(CHRISTIAN POST) – One of trans-identified swimmer Lia Thomas' former teammates accused her alma mater of silencing opposition to including a biological male on the women's swim team, revealing that female swimmers were forced to hide in bathroom stalls to avoid changing in front of Thomas.
In an interview published Tuesday by the Daily Wire, which purports to be the first public interview featuring one of Thomas' teammates, Paula Scanlan told conservative Matt Walsh that the University of Pennsylvania did not want the student-athletes to speak out on what was happening in the athletic department, calling the situation "scary."

"They continued to tell us that our opinions were wrong and if we had an issue about it, we were the problem," Scanlan said. "[A]nd it's frightening, and your future job is on the line."
