that.
But because I am a man, I don’t almost literally beat up on women. And literally beating up on them is where this he-says-he’s a “she” business is going to lead when he – another asshole, like “Lia” – only perhaps 225 or so – decides “she” wants to play against women in contact sports. That – and worse – is coming if assholes like “Lia” Thomas aren’t called out for being exactly what they are.
Sorry, sweetie. Your name-change and hairstyle change don’t change anything – as far as what you are. Which is a guy with confused feelings about his “identity” – at best. If not actually confused, then something else.
“She” ought to be embarrassed – but not so much because of “her” “identification,” though of course those who are trying to shut up any criticism of “her” asshole behavior are trying mightily to make it all about that.
Which it ain’t.
No one is suggesting that “Lia” ought not to be free to “identify” as whatever he wants to “identify” as. This however imposes no obligation upon others to affirm the asserted “identity” is actuality – though there are psychopathic people who do assert such an obligation exists.
In which case, any 50-year-old who wishes to have sex with a 14-year-old has only to “identify” as 14-years-old, himself. Age being just as bullshit fungible as sex. But if the latter form of bullshit is accepted as being actually fungible on the say-so of whomever “identifies” as a woman – or a man – who isn’t biologically a woman or a man – then there is no logical reason why some 50-year-old asshole pederast could not claim to be a 14-year-old and have relations with them.
This isn’t an attempt at humor. It is a logical extrapolation of the principle and people had better damned well come to grips with it.
As far as “Lia.” He needs to come to grips with the fact that he is an asshole.
That his leveraging of cultural and mental rot – including the pathetic passivity of people who know a man who was born with male genitalia, male chromosomes and whose body has been suffused with male hormones since puberty and even prior (it’s why a man’s testicles migrated outside the body when he was still an infant boy) is “woman” as much as a dog is a cat.
“Lia” knows what’s between his legs – no matter how deftly he tucks his bits and pieces between his legs. He may feel like a woman. But if he actually believes that he is one, he’s delusional and very badly in need of therapy.
If he insists on competing with women, despite his being a man, then he is a massive asshole – and in need of something else.
