Where’s Helen Reddy?

I Am Woman! Or Am I?

Naples, FL — “If I had to, I can do anything, I am strong, I am invincible, I am Woman…”

Long before her death in 2020, singer Helen Reddy penned those words, and the meaning seemed unambiguously clear to most everyone.

“However, now, it appears that there is much confusion about what a woman is. Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown-Jackson could not answer the question during her confirmation hearing. Oops, did I use the proper pronoun? ” observes Allen West, Executive Director of the American Constitutional Rights Union, in his latest OPED for

There is plenty to celebrate and honor regarding our women. West continues, “We just witnessed record attendance for the NCAA Women’s Final Four, held right here near my home in Dallas, Texas. The television viewing audience broke records as well, and I was one of them. I was riveted watching LSU, Iowa, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech in both semi-final and final games. It was a full-court marvel, and the LSU women scored 102 points against Iowa in the championship game. I will admit, the Women’s NCAA championship game was more thrilling than the men’s, where UConn defeated San Diego State.”

But these days, Helen Reddy would be left scratching her head. “However, in this day and age, we now have biological males — cowards who struggle as male athletes — claiming to be female and competing against women. The most noticeable of them all is William Thomas, who, as a male swimmer, was 462nd in the nation. Suddenly, he competes against female athletes and wins NCAA championships. Last month, Women’s History Month, no less, Thomas was recognized and has even had a Sports Illustrated cover … To top this, we now have an accomplished female swimmer, Riley Gaines, who actually tied Thomas but did not get the placement, being attacked by biological males wearing dresses.” Strange times indeed.

“Helen Reddy once sang, ‘I am woman, hear me roar.’ Now we have biological males roaring and masquerading as being better women than women. Being the dad to two women, married to a woman, and son of a woman, well, that is just FUBAR!”
