- Lia Thomas became the first transgender national champion after winning the 500-yard freestyle
- Feminists are upset that the Democrat party is supporting this
Trans swimmer Lia Thomas became the first transgender national champion.
Lia won the 500-year freestyle race.
Lia Thomas is a national champion.
Thomas, who is a transgender woman, touched the wall in 4 minutes, 33.24 seconds in the 500-yard freestyle on Thursday night to become the first known transgender athlete to win a Division I national championship in any sport.
Feminists aren’t happy that Democrats are supporting this and are now turning on them.
A group of feminists protesting outside the women’s NCAA swimming championships told Fox News they have “walked away” from the Democratic Party and believe many others have as well.
“I was historically liberal. I would say I’m politically homeless now because I don’t think the Democrats care about women and girls,” one activist with the group Save Women’s Sports told Fox News.
The women’s advocacy group has been outside Georgia Tech’s athletic center protesting transgender swimmer Lia Thomas competing in the NCAA women’s swimming and diving championships since Wednesday.
“Feminism has become so muddied, much like the term Democrat has become so muddied. It’s practically lost all meaning,” Amy E. Sousa, one of the leaders of the group and a self-described “radical feminist,” told Fox News.
“I am a lifelong registered Democrat who ultimately feels politically homeless,” Sousa added. “With the whole Biden election, I began to feel more and more disenfranchised from Democrats as a party, and I began to feel more and more that they did not represent my beliefs or my views.”
