From the Daily Mail:

Trans UPenn swimmer Lia Thomas is CRUSHED twice in Ivy League women’s swim meet by Yale competitor Iszac Henig, who is transitioning from female to male

After the race, the 20-year-old who has had his breasts removed, pulled down the top of his swimsuit

A stunned parent told DailyMail.com: ‘I wasn’t prepared for that. Everything is messed up. I can’t wrap my head around this. The NCAA needs to do something’

UPenn’s swim meet on Saturday against Dartmouth and Yale is the Penn team’s first since December when Lia Thomas blew away the competition

She shattered two national women’s records last month at the Zippy International in Akron, Ohio

I look forward to comments explaining how this is all part of The Plan, a development that They foresaw all along.

If you are confused, iSteve commenter Anon7 clears it all up:

They’re like two ships that pass in the night, and one of the ships is a monohull ship being refitted as an outrigger canoe and the other is a catamaran being refitted as a monohull.

Look, I’m trying to understand this, okay?

  1. WAIT
    they allowed HIM, the biological woman, pumped with Testosterone, but legally a MAN,

    to swim against poor HER, the biological male, with lowered Testosterone?

    The world is getting very complex, and unjust in multiple ways!

    Why is a male allowed to swim against a female? Is HIS testosterone level not too high?

    Supposedly the FTM (biological female) who beat Thomas had not started testosterone which is why s/he could compete on a woman’s team. It seems unlikely that a non-testosteroned woman could beat a man unless the woman was very top level or Thomas is taking more female hormones or something. What a mess

    FTM have a weird obsession with that going on about being . I suspect that the ones like this are doing it because of a pathological fear of sex. (At least sex as a woman) She is so proud and happy not to have breasts and not be sexually attractive to men. The crazy attention-seeking and exhibitionism sounds like BPD to me, as does the heightened risk for sexual assault.

    All the mainstream American psychology orgs have all endorsed this insane self-harm as a maladaptive coping mechanism. As have lots of medical orgs like the APA.

    There is clearly a phenotype here.

    Hennig (supposedly) had not begun male hormone therapy. Hennig had female lung size, heart size, wingspan, foot and hand size. So, she was a female …except for the breast surgery. Elite female swimmers tend to be not very booby; if they are to start with, they will have reductive mammoplasty. I guess Hennig’s surgery made her still less booby than that. I guess that extra bit of streamlining made the difference. Subtle streamlining matters in swimming, physically and psychologically. We used to shave our legs for the New England (men’s) championships. Swimmers who advanced to the nationals swam practice that week wearing panty hose, so when the nylons came off for nationals, they would feel streamlined.

  12. I would almost think this was an Onion article, especially because it says the “Zippy International” in Akron,Ohio. Then I remembered the Akron U mascot is a kangaroo named Zippy. As a kid we took swimming lessons in the nude. Trying to fugure out how that would work now.

  13. JimDandy says:
    @Discordiax

    Yeah, I agree. Remember the biological female high school wrestler who “transitioned” to “male” but was not allowed to wrestle boys, so she wrestled girls and destroyed them all because she was taking T? And some people booed when sztheyzr won State, and the MSM narrative was all about how hateful America is?

    I actually feel happy when I read these headlines now. Mandating equal emphasis on female sports was moronic and unnatural from the get-go. (Girl wrestling shouldn’t even be a high school sport.) This current clownery is the inevitable outcome of progressive bullshit. Anyone who disagrees with me is wrong, so save it.

    A lot of trans men are surely better soccer players than Meghan Rapinoe. So why the highly paid US women’s soccer team is not yet attracting transgenders from all directions remains a mystery. It seems like simple market forces + trans momentum should cause transgenders to be part of US women’s soccer any day now.

    BACKGROUND

    For anyone curious about how stupid this is, the total number of trannys in America keeps going up because they keep changing the tabulation parameters.

    Some years back it was statistically negligible at .2 or .03 percent.

    Then the CDC (creators of COVID) doubled it to .6 — still a small number for all the noise.

    https://williamsinstitute.law.ucla.edu/publications/trans-adults-united-states/

    This report utilizes data from the CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) to estimate the percentage and number of adults who identify as transgender nationally and in all 50 states.3 We find that 0.6% of U.S. adults identify as transgender

    It’s the one sport that I wouldn’t mind this silliness taken to its ultimate end. The US Women’s soccer team is the only US team I’ve ever rooted against. Unfortunately, Rapinoe is old, so it won’t effect her. Because of that, I’d guess she’d support it enthusiastically.

    OT: Prime iSteve content has been generated in the NBA.

    A white commentator for a game made the comment: “Kevin Porter Jr., like his dad, pulled that trigger right at the right time”

    Turns out Kevin Porter Sr. was convicted for the first-degree manslaughter of a 14 year old girl in 1994 which I assume given his son’s age was a peer of his and he was also roughly 14 at the time. He was later himself fatally shot in the midst of a bar fight in 2004 when his son was 4. Incredibly both these events didn’t take place in say Baltimore but in Seattle.

    The commentator has said that he thought that Kevin Porter Jr. was actually the son of former NBA player Kevin Porter. This isn’t unreasonable since the accurate stereotype that particularly as time goes on, many athletes are sons of former athletes and black ones often have ‘Jr.’ appellations.

    It’s also not unreasonable that the commentator wouldn’t have known Porter Jr.’s father shot a girl to death as the media tended to omit that fact in any pieces on him and his father, for example.

    https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/high-school/kevin-porter-jr-living-up-to-his-fathers-legacy-at-rainier-beach/

    No mention of any of his father’s stints in jail or his conviction for manslaughter of a 14 year old girl. But his death in the bar fight is depicted heroically as if he was a bystander on the street witnessing a guy getting beaten and going out of his way to intervene.

    According to Ayanna, her husband was trying to help a person getting beat up and was instead shot five times.

    But anyway an incredible example of stereotypes that somebody could accidentally reference a player’s father shooting somebody like that.

    In the NFL two sons of a Nigerian immigrant who went on a mass shooting at his law school were drafted with the younger one inducted in the 2021 draft.

    Alastair Reynolds writes in Diamond Dogs:

    ‘Promise me,’ Celestine said.

    ‘What?’

    ‘That whatever happens when we get home – whatever’s become of the city – you won’t go back to the Spire.’

    ‘I won’t go back,’ I said. ‘And I promise you that. I can even have the memory of it suppressed, so it doesn’t haunt my dreams.’

    ‘Why not,’ she said. ‘You’ve done it before, after all.’

    But when we returned to Chasm City we found that Childe had not been lying. Things had changed, but not for the better. The thing that they called the Melding Plague had plunged our city back into a festering, technologically-decadent dark age. The wealth we had accrued on Childe’s expedition meant nothing now, and what small influence my family had possessed before the crisis had diminished even further.

    In better days, Trintignant’s work could probably have been undone. It would not have been simple, but there were those who relished such a challenge, and I would probably have had to fight off several competing offers: rival cyberneticists vying for the prestige of tackling such a difficult project. Things were different. Even the crudest kinds of surgery were now difficult or impossibly expensive. Only a handful of specialists retained the means to even attempt such work, and they were free to charge whatever they liked.

    There were those who saw us and imagined that the creature with her – the thing that trotted by her like a stiff, diamond-skinned, grotesque mechanical dog – was merely a strange choice of pet. Sometimes they sensed something unusual in our relationship – the way she might whisper an aside to me, or the way I might appear to be leading her – and they would look at me, intently, before I stared into their eyes with the blinding red scrutiny of my vision.

    Then they would always look away.

    And for a long time – until the dreams became too much – that was how it was.

    Yet now I pad into the night, Celestine unaware that I have left our apartment.

    Outside, dangerous gangs infiltrate the shadowed, half-flooded streets. They call this part of Chasm City the Mulch and it is the only place where we can afford to live now. Certainly we could have afforded something better – something much better – if I had not been forced to put aside money in readiness for this day. But Celestine knows nothing of that.

    The Mulch is not as bad as it used to be, but it would still have struck the earlier me as a vile place in which to exist. Even now I am instinctively wary, my enhanced eyes dwelling on the various crudely fashioned blades and crossbows that the gangs flaunt. Not all of the creatures who haunt the night are technically human. There are things with gills that can barely breathe in open air. There are other things that resemble pigs, and they are the worst of all.

    But I do not fear them.

    I slink between shadows, my thin, doglike form confusing them. I squeeze through the gaps in collapsed buildings, effortlessly escaping the few who are foolish enough to chase me. Now and then I even stop and confront them, standing with my back arched.

    My red gaze stabs through them.

    I continue on my way.

    Agreed. I can’t get myself worked up over this since as you point out, multiple men’s sports (wrestling, gymnastics, track and field) that might grant a student a scholarship to cover some of his costs for college were closed to allow budget to be shifted to women’s sports under Title IX.

And if not then why not? Shouldn’t anyone who identifies as a man be forced to compete as a man, if they want to compete at all?

    If which sex you compete as part of doesn’t matter then the number of “trans men” competing as men should be roughly equal to the number of “trans women” competing as women. But from all I’ve heard the athletic gender switchers are 100% male to female.

    We have an obesity crisis that gets worse with each generation. College athletics is perhaps a different story, but anything that discourages participation in youth athletics among either sex is a bad thing. Granted, maybe the solution is for schools to emphasize physical fitness more than organized sports.

    Next time you’re at an event for a local high school, look around: many teen girls have the bodies of bedraggled 45 year old housewives, and the situation among boys is almost as bad. Most kids cannot even slowly jog a mile or do proper push-ups.

  71. @Intelligent Dasein

    if it causes all the normal girls out there to take a look and say, “You know, maybe this whole female athletics thing isn’t for me.”

    by and large, girls already say that. Just getting on the high school team is heavily contested for guys, but every girl who will show up gets in. Hundreds, even thousands of guys are competing for each spot on men’s college teams. Women’s, maybe a dozen. Sports are a lot of work, and if your folks aren’t making you do it, meh. Why bother.

    And to think the scandal in 2014 was leaked photos of Hope Solo’s private parts. Guess there won’t be an big market for leaked nude pics if the tranny trend continues.

    All cluster B personality disorders have a clear core pathology: catastrophic self-hatred.

    Trannies are TRANscendentally NarcIssistic, which means they despise themselves to an unimaginable degree, and think that nothing is real, everything is permitted socially constructed. They think they can socially manipulate Reality into thinking they’re not themselves, at which point they won’t have to hate themselves anymore.

    Normally this is caused by parents failing to love their children. If even your mother doesn’t love you, could you possibly be lovable? It simply isn’t rational.

    Public school is a nice backup system, designed to cause clinical levels of narcissism via gaslighting and so on. (Unlike school, Reality scores up from 0, not down from 100.) This is why so many schoolgirls are susceptible to catching tranny hysteria. System working as intended.
    This intent is documented, by the way. Read Fichte and Dewey. They just tell you, straight-up in Fichte’s case, almost straight-up in Dewey’s.

    I don’t think so, at least not heterosexual polygamy involving one man in charge of multiple females ( however this is OK if the man is black or Muslim). There’s no way they would accept white men benefitting from such an arrangement. Fundamentalist Mormons who do this are regarded as weirdos who probably should be locked up and those poor women are deluded by religious fanaticism.

    Harvard. Penn. That just makes it better.

    AND “Ivy” league swimming is just a way for bootlickers to game the admission process. So there’s that ironic note too.

    They only looked silly because you were not used to it. But everyone used to dress like that, and not that long ago either. What we are witnessing out there in lefty land is democracy in its death throes, a return to paganism only without any of paganism’s good points.

    I’m astounded how many mentally ill people walk among us every single day.

    And hey, how about our “leaders”?

    What’s even crazier is that their mental illness is celebrated and considered normal.

    There’s certainly a connection between the evident broad popularity of pedophilia among the elites and the way their system has been using Covidianism to systematically warp, torture and destroy the developing minds and souls of an entire generation of children.

    And now the system’s #1 policy priority is to inflict the experimental gene-altering injections upon all children when they’re at their most physically vulnerable developmental stages. The assault upon children of the transgenderist cult turned out to be a middle stage toward this attempted universal physical mutilation of children.

    But the main mystery is why parents have turned out to have such total hatred and loathing toward their own children, that such a large majority have been so ready to subject their children to this level of psychological and physical violence.

    One thing’s for sure: Almost all inhabitants of “Western civilization”, and most of all the most “civilized”, the most “cultured”, the most “educated”, have lost all Darwinian adaptive capacity and are capable of nothing but the most extreme maladaptive behavior. Modern decadence has reached its ultimate terminal extreme.

    Why doesn’t the bitch do something herself by taking her child out of that “college”, stop watching/supporting the NCAA, and tell them why she has done so? Same comment for the father.

    It’s believable that the FtM transexual hasn’t dabbled with hormones yet. Still has feminized hips and thighs, no facial hair (and no NuMale would be able to restrain xerself from growing a junior high stache), and light musculature for a female competitive swimmer.

    A lot of trans men are surely better soccer players than Meghan Rapinoe.

    I doubt it. For the most part soccer playing men strike me as unlikely to become trans. We don’t see many trans men playing softball either, do we? Men who play team sports well generally enjoy being men.

  93. @The Anti-Gnostic

    All fully true, IMHO.

    The thing is, Rome went on like this for hundreds of years. I really don’t think that’s the smart-money bet for America, but who knows?
