Pipe Down, Ladies, and Know Your Place: Female Cyclists Warned Not to Complain About Men Competing in Their Sport


British Cycling, the end-all, be-all institution of competitive cycling in England, has thrown down the gauntlet to female cyclists: Shut up and allow men to take your spot on the team or face punishment.

It is now considered “hate” for female athletes to stand up for their rights.

The threat comes just as a trans dude with a history of racing other men and winning has decided he is now a she and wants to try to take opportunities from women cyclists. If he scores high enough, real women will be dropped from the team to make room for him.

British Cycling will not tolerate real women speaking out against their insane rules, and the organization let its female cyclists know they mean business.

British Cycling members are able to report any concern. If British Cycling are notified of an individual who is taking advantage of the inclusive nature of this policy, or an individual who has been subject to any conduct which is in breach of the Code of Conduct due to their Gender Identity, the matter shall be considered under the British Cycling Disciplinary Regulations.

Speaking of the rules, here they are:

  • Welcome all Transgender and Non-Binary Participants, just as you would any other Participant;
  • Treat all Transgender and Non-Binary Participants with dignity and respect, just as you would any other Participant;
  • Respect the private and confidential nature of all Transgender and Non-Binary Participants’ situations and information;
  • Accept all Participants in the gender they present; verification of their identity should be no more than expected of any other person;
  • Report any incidents of inappropriate or offensive behaviour and language to the British Cycling Integrity and Compliance Department;
  • Avoid making assumptions about the Participant, ask their name and take your lead from the information they may, or may not, offer you;
  • Be clear about what language you use, all Participants should be referred to as the gender that they inform you they are;
  • If asked, refer Transgender and Non-Binary Participants to this policy to understand the parameters in which they are able to take part in both Recreational Activity and Racing Competitions.

British Cycling’s entire policy can be read here.

FACT-O-RAMA! Brit press is so “woke” that the UK Sun actually (and hysterically)  wrote about a trans dude trying to get a Brazilian wax for “her scrotum.”

We in the U.S. aren’t much better when it comes to women’s rights in sports. A man calling himself Lia Thomas is dominating the NCAA women’s swimming competitions. Thomas is allowed to roam naked with real women in the locker room. Thomas claims to be a chick but is also sexually attracted to women. Some of the real female swimmers have complained about having to see Thomas’ twig and berries, and, as PJ Media’s Rick Moran wrote,

The school’s response? They’re offering mental health services to the athletes. In other words, if a man walking around your locker room exposing himself upsets you, obviously there’s something wrong with you and you need a mental health check.




Female Swimmers Complain Trans Teammate Lia Thomas Exposes Male Body Parts in Locker Room

There are plenty of legitimate objections raised against allowing transitioning transgender athletes to compete as a gender other than the one they were assigned at birth.

But it’s the practical objections that resonate the most with the rest of us. And for those objections, trans activists have no good answers.

One such practical objection is the locker room situation. Anyone who has ever competed in any sport — either as an individual or as a member of a team — knows that segregating the sexes in a locker room is necessary to maintain a comfort level for everyone. And comfort is vitally necessary to aid in creating an atmosphere that allows for peak performance from an athlete.

But what if a transitioning male athlete is allowed to walk around naked in a locker room full of women? That’s the situation that is facing members of the University of Pennsylvania women’s swim team who are forced to share a locker room with transitioning male Lia Thomas.

And at least one swimmer is speaking up about it.

Daily Mail:

While Lia covers herself with a towel sometimes, there’s a decent amount of nudity,  the swimmer said. She and others have had a glimpse at her private parts.

She stated that team members have raised their concern with the coach, trying to get Thomas ousted from the female locker room, but got nowhere.

‘Multiple swimmers have raised it, multiple different times,’ the UPenn swimmer said. ‘But we were basically told that we could not ostracize Lia by not having her in the locker room and that there’s nothing we can do about it, that we basically have to roll over and accept it, or we cannot use our own locker room.’

‘It’s really upsetting because Lia doesn’t seem to care how it makes anyone else feel,’ the swimmer continued. ‘The 35 of us are just supposed to accept being uncomfortable in our own space and locker room for, like, the feelings of one.’

It’s not just the “feelings of one” that’s at issue. It’s that the school has decided that Lia Thomas is worth more as a human being than others.

‘The school was so focused on making sure Lia was okay, and doing everything they possibly could do for her, that they didn’t even think about the rest of us,’ the teammate told DailyMail.com.

‘It just seems like the women who built this program and the people who were here before Lia don’t matter. And it’s frustrating because Lia doesn’t really seem to be bothered by all the attention, not at all. Actually she seems like she enjoys it. It’s affected all of us way more than it’s affected her.’

The school’s response? They’re offering mental health services to the athletes. In other words, if a man walking around your locker room exposing himself upsets you, obviously there’s something wrong with you and you need a mental health check.

Lia Thomas is going to break the silence and tell the story to Sports Illustrated. We can expect a whiny appeal for “understanding” as Thomas is proclaimed a Martyr First Class by the media.

Meanwhile, women and girls are being forced to endure circumstances in the privacy of a locker room that 20 years ago would have resulted in Lia Thomas’s arrest for indecent exposure.
