Popular Post HipKat Posted March 9 Popular Post Share Posted March 9 Twitter laughs, groans as Jill Biden gives biological male Women of Courage award: 'Up your game, ladies' Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted, 'It’s International Women’s Day – a good time to remember that Democrats can’t even tell you what a woman is' First Lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken were slammed Wednesday for presenting a biological male from Argentina with an award for women on International Women's Day. This year's annual International Women of Courage Awards ceremony at the White House honored "11 extraordinary women from around the world who are working to build a brighter future for all," according to a State Department press release. Argentinian Alba Rueda was introduced at the ceremony as a "transgender woman who was kicked out of classrooms, barred for sitting for exams, refused job opportunities, subjected to violence, and rejected by her family. But in the face of these challenges, she worked to end violence and discrimination against the LGBTQ plus community in Argentina." Alba Rueda currently serves as Argentina’s current Special Envoy for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship. Commentators across Twitter balked at the idea of a person who had been born a man being bestowed with a women’s award. Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, R-Ark., said, "It’s International Women’s Day – a good time to remember that Democrats can’t even tell you what a woman is." "Nice of FLOTUS to encourage the diminishment of women on ‘international women's day.’ Erasing women is abusive," host of The Dana Show, Dana Loesch, tweeted. "International Women's Day: Not just for women anymore," conservative Twitter personality Andrea Katherine wrote in reply. "Apparently men are a lot better at being women than women are. Step up your game, ladies," Townhall columnist and radio personality Derek Hunter joked. "We are not a serious country," Common Sense Society's Christopher Bedford responded. Claremont Institute president Ryan P. Williams tweeted, "The jokes write themselves…" "Why are the Democrats working overtime to push the trans agenda?" news commentator and former congressional nominee Karoline Leavitt asked. RedState author and author Buzz Patterson wrote, "Nothing screams ‘International Women of Courage Award’ like a dude." "This is disgraceful and unacceptable!"

The State Department said Rueda had "actively campaigned to change the name of the National Women’s Conference to the ‘Plurinational Conference of Women and Lesbian, Cross-Dresser, Transgender, Bisexual, Intersex and Non-Binary Persons' to include diverse, dissident, and racialized identities.’" 4 Quote “There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind, never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
