The Iowa Standard was quoted by Ben Shapiro on Wednesday during his podcast. Shapiro discussed the gender identity push being made by radical activists across the country and highlighted the Pella Aquatic Center story.

He talked about the situation taking place in “of all places, Pella, Iowa.”

“According to The Iowa Standard, she shared the facility with boys and men of all ages. The incident happened on June 16…” (You can find Shapiro’s full podcast here.)

He continued reading from The Iowa Standard’s article, which can be found here.
