“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” – Genesis 1:27
In 2022, Lia Thomas’ story highlighted the reality that women lose greatly in the transgender movement. Thomas who is a biological male but “identifies” as a transgender female, won an NCAA women’s swimming championship by taking the 500m freestyle title by dominating the female competition. In another race, he tied UK female swimmer Riley Gaines but the NCAA gave the trophy at the event to Thomas.
It seems, however, Thomas is not finished in his attempt to wreak havoc on women athletes as a biological male competing against them. Thomas is taking secret legal action in hopes of overturning a common-sense ban prohibiting biological males from competing against biological females for the Paris Olympic trials.
Thomas has hired the Canadian law firm Tyr to represent him in requesting the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland to overturn the rules imposed by World Aquatics. The goal of this lawsuit is the same one Thomas accomplished in the NCAA women’s swimming championship – to create an unfair level of competition and dominate the biological female swimmers.
Lia Thomas had the opportunity to compete in the “open category” on an international stage along with other trans-identifying athletes but declined. World Aquatics is doing the right thing and must continue to rightfully defend women swimmers and sports from the transgender movement where women lose.
LET US PRAY…
Father, may this lawsuit fail and may the truth and beauty of your created order shine bright. Lord, we pray that World Aquatics will remain strong in its defense of women’s sports and athletes. Father, may female athletes in the Olympics always be allowed to compete on a level and fair playing field.
