By Justin Katz | December 15, 2021 |

Understandably the text and numbers provided in news stories about the record-setting run of a male swimmer identifying as a female in Ivy League competitions are kind of abstract to most people.  Matt Walsh provides video of Princeton’s trans superstar lapping the competition: Just to show you how absurd this is. Here’s the trans swimmer…

We can probably expect outcomes like that described by Hank Berrien in the Daily Wire to become more and more common: In November, a University of Pennsylvania swimmer who swam for the men’s team for the previous three years swam for the women’s team, dominating the competition.

By Justin Katz | May 20, 2021 |

Having high-school-aged daughters in this day and age, I’ve heard the issue of pay equity for female soccer players come up from time to time, in and out of a school-project context.  Curiously, I’d never before heard the detail that Ashe Schow reports for The Daily Wire: … U.S. District Judge R.

Mike Stenhouse and Ken Block
