Joe Rogan has accused trans athlete Lia Thomas of causing ‘an assault on women’s sports’.
Thomas has become the first Transgender swimmer to win the 500-yard freestyle event at the US collegiate championships in Atlanta with a time of 4 minutes 33:24.
Rogan of course had to loudly give his opinion on the situation, calling Thomas’s participation ‘not fair’. He stated:
“People are – Women are so frustrated because if you – or parents if your daughter is competing and they’re competing against trans women it’s not fair.”
“It’s not fair no matter what anybody says. There’s this nonsense idea of like ‘well there’s outliers’.”
“There are outliers and then there’s biological males.”
“There’s a reason why we have a distinction between men and women’s sports.”
Joe Rogan explains why letting trans athletes such as Lia Thomas compete Is “terrible for the trans movement”, because it makes people “cynical” and “less likely” to accept trans people and trans rights. pic.twitter.com/ETnWHPtm4b
