After former University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, who claims to be a woman, suggested that women athletes who criticize Thomas for competing in women’s sports are “transphobic” but too scared to say so, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld ripped Thomas for having the nerve to tell women how to behave.

Thomas made the comments — which included the charge that seeing men as men and women as women was derived from “patriarchal ideas” — while speaking to former NCAA swimmer Schuyler Bailar, who claims to be a man, on Bailar’s podcast. Asked about a letter sent by Thomas’ female teammates to the NCAA, warning against its rules permitting Thomas to participate in women’s sports, Thomas responded, “They’re using the guise of feminism to sort of push transphobic beliefs. I think a lot of people in that camp sort of carry an implicit bias against trans people, but don’t want to, I guess, fully manifest or speak that out. And so they try to just play it off as this sort of half-support.”

“First, I gotta give the swimmer some credit. Lia’s got some serious balls,” Gutfeld mocked. “I mean, to tell feminists how to be a feminist, you gotta say that’s pretty gutsy.”

“Instinctively almost biologically, human beings do not like line cutters” he asserted. “Men who identify as women in sport, and they win a lot, feels like you’re cutting in line.”

“The fact is no one really cares about adults getting sex changes. You want to change your sex, if your family’s okay with it, we don’t care. Have fun. Do whatever you want. But when you do it mysteriously right before you start engaging in female sports or it involves children, it sets off an alarm, and you immediately get the feeling, no, this isn’t fair,” he declared.

“The thing that kind of bugs me, we’ve shifted the world so that it’s about everybody’s personal happiness, like you’re infringing on Lia Thomas’ happiness if you say this is wrong, but what about the happiness of all the other people who she beats, or he beats? Whatever, I don’t care about the pronouns. Their happiness means more … because they spent years practicing, they’ve put in the hours, they’re winners, and now they’ve gotta look and go, ‘Well, not winning anymore,’” he concluded.
