Congressional Republicans are attempting to make biology factual again by introducing a resolution in both chambers on Thursday that uses biological sex to define terms like “man”, “woman,” “father,” and “mother” in clear opposition to the transgender dysphoria sweeping the nation.
The bill is known as the “Women’s Bill of Rights” and seeks to protect women’s rights in places like locker rooms and bathrooms that have been increasingly infiltrated by biological males who have decided they “feel” like a girl.
“The Democrats are erasing women and the spaces that are uniquely ours,” House Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz) said in a press conference to announce the bill on Thursday.
“It’s pretty simple. It acknowledges the biological differences in men and women, highlights the importance of differentiating between men and women involved for the purposes of protecting sex-segregated activities and organizations, and affirms the importance of using ‘mother’ and ‘father’ in written law to protect families,” Lesko noted.

Three Republican senators introduced the bill in the Senate including Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Mo.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas). There were 11 co-sponsors of the House version.
“The radical Left has launched an attack on biology because they want to put themselves above God and they want to brainwash our daughters with their woke-ism,” Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.) said.
Today, we introduced legislation to defend our daughters by defining gender as we have known it since Genesis. We are made in the image of God as man or woman, and no woke ideology can change that. pic.twitter.com/WL6lXhM5pR

Many agreed with the elected official’s thoughts, noting that a biological definition was based on “reality.”
In other words, on basis of reality

And somehow that is controversial?? Unbelievable.

Transgender advocates were pretty ticked that conservatives would use visual body parts to determine gender and believe the true intent of the resolution – that would not even have the force of law – is to simply ignore that transgender people exist.
“The Republican resolution is another in a long line of cynical attempts by anti-LGBTQ extremists around the country to erase transgender and nonbinary people from our communities,” said the policy director for the National Center for Transgender Equality Olivia Hunt, according to The Hill.
“More than a century of science has shown us that biology is far more complicated than what the authors of this resolution describe, and that trans and nonbinary people’s genders are just as real and just as valid as everyone else’s. Science simply doesn’t support this attempt at making our existence a ‘culture war,’” she added.
The definition of “woman” recently eluded Supreme Court Nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson who refused to provide a definition of the word, claiming that she wasn’t a biologist and therefore was unqualified to define the term.
“Do you agree with Justice Ginsburg that there are physical differences between men and women that are enduring?” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) asked the leftist nominee.
Jackson danced around the inquiry, stating that she was “not familiar with that particular quote or case, so it’s hard for me to comment.”
The conservative senator quickly followed up, “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman?’”
“Can I provide a definition? No,” Jackson responded. “I can’t.”

Just before Jackson’s non-answer, an abortion-rights activist put out in the world that she believed men could get pregnant and have abortions.
Rep. Dan Bishop (R-N.C) similarly requested a definition of what “a woman is.”
“I believe that everyone can identify for themselves,” abortion-rights nonprofit Avow Texas director Aimee Arrambide responded.
“Do you believe that men can become pregnant and have abortions?” Bishop prodded.
“Yes,” Arrambide said.
