Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) exposed the dishonesty of gender ideology on Wednesday by asking Human Rights Campaign president Kelley Robinson one simple question.
At a Senate Judiciary Committee
on the civil rights of "LGBTQ+ Americans," former collegiate swimmer Riley Gaines explained in unequivocal terms the competitive advantage that biological men have over biological women in sports like swimming.
Going through puberty causes irreversible advantage that no matter the training, no matter the diet, that no matter any alterable change you can make will overcome that male advantage. Especially in sports like swimming, where lung capacity matters so much, even something as silly as throat size. Men have, on average, a 40% larger throat, which sounds like it's nothing, but when you're gasping for air, that 40% larger throat makes a huge difference in athletic success, not to mention height.
Cruz then turned to Robinson and asked, "Do you agree with Ms. Gaines that there is a difference between women and men?"
"If the question is about trans women —" Robinson began, before Cruz interjected.
"I'm just asking: Is there a difference between women and men?" he repeated.
But instead of answering the question, Robinson invoked NCAA rules, apparently to defend the time when trans swimmer Lia Thomas
was given a trophy over Gaines
when they tied in a competition.
"OK, I'm gonna try again," a frustrated Cruz responded. "Do you believe there is a difference between women and men? It's a yes-no question. Do you believe there's a difference?"
"Well, I think that we're talking about this case with the NCAA —" Robinson began.
"No, I’m asking a question: Do you believe there's a difference between women and men?" Cruz asked again. "Most people could answer this very simply. I'm curious if you are willing to do so."
Robinson claimed she was "absolutely" interested in answering the question, but she wanted to add "context to this conversation that we're having."
"Is that a yes? I'm trying to get a yes or no. I'm not trying to get a speech," Cruz fired back. "Is there a difference between women and men?"
Robinson responded by acknowledging that "definitions for biological sex" exist, but immediately tried to differentiate sex from gender. She never answered Cruz's question.
