The Biden Administration is on the forefront of elevating women in their midst, regardless of biology. And on International Women’s Day they decided to take things to the next level. So, how did the Biden administration decide to celebrate? Keep watching to find out more!
On International Women’s Day, First Lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken were slammed on Twitter Wednesday for presenting an award for women, born a man, from Argentina.
According to a press release from the State Department, this year’s International Women of Courage Awards ceremony at the White House honored “11 extraordinary women” from around the world.
Argentinian Alba Rueda, who was born a man – 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.”
The idea that a person born as a man could receive a women’s award upset Twitter commentators.
Arkansas Governor 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.”
Host of The Dana Show, Dana Loesch, tweeted, “Nice of FLOTUS to encourage the diminishment of women on ‘international women’s day.’ Erasing women is abusive.”
Another Twitter user added, “International Women’s Day: Not just for women anymore.”
And news commentator and former congressional nominee Karoline Leavitt asked, “Why are the Democrats working overtime to push the trans agenda?”
The U.S. wasn’t the only laughingstock of the world on International Women’s Day, however.
Also championing “transgender women” on the holiday was Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who tweeted, “This year’s theme, Every Woman Counts, is a reminder that all women, from all ages and walks of life, have a place in every aspect of Canadian society. With a disturbing recent rise in anti-transgender hate here in Canada, we reiterate today that trans women are women and we will always stand up to hate whenever and wherever it occurs.”
It’s clear that on International Women’s Day, the Biden Administration went above and beyond to push their political agenda. To see the White House awarding a ‘woman of courage’ award to someone born a man proves just that. The gesture simply showed that the current administration has no qualms about replacing biological women and ignoring the achievements that women have accomplished over the years. Hopefully, come election day, women everywhere will remember this moment and raise their voices about how they felt this week at the ballot box in 2024.
