NBC News is being disparaged and ridiculed for choosing to take a stand on behalf of the biological men whom critics say are ruining women’s sports.

Last week the left-wing outlet published a lengthy piece portraying “transgender woman” Lia Thomas, a biological male who’s been dominating college-level women’s swimming, as the real victim.

Partly at issue, according to NBC News, is that Thomas’s critics have been referring to him by his real name, Will Thomas, and by his real pronouns, he and him. The network is particularly upset with conservative media over this.

“Some of the headlines about Thomas’ wins said she ‘smashed’ the records and continued her ‘dominant’ season alongside pre-transition photos of her and using her previous name and male pronouns — practices known as deadnaming and misgendering,” NBC’s piece reads.

Below is a post-transition photo of him:

The network also complains about the criticism itself, noting that far-left “transgender advocates” say the criticism is “transphobic.”

“They said it mischaracterizes her victories to make it appear that transgender women are cheating just by being trans and implies that one trans woman winning means trans women generally are dominating women’s sports,” the piece reads.

While the piece does include one quote from a critic, the vast majority of the post is spent quoting from transgender activists and advocates who all echo the same point about critics allegedly suffering from so-called “transphobia.”

What the piece lacks is any mention of Thomas’s prior record as a male college swimmer. He was, to put it simply, a loser. Thomas reportedly competed for three years in the NCAA and won nothing — not a single award.

As a “transgender woman,” meanwhile, he’s blown every record in women’s college swimming out the water, and as previously reported, his female teammates aren’t happy about what they perceive to be a “lack of fairness.”

One teammate told Outkick last week that she “wants people to know that Penn swimmers are ‘angry’ over the lack of fairness in the sport as Lia Thomas destroys the record books and brings fellow teammates to tears.”

She spoke with the sports outlet anonymously because of “threats from the university, activists, and the political climate.”

Left-wing activists, to be exact. Like the left-wing activists in the media who critics say are now seeking to silence opponents of radical transgender ideology.

As seen below, however, critics refuse to remain silent in the face of what they say is “woke misogyny and sexism” from the establishment press:

As noted earlier, NBC News is also facing ridicule.

One Twitter user accused the network of being the one actually guilty of “misgendering,” because biologically speaking, Thomas isn’t a “she” or “her.”

Another critic shared a clip of a “South Park” episode in which an extremely muscular man who resembles “Macho Man” Randy Savage crushes female track players.
