Transgenderism's Erasure of Women Part 2: The Sorority House

First, it was transgender women competing in sports with biological women. Now, transgender indoctrination and forced compliance have come to college campuses in the form of transgender women pledging sororities. The prospect of this is not a positive one —  just ask the sisters of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority at the University of Wyoming. Several members of the sorority have filed a lawsuit, stating that what was once a comfortable living environment for biological females, has become one of extreme uncomfortability, and even fear. The “sister” in question, is six-foot-two, 260-pound Artemis Langford. Langford, who joined the sorority in 2022, does not currently live in the house but has been granted permission to move in for the fall semester in September. The members have asked a judge to declare Langford’s membership null and void and to award damages in accordance with the lawsuit.

For anyone to speak out against transgender persons on a college campus these days is risky. But that has not stopped several members of the sorority from speaking out against not only Langford moving into the house, but his/her membership in the organization altogether. In the lawsuit, they claim that even though Langford does not live in the house, he does come to share meals and spend time with other members in the house. Members say that time spent in the house includes sitting in a chair and watching them for hours without speaking. The second floor of the house if off-limits to males unless someone is moving in or out. Restrooms and showers are a rather open area, also on the second floor. The lawsuit states:

An adult human male does not become a woman just because he tells others that he has a female ‘gender identity’ and behaves in what he believes to be a stereotypically female manner. The Fraternity Council has betrayed the central purpose and mission of Kappa Kappa Gamma by conflating the experience of being a woman with the experience of men engaging in behavior generally associated with women.

In true transgender indoctrination fashion, every accommodation for Artemis Langford’s rights is being granted, but seemingly none for the actual women of the KKG sorority chapter. During a recent appearance on Megyn Kelly’s podcast to discuss the situation, one member said, “It’s a weird gut-wrenching feeling that every time I leave my room I’ll walk past him in the hall in whatever setting that may be. And it’s never a pleasant encounter and that’s the scary part. This just goes to show that we need women’s spaces for that reason. Our house is our home.” The experience is especially disturbing for several other members who have been sexually harassed or assaulted.

Among some of the other allegations from members, Langford has made inappropriate comments to them, including asking them about any romantic relationships they have. They also claim that Langford attended a slumber party where he was supposed to leave by 10 p.m., but was there until midnight. He returned the next morning and was standing in a corner watching members change. There were also several reports about Lankford becoming obviously physically aroused. They claim he puts a pillow in his lap to conceal it. The members who have spoken up about Langford say their words fell on deaf ears of senior sorority members, all the way up to chapter managers, who all but forced members to vote Langford into the group. They claim there was a “deal with it or get out” message given to members. One member claims that by refusing to shower or sleep in the same area as Langford, she was called a “bigot,” and a “transphobe.”

College sorority houses are just the latest stop on the left’s path to essentially erasing women and anything that is exclusively female. Aren’t these the same people who, fifty years ago, were on the front lines of the women’s movement and later the push to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment? Once again we have to ask, where are those women — where are those “feminists” now? Where are they to stand up for and behind these young women? They are nowhere because it is not politically expedient for them. Former college swimmer Riley Gaines recently testified before Congress about her ordeal of sharing a locker room with six-foot-four, obviously male transgender swimmer Lia Thomas. Members of sororities may also find themselves before Congress at some point. But will it do any good?

As a sorority member myself, I can say that the experience of being in a sorority is something you carry for the rest of your life. Lifetime friendships are made and there is truly a bond of sisterhood like no other. For the senior members of Kappa Kappa Gamma themselves to diminish that for the cause of wokeness is simply unfathomable. One KKG member put it best, “We can’t allow woke culture to be the arbiter of what sisterhood is. It’s a shared experience. It’s growth and development. This experience is not doing this individual any justice whatsoever.” You said it, sister.
