The National Hockey League is being dragged on Twitter for upholding the patently absurd dogmas of radical leftist gender ideology.
“The NHL is proud to support this past weekend’s Team Trans Draft Tournament in Middleton, Wisconsin. This was the first tournament comprised entirely of transgender and nonbinary players, with around 80 folks participating! #HockeyIsForEveryone #NHLPride,” the NHL tweeted on Tuesday.
Someone responded to the NHL’s tweet by writing, “So, men playing on womans team?”
The NHL replied by claiming, “Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Nonbinary identity is real.”
Transgender women are biological men who identify as women, while transgender men are biological women who identify as men.
“Amazing to watch sports leagues that rely on extraordinary performance by biological men (as well as the viewership of disproportionately male audiences) parrot the idiotic anti-biological garbage of the woke coterie,” tweeted conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, the editor emeritus of the Daily Wire. “If this is true, why aren’t there any trans men in the NHL? They’re real men, after all. Must be terrible and vicious discrimination,” he added.
“The NHL becomes the latest organization to totally debase itself for the sake of pandering to people who aren’t their customers and never will be,” conservative commentator Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire tweeted.
“If ‘trans women are women,’ shouldn’t the NHL completely support eliminating the sport being divided by men and women? If there’s no biological difference (lol), then only have hockey. No men’s hockey. No women’s hockey. Just hockey. How will that work out? Oh, yes, just men,” tweeted David Hookstead of OutKick.
“Would you like some non-sensical horse puckey with your professional ice sport? NHL was getting ratioed for its denial of reality so it is no longer allowing responses,” the Federalist editor in chief Mollie Hemingway tweeted.
