U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville denounced allowing transgender males to compete as females and taking scholarships and trophies from biological females.  

"I've had a front-row seat to how beneficial Title IX has been for women's sports," said Tuberville, a career football coach. "Its enactment, a few years before I entered coaching women's basketball, was the absolute best thing to happen to women's athletics. The opportunities secured by Title IX ensured that young girls growing up had the benefits of team sports at their fingertips, and because of this law, we have seen women's sports soar in popularity over the last 50 years.

"Title IX is about a fair shot – about giving women the long-denied platform that had always been afforded to men," Tuberville continued. "But there are inherent biological differences between men and women. To allow biological males to compete against female athletes will sideline many young women in competition and discourage even more from participating in the first place."

Tuberville referenced a Fox News article about a Penn swimmer, Lia Thomas, who was born a male and has an X and Y chromosome like every other biological male, but competes as a woman because he/she claims to identify with the female gender. 

Two Penn swimmers have come forward to speak out about the situation.

The female swimmers' interview with Outkick was kept anonymous due to threats from the university, activists, and the political climate. The female swimmers want people to know that Penn swimmers are "angry" over the lack of fairness in the sport.

Thomas is setting new records for a female swimmer. None of his/her times would be records if he/she competed with other individuals with a Y chromosome.

At the University of Akron Zippy Invitational, Thomas beat fellow teammate Anna Kalandadze by 38 seconds in the 1650-meter freestyle. OutKick's source described Penn swimmers on the Akron pool deck as upset and crying, knowing Thomas would demolish them.

"They feel so discouraged because no matter how much work they put in it, they're going to lose," the anonymous Penn female swimmer said. "Usually, they can get behind the blocks and know they out-trained all their competitors and they're going to win and give it all they've got.

"Now they're having to go behind the blocks knowing no matter what, they do not have the chance to win. I think that it's really getting to everyone."

Thomas is setting Penn freestyle records as a "woman." When he/she competed as a male he/she was just second-team All-Ivy league in 2018-19.

Thomas set a new 500-meter freestyle Ivy League record. "His/her" time in the 200-meter freestyle is now the nation's fastest time in the event.

OutKick's source claimed that after the 200-meter freestyle, Thomas could be overheard bragging.

"That was so easy, I was cruising," Thomas allegedly said." I'm still No. 1 in the country."

"Well, obviously she's No. 1 in the country because she's at a clear physical advantage after having gone through male puberty and getting to train with testosterone for years," OutKick's source said. "Of course, you're No. 1 in the country when you're beating a bunch of females. That's not something to brag about."

This "gender fluidity" is being pushed by the LGBTQ lobby.

Tuberville spent decades coaching college athletics and is serving in his first term in the U.S. Senate.
