Wellesley College, located just west of Boston, is known for two things: being extremely liberal and only admitting female students. One of my favorite videos of the late Phyllis Schlafly is a recording of a speech on feminism that she delivered at Wellesley a few decades ago. Not only was the speech itself fearless and fact-filled, but the question and answer time afterward showed Phyllis at her very best.
However, Wellesley is clearly not at their best today as they struggle with their gender identity policy. Presently, both women and men who claim to be women are allowed to attend the supposedly all-girls school. The question they struggle with now is whether women who claim to be men should be allowed to enroll. The present policy excludes women who claim to be men, which they refer to as “trans men,” from admission, but the student body took a non-binding vote saying that they want those “trans men” to be allowed to enroll. Their reasoning is that some women who believe that they are men will want to attend Wellesley so badly that they will hide their inner manliness in order to be accepted. Is that confusing enough for you?
Here we see another hypocrisy in the prevailing position of the left. “Trans women are women” has been the rallying cry as they take over women’s sports, restrooms, and every other women-only space. Yet, now they claim that so-called “trans men,” who are actually women, should be able to claim both the privileges of being a man and the privileges of being a woman? This doesn’t make any sense by the left’s own corrupted logic, much less by reality.
In truth, the hardcore leftists don’t really care about facts. All they want is to destroy every women-only space in America. It doesn’t matter to them how they do it. Wellesley already accepts men who claim to be women, but even that is not enough for the radicals. The lesson to be learned here is that you can never appease the left. If you give them an inch, they will not stop until they have taken the whole mile. Don’t budge from objective truth, because it’s a slippery downhill slope from there.
