'Democrats don't care about women and girls': Feminists protesting Lia Thomas say they are 'disenfranchised' from Democratic Party

A group of feminists staged a demonstration outside the women's NCAA swimming championships last week to protest transgender swimmer Lia Thomas from the University of Pennsylvania competing against biological women. Many of the feminists noted that they had been supporters of the Democratic Party. However, they felt betrayed since they believe the Democrats have abandoned women and girls.

Save Women's Sports – a "coalition that fights to preserve sex-based eligibility for female sports" – organized a protest outside Georgia Tech's athletic center in Atlanta, Georgia. Amy E. Sousa – a self-proclaimed "engaged embodiment expert" and "radical feminist" – voiced her displeasure with the Democratic Party.

"I am a lifelong registered Democrat who ultimately feels politically homeless," Sousa told Fox News. "With the whole Biden election, I began to feel more and more disenfranchised from Democrats as a party, and I began to feel more and more that they did not represent my beliefs or my views."

"Feminism has become so muddied, much like the term Democrat has become so muddied. It's practically lost all meaning," Sousa added.

Another Save Women's Sports advocate shared a similar experience as Sousa.

"I was historically liberal," the activist explained. "I would say I'm politically homeless now because I don't think the Democrats care about women and girls."

Another member of Save Women’s Sports revealed that progressives pushed her away from the Democratic Party because of her views on biological men competing against females.

"I always voted as a liberal, from 18 to 39," the feminist said. "I registered Republican in 2020 after two politicians told me they did not want my vote because of my stance on the rights for women and girls."

"They wanted to put men in prisons and men on sports teams and in my daughter's school, so that's why I decided I cannot be a part of this party anymore — that doesn't even recognize my sex class," the feminist declared.

One of the feminists added, "I know a lot of historically liberal people, especially parents, who have felt like they needed to walk away from the Democratic Party. I don't know who they're going to be voting for in the next elections. I think that we're going to have a lot of people walking away really."

Others have been outspoken against Thomas competing in the women's NCAA swimming championships. Kellie-Jay Keen – head of the organization Standing for Women – went viral last week for brilliantly shooting down a pro-trans argument.

Thomas — a biological male who identifies as a female — won the women's 500-yard freestyle event on Thursday at the NCAA championships with the fastest time this season. When Thomas went to the podium to be announced as the winner, there were several people in the crowd booing.
