The Presidential Medal Of Freedom is or should be, an exceptionally high honor awarded to an individual who has done something exemplary to deserve recognition.
Past recipients of this honor include authors, artists, businesspersons, politicians, athletes, and exceptional groundbreaking Americans of all kinds.
News broke Friday that Megan Rapinoe will be one of 17 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom this year.
Other recipients are Simone biles, Simone Campbell, Julieta Garcia, Gabrielle Giffords, Fred Gray, Steve Jobs, Alexander Karloutsos, Khizr Khan, Sandra Lindsay, John McCain, Diane Nash, Alan Simpson, Richard Trumka, Wilma Vaught, and Denzel Washington.
The Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian honor awarded in the US, usually given to those who have made “exemplary contributions to the prosperity, values, or security of the United States, world peace, or other significant societal, public or private endeavors.”
One might question, however, comments made by Rapinoe concerning political matters.
The call by some for transgender inclusion in women’s sports, such as outspoken Rapinoe, has had the expected backlash from those who know that there are only two genders, and they are very different from each other.
Of course, many in the gay and lesbian community disagree with Rapinoe’s support for transgender athletes competing against women, but that seems to be ignored.
High profile athlete Caitlyn Jenner, who was formerly known as Olympic medalist Bruce Jenner, has been outspoken on the absolute and obvious necessity of athletes competing with their actual, biological gender.
In a Fox News interview, Jenner stated, “We need to protect Women’s sports.”
Referring to biologically male swimmer Lia Thomas, Jenner stated in the interview, “She knows when she’s swimming she’s beating the competition by two laps. She was born a biological boy. She was raised as a biological boy. Her cardiovascular system is bigger, her respiratory system is bigger, her hands are bigger, she can swim faster. That’s a known.”
And, transgender inclusion in competitive sports has already been banned in many instances worldwide, as the wave of common sense flows around the world.
Swimming and Rugby are two of the sports quick to recognize the ridiculousness of men competing as pretend women.
Rapinoe has previously spoken out in favor of transgender athletes competing with actual women in competitive sports.
Previously, National Review reported that Rapinoe called for “absolute ‘trans inclusion,'” and that legislation separating women athletes and athletes pretending to be women is a “‘monstrous’ overreaction.”
Rapinoe called for “evidence” that ‘trans women’ are causing problems for truly female athletes in competition.
Outkick reported that Rapinoe receives the honor just a few days after declaring that overturning Roe v. Wade was a “violent onslaught on women’s bodies,” while being completely unable to declare what a woman actually is:
“I just can’t understate how sad, and how cruel this is. I think the cruelty is the point. Because this is not pro-life by any means. This way of thinking, or political belief, is coupled with a complete lack of motivation around gun laws, it comes with pro-death penalty, it comes with anti-healthcare, anti-prenatal care, anti-childcare, anti-pre-K, anti-food assistance, anti-welfare, anti-education, anti-maternity leave, anti-paternity leave.”
“This is not pro-life. And it’s very frustrating and disheartening, and frankly just infuriating to hear that be the reason that people are wanting to end abortion rights, and end this vital aspect of a woman’s — not only healthcare and general basic safety in this country, but her bodily autonomy, and the right to freedom, and the pursuit of happiness and liberty, is being assaulted in this instance. And it’s just incredibly disheartening.”
Outkick continued that she also recently expressed in an interview covered by Clay and Buck that parents concerned about biological boys or men competing in women’s sporting events should realize that their girl’s sporting career doesn’t actually matter:
“I would encourage everyone out there who is afraid someone’s going to have an unfair advantage over their kid,” by someone she means a transgender athlete, “to really take a step back and think what we’re actually talking about. We’re talking about people’s lives. I’m sorry. Your kid’s high school volleyball team just isn’t that important.”
Apparently, Rapinoe’s fierce advocacy for women’s rights on abortion apparently does not extend to the right for women to compete on a level playing field, since “Your kid’s high school volleyball team just isn’t that important,” according to her.
Outkick wrote that strangely, The White House does not appear to be cognizant of her incessant hypocrisy and lack of intellectual consistency, instead describing her as a “prominent advocate for gender pay equality, racial justice, and LGBTQI+ rights.”
In reality, Rapinoe is receiving this award because she publicly declares her allegiance to the correct set of progressive principles. That often requires hypocrisy or dismissive, patronizing statements towards people concerned with fairness and biological advantages, Outkick stated.
She excels at both, and so receives one of the country’s highest honors.
It’s an embarrassment to the Medal of Freedom that someone so shamelessly committed to inaccurate activism will join recipients who are actual American heroes, Outkick declared.
