The Washingtonian’s Women in Washington October magazine was supposed to feature 150 notable women in the United States. Unfortunately, two women missed out on the honor of being listed because woke editors decided to showcase two transgenders instead. To add insult to injury, one transgender was featured on the magazine cover instead of a biological woman.
Granted, the two transgenders listed by the magazine do have some notable accomplishments to their name. One is a U.S. Air Force sergeant and linguist, while the other created a successful satellite radio business and later launched a NASDAQ-listed pharmaceutical company with facilities throughout the United States and Canada. However, that doesn’t change their biological sex. They’re biological men, and the fact that they are listed alongside women in a women’s magazine is not lost on anyone.
The snubbing of outstanding women in favor of recognizing men who want to pretend they are women isn’t just limited to this incident. Many men who have been unable to win sports competitions have declared themselves to be transgender, competed in women’s sports, and won first prize and the glory and accolades that come with such placement. The trend is depriving female athletes of the opportunity to excel in their chosen fields. This is particularly true in instances where the transgender women athletes do not have to undergo any sort of transition before competing in sports. Transgender women who want to compete in the Olympics must undergo transition therapy to ensure they do not have an unfair advantage over “cisgender” (read: biological) women athletes. Many states do not set down the same requirements for women’s sporting events at educational institutions.
Thankfully, many women are standing up to woke trans activists to say that enough is enough. These aren’t just “conservative transphobes.” World famous tennis player Martina Navratilova is a lesbian, and she has vocally stated that transgender women who compete against biological women are cheating. Feminist Natasha Chart has accurately pointed out that a man can never be a woman. Unfortunately, even left-leaning women who dare to stand up for women’s rights are sidelined or maligned by woke activists.
The Washingtonian’s Women in Washington October 2019 issue is meant to honor women for their many accomplishments. In many ways, it does just that. Historically, it has included women such as Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway, and Stephanie Grisham along with notable liberal women such as Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi. Even so, the sad fact remains that the magazine didn’t publish a list of 150 of the most notable women in the nation. It published a list that includes only 148.
