In a shocking turn of events, two transgender cyclists dominated the women’s race in Chicago, leaving only one biological female on the podium. Tessa Johnson, 25, and Evelyn Williamson, 30, took first and second place, respectively, at the Chicago Cyclocross Cup. While their victory may be celebrated by some, it raises concerns about the fairness of competition and the integrity of women’s sports.
Two ‘Trans’ Cyclists Take Top Spots in Women’s Race

It’s become increasingly clear that allowing transgender athletes to compete against biological females is simply not fair. Johnson and Williamson, who identify as transgender women, may have claimed the top spots, but it’s important to remember that they were originally born as males. Biologically, they possess certain advantages that give them an edge over their female competitors.
Organizers of the event proudly declared their commitment to welcoming transgender athletes, hailing it as a victory for inclusivity. However, their decision to allow self-selection of gender for non-elite races raises serious questions about the integrity of the sport. To protect the fairness and integrity of women’s racing, it is essential that governing bodies establish clear guidelines and policies that protect the rights of biological females to compete on a level playing field.
To make matters worse, Evelyn Williamson is part of a “throuple” relationship with Austin Killips, another biological male cyclist who believes he is a woman. This raises concerns about the potential for collusion and manipulation of the results in favor of transgender athletes. It’s not surprising that female champion Hannah Arensmen decided to leave the sport after competing against Killips, citing the inherent unfairness of transgender athletes participating in women’s races.
The impact of transgender athletes in women’s sports is not limited to cycling. Will “Lia” Thomas, a male swimmer on the University of Pennsylvania’s team, caused discomfort among his female teammates and deprived them of the recognition and opportunities they rightfully earned. It’s clear that action needs to be taken to address this issue and ensure that women’s sports remain fair and competitive.
The argument for allowing transgender athletes to compete against biological females is often framed as a matter of inclusivity and equality. However, true equality should not come at the expense of fairness for all athletes, including biological females. It’s time for governing bodies and sports organizations to recognize the need for clear and objective rules that protect the integrity of women’s sports. Let’s create an environment where every athlete can compete on a level playing field and showcase their true abilities.
