Trans swimmer Lia Thomas, formerly known as 462nd ranked William Thomas on the men's team, dominated the NCAA women's championships last weekend and everybody talked about it for days.

Thomas has been wrecking women's collegiate swimming for months now. He has been breaking records, snatching up medals, and making all his teammates uncomfortable in the ladies' locker room by routinely exposing his male genitals. The NCAA women's swimming and diving championship last weekend was no different. He took home the 500-yard freestyle title, which he won by more than 1.5 seconds. Although there were protestors at the event, all the swimmers still got in the pool with him and pretended like it was a fair fight.

Caitlyn Jenner, former Olympian when he went by Bruce Jenner, shared his thoughts recently on the presence of Thomas in women's sports. He has been consistent in urging everyone to protect women's sports and acknowledge that biological sex does exist, and he doubled down yet again.

As a former Olympic decathlete and gold medal winner, Jenner knows a thing or two about sports. He spoke out again to defend women's sports, refusing to recognize Thomas as a true medalist in the NCAA championship. Jenner tweeted in agreement with Florida governor Ron DeSantis who said Florida native Emma Weyant, the second place swimmer, was the true winner of the race.

"@GovRonDeSantis agreed! She is the rightful winner! @TMZ It’s not transphobic or anti-trans, it’s COMMON SENSE!" Jenner tweeted.

He couldn't be more right. It truly is common sense that Thomas isn't the "rightful winner" of the NCAA championship. He's a man competing against women, and no amount of hormone therapy can change the biological advantage he has over female swimmers. University of Virginia swimmer Emma Weyant has been recognized by many people are the true first-place winner, but even though she's being praised online that doesn't change anything about the results of the race. Anyone who supports Thomas' participation in collegiate women's swimming is supporting the theft of women's records and medals. Hopefully more celebrities like Jenner are willing to speak up about this injustice.
