Actual Woman Wins NCAA’s Woman Of The Year Award Over Transgender Swimmer Lia Thomas
Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas finally lost a race to a woman--this time losing out on her opportunity to take away the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Woman of the Year award from an actual woman.
Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas finally lost a race to a woman–this time losing out on her opportunity to take away the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Woman of the Year award from an actual woman.
Thomas made headlines when it was announced he was nominated by the NCAA for their Woman of the Year award, in a move which brought into question the NCAA’s lack of commitment to women.
While organizations like the NCAA claim to promote gender equity, they fail to protect women by allowing men like Thomas to use inherent advantages to take opportunities from women. In a twist that no one saw coming 50 years ago, Title IX is now being used to protect men who identify as women instead of biological women.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem spoke out on the issue recently of Thomas being nominated for the award, telling Newsmax TV’s Chris Salcedo the issue is unfair, and what’s being embraced is extreme.
After Thomas began identifying as a woman during his junior year, his performance improved significantly. He went from 554 in the 200 freestyle, 65 in the 500 freestyle, and 32 in the 1650 freestyle competing with other men, to being ranked 5 in the 200 freestyle, first in the 500 freestyle, and eighth in the 1650 freestyle while competing with women.
He went on to become a Division 1 national champion by winning the 500-yard freestyle in dominating fashion against women.

The NCAA’s Woman of the Year award recognizes female student-athletes who have exhausted their eligibility and distinguished themselves in their community, in athletics and in academics throughout their college careers. Thomas was one of 577 nominees selected from the approximately 223,000 female collegiate athletes nationwide.
Thankfully, the award went to Columbia University fencer Sylvie Binder, a biological woman.
Binder was the NCAA Women’s Foil Champion in 2019. This year she placed fifth at The Ivy League championships, she placed second at the Northeast Regional, and third at the NCAA Championships with an overall record of 17-6.
She was also named the 2022 Women’s Connie S. Maniatty Award winner.
There is an alarming trend in society of men with gender dysphoria boldly stealing opportunities from women—awards, scholarships, and various other opportunities. The very same liberals who once defended women’s rights now defend the men impeding on their rights.
Being transgender now provides you with inherent social protections from the woke mob which supersede the rights of women. If you point out the obvious, you’re labeled a bigot and a transphobe. That’s how they attempt to silence the truth, and it’s also why we must speak out against the insanity.
Do you believe the NCAA should allow biological men to be considered for women’s awards?
