Taylor Liane Chandler And Michael Phelps Drama Explained
While talking to Radar Online, Taylor addressed the recent comments made by Michael Phelps about the Tans swimmer.
As the Trans student has joined the women’s swim team at the University of Pennsylvania, Michael said, “I think this leads back to the organizing committees again because it has to be a level playing field. That’s something that we all need. Because that’s what sports are.”
He further added, “I believe that we all should feel comfortable with who we are in our own skin, but I think sports should all be played on an even playing field.”
Following these comments, Taylor has called the swimmer a hypocrite. She said, “With his 6’7″ wingspan, double-jointed ankles and huge feet. His chemical composition allows him to breathe in and fill his lungs and hold his breath longer”.
She further added, “I felt like I was good enough to love, lay with and be with, but not be respected or allowed in the women’s sport of swimming – like I was not a woman, but rather an alien or God-knows-what. It can’t be a woman’s sport if it doesn’t include all women, period!”
