NOW Claims Keeping Biological Men Out Of Women's Sports Is 'Weaponizing Womanhood'

The National Organization for Women (NOW) was founded in 1966 with the intent of ending discrimination against women in America. Nearly 60 years later, they’ve given up on that mission entirely.

NOW has taken issue with a lawsuit funded by the Independent Council on Women's Sports (ICONS) that will demand the NCAA make a change on its policies allowing transgendered females (biological males) to compete in women’s sports. Marshi Smith, an ICONS co-founder and former national champion swimmer, believes her organization’s lawsuit is critical to protecting women’s sports for future generations.

"This lawsuit against the NCAA isn't just about competition; it's a fight for the very essence of women's sports," ICONS co-founder and former national Smith said. "We‘re standing up for fairness, for the rights of female athletes to compete on a level playing field. It’s about preserving the legacy of Title IX and ensuring that the future of women’s sports is as bright and as fair as its past."

Other former collegiate athletes - like Riley Gaines - have joined in supporting this lawsuit.

You would think that an organization like NOW, which fights for the end of discrimination against women, would be fully on board with this lawsuit.

But they’re not.

NOW tweeted a story about this lawsuit from the Associated Press, and chose to make the absurd claim that the women behind this lawsuit are weaponizing “white supremacy patriarchy.”

The hypocrisy in this statement is absurd.

Transgendered women are not women - they are biological men who (wrongly) believe that a surgery changes their biological identity. So if an organization has the common sense to say men competing in women’s sports is wrong, they are not “weaponizing womanhood against other women,” because transgenders aren’t women.

Furthermore, I don’t even know where to start on the white supremacy line. How does advocating for common sense and biological women make you racist? Oh that’s right, it doesn’t.

In 1966, NOW said in its “Statement of Purpose” that they believed “that the time has come for a new movement toward true equality for all women in America.” All these years later, they have abandoned that purpose and are fighting against the people they vowed to defend.
