Lia Thomas, the controversial transgender swimmer for the University of Pennsylvania, has caused an uproar in the world of swimming sports as he continues to set new records.
According to Breitbart, the situation has grown so far out of hand that it just caused a USA Swimming official to tender her resignation, with the former official making clear after a 30-year career with the organization that she can’t continue to watch a biological man destroy the futures of college-level female swimmers any longer.
“I can’t do this, I can’t support this,” Cynthia Millen told The Washington Times, telling the outlet that she could no longer support the swimming league in its current state.
“I told my fellow officials that I can no longer participate in a sport which allows biological men to compete against women. Everything fair about swimming is being destroyed,” Millen told Fox News.
What’s going on?
Thomas, who competed for almost three years in men’s swimming before making the transition over the course of a year before joining the women’s swimming team at the woke university.
It didn’t take long for Thomas to prove why biological males competing in women’s sports, generally speaking, is grossly unfair, as Thomas has reportedly “smashed” numerous women’s swimming records as a result of no longer having the competition he did while on the men’s team.
One Twitter user noted that Thomas’ continued record-breaking performances in the pool is helping bring attention to just how insane the idea of males competing against females truly is.
Big thanks to #liaThomas for saving women’s sports by showing just how preposterous it is for a strapping athletic young biological man to compete with biological women.

Millen made clear that if she would have been called to referee a match that included Thomas, she wouldn’t have counted the trans swimmer as a competitor and only would have allowed him to swim for time trials.
“If Lia came on my deck as a referee, I would pull the coach aside and say, ‘Lia can swim, but Lia can swim exhibition or a time trial. Lia cannot compete against those women because that’s not fair,” Millen explained.
The former USA swimming official’s hopes are that more referees and officials join her in resigning out of protest in order to protect the time-honored sport of women’s competitive swimming, noting that the league would have to make choices if enough officials leave.
“This is not right because by doing this, we’re supporting this. There are no swim meets if there are no officials,” Millen said.
