Lia Thomas finished the race seven seconds ahead of team-mate Catherine Buroker.
Some team-mates have spoken anonymously - some in Lia's favour, others in criticism of Lia's inclusion on the team.
On the matter of transgender women's participation in women's sports, there has been criticism from Sharron Davies and Martina Navratilova.
Given what many female athletes regard as the unfairness of the situation, one would have assumed that fear of being accused of transphobia would be the least of their problems. The reluctance to speak openly is especially astonishing in the United States, whose constitution protects freedom of speech applies to all people, even including white supremacists.
So why are female athletes not boycotting prestigious sporting events?
Feminism managed to do in about a century what thousands of years of patriarchy never even attempted: it abolished womanhood.
That was not the aim of feminism.
Or patriarchy lmao. Dyr just throwing out buzzwords.
Its a fad. In 20 years we will look back with increduality that the crack in the op was tolerated. This in effect will discourage women and girls competing in sports.
Can you imagine if your 14 year old son was playing rugby, and the opposition showing up were a bunch of18 year old men who identified as 14 year olds. It wouldnt be tolerated
Better have a word with my wife. She's acting like everything is normal.
Yes that seems like a likely scenario. Great point.
Never said it was the aim of a patriarchy or the effect. Soniks just making stuff up or needs to spend time in the Derek Zoolander centre for kids that can't read good.
Lot of very defensive people in here, wonder why.
