First it was bathrooms. Then locker rooms. Then spas, schools, gyms, and women’s shelters. Then it was sports – from high schools all the way to pro and Olympic levels. Now it’s beauty pageants.

Is there any space that still belongs solely to biological women?

The trans movement is determined to destroy every line between real womanhood and their political imaginings. That means dismantling every space that once belonged to women, no matter how hard women may have worked to create it. The fact that women and girls are still fighting to succeed in those spaces doesn’t matter: the transgender agenda demands that men be able to freely invade and take advantage of them.

The latest victim is the Miss Universe pageant. The Netherlands has made a mockery of the pageant by naming a man – 22 year-old transgender “woman” Rikkie Kollie – as Miss Netherlands.

Kollie, who says his parents recognized his trans-ness as a toddler – which raises a host of other questions – isn’t hiding the agenda behind his/her participation in the pageant. Kollie styles him/herself as a pioneer for trans rights. In Kollie’s mind, trans pageant queens is the future.

We don’t have to accept this. 

People have begun to push back against the trans agenda, recognizing the absurdity behind it. More importantly, they see how trans “rights” have become a tool to erase women and undo the progress women have made.

Let us join together to make a statement in defense of womanhood. If you haven’t already done so, please add your signature to CAAP’s “I Am Woman” Declaration, then share it with your friends and family.

We must make a strong statement for the meaning of womanhood. This is not about targeting the trans movement. It’s about upholding what it means to be a woman.

After you’ve signed and shared the declaration, please consider making a donation to CAAP as well. Even a small gift can make a big difference.

You don’t have to be a fan of Miss Universe or pageants to understand how damaging it is to bring trans ideology into that competition. Won’t you join us in defending womanhood by signing the “I Am Woman” Declaration, then making your gift to CAAP? The only way to put a stop to this takeover of our culture and institutions is to speak out.
