Maybe America isn’t losing its collective mind after all. Former Penn U. swimmer and transgender male Will “Lia” Thomas has been eliminated in the NCAA Woman of the Year competition. A real, bona fide, chromosome-certified woman named Sylvie Binder has been name the Ivy League’s representative in the continuing competition. 

Fox News reported that Binder will represent the Ivy League, as the NCAA gradually narrows down the original list of 577 nominees. The Columbia University fencer was an NCAA foil champion in 2019. This past season, she (emphasis on “she”) took fifth place at The Ivy League championships, second at the Northeast Regional and third in the NCAA Championships, finishing the season with a record of 17-6. Additionally, Binder won the 2022 Women’s Connie S. Maniatty Award winner as Columbia’s top senior student-athlete. 

Thomas sparked national outrage for being allowed to compete on the Penn women’s swimming team this past season after he previously spent three incredibly lackluster years on the men’s swimming team. An NPR/Ipsos poll showed that 63 percent of Americans opposed the allowance of men performing on women’s athletic teams. The anger flared up again when Thomas was recently nominated by Penn for the NCAA Woman of the Year honor.  

Despite nationwide opposition, Thomas unfairly claimed numerous conference and national championships by using his superior size and strength to overwhelm female competitors throughout a controversy-marred season. He won the women’s national title in the 500-yard freestyle finals. 

Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston wrote: “Thomas’ performance shocked college sports and brought the ire of teammates, 16 of whom joined in an anonymous letter to complain about the ‘unfair advantage over competition in the women’s category’ that Thomas represented.” 

Among the remarks in that public letter was the statement that “Biologically, Lia holds an unfair advantage over competition in the women’s category, as evidenced by her rankings that have bounced from #462 as a male to #1 as a female.” 

More recently, a former Thomas teammate told the Washington Examiner’s Christopher Tremoglie that Thomas is “mentally ill.” (The same could be said for Penn, the Ivy League and the NCAA). This came after Thomas tried, in a Good Morning America interview, to justify his undeserved place in women’s collegiate swimming.

Among Thomas’s fans, Athlete Ally labeled the Thomas nomination “well-deserved.” Trans MMA fighter Fallon Fox tweeted of Thomas’s nomination, “Much deserved for her athletic achievements and influential leadership as a woman who happens to be trans.” One can only wonder what type of woman would consider Thomas an influential female leader. 

NCAA Woman of the Year award nominees must be graduating female student-athletes “who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership.” 

Thomas can check the graduating senior box, but little else of the remaining criteria. If farce and dishonesty were part of the criteria, he would win the award, manly hands down.  

After taking the 2021-2022 women’s season to outrageous LGBT-pleasing extremes, Thomas finally earned some comeuppance overdue with this NCAA elimination. 

It would not have been at all surprising if the woke, LGBT-friendly Ivy League had selected Thomas as its conference representative in the Woman of the Year competition. Fortunately, the issue is now dead in the water.
