“Only transgender women who’ve undergone a gender reassignment surgery are allowed entry,” the Swimming Association’s website stated.
This was a clear case of ladies with vaginas discriminating against ladies with penises.
Members of the University of NSW Student Representative Council released a statement describing the Association’s “outdated” definition of women as “disgusting”.
“Anyone who identifies as a woman … should have access to this space,” the statement said. “To our community, students, and staff at UNSW — your gender identity needs no validation from anyone but yourself.”
The students did not explain how a women-only pool remains a women-only pool if women are only what the guy in the bikini says they are.
“Trans women are women,” the students insisted, in what now passes for debate on university campuses; the aggressive repetition of mindless slogans as if it were reasoned argument.
Within 24 hours of the complaint, the historic women-only pool had become the progressive women-are-only-an-idea pool.
