Top-rated SiriusXM podcaster Megyn Kelly lashed out at the feminist group “Women’s March” after the women-led organization made a nonsensical and biologically false claim that “trans women are women.”
“The Megyn Kelly Show” host took to Twitter Thursday to respond to a tweet from the official social media account for the Women’s March group that said, “Trans women are women. That’s it. That’s the tweet.”
Kelly, a former Fox News host, responded: “No they aren’t. There are massive differences between women and trans women.”
“We can be respectful to trans people while not abandoning reality,” she added.

The Daily Wire added:
Kelly’s comments were consistent with her recent takedown of the University of Pennsylvania when she called it “a disgrace” that UPenn nominated Lia Thomas, a biological male who identifies as a female, as NCAA “Woman of the Year.”
“This is a disgrace,” the host explained in her monologue. “Lia Thomas is not a woman. Lia Thomas is a trans woman who lived the first 20 years of her life as Will Thomas, a man.
“She only decided to transition in 2020, after swimming three seasons as a middling competitor on the men’s team, ranking in the mid 500s. On the woman’s team, the very next year, ranked number one,” Kelly continued.
The host went on to note in her case against the university that UPenn’s biologically female swimmers “worked hard as young girls to make it” in the sport,” to make it to Ivy League swimming.”
“I mean, not for not nothing, but they swam with growing breasts, growing hips, more fat on their bodies, less upper body strength than their male competitors,” Kelly pointed out. “They swam with shorter legs … thinner and weaker muscles than the boys. They swam with periods, and cramps, and bloating.”
She concluded her segment this way: “Lia Thomas is not woman of the year. That title belongs to one of the women who dealt with all the physical and emotional challenges and opportunities that come with being an actual woman … Not to a six-foot-three biological man who, within the last two years, declared that he was a woman. Period.”
Other women have lashed out at the decision to allow biological males like Lia Thomas to compete in all-female sporting events in the first place, with most claiming that it essentially ruins decades of progress that female sports advocates have fought for.
“It isn’t ‘inclusion’ that leads the Ivy League to pull stunts like this,” “Irreversible Damage” author Abigail Shrier commented regarding UPenn’s nomination of Thomas. “It’s misogyny – and utter contempt for the truth.”
“Academia speaks!” added Michael Doran, a senior fellow and director of the Center for Peace and Security in the Middle East at Hudson Institute.
“EVERY WOMAN IN THE NCAA MUST BOYCOTT,” writer Kimberly Morin declared. “They are pushing for MEN to ERASE WOMEN. If you allow it, they will continue and you will reap what you sow and you will AID in the DESTRUCTION of women’s sports.”
