Shut Up, Meg

I never thought I would quote Family Guy’s Peter Griffin in a headline, but here we are, dear reader. Woke women’s soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe has stepped back into the limelight to express more of her ill-informed and asinine views. This time, it is about biological men competing with biological women in sports. Spoiler alert: She’s all about men trouncing women in basketball and other competitions.

During an interview with Time Magazine, the silly soccer sensation argued that parents should bend over for the transgender lobby because their daughter’s sports just aren’t all that important.

“I would also encourage everyone out there who is afraid someone’s going to have an unfair advantage over their kid to really take a step back and think what are we actually talking about here,” she bloviated. “We’re talking about people’s lives. I’m sorry, your kid’s high school volleyball team just isn’t that important.”

Rapinoe continued: “And I think people also need to understand that sports is not the most important thing in life, right? Life is the most important thing in life.”

I wonder how this chick feels about abortion? Never mind, the purple hair already gives it away, doesn’t it?

But that’s not all. Rapinoe also tried to downplay the fact that biological men are destroying women in their sporting events, claiming it isn’t happening frequently enough to be an issue.

“Show me the evidence that trans women are taking everyone’s scholarships, are dominating in every sport, are winning every title. I’m sorry, it’s just not happening,” she said. “So we need to start from inclusion, period. And as things arise, I have confidence that we can figure it out. But we can’t start at the opposite. That is cruel. And frankly, it’s just disgusting.”

It was the typical straw man argument that has grown increasingly popular among those who enjoy watching men beat the crap out of biological females in MMA events. Nobody is actually arguing that trans women – AKA men – are “winning every title.” The fact of the matter is that it should not be happening in any women’s sport because biological men clearly have a physical advantage over biological women. Moreover, pretending sports are not “that important” to young girls is a slap in the face to female athletes hoping to win scholarships, trophies, and other victories in sports. RedState’s Kira Davis, who also happens to be a woman, laid it out nicely:

Imagine being a young, minority woman from a modest or even poverty-heavy environment, playing your heart out on your high school volleyball team every week, knowing this is your best (and maybe only) shot at paying for an education. Athletics have been a way out of undesirable life circumstances and poverty for minority children for as long as we’ve had collegiate and professional sports. It takes quite a lot of self-absorbed gall to suggest athletics just aren’t that important to someone like that.

I wonder how a younger Rapinoe would have reacted if a man had taken her place on America’s women’s soccer team? It seems doubtful she would display this type of attitude in that scenario, doesn’t it?

We have already seen the spectacle over Lia Thomas, a biological man who has been obliterated female athletes in swimming competitions. While the progressive left was trying its darnedest to gaslight the public into thinking this was some brave victory on Lia’s part, the rest of the country was not buying it. The transgender issue remains a losing issue for the hard left.

Even two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton can see it. In an interview with the Financial Times, she said transgenderism should not be a top priority for Democrats seeking to avoid a major-league ass kicking in the upcoming congressional elections. “We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy, and everything that everybody else cares about then goes out the window,” she said in response to a question about the “transgender debate.”

Clinton continued, arguing that “the most important thing is to win the next election” and that “the alternative is so frightening that whatever does not help you win should not be a priority.”

Unfortunately for the left, they are too far gone to listen to this bit of political wisdom. Like Rapinoe, they will continue trying to force the public to swallow their trans agenda while everyday people are paying almost double to fill up their gas tanks. But, if they’re in the middle of imploding, who are we to stop them?
