El American’s Idiocy of the Week has starred anti-American soccer player Megan Rapinoe, who, trying to defend the woke fad of allowing transgender athletes to compete against women, has belittled female athletes by saying that “We’re talking about people’s lives. I’m sorry, your kid’s high school volleyball team just isn’t that important.”
Megan Rapinoe has not been able to resist and has returned to compete in what she does best: trying to prove that she is the world’s number one female athlete in being woke.
As in this competition to be the most woke athlete the biological sex has no influence, Megan Rapinoe fights on equal terms with sportsmen the likes of LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick or Lia Thomas.
So far, Megan Rapinoe has racked up impressive records of wokeness, in disciplines such as kneeling against racism during the national anthem, or in calling for equal pay between men’s and women’s teams, but Rapinoe hadn’t quite managed to break through…until now.
As Democrats have invented a new woke discipline, that of advocating for the inclusion of transgender athletes in women’s sports, Megan Rapinoe has seen in this modality her opportunity to excel and get the boost she was missing.
Idiocy of the week: Megan Rapinoe wants to be the woke world champion.
Rapinoe told Time magazine in an interview that she is “100% supportive” of “trans inclusion” and reminded critics of these measures that “they need to understand that sport is not the most important thing in life.”
It is a bit contradictory that Megan Rapinoe tries to play down the importance of sports, when in fact she is just showing a very competitive mentality, typical of athletes.
She wants to win in everything, including being the most progressive and egalitarian. When she demands equal pay with men, she doesn’t ask them to earn less, she asks them to earn herself more. When she plays soccer games, I suppose she doesn’t want them all to end in a draw -more egalitarian than that-, but she wants to win them.
However, she wants to deprive the rest of women of the pleasure of winning by supporting transgender people who systematically crush their female rivals thanks to their physical abilities. And when the girls complain about this injustice, Megan Rapinoe mocks them.
As Rapinoe said in the interview, in which she also dared to show her philosophical and literary gifts, “Life is the most important thing in life.” For her it is “monstrous” that transgender people are forbidden to compete against women, because it ruins their lives. Transgender people, that is. Apparently, Megan Rapinoe doesn’t give a damn about the sports careers and lives of the girls who are ruined. After all, she’s all grown up and was lucky enough to develop her sporting life when only women competed exclusively.
Perhaps Rapinoe should be reminded that a few years ago her national women’s soccer team lost a 5-2 friendly match to Dallas FC’s under-15 boys, or that the Brazilian women’s national team lost a 60-minute match to Gremio of Porto Alegre’s under-16 youth team 6-0.
But well, if Megan Rapinoe still hasn’t seen the injustice for women that trans inclusion in sports means, she has an ideological blindness of championship. And you can’t compete against that.
