Timberwolves and Lynx Honor Fake Woman, Leigh Finke

The Minnesota Lynx was crushed by the Connecticut Sun on Thursday night at Target Center in Minneapolis. During the game, the Fastbreak Foundation – the official community outreach organization for both the Lynx and the Timberwolves – honored transgender State Representative Leigh Finke as an “inspiring woman.”

Finke was born a biological male, and has identified as a woman in recent years. During his first term in the Minnesota Legislature, Finke gained notoriety for pushing extreme legislation like the genital mutilation sanctuary state bill. Finke has also blocked Action 4 Liberty on Twitter.

The Fastbreak Foundation posted their approval of Finke as an “inspiring woman” on their Twitter account, apparently not noticing the irony in their statement.


Few sports fans are begging for more Pride/political themes in their entertainment. Though the Lynx possibly has a more liberal bend in their fanbase, this joint promotion with the Timberwolves will undoubtedly upset basketball fans.

This endorsement is particularly toxic because of Finke's politics. This confused man wants to see more transgender mutilation surgeries for kids. He was also the sponsor of a provision that removes anti-pedophile language from Minnesota state statutes.

This promotion comes after the NHL and MLB have announced that they will recommend against pride-themed jerseys and memorabilia in future years. 

The Minnesota Lynx does not have many fans to lose, but the Timberwolves could certainly lose a dedicated fanbase due to their denial of basic biological realities.
