Feminists Aren’t Really Feminists

2019 February 25

What ?

That’s right, they are leftists who just happen to be female.

That’s why they won’t speak up about Islam even thought it subjugates women, treats them like animals, practices female genital mutation, dresses them like refugees form the 7th century, etc., etc., etc.

It’s also why they support transgendered women in athletic competition. Women fought hard to get Title IX so they could have greater opportunities to compete in athletics and other pursuits. Now 17 states permit males who claim to be females to participate on traditional girls high school athletic teams – volleyball, softball, track, even basketball and soccer (which typically have boys teams). Since men – even those who claim to be women – are stronger and more athletic, that means some girls will either get cut from the team or get little playing time.

How will this impact women’s events in the Olympics or universities awarding a scholarship to a transgendered man over a women because s(he) will be more dominant on the school’s women’s basketball or volleyball team? Feminists really don’t seem to care.

Two recent events:

Across the U.S. and in many places abroad, transgender athletes are breaking barriers in high school, college and pro sports and being embraced by teammates and fans. But resentments can still flare when transgender women start winning and dominating their sport.

Exhibit A is a recent public exchange involving tennis great Martina Navratilova, who came out as a lesbian in 1981 and is a longtime gay-rights activist. She now stands accused of being “transphobic” after asserting that many transgender women — even if they’ve undergone hormone treatment — have an unfair advantage over other female competitors.

What Navratilova did was just tell the truth – that men are stronger and more athletic than women and have an unfair advantage when competing against women. Yet, no one from the so-called feminist movement is standing up for Naratilova even though she is standing up for women in sports. It’s been said that the William sisters, who have dominated women’s for the past decade, wouldn’t rank among the top 100 male tennis players worldwide.

The second was Connecticut girls track. Being a progressive state Connecticut (of course) permits boys who pose as girls to participate in girls sports.

Andraya Yearwood hears the comments, usually from adults and usually not to her face.

She shouldn’t be running, they say, not against girls.

Yearwood, a 17-year-old junior at Cromwell High School, is one of two transgender high school sprinters in Connecticut, transitioning to female.

She recently finished second in the 55-meter dash at the state open indoor track championships. The winner, Terry Miller of Bloomfield High, is also transgender and set a girls state indoor record of 6.95 seconds. Yearwood finished in 7.01 seconds and the third-place competitor, who is not transgender, finished in 7.23 seconds.

Miller and Yearwood also topped the 100-meter state outdoor championships last year, and Miller won the 300 indoors this season.

Critics say their gender identity amounts to an unfair advantage, expressing a familiar argument in a complex debate for transgender athletes as they break barriers across sports around the world from high school to the pros.

“I have learned a lot about myself and about other people through this transition. I always try to focus most on all of the positive encouragement that I have received from family, friends, and supporters,” Yearwood said. “I use the negativity to fuel myself to run faster.”  One of their competitors, Selina Soule, says the issue is about fairness on the track with wider implications. The Glastonbury High School junior finished eighth in the 55, missing out on qualifying for the New England regionals by two spots.

Soule believes that had Miller and Yearwood not run, she would be on her way to race in Boston in front of more college coaches.

“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” she said. “I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves. They should have the right to express themselves in school, but athletics have always had extra rules to keep the competition fair.”

There was a time, not that long ago, when boys/men would have been ashamed to compete as women, but that was back in the dark days of bigotry when up was up, hot was hot and wet was really wet … and girls really were girls.

    In the only competition that TRULY matters anymore, Feminists lost out in the Victimhood Olympics. Sorry, Feminists…but being “transgendered” is higher up the scale.

    Democrats across America should be really REALLY proud tonight.

    Today Senate Democrats defeated a Bill that said EXACTLY one thing: If a child was born alive during an abortion, the Doctor in attendance must provide care. PERIOD.

    The Democrats, in a clear nod to Satan, voted NO!

    Schumer and the rest of Death Eaters, argued that it is “already illegal to kill a child”. True enough. But it is NOT illegal for an Abortionist to stand by and let an infant DIE, simply because the woman says: “Let it die”. Just ask Governor Northam of Virginia.

    This is precisely like saying: “If I drop a rock on someone off a building and they die, I did NOT kill them…GRAVITY killed them!”

    Comment 2 is true to the core.

    Feminists are typically low on the scale of appearances. Does that make transgendered feminists doubly ugly?’

    Next question. If a white female feminist switches to being a white male don’t they lost points? Oh and who gets to keep score and hold the yellow card??

    Considering the Democrats absolute devotion to abortion up to and THROUGH the moment of birth, I was reminded of this quote from ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’

    “For some, autumn comes early, stays late through life where October follows September and November touches October and then instead of December and Christ’s birth, there is no Bethlehem Star, no rejoicing, but September comes again and old October and so on down the years, with no winter, spring, or revivifying summer. For these beings, fall is the ever normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth. In gusts they beetle-scurry, creep, thread, filter, motion, make all moons sullen, and surely cloud all clear-run waters. The spider-web hears them, trembles–breaks. Such are the autumn people. Beware of them.”

    I believe the Bible recounts multiple instances where the people turn to evil and God allows evil to be visited upon them.
    Dems are evil, that’s a given. But pray that enough Repubs stand up to fight against evil. Or retire and make way for ones who will.
    I’m sure we all agree we don’t want The Big Guy to get the wrong impression …

    President Trump:

    “Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth.

    This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”

    “Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. ”

    It would have been good framing for an election the only problem is it had to include some Senate Republicans (on paper) voting against it or else it would have passed.

    I question ‘how long?’ 2 mins, 2hrs, 2 days? How about 10 years? Twenty? And then why we would do it? How quickly such thinking gives the State license to kill anyone who is not convenient to it purposes.

    The article kind of rambles, but the of the article says it all:

    ==> Eric Hoffer famously prophesied that “Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” Maybe he should have said that the taste for political activism becomes, with the accession to power, a shameful addiction, a conspiracy of fake victims and regime enforcers ginning up “fake hate crimes” in a pathetic attempt to recreate that well-remembered first hit of naive idealism.

    One day soon, some little kid is going to embarrass us all and say that the emperor of activism has no clothes.

    Imagine the day of lefty Narrative collapse; you can do it if you try.

    The senate bill would have passed had ten supposed Catholic Democratic senators not voted against it.

    The US Conference of Catholic Bishops, which condemned the boys from Covington Catholic and President Trump for declaring a national emergency within hours has been silent and still hasn’t spoken out about the New York abortion law.

    I confess that though I love history, I had not heard of the paradox of Epimenides. But it fits the Michael Cohen “testimony” PERFECTLY!

    Epimenides, who was a Cretan, declared that “all the Cretans are liars”

    hmmm…but if he himself is a Cretan, then he must be lying about all Cretans being liars!!

    Michael Cohen is not a Cretan (from Crete), but he is a CRETIN, which the dictionary defines as
    ==> Cretin: a stupid, vulgar, or insensitive person…see: clod, lout

    Yup. Michael Cohen is a clod, a lout and a stupid vulgar person.

    Oh, and he IS a disbarred lawyer and CONVICTED Felon, whose crime was LYING TO CONGRESS (among other things).

    So THIS is the cretin the Democrats want us to believe NOW?!?!?

    LOL!.
