Caitlyn Jenner has weighed in on Thomas; according to Pink News, Jenner said, “I don’t see how you can be happy beating other girls under these circumstances. You have to have a sense of personal responsibility. You can still enjoy sports but not play at a competitive level, right?” In its tweet and headline, Pink News called that “another disgraceful attack on trans athletes.”

We didn’t know there was a Swimming World magazine, but its editor weighed in on Lia Thomas as well:

Grotesque and unjust, and I suspect we all know it. https://t.co/XrUzVjWBRu
