USA Swimming official Cynthia Millen quit over the recent introduction (and domination) of trans athletes in women’s sports competitions. Fox News has interviewed her on more than one occasion to get her full and complete side of the story. During at least one interview, the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) swimmer Lia Thomas was brought up. Lia was formerly known as Will and they competed at UPenn from 2018-2020 as a male. They then became a woman and competed at the same school against the women.
This is clearly unfair from a strictly biological perspective and nothing else. And it places officials (especially female officials) in between a rock and a hard place when it comes to being able to judge competitions fairly. If a person has been observing races for the better part of 20 or 30 years, how can they ignore the obvious advantages that biological XY men have over biological XX women? This is madness that must end. Maybe Cynthia Millen felt like the only way to try and combat this ridiculous game that is being played is by resigning. And that’s exactly what she did. Many others are bound to follow her. Not just other officials, but female athletes who are trying (and failing) to compete against biological men.
