South African comedian, writer, producer, and political commentator Trevor Noah may have shown his cowardice with his response (or lack thereof) to Veronica Ivy, a trans activist he invited on his show.
Dave Rubin, for one, is thoroughly unimpressed with Noah’s “absolute inability to say what is true with any degree of conviction.”
Ivy, like many trans activists, launched into a nonsensical diatribe about why trans women are actually women.
“People like to say that it’s a complicated issue,” he said, “[but] I don’t actually think it is.”
“It all boils down to: do you actually think that trans women and intersex women are real women and are really female or not? And if you do, it's very simple — just stop policing who counts as a real woman,” he told Noah.
Ivy also claimed that there is a “history of racism” due to discrimination against “intersex athletes” who are typically “women of color from the global South.” Apparently, “white women's conceptions of femininity ... [are] being weaponized against trans people” in order to protect “the fragile, weak, cis white woman.”
Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense.
But does Trevor Noah throw the B.S. flag?
“There are many elements to what you said, which I appreciate,” he responded. “One thing that confuses me personally is it seems like we have discussions about who should participate in which category.”
“There are many who would argue (who are not transphobes): ... ‘But you have an unnatural advantage over [biological women] and that makes the sport unfair.’ How do you respond to that?” asked Noah.
“This idea that like, 'Oh, you're not a biological woman,' is false," Ivy responded.
“Well, I am a woman — that's a fact. I am female, so all my identity records, my racing license, my medical records all say female, right? And I'm pretty sure I’m made of biological stuff, so I'm a biological female as well,” he explained to Noah.
“So this question of 'do trans women have an advantage over cis women?' — we don't know. In fact, there's basically no published research on this question; however, there’s good reason to think that there isn’t,” he continued as Noah remained silent.
The glaring irony is that Veronica Ivy is a trans athlete who is a two-time world track cycling champion (in the women’s division, of course). But there’s no research to indicate that he had an advantage, right?
“[Noah] can't just defend what is obviously true,” says Dave. “It's fairly obvious to me if you got that guy in a room, he would say ... he wouldn't want his 5-year-old daughter competing against 5-year-old boys.”
“But, you see, he won't defend it on his own merit ... because he's just a servant of the machines,” Dave sighs.
