The National Hockey League went woke just before Thanksgiving and it went over about as well as expected.
“Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Nonbinary identity is real,” the league tweeted from its official account.
The comment was made in response to someone who questioned the NHL’s original post, which featured a “Team Trans Draft Tournament” in Wisconsin.
The NHL was outratioed so badly that the league limited who could reply to the tweet.
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro wrote:
“Amazing to watch sports leagues that rely on extraordinary performance by biological men (as well as viewership of disproportionately male audiences) parrot the idiotic anti-biological garbage of the woke coterie. 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.”
Matt Walsh said the NHL has become the latest organization to “totally debase” itself in order to pander to people who aren’t their customers and never will be.
OutKick’s David Hookstead asked if the NHL believes trans women are women, then why divide the sport between men and women at all.
“If there’s no biological difference (lol), then only have hockey,” he wrote. “No men’s hockey. No women’s hockey. Just hockey. How will that work out? Oh, yes, just men.”
