Michael Phelps' trans ex-girlfriend disappointed with his views on Lia Thomas

Taylor Lianne Chandler, the transgender ex-girlfriend of Michael Phelps, is not happy with the reaction of her ex-boyfriend. It is known that 16 members of the University of Pennsylvania's sent a letter of complaint against Lia Thomas "We fully support Lia Thomas in her decision to affirm her gender identity and to transition from a man to a woman," read the anonymous letter.

"Lia has every right to live her life authentically." "However, we also recognize that when it comes to sports competition, that the biology of ses 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." In an interview with Radar, Chandler is disappointed with the girls who sent the letter, and believes that their parents are behind it.

"The 'teammates' of Lia Thomas come out with a scathing letter stating they don't want to compete against her, but they are not confident enough in their convictions to state their names," Chandler said.

"I'd be more apt to believe this is their parents behind this, an older generation that was taught to hate anyone outside gender norms." "Everyone is so quick to state advantages because someone was born a biological male.

Biological ses is far from that simple and far more complex." "How many people truly know their biological ses beyond what was assigned at birth by a doctor based on genitals?"

Chandler also decided to explain certain genetic things that create confusion among many "Biology of ses is multifaceted and includes genetic ses, hormonal ses and chromosomal ses said Chandler.

"What does that all mean?" "It means you may be genetically male or female; chromosomally male or female; and hormonally male, female or non-binary, with cells that may or may not hear the male/female/non-binary call."

"All of this can lead to a body that can be male, female or non-binary. Notice how confusing it gets. Can you point to what the absolute cause of biological ses is? Is it fair to judge people by it? No!" "Governing bodies should not succumb to outside pressure by people that are not trans and don't have a horse in the race," she continued. "What makes Michael Phelps an authority to even speak to trans women competing in swimming?"
