Men Make the Best Women

There is no difference between men and women, we’re told by leftist activists, none whatsoever. We’re also told by these same people that there’s nothing a man can do better than a woman, aside from writing their name in the snow… What we aren’t told is just how much better at being women men actually can be, at sports anyway.

That last sentence is, of course, absurd. It’s also, if what the left is desperately trying to convince the world of were accurate, is undeniably true. 

We’ve all heard about the high school sprinters who were not very good as boys, but mopped up the track when they started competing as girls. I couldn’t care less how someone chooses to live in their personal life, my problem with the idea of “trans” is when I’m forced to deny reality to make someone else feel comfortable. If you’re a man and you want to wear a dress and be called Betty, I’ll call you Betty. But if you want me to pretend you can get pregnant or have to worry about cervical cancer, you’ve lost me. In the UK, they are spending good money reminding women to get screened for prostate cancer and other absurd things that simply are not real. Forcing me to pretend they are is when you lose me, and you’re not getting me back.

This idea that reality is dependent upon someone’s belief in it is as absurd as it sounds, yet it’s a belief system to which many on the left subscribe. So when you say something like gender is real, you’re committing a hate crime. I’m fine with that.

The fact is, as I’ve said before, no one has any idea what it’s like to be a different person, of the same gender or the opposite. Just like you couldn’t describe in any tangible way what chocolate tastes like to someone who’s never had it, or what coffee smells like to a person with no sense of smell, you can’t describe to another person what it literally feels like to be you. And you certainly can’t know what it’s like to be the opposite gender. To pretend otherwise is absurd and stupid. Be as uncomfortable in your own skin as you need to be, just leave everyone else out of it.

There’s a man now named Lia Thomas because Lia Thomas now insists he’s a woman. This 22-year-old is a swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania was not born Lia, but decided in recent years that he was actually a she, and is now setting swimming records for the Ivy League.

The New York Post reports, “Over the weekend, Thomas also set a new program, meet and pool record in the 1650-yard freestyle. She finished that race in 15:59.71 — more than 38 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher, teammate Anna Kalandadze.”

In racing of any kind, a second is a lifetime, but 38 seconds is forever and unheard of. Think about if for a minute, or half a minute – if someone wins a 100-meter dash by two tenths of a second there is no doubt who won, no need for a photo finish check. A full 38 seconds is enough time to start another race, make a sandwich, and take a nap. Count it out and see.

Thomas was not a successful swimmer against men, now that he’s a she, he’s destroying the competition. If there’s no difference between the sexes, how is that possible?

The obvious answer is it’s not possible. That’s also the correct answer.

Yes, there are some women who can beat most men in a sport, but when it comes to the best of the best, the male physical being is better constructed for strenuous activity. There is no person in the WNBA who could win a game of 1-on-1 or horse against Michael Jordan, either in his prime or even now. That’s not misogynistic to say, it’s just true. And it’s not transphobic to say men, no matter what they call themselves or how many pills they pop to counteract how they were born, are still physically men. It’s just true.

When it comes to sports, men make the best women. When it comes to life, for most of us women make the best women, but whatever you’re into is up to you. However, no matter how insistent leftists get, reality is not dependent upon your belief in it.
