Boosie BadAzz Goes Off on Transgender Swimmer Lia Thomas – ‘Get Your Ass Out the Pool’ 1

 

Boosie BadAzz has offered his thoughts on transgender individuals participating in certain sports, saying he doesn’t feel it’s fair to those who are cisgender—or identify as the gender in which they were born—and play the same sports.

During an interview with DJ Vlad from March 17, Boosie weighed in on University of Pennsylvania transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, whose ranking jumped from No. 462 as a male to No. 1 as a female. According to the New York Post last month, Thomas competed on the university’s men’s team for three years prior to undergoing two years of hormonal replacement therapy as a part of her transition to becoming a woman.

Aside from Boosie opining on the controversy, others have also expressed that Thomas shouldn’t be allowed to compete on the women’s team. Sixteen members of the University of Pennsylvania swim team have spoken against Thomas competing, saying she has an unfair advantage against her counterparts from a biological standpoint.

According to the Washington Post, the team penned a letter, which said, “We fully support Lia Thomas in her decision to affirm her gender identity and to transition from a man to a woman. Lia has every right to live her life authentically. However, we also recognize that when it comes to sports competition, that the biology of sex is a separate issue from someone’s gender identity. Biologically, Lia holds an unfair advantage over competition in the women’s category, as evidenced by her rankings that have bounced from #462 as a male to #1 as a female.”

The NCAA Board of Governors voted that a sport-by-sport approach will be used for transgender athletes, the Post reports. As far as USA Swimming, swimming’s national governing body, a three-person panel of medical experts will conclude if a swimmer has a competitive advantage because of her prior physical development as a man. The testosterone levels in the swimmer’s blood must also not pass a certain threshold.
