It has been a decade of triumph for cross-dressing men.
“Caitlyn” Jenner, the strapping Olympian gold-medal recipient formerly known as Bruce, won Glamour Magazine’s “Woman of the Year.”
First Lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Anthony Blinken gave Alba Rueda, a biological male identifying as female, a “Women of Courage” award for International Women’s Day.
That’s not even to mention all of the success cross-dressing men have had playing women’s sports against women, Lia Thomas being the most prominent example recently. As one comedian recently joked: “I’m okay with transgender athletes participating in women’s sports — as long as I’m allowed to bet. Yes, I’d like to put all my money on the lady with the size 11 sneakers, please. I’ve got a feeling about her.”
In fact, in 2021, a man won New Zealand’s “Sportswoman of the Year” award.
The 2021 pinup swimsuit cover model for Sports Illustrated was … a biological male.
For several years in a row, magazine lists of influential or prestigious women have included a significant percentage of biological men.
In fact, it is becoming downright transphobic to choose an actual woman for an award designated for women. What — you don’t think that guy is a real woman? Bigot!
So naturally (that may be precisely the wrong word), USA Today has decided to put Democratic state Senator Leigh Finke of Minnesota on its annual “Women of the Year” list. Finke has served for less than three months but was widely celebrated by the LGBT movement as the first person identifying as transgender to be elected to the Minnesota legislature. The newspaper described Finke as “an activist for transgender and LGBTQ+ rights, as well as Black Lives Matter, almost her [sic] whole life.”
