Suburban women, especially moms, who were turned off by President Trump’s personality in 2020 could turn away from Democrats in 2022 and 2024 because of the Left’s radical agenda against biological women.
Democrats always have had the feminist vote because of issues like the right to kill your child in the womb at any time and workplace rights issues. However, the Left abandoned women in favor of trans ideology by trying to eliminate women-only spaces such as bathrooms and sports teams. Biden’s acting Office of Management and Budget director replaced women with “birthing people” in the 2022 White House fiscal year budget proposal. The Left is erasing women and all the wonderful things they do while expecting us to go along with it.
The most obvious example of the Left abandoning women is in sports. Biological men who are suffering from issues with their gender are getting on women’s sports teams and smashing records. Lia Thomas attends the University of Pennsylvania and has lived life as a biological man until recently and competes on the women’s swim team. Thomas gloated after winning the 200 freestyle at the University of Akron Zippy Invitational, “That was so easy, I was cruising” and “At least I’m still No. 1 in the country” in front of teammates.
One teammate had the courage to speak out saying, “Well, obviously she’s No. 1 in the country because she’s at a clear physical advantage after having gone through male puberty and getting to train with testosterone for years. Of course, you’re No. 1 in the country when you’re beating a bunch of females. That’s not something to brag about.” Thomas isn’t a real winner anyway because a true champion is humble and doesn’t brag about his/her successes.

What sane mom wants a person born as a biological male competing in sports against their daughter? Parents who aren’t woke want equal opportunity for their daughters, not equity which is equality of outcome. It’s unfair and poses safety risks too. Your gender doesn’t matter in a chess competition, but it sure does on the women’s wrestling team. It shouldn’t be ok for any parent to have their daughter compete against a biological male in a sport like that.
Women rely on sports scholarships like men. What’s to stop biological males from taking them from women? Our universities are the most woke institutions and where these destructive ideas come from so the last thing they want is to not be “diverse, inclusive, and equitable.” Right now, they fear the backlash from the Left the most if they don’t give a scholarship to a biological male for a female sport, but that’s starting to change because people are waking up.

Girl’s bathrooms and other female-only spaces are under attack too. The Daily Wire broke a horrifying story from Loudoun County, VA where a “gender-fluid” boy wearing a skirt raped a girl in the girl's bathroom. The boy was convicted on two counts of felony rape and the school board silenced the allegation. The Left didn’t want this story broken because it hurt their transgender bathroom agenda. The school board also didn’t prohibit the boy from attending another school where he raped a second girl.
This issue should be an easy political win for Republicans. The problem is most Republicans suck at politics and won’t capitalize on this chance to win new voters. They will be too afraid to get called bigots and anti-trans. That’s why primary races are more important than ever and the weak need to be thinned from the herd. Republicans want to be the defenders of truth, tradition, and Judeo-Christian values, but most don’t act like it when it’s crunch time.

The Left claims to be on the side of “marginalized groups,” but they are making women into one. You can give transgender people the sympathy they deserve and treat them as human beings without erasing female-only spaces. No person suffering from gender dysphoria deserves abuse, but womanhood doesn’t need to get sacrificed at the altar of trans. Women and girls need their own spaces from biological males. Only the Left would have the hubris to erase biological truth.
Republicans once owned the suburban women demographic. George W. Bush had the “security moms” in 2004 so it’s possible for them to come back to the party. Some women will never vote Republican because of the abortion issue, but there could be some on the fence who don’t like female-only spaces and opportunities for their daughters disappearing. I don’t agree with the Republican Party on every issue and women voters don’t need to either. Their primary voting issue should be the daughters they have instead of the ones they don’t.
