    Surge Summary: “Trans” athlete “Lia Thomas” — a male swimmer claiming to be a female competitor — is not performing the same kind of service Jackie Robinson did when he became the first black man to play in professional baseball.

    by The Ruth Institute 

    Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., called a “trans” athlete comparing himself to Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball, “offensive.”

    According to a teammate, Lia Thomas, a man competing against women in college swimming, calls himself “the Jackie Robinson of trans sports.”

    Morse slammed Thomas: “Comparing those who claim to have changed their sex to the civil rights movement is obscene. Jackie Robinson had to overcome racial prejudice in professional sports. He didn’t claim to be a person of color. He was a person of color. He lived his entire life with the disadvantages associated with being black in America at that time.”

    “By contrast, Will Thomas changed his name to Lia and now calls himself a woman. In today’s world, this takes no courage whatsoever. He faces none of the discrimination Jackie Robinson faced. And frankly, Thomas was mediocre when he competed against other men. Only since he began competing in women’s swimming events, has he shattered records. That’s because he’s a man, who’s naturally more muscular and powerful than women.”

    “Robinson was a man competing against other men. His race didn’t confer physical advantages. He competed on a level playing field while handicapped by racial prejudice.”

    In an earlier release, Morse noted: “For years we were told that colleges weren’t spending enough on women’s sports and that women weren’t being given enough of a chance to compete. Now, embracing so-called transgenderism is destroying women’s sports, and no one seems to care.”

    Morse concluded: “I hope Thomas’s absurd and self-serving comparison forces colleges to finally rethink their embrace of the ‘transgender’ fraud.”

    The Ruth Institute’s Transgender Resource Center contains videos, interviews, and research reports to counter the transgender ideology.

    Christian Post journalist Brandon Showalter reported on the Transgender Movement at the Ruth Institute’s 2020 Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution. The transcript is here: Reporting on the Transgender Movement: a report from the front.

    The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization, leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.
