KEN: Speaking of the whole transgender thing, we have Caitlyn Jenner, who for those of us who are old enough to remember, Bruce Jenner was quite the celebrity athlete. In fact, I remember Bruce being on the cover of Wheaties. Bruce was at his athletic prowess in the seventies when I was a mediocre track runner in high school and cross-country runner, always finished at the end of the pack. But Bruce was a big deal.
Now he’s Caitlyn. So you have to say “she” if you want to be woke. By the way, she will be on Sean Hannity tonight. How about that? Yeah, talking about her possible — or her run for governor. I think she’s actually running for governor. So I’m sure the advertisements will be out soon, and we can try to make sense of them.
But inevitably, some males who identify as women want to compete in sports, and that really provokes the question, and I think this is the core of it: Is it unfair or not? Of course it’s not fair. And the problem is when you get a level of brainwashed wokeness — and remember, woke is a joke. Woke is not being awake or aware or well researched or well informed.
Woke is just a joke. You’re brainwashed to say, “Look, that tree is a boat.” No, it’s not. “Yes, it is! You’re in trouble now.” You see, “The Human Rights Campaign says the White House is preparing now,” listen to this, “to directly confront the flood of anti-transgender legislation that is being proliferated through bills at the state level.” Okay.
So this is state-level, representative elected people responding to the people that voted for them. These are people that are saying, “Look, we may not want a six-foot-two male on the girls wrestling team even though he believes he’s a woman,” and now Biden — ’cause this is how communism works. They’re gonna swoop in and they’re gonna try to tell the states what to do again.
“Separately, the Department of Justice has told the Daily Beast,” listen to this, we “will ‘fully enforce our civil rights'” statuses or “statutes,” excuse me, I misread that, “‘to protect transgender individuals’…” Nobody has a problem with transgenders being protected. Nobody has a problem with transgenders being treated with respect. We’re beyond that now.
But like so much else on the left, the minute everybody is treated equal, the protected group wants more. Does that make sense? The minute people have accepted, “Oh, yeah, that’s Caitlyn Jenner. Oh, yeah, those guys are married. No big deal.” The minute they get to that point, then the people like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and other woke Nimrods, they come in and say, “Oh, but… But wait, there’s more.”
Now they want more. Now they want to say, “Look, we’ve got a 21-year-old college male who wants to compete with the females on the track team. So how does that protect the civil rights of the females on the track team? Even more, I don’t know if you’re aware of what’s going on in women’s MMA. There’s several transgenders in women’s MMA, Mixed Martial Arts and ultimate fighting…
I don’t know the exact terminology of what they call it now. How about that? How about the man who’s 20 and he thinks he’s a woman, and they put him in a cage to go at it with a woman fighter? This is… Now, don’t get me wrong. Most women I know could beat up most liberal men. But still, that aside, I don’t think it’s fair. It’s just “unfair,” and that’s the mantra of the left.
Level the playing field.
Everything needs to be fair.
Well, it is fair! You’re now allowed to… If you’re confused about your sexual identity and you’re a man, you can complete your — completely immerse yourself in being a woman, like Caitlyn Jenner. You can be on female magazines. No one’s allowed to call you “he.” No one’s allowed to call you “Bruce.” So what’s the problem? Why do you now want to cheat?
It’s a simple question, and I ask parents all the time that have young girls or college-age athletes in their family that they’re very proud of, “What’s gonna happen when your daughter loses her scholarship in year three because some guy was wearing the same track uniform as her and beat her and now he has the record?” You may remember that happened more than once in Connecticut.
So we need to pay close attention to this, because more and more people are speaking out. And they’re doing it legally, honestly, and transparently. And school boards are doing it, and parents and teachers, and they’re working together and getting legislation done. And that’s how you know the left is starting to panic, because now they’re dialing up the White House, and the Biden administration basically said, “We’re going to go after states that don’t,” for lack of a better term, I’ll say it, “live in our fantasy world.”
RUSH: Try this headline: “South Dakota Considering Legislation Barring Transgender Students from Competing Against Opposite Biological Sex.” Do I need to translate that for anybody, do you think? We now have men who say that they identify as women when they’re outside restrooms and female locker rooms — and other places too. I’m not trying to cause trouble here. We have men who say they identify as women.
And they have begun to say they identify as women while competing against women in sports. And these men — the protected transgender class who identify as women — now competing against women in sports are beating their pants off. So to speak. Not literally, that we’ve seen. Now, women have been kicking, they have been screaming, they have been complaining, they have been demanding over the years that they be treated as if they are as good if not better than men for decades in everything.
That has been at the heart of the feminazi movement. I think it’s the biggest mistake the feminists ever made was to try to move their agenda forward by essentially acting like men — and then once in that universe, claiming they’re better than men. But they’re the ones who put themselves there. They are the ones who cast that agenda and they’re the ones who now find themselves living the ramifications. Title IX and all of that.
So now transgender men come along… I’m sorry, what is it? Transgender women. Men who identify as women — and they’re protected! As a minority! I mean, if some guy comes along and says, “I identify as a woman,” he automatically is; you can’t criticize him. You’ve gotta let him do what he wants to do; otherwise you’re a bigot. And so these guys… (sigh) Well, women. These men as women are competing against women, and they’re creaming ’em, or wiping ’em out in athletic competitions.
The women of America, the feminazis, roiled college athletics with Title IX all in an effort to gain a more equal advantage in funding at the expense of men’s programs. They didn’t like the fact that the men’s football programs got all this money, men’s basketball. They wanted their share of the money. They did it on the basis that women are being discriminated against, Title IX came along. The women demanded; the women got. Now, men who are unquestioned when they identify as women.
It’s being proven, by the way, in the midst of all this that women cannot compete against men in athletic endeavors without standards being lowered, as they have been in fire departments, as they have been in the military, as they have been at the FBI. So inside they’ve gotta be mad as hell. They made all of this happen. They have promoted, they have sanctioned, they have permitted this very circumstance, which is now resulting in men who identify as women competing against women in athletic endeavors and other places just wiping ’em out.
So South Dakota, to show you… I mean, that’s what this story’s about. “South Dakota Considering Legislation Barring Transgender Students from Competing Against Opposite Biological Sex — On Monday, two Republican legislators in South Dakota introduced a bill that would throw out the South Dakota High School Activities Association’s 2015 policy allowing transgender students to join sports teams of the gender they choose, instead of their biological sex.”
So no longer — if this passes, in South Dakota — will men who identify as women but really aren’t women be allowed to compete against women in athletic endeavors, which is dealing a very serious blow to one of the objectives of transgenderism. Now, if they can do this, if they can come up with legislation saying, “Look, I don’t care. You’re a guy. Even though you say you feel like a woman, you’re a guy, and we’re not gonna let you compete against women when you’re a guy,” how far are we away from, “We’re not gonna let you go into the bathroom that’s for women when you’re not one”?
