The war on women continues on college campuses. The Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority chapter at the University of Wyoming chose to support a man joining its all-female sorority rather than to support and protect its members.
In August, a federal judge appointed by President Reagan ruled that a man cosplaying as a woman to get into the sorority should be allowed to do so. The male student claimed to be a transgender woman yet his behavior was very creepy to the female sorority members living in the house on campus. They did not feel safe with a male student in the house who watched as they got dressed and was reported to be physically aroused as he watched them.
When he was admitted to the sorority last fall, about seven sorority members filed a lawsuit against that decision. U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson noted that the male was admitted by a vote of the university’s chapter membership. He also did not define a woman and noted that the sorority is a private organization.
The male student is 21 years old, 6 feet, 2 inches tall, and weighs 260 pounds. He has a profile on Tinder where he seeks women. He’s a staff writer for a local paper. What could go wrong?
Fast forward to this week. A story came out that two Kappa Kappa Gamma alumnae have been kicked out of their sorority for speaking out against admitting men into the sorority. Independent Women’s Forum has come to the aid of the alumnae.
Last week, Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority alumnae who have been integral to the fight to stand up for sisterhood and keep sororities female were kicked out of Kappa Kappa Gamma by the national leadership, effective immediately. The two alumnae – Patsy Levang and Cheryl Tuck-Smith – for over a half-century, have been committed to Kappa Kappa Gamma, remaining involved and engaged, staying true to their sisterhood and shared Kappa values.
IMF is appealing this in the Tenth Circuit.
Esteemed past Kappa Kappa Gamma National Foundation President, Patsy Levang, said: “My heart was saddened when the current six council members voted me out, however, I will not be quiet about the truth.”
Long-time member and active contributor, Cheryl Tuck-Smith, said: “I was hurt when I was terminated as a member of KKG, but also disturbed that KKG has become a political tool rather than an organization that promotes women. My dismissal simply spurs me on to educate others about the dangers of DEI which in reality does not support diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
“Kappa claims to value honesty and to embrace differences. But once it heard honesty it did not like, Kappa shattered every sorority and American value to silence these alumnae,” said Senior Fellow at Independent Women’s Law Center, May Mailman. “Instead of punishing dedicated and caring sisters, Kappa leadership should revoke their memberships, as they are the only ones in violation of Kappa’s bylaws.”
May Mailman is working with Kappa Kappa Gamma plaintiffs in Westenbroek v Kappa Kappa Gamma. She has been advising the alumnae members in their correspondence with Kappa national headquarters.
It is Kappa Kappa Gamma’s failure to protect single-sex spaces, like the sorority, and women’s rights to privacy and safety. The sorority promises privacy and safety in its governing documents. Instead, this chapter has chosen to take part in cancel culture and retaliate against two longtime active alumnae.
Men can call themselves anything they wish to call themselves. That does not mean that all those around them are obligated to go along with their cosplay. There is something wrong with the fact that suddenly so many allegedly educated people can no longer define a woman. Sororities were founded as single-sex organizations to provide space for women, the same as fraternities which were founded as single-sex spaces for men.
In this case, the male who was admitted to the sorority and given access to the sorority house before he was scheduled to move into the house on campus, is a male. There has been no physical transition to change his outward appearance. There is nothing that will change his chromosomes. It is as if he woke up one day and decided to apply to a sorority. Maybe he does it because he is a writer and thinks it is a good story for him to report. It doesn’t matter what his reason was to do this. He shouldn’t be allowed to change the sorority. Shame on the woke sheep members of the sorority who voted in favor of his membership.
This is a way to cancel women in society. This male student takes the spot of a female sorority member who applies to live in the house on campus. As a parent, would you want your daughter living with a male student who appears to need some mental health care? It is hard not to think he is taking advantage of the woke culture on campus and exploiting these young women to his advantage.
