It has become increasingly difficult to define what a “woman” is these days, according to many on the left. TheDC contacted all 50 Senate Democrats to see if anyone was willing to give a definition.
Every time the Senate Democrats were asked to define a “woman,” they ignored it.
During her confirmation hearing, SCOTUS nominee Ketanji Jackson avoided the question as well, replying, “I am not a biologist.”
“Can you give a definition for the term ‘woman’?” asked Republican Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn, to which Jackson responded, “No, I can’t.”
“You can’t?” asked Blackburn.
“I’m not a biologist in this scenario,” said Jackson.
The meaning of a “woman” has changed for some people to include transgender women, and it has become more flexible, incorporating people who are not as rigid in the female-male gender binary, advocating for phrases like “chestfeeding” and “birthing people.”
In January, TV host Matt Walsh on Dr. Phil debated a “non-binary” couple. Addison, One of the guests, was asked to define what a woman is.
“I don’t think of what a woman is because I am not a woman,” Addison said. “Womanhood is a broader term that encompasses people who identify as women… It’s each person’s decision. Each lady, each guy, and every individual will have their own relationship with their gender identity and define it differently.”
The struggle over the definition of “woman” is becoming increasingly apparent in women’s sports.
Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas has faced criticism for being able to compete and dominate in the women’s league. From being ranked 462nd in the country as a male, Thomas rose to prominence by becoming number one in the 500-meter freestyle as a female. Competitors and teammates of Thomas have expressed their concerns about the seeming advantage.
In the hearing, Blackburn responded to Jackson’s failure to provide a definition of “a woman” by criticizing Thomas’ award for being named first in the NCAA Swimming Championships.
“It demonstrates the risks of this progressive education that we are hearing about,” Blackburn stated. “Last week, a biological man was permitted to compete with a biological woman during the NCAA Swimming Championships and beat her, as an entire generation of young girls observed.”
To preserve the integrity of women’s sports, 28 Republicans signed a letter to the NCAA urging it to make biological men ineligible to compete in women’s events.
