National outrage has grown in recent days because a transgender female – also known as a biological male – just won a women’s NCAA swimming championship and stole the victory from actual females.

Lia Thomas won first place in the women’s 500-yard freestyle swim event as a biological male, thanks to the NCAA’s rules that allow athletes to compete with whichever gender they identify as.

The modern-day feminists that used to be so vocal about women’s rights seem to have disappeared. Meanwhile, the science so many progressives advocated for during Covid-19 mandates is also nowhere to be found.

On Tuesday, Governor Ron DeStantis proclaimed the second place winner, Emma Weyant, as the new winner, firmly taking a stand against the NCAA. 

“If the NCAA was willing to actually ensure the integrity of women’s competition, she would have been crowned national champion,” DeSantis said.

As the battle between biological facts versus feelings intensified this week, several other altercations surrounding the matter have come into the spotlight. 

Sen. Marsha Blackburn questioned Supreme Court nominee Judge Jackson about gender on Tuesday, asking for her definition of a woman. Jackson dodged the question and ultimately said she’s not a biologist and is not able to provide a definition. She could soon sit on our nation’s highest court.

USA Today’s 12 Women of the Year features Dr. Rachel Levine, the trangender assistant health secretary in the Department of Health and Human Services. Until the age of 54, Levine was Richard Levine – a man. Presumably, he took the spot of an actual woman who has accomplished much more than becoming an assistant secretary at a federal agency.

On Tuesday, Twitter suspended Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk’s account for saying that Levine is, in fact, a man. Several other accounts were also suspended for violating Twitter’s policy on hateful conduct. 

“Everything I said was precisely accurate,” Kirk told The Post Millennial, “and yet, Twitter still suspended my account. That should terrify every American, even those who disagree with me. What they want is submission. They have become the enemy of the truth.”

Progressive forces in our culture have launched a simultaneous attack against both men and women in America. Masculinity is supposedly toxic and femininity is sidestepped by confused men who are encouraged to change their gender. As we’ve seen, these efforts rob women of their athletic achievements, which is why state legislatures, including Indiana, Kansas and Utah this week, have pushed for transgender sports bans to stop the takeover of women’s sports.

Progressives and the media are successfully creating a confused and degenerative society that is breaking down women, men and the idea of the nuclear family. Biology can’t be changed, and it’s become the left’s goal to change this fact.
