Leigh Finke (Dem-66A) has gained national popularity as Minnesota’s first transgender legislator. His beliefs about his gender match his politics, as he has authored some of the most extreme legislation in St. Paul – among his proposals would make Minnesota a sanctuary state for youth genital mutilation.
On Friday, USA Today announced that Finke would be honored as Minnesota’s “Woman of the Year.”
If you think that a man being crowned Woman of the Year sounds insane, you are not alone. This is only the most recent example of a man stealing competition away from women. Another notable example is Lia Thomas of Penn State – an average male swimmer who transitioned in time to dominate the women’s swim league.
When it comes to sports, men have a competitive advantage over women due to excess testosterone and larger builds. Read about the transgender powerlifter who is now allowed to compete with women.
Though the political arena isn’t so much a competition as it is theater, Finke’s award signals to deeper issues within society. If national publications are willing to deny basic biological truths, the next generation of children will grow up into a confused and even sinister society.
The transgender legislator was present at Governor Walz’ press conference in early March, where two “transgender” children were paraded in front of cameras. There, Finke argued that “The situation is escalating too quickly against trans and gender-expansive people for us to not act.”
This is why Finke’s legislation is so extreme. HF146 seeks to undermine parental involvement in the lives of children. If a child shows a mere interest in the opposite gender, Minnesota courts would be allowed to intervene and ensure that they can receive the life-altering treatments and surgeries that leftists are advocating for.
But according to USA Today, making a mockery out of women and advocating for the mutilation of young women is cause for becoming “Woman of the Year.”
