I hate the “history” months. I guess that makes me a horrible person, but I would prefer that we celebrate American History each day by highlighting historic contributions of Americans of all races. It doesn’t matter because these months aren’t going anywhere. In fact, I expect we will add more. And that is sad because that is an implication that we don’t consider the subgroups named as great Americans in their own right, but only because of skin color or gender, tribe, etc. Just more ways to divide.
But since this is Women’s History Month I want Kamala Harris to know I think she should be ashamed of herself. I won’t get into her personal habits or how she made her way through California politics. I won’t mention her fraudulent portrayal of herself as a “black” woman.
She should be ashamed because she supports the man who single-handedly is destroying women’s sports.
As a child of the 60’s and 70’s, I remember that there were not many opportunities for women to be involved in sports. Little League was just for boys. Most youth leagues and high school sports were for boys. Occassionally, a girls’ team would crop up here and there, but we were grossly outnumbered. I was a girl who wanted so much to be an athlete. I wanted to play baseball. I wanted to play basketball, and not that stupid half court game girls played. I wanted to run track.
I did get to run track. In fact it was one of the only girls’ sports available, so I did high jump and run sprints. I wasn’t very good, but I loved the challenge. When I got to high school, of course, girls sports were considered second class. There were limited sports available and they didn’t even really compete as a varsity sport. They were club sports.
Then, on June 23, 1972, an amazing thing happened and Title IV was created, President Nixon ( a Republican) signed it and suddenly women’s sports were important for the first time in the lives of so many.
In the years since, women’s and girl’s sports have exploded. My daughter and her friends have had opportunities we never had including collegiate athletic scholarships in a variety of sports. There are now pro sports for women as well. The numbers of young girls playing sports in this country is in the hundreds of thousands.
For women of all ages, so many opportunites have opened up. Women are now competing in many lifetime sports as well. For example, in distance running, women of all ages comprise more than half of the participants.
Things were looking so good for women in sports.
And then, an old man who didn’t even seem to know what he was doing, signed one executive order that destroyed all of that. With that order, he allowed biological men who now claim to be women, to compete against women in women’s sports. All of a sudden, a male who by biology is stronger, bigger, and faster can call himself a woman and use that unfair advantage against women in competition. And, regardless of how many hormones you take to suppress your male hormones, the lasting effect of being a man for a huge part of your life gives you stronger bones and muscles.
Women are already paying the price for this disastrous order. Girls who used to be in line for athletic scholarships are now overshadowed by biological boys who have suddenly become girls. Female fighters are being beaten almost to death by biological men who are now ” women.” Competitive records set by women are now obliterated by trans competitors. Instances of the new uneven playing ground are plentiful. The careers and lives of female athletes are being destroyed.
And all to placate a certain group of people and pander to the radical political agenda of certain puppet masters.
So, now let’s get back to talking about Kamala, a woman who wants to be held up as a role model for women, who wants to be touted as a champion for women’s issues, who wants to be reverred in this role as the first selected Vice President of the United States.
What has Kamala said about this attack on women’s sports? Has she stood up and condemned the unfair advantage of trans females over biological females? Has she expressed disappointment in the actions of her “boss?”
Nope. Not. One. Word.
Not a single word from a so called heroic first woman VP of the United States during Women’s History Month. I guess it doesn’t fit in her tactics to move further up the political ladder and gain more power. She doesn’t seem to think the rights of female athletes matter.
Shame on her.
For that matter, have you heard any of the “champions” for women’s rights say anything? How about the soccer kneelers on the U. S. team? Why haven’t these feminists spoken out?
The sad reason is that Harris and the feminists want so badly to be part of the Democrat power structure that they will ignore this decision. It doesn’t really impact them, they got theirs. And, although Democrats claim to be for different group causes, each subgroup has to take its turn as the “cause du jour” of the party. And once that time is up, they need to move to the back of the pack.
And guess who is at the front right now? Transvestites. Sorry girls, we’ve been replaced.
But, hey, happy Women’s History month. I hope you understand the irony you created.
