I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: feminism has come full circle. Women’s rights now belong to everyone. Even men. Can we be done with this phase of American history now?
USA Today just named Leigh Finke, a trans-identified, biologically male lawmaker, Minnesota’s “Woman of the Year”. USA Today apparently began this project to honor “local and national heroines who make a positive impact in their communities every day.”
Finke tweeted out the news of USA Today’s nomination, writing, “It’s a dramatic understatement to say that I am beyond honored to see my name among this list of honorees.” Along with photos of biological women.
“As an elected, I recognize that I just got here. The faith that has been put in me by my district, by the queer community, and by my colleagues at the capitol has been life-giving. I’ve only begun to fathom how much my life has changed, for the better, over the past year.”
As a lawmaker in Minnesota, Finke has been a fierce advocate for transing the kids. Finke sponsored a bill to make Minnesota a “trans refuge state,” which would legally protect parents who travel to the state to mutilate- I mean, affirm their child’s gender – when their own states have outlawed these, ahem, “medical” procedures. California adopted such a bill last year, and has subsequently experienced endless horrific weather events. Which I’m not so sure is a coincidence.
After the nomination, Finke gave an interview to the SC Times and included a message for trans youth: “I would tell them listen to yourself. The world can’t tell you who you are. You know who you are, and you should be true to that.”
“Trans liberation is upward flowing, all liberation movements flow outwards. Everyone will benefit from it and it’s worth committing yourself to.”
So thank you, feminists. You’ve truly outdone yourselves.
