Author Nick Adams called the development “GREAT NEWS,” and Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn said the NCAA might have figured out Thomas is not actually a woman.

Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas gets beat out for woman of the year by Columbia University fencer Sylvie Binder, GREAT NEWS!— Nick Adams (@NickAdamsinUSA) July 26, 2022
These Republicans are absolutely correct. Thomas is not a woman, and she had no business even being nominated for this award instead of female athletes. To be clear, Thomas’ elimination from consideration for this award does not magically fix everything. He still stole a national championship from female swimmers earlier this year, and the NCAA allowed it to happen. Furthermore, the NCAA made it clear that conference officials were the ones who selected the 151 nominees to advance in the contest. If the NCAA made the decision itself, there is no telling whether Thomas would have been selected. [firefly_poll] Make no mistake: The NCAA is still woke, and women’s sports in still in danger as long as males are allowed to compete against females. With that said, Monday’s announcement provided hope that at least some individuals in college athletics respect women and want to maintain the integrity of this award.
