Watch: Lia Thomas attacks biological women, accuses them of using 'guise of feminism' to push transphobia
Lia Thomas recently went on a podcast and claimed women are using the guise of feminism to push transphobia. Read that again. Lia Thomas, a biological male swimmer who has stolen multiple titles and records from biological women, accused women of distorting feminism.
I grow more tired with each passing day.
\u201cLia Thomas appears on a podcast interview trying to push for MEN to be allowed in women\u2019s sports, ahead of Biden administration\u2019s push to amend Title IX. \n\n\u201cThey're using the guise of feminism to sort of push transphobic beliefs. I think a lot of people in that camp sort of carry\u2026\u201d— Oli London (@Oli London) 1682493944
Thomas explained, "They're like, 'Oh we respect Lia, as a woman, as a trans woman, we respect her identity, we just don't think it's fair.' You can't really have that sort of half support where you're like, 'Oh I respect her as a woman here but not here.'''
"They're using the guise of feminism to sort of push transphobic beliefs. I think a lot of people in that camp sort of carry an implicit bias against trans people but don't want to, I guess, fully manifest or speak that out, and so they try to play it off as this sort of half support."
The interviewer then chimed in, "I think about how twisted 'feminism' has become. Their arguments, you know, in order to exclude anybody in the trans category, you have to reduce women to reproductive capacity, which is, in my opinion, extremely anti-feminist. I don't want to put those women down either. And I know you don't want to either, because I see pain. I see pain, and the pain is coming from somewhere. It's not you though, it's the patriarchy."
Oh of course, it's the patriarchy. If not for that archaic system, we'd all be free to *checks notes* allow biological men to dominate us in all sports. How could I have missed this?
A couple more things: that "half support" Lia mentioned is not because of an "implicit bias" against trans people. It's most likely because those girls know Lia is not a woman, but don't want to hurt Lia's feelings. So instead of simply saying, "Hey, you're a dude," they pretend to "affirm" Lia's identity, but go no further than the bare minimum.
And as for the "reducing women to reproductive capacity," women's ability to create and carry life is absolutely one of the most incredible aspects of being a woman. And the only reason we've had to "reduce" womanhood to this (though I would argue it is not a reduction at all) is because people are trying to argue that women have penises. Which is, ahem, incorrect.
