A Predictable Outcome (December 7, 2021)

“A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.” – Deuteronomy 22:5

Will Thomas is a biological male who competed for the Quakers, the men’s swimming team at the University of Pennsylvania for three years. This year, however, in his last eligible season to swim at the University of Pennsylvania, Thomas decided not to swim for the men’s swimming team, but rather to identify as a female, and compete for the women’s swimming team at UPenn.

At a recent competition, Thomas had a massive day where he saw a lot of success. Thomas concluded the women’s competition by winning three events, setting a couple of new program records, and setting two top times in the NCAA this year for women’s swimming competitions.

To say the least, this was a very predictable outcome as biological men hold many physical advantages over women. The Independent Women’s Forum and Law Center recently published the report, “Competition: Title X, Male-Bodied Athletes, and the Threat to Women’s Sports” which details many of these advantages.

The report states, “that males have a 10% to 13% advantage over females in the sport of swimming.” It is no wonder that Thomas is unfairly dominating his female competition and stealing victories and records that should belong to biological women with the enormous physical advantages he has over them.

This once again affirms the need for the Kentucky state legislature to step up and pass legislation that protects women’s sports by not allowing biological men to destroy female athletics. Women should not be sacrificed just to advance the far left’s LGBTQ+ agenda.

Father, we pray that our legislators here in Kentucky will take a stand and courageously protect women by passing a bill to save women’s sports. Lord, may our nation return to Your truth about gender and human sexuality. Father, help our lawmakers to pass legislation that upholds objective truth and not subjective opinions. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
