On Tuesday, the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania House passed a bill that would ban biological males who identify as females from playing in K-12 girl’s and collegiate women’s sports. Males ruining female sports has been a contentious subject as of late, to say the least.
Biological males can wish all they want to be a female, but it’s not going to happen. Ever. Wish in one hand and drop a load of bullschtein in the other and see which one fills up first. A male is born with XY chromosomes and a female is born with XX chromosomes. No amount of female sports outfits, makeup, sports bras, drugs, or surgery is ever going to result in a person born as a male to get rid of that Y chromosome.
A Senate bill, SBB 1191, is similar to the House bill is now pending and it will more than likely pass as Republicans control the Senate as well.
Democrat Governor Tom Wolf, who has always sided with the transgender movement that is marginalizing American women, has threatened to veto the bill.
Wolf tweeted out his message of support for the conquerors of females:
“As states across the country push transphobic legislation, some Republicans in the General Assembly are wasting time attempting the same in Pennsylvania. It won’t get past my desk. Let’s enhance protections for LGBTQ+ Pennsylvanians instead. Send me the bipartisan Fairness Act.”

The progressive Wolf mentioned a bill, HB300, that he supports to “enhance protections for LGBTQ+ Pennsylvanians instead.” So the governor is admitting that he favors people who suffer from a mental illness called diaspora that is listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), the psychiatric manual for mental disorders, over biological female Pennsylvanians.
HB300 calls to “amend the state Human Relations Act to add protections against discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression.”
The problem I have with that is “gender identity” is nothing more than a social construct. No one can make the factual claim that anyone can change their gender. It can not happen. It is impossible. End of story. PERIOD.
It is amazing how the Democratic Party has decided that supporting transgender “rights,” that brings hardship to millions of people, is the hill they are willing to die on.
The main sponsor of the bill, state Representative Barbara Gleim (R-199), noted “Lia Thomas,” the male athlete from the University of Pennsylvania who swam ranked at 462 in the men’s league and then woke up one day and claimed he was a woman and now ranks #1 in the women’s swimming league, as a good example of why the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act is necessary.
All those years the Democrats claimed to have a monopoly on caring about women was just a farce. They saw the women’s vote as a tool to exploit for the own power and greed just like they are now exploiting the LGBTQ+ movement for the same purposes. Who will they dump LGBTQ+ for?
“Women lose out on a fair playing field when forced to compete against biological men,” Gleim said.
State Rep. Joseph Hohenstein, who claims his child identifies as transgender, said the bill is a “solution looking for a problem,” according to the report.
“This piece of legislation attacks my child and others like them simply because of who they are and how they choose to express their humanity,” Hohenstein said.
Wrong. It doesn’t matter if his kid suffers from a mental disorder, there is absolutely a problem when biological males are allowed to compete against biological females. Hohenstein’s solution of forcing females to compete against male athletes to enable their mental illness is creating the problem for female athletes. It’s so simple to understand you just know Democrats are being diabolical about the issue.
The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act was passed only days after a number of NCAA and Olympic champions joined together and released a letter where they are demanding action be taken to protect women’s sports after the Lia Thomas victories. Close to 40 retired swimmers, several Olympians and NCAA champions among them, including a USA Swimming team director, are raising some serious questions about the NCAA’s rules allowing transgender athletes.
“It’s hard to express the anguish the women’s swim community has experienced this past week watching the 2022 NCAA Swim & Dive Championships,” the letter reads.
The leftists took away women’s voices too. Marshi Smith, a former NCAA champion, said that the group who signed the letter spoke out because “individually we felt like we didn’t have a voice. We weren’t being asked our opinions or possible solutions to what was going on.”
That’s the thing about leftist totalitarians. They never ask for the opinions of their victims.
