Michael Phelps: NCAA's Lia Thomas Controversy
'Very Complicated'

Original Article

Posted By: Black Conservative Voice, 1/18/2022 4:40:54 AM

Michael Phelps says the controversy surrounding transgender NCAA swimmer Lia Thomas is “very complicated.” Thomas, a transgender swimmer on the women’s team at the University of Pennsylvania, competed for three years as a male. NCAA bylaws permit transgender athletes to compete as women if they have undergone testosterone suppression for a year. Phelps, appearing with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour last week, spoke to the issue as one of doping, saying he doesn’t believe he’s competed in a fair field in his whole career.


It’s not complicated. Be who you want to be but you give up the right to participate in sports against biological women. Just like we have Special Olympics and Paralympics for those that are differently abled. Because making them compete against average-abled people would be unfair.

Thomas should not be allowed on the women's team. it’s disgraceful and unfair. he competed as a man for 3 years. that alone should disqualify him on the women's team.

It's *very* easy. Only com.coated if you are a Marxist or a sheep or you smoke too much weed. Men/boys/males should compete with other men/boys/males. Women/girls/females should complete with other women/girls/females. So called trans, aka mentally ill, when on leave from the mental ward should compete with their sex. Not their "self identity gender". Their from birth XX or XY chromosome sex. For the stunningly rare non XX/XY chromosome people who also happen to be competitive athletes they should compete with the sex they are most physically similar to. Not hard at all.

Please, Michael, leave the nuance to John F-ing Kerry. He probably has more medals than you, too.

No, it's quite simple. Innie = female. Outtie = male. Corollary: lopped-off outtie = still male.

Twit. Phelps is thinking with his balls - which come to think of he was naturally born with - but seems to have left in a 'lockbox'. He is cowardly avoiding the real issue. NO one has the right to 'dope' and then compete.

Not complicated. He is a man no matter what he calls himself. He has a man's body, a man's body mass, a man's muscle structure no matter what he thinks he is. Unless his DNA comes up female he's out of luck. Lipstick and breast implants do not make you a woman. He can play pretend all he wants but do not ask me to play along. This is wrong and way too many people are weenies for not calling these people out.

The Elite to the Deplorables, the issue is too complicated. Just accept what we say and move on. FBI corruption too complicated. Pass the bill to determine what is in in. Gender is too complicated, there are 57+ genders. Raising children is too complicated for the Deplorables. Jan. 6 was an insurrection, accept this and keep people in jail without trials. The Russian conspiracy by the Democrats is too complicated. The Afghanistan surrender, too complicated. The CCP virus is too complicated. Government is too complicated, we need to spend more money. Terrorism by Muslims is too complicated. Only the government must have guns, they are too complicated. The climate is too complicated, we must change it.

Not complicated at all. Everyone above is correct, and Phelps is a certified dummy. Men who compete against women in speed and strength sports are cheaters, pure and simple. They should be ostracized by both men and women.

I'll even refer to you by your chosen ronoun, once I know what it is. Stay out of opposite gender bathrooms, and no, you may not compete in any sport against the opposite gender. Period.

Here's a solution. Create a 3rd category for Transies. Let them compete with each other. I'm pretty sure there's be no interest because they'd have to compete with others like them and therefore couldn't be guaranteed to win.

Somewhere there is a Dolphin that identifies as a human, who really wants to compete in every NCAA swim meet. It is pretty sure it can set new records, create a lot of new interest in the sport and most of all create an even playing field for all. Seriously, that idea makes as much sense as pretending a man is a woman because he says so and a lot of adults are afraid to call him out.

Re #22: On South Park Kyle's father identified as a dolphin and, I believe, had a dorsal fin implanted and went about making clicking dolphin noises. Phelps, even with 23 gold medals, doesn't want to offend Twitter, Zuckerberg, the corporate media, the Democratic (sic) Party, or undermine the Narrative by saying anything out of town, such as that no one can change his (her) sex. All brawn and no brains make Mike a dull boy. Hey Mike. Chromosomes are either XY or XX and associated with one sex or the other. Gender refers to pronouns and is not synonymous with sex. Grow a spine. (That's an anagram of "Spiro Agnew"; there's another anagram in there if you interchange the letters of "spine.")

No, it isn’t. He’s a man. If he wants to play at being a female he must skip trying to compete with female swimmers. Simple. He trades one desire for another. Phelps is a wuss. This is not the same as doping, though both should be banned.

Time for the real games to begin. Open competition, may the fastest swimmer, runner, or whatever win. Time for the world to get to the nub. If "equality" means that, open competition is the only way to go. In the meantime, women and whatevers are "breaking glass ceilings" left and right. They're police officers, firefighters, fighter pilots, astronauts, and even special forces, captains of aircraft carriers and Vice President of the United States. Heroes of all sorts to be celebrated. Men? They're just so yesterday. The days of "separate and unequal" need to end. May the best athlete win!

If people want to insist that being a "man" or a "woman" is all in one's head, let them. Stop designating teams as "men's" and "women's." Just call them the XY team and the XX team. Genetic testing required to compete as one or the other. Problem solve!

President Joe Biden will hold a rare solo press conference on Wednesday evening, the day before his one-year annivesary in office, where he is expected to defend his tenure in the White House and preview his plans for the next three years. He will also likely face questions on the issues of the day - voting rights, his Build Back Better bill, his declining approval rating, Russia and the Ukraine, inflation and the Omicron variant of COVID. His last solo press conference in the White House was in March and his last formal press conference was in October, when he was in Glasgow, Scotland for COP26.

They say it's unwise to let teenage drivers be responsible for rigs that can weigh 80,000 pounds
