Recently, conservative Talk Show Host Candace Owens called out feminists for not standing up against woke policies that negatively impact women’s sports. Emboldened, at the NCAA swimming finals, a British feminist confronted a “transgender activist who is a biological male,” telling him not to use women’s spaces,” according to a report in the Daily Wire.
Noting the unfathomable logic of Ivy League alumni, Madeleine Kearns of National Review reported:
“At the NCAA swim finals, Kellie Jay Keen [took] on a transgender activist who lived nearly 50 years as a man, fathered three children, and now says ‘I’m a mother.'”
Kearns continued: “In case you missed it, at the NCAA swimming championships on Thursday, the English women’s-rights activist Kellie Jay Keen got into a poolside argument with Schuyler Bailar, a Harvard alumnus and the first transgender-identifying (biologically female) NCAA Division I swimmer to compete on any team.”
Keen is the founder of Standing for Women. The group’s website states: “This campaign is to focus specifically on the word woman and other female language that clearly defines women and our rights. The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds for promoting the fight back to this global assault of women.”
In confronting Bailar, Keen said:
“On the basis of the comfort and dignity of girls and women, I’m asking you — telling you, please do not use women’s spaces. It makes them feel uncomfortable.”
Bailar responded lamely, “My girls and the other women I am with, are very comfortable with me in the bathroom and the locker room.”
Speaking forcefully, Keen replied, “Fortunately, I am not your daughter and my daughter is not your daughter … she would feel very uncomfortable.”
Seeing the debate was being lost, Bailar moved to disparage: “I am not here for a debate … I would ask you to please call off your dog,” Bailar sniped, sparking anger from those who could hear the conversation.
“I beg your pardon,” Keen said sharply, before pressing further, “I’m asking you as a mother: do not use female spaces. It makes women and girls feel very uncomfortable.”
The transgender activist began to respond: “As a mother, I am very —.”
“How dare you, you are not a mother,” Keen interjected, obviously ignorant that a Harvard Panel has declared that “not all who give birth are women,” as a nearby person shouted at the transgender biological male:
“You never birthed your children, you are not a mother!”
Last week, Keen’s non-politically correct comments with another progressive NCAA swim competition spectator went viral. When watching 22-year-old trans swimmer Lia Thomas dominate women’s events, Keen said:
“I’m a woman, and that is not a woman.”
The progressive, male, spectator took issue with Keen’s assessment and snarked, “Let me ask you, are you a biologist?”
“Oh my God,” Keen said, “don’t be ridiculous. I’m not a vet, but I know what a dog is. … You rely on stupid arguments because you don’t have an argument.”
The video, as of Monday morning, has 1.4 million views.
The Daily Wire reported this interchange after “Thomas crushed the competition on Thursday,” winning the NCAA Women’s Swimming Championship 500 yard freestyle:
“Lia, how did that performance measure up to your expectations coming into this meet tonight?” the reporter asked Thomas.
“I didn’t have a whole lot of expectations for this meet, I was just happy to be here, trying to race and compete as best as I could,” Thomas answered.
“You’ve undoubtedly been under the spotlight over the past few months, how have you been dealing with that, and reasoning with everything?” the reporter followed up.
“I try to ignore it as much as I can,” Thomas said, “I try to focus on my swimming, what I need to do to get ready for my races, and just try to block out everything else.”
“What did that race mean to you?” the reporter asked.
“It means the world to be here, be with my two best friends and teammates, and be able to compete,” Thomas ended the interview.
