Reading Riley Gaines’ statement today on her unavoidable encounter with Thomas’s penis at the NCAA swim meet, I was wondering why he wasn’t prosecuted for sexual harassment for his actions at Penn. I mean, at least for the next 10 minutes or so, sexual harassment is still defined as being unwanted sexual advances in a place where such advances are not expected to be found. Say a male penis in a women’s locker room.

I don’t recall who the two women were that submitted complaints on behalf on the Penn team, but they are well known for their work and advocacy. I remember reading their submission, which took into account why they had standing on the swimmer’s behalf. It covered Thomas’s indecent exposure in the locker room, and I recall it being submitted to the administration, athletic director, Penn IX officer, and the DA of Philadelphia.

Of course, I don’t expect msm coverage, but they were women I’d expect to hear from - maybe Kara Dansky and the person from Saving Women’s Sports…. Anyone have an update?

I love that Riley is finding her voice and using clear, direct speech. Never have i been so pleased to read the word penis.

ARCHIVE TITLE: I'm an NCAA champion female swimmer and we have to protect girls, women from Biden's destruction of Title IX Biden would destroy Title IX and opportunities it gives female athletes to be treated as equals.

As one of the top swimmers in the county, I know achievement does not happen by accident. It takes work, dedication, perseverance and time. I learned this as a little girl, waking up at 4:30 a.m. to go to swim practice and then returning to the pool that afternoon to pursue my goals. I learned it as a college student who finished my career as a 12-time NCAA All-American, five-time SEC Champion and record holder, and two-time Olympic trial qualifier. Despite this, it was not until the last competition of my collegiate career that I realized how much I had taken for granted the achievements of Title IX.

Fifty years ago, pioneering women and men fought for Title IX’s passage. They knew their efforts would pay off by giving girls and women like me the opportunity to have our own sports category protected under federal law. The results have been profound. An entire youth sports ecosystem for girls has blossomed, giving countless females the same chance to develop skills critical to achieving equality in the workplace with their male counterparts. A recent Ernst & Young study found that fully 94% of female business executives participated in sports as girls — making sports participation the most straightforward path to business success as an adult.

Recently, the woke left has pushed a radical agenda embraced by President Joe Biden that threatens to undermine the entirety of Title IX by allowing males to steal the opportunities reserved for women. For me, this is not a theoretical issue, it is one that was forced in my face at the NCAA Championships. And I mean that literally.

Under Title IX, women are entitled to their own locker rooms so that we can be vulnerable and change in private. Yet at the NCAA Championships, I saw a 6’4" biological male exposing male parts in our women’s locker room. To be perfectly clear, the anatomy I and many other women were forced to view, confirms Thomas is a male. I asked the officials where I should change as I had no intention of undressing in front of a man. They informed me that there were no protections in place for me to change in a space that Thomas did not have access to. To summarize, the NCAA put the onus on the female to avoid undressing in front of a biological man with male biological parts who is sexually attracted to women. Let that sink in.

So, after having the privacy of my locker room taken away from me, I went to my marquee event, the 200-meter freestyle. Considered the most competitive event in swimming, I wanted to showcase my years of work and sacrifice in my final NCAA Championships.

Physiological development as a biological male yields tremendous advantages over biological women in athletic competition. On average, men have over a 10% advantage across the board on strength, agility, and stamina versus women in the same category. The male body is developed from the womb to be the physically stronger and more athletic of the two sexes …yes, there are only two.

To put real numbers on the female-male deficit in my race, 10% of the 102 seconds it takes to swim the race is 10 seconds which, not coincidentally, is exactly the difference between the men’s and women’s world records in the event.

So, with effectively a 10-second biological deficit, I tied Thomas to the hundredth of a second, which is relatively rare. Given this, you would think that the NCAA would recognize this incredible accomplishment and at least equally reward us for tying. Yet instead, they gave Thomas the trophy that day for "photo purposes" and assured me that mine would eventually come in the mail. The University of Pennsylvania and the NCAA then subsequently nominated Thomas for NCAA Woman of the Year, the highest accolade for females in all of college athletics.

I’m not looking for sympathy with this story, I’m looking for action. President Joe Biden has proposed unlawful rule changes to Title IX replacing "sex" with "gender" and ‘gender identity’. This is regressive and will strip away women’s spaces, safety, and opportunities — including legally allowing men who identify as women to participate in and destroy the integrity of women’s sports as Lia Thomas and numerous other male athletes have done. Enough is enough.

It’s time to take back Title IX and stand up and protect our girls and women. I was gifted Title IX by those who came before me, and I will fight relentlessly to give it to the young girls who have dreams to win at an elite level like I once did.

This is a fantastic statement.

'A recent Ernst & Young study found that fully 94% of female business executives participated in sports as girls — making sports participation the most straightforward path to business success as an adult.' I had no idea. (I did participate in team sports as a kid, but unwillingly and not for very long.)

Thank you for sharing this. It was moving.

I am so scared for the future, this is only the beginning. Liar Thomas is a disgusting pig, exposing himself like that. If he was really a woman, he'd know how upsetting and scary that could be to the vast majority of women, and he'd go to the men's or gender neutral locker room that I'm fucking sure these woke assholes ensure is available

This is so enraging

this is from my own experience and not specific to the case.

but, because nobody gives a shit about men doing sexually inappropriate shit to women. especially if the consequences might inconvenience the man.

i've been told by a female police officer not to press charges because it was unfair on the rapist to face 16 years in prison

[–] furyosa no, thank you 21 points

Holy shit! I'm sorry that happened to you, both the initial crime and the officer's reaction to it. What that officer said was appalling. This society is hell for women and girls.

thank you. if i'd had the confidence and anger i do now i'd have complained. it was over 15 years ago now and i'm actually more upset today about the police officers response than the actual crime.

its not the only time i've attempted and failed to get justice and my conclusion is the police just don't care about crimes against women.

The NCAA should be sued for actively encouraging and promoting a policy of sexual harassment as well. I can’t think of a more blatant example than them allowing a nude male in a womens’ locker room, making them suffer embarrassment and humiliation.

Them and Penn State but with this gender identity non-sense allowing Thomas to be legally recognised as a woman it won't happen. If it was a man not claiming such an identity, then it would be an issue.

How can this be allowed? Just claiming you are a woman and accessing their spaces whilst taking their trophies?

It has been pointed out to me it is not Penn State but University of Pennsylavania. Thank you, sister for the correction!

I think the correct charge in a criminal setting would be one of some sort of indecent exposure. However, since he is legally recognised (I believe he legally changed his gender) as a woman, this would not stand since being naked in a changing room is expected and normal behaviour.

If he did not legally change his gender, I think most prosecutors would be reluctant to prefer any charges since he's been "living" and "competing" as a woman for quite some time.

The university is highly unlikely to do anything internally due to their own inclusive policies regarding gender.

Sexual harassment would be almost impossible to prove in this context. Of course swimmers change and shower in a changing room. He's really working this from all angles to his advantage and within the law.

That's just my take on it.

That’s why this GID thing must not only be stopped cold, but driven back. It’s a lie that undoes the law and allows fraud to flourish. We will not have a fair and just society worth living in if this psychotic ideology is not defeated.

It is indecent exposure (unless as you said the legal falsification of his sex absolves him) but indecent exposure is sexual harassment. Indeed though legally speaking you can't have both.

BUT, the criterion most commonly associated with harassment is repetition. I do wonder if in this case Thomas has sought a way to quite literally trap vulnerable females who did not want to be naked in his presence and were forced to lest they would lose their championship opportunity. He also chose to walk around naked. He didn't have to.

I think we should be able to make this case and uPenn should be held complicit. Because while he may be legally female he is physically male. And anyways even a woman who behaved in a creepy way that made others uncomfortable could be accused of sexual harassment. Might need to go all the way to the supreme Court but I can't imagine if they were being honest they could absolve him.

Yes, he does not need to walk around naked in the changing room but from what I understand this is a very male thing to do, which tracks since Lia is a man.

Just having a testosterone level below a certain level to be considered female is not enough--in the real world, nothing should be. But if they insist on this, the government should make them have bottom surgery to ID as women. I have a feeling the number of men IDing as women would drop dramatically if they had to give up their girl dick.

But I thought fucking everything made them dysphoric, funny how their cock n balls doesn't do that at ALL

He's a disgusting pig. Watch him transition back to male in the next 20 years, I'll put fucking money on it

Thanks everyone for your comments. What I’m surprised about, and I genuinely am even given the shit show we’re living through, is that there was no follow-up to the complaints that were actually submitted to bodies that have to act on them. In reading through what Title IX currently says, in prep for writing my comments on the proposal changes, it was absolutely clear that Thomas met the condition of sexual harassment. It was unwanted, they had a reasonable expectation of privacy (soon to be gone…), and it was reported to the IX officer for Penn. So what happened??? The terrific women who did the work and submitted the complaint - why haven’t we heard from them. It’s odd, and they are well-known warriors in this fight who are savvy about getting the word out.

The same for the Philly DA. Of course the DA must have elected not to pursue anything against Thomas, but I’m surprised the women who contacted the DA didn’t publicly communicate what happened afterwards. When I read their submissions several months ago I was excited because I thought, “ok they have to act.” I knew the action would be “nothing to see here, looks like it’s all in order”, but I wanted to hear their public rejection of women’s rights to be protected under statute said out loud and told to the world. Just odd.

Not sure if Riley still has standing under Title IX but it sure would be great for someone eligible to advance a complaint against Thomas under the existing rules, before they’re changed. Obviously, as the above makes clear, nobody in power cares about women, but technically Title IX extended women the expectation of privacy and required women-only locker rooms. A current complaint would give a concrete example of what is being taken away under the new rules and highlight that women will have no right in the future to even object to naked males in their spaces.

And and and, it makes me enraged to think how much The Liar got sexually excited about dominating women both in the pool and during his “you can’t do anything about my swinging dick” walk around. A truly vile human being.

What are the odds that this bloke has gone back to his manly self since its unlikely he'll now be able to cheat his way into the Olympics?
