Since 1886, McIver’s Ladies Baths have been operating in Coogee. For the past 135 years the term ladies has meant females, but not anymore. It is 2021 and it seems no-one is brave or smart enough to define the term woman or ladies.
Extremists, also known as gender activists, have successfully threatened reasonable people so much that even men with penises will be accepted as ladies these days– deny it and you will surely face penalties!
Overnight, the Randwick and Coogee Ladies Swimming Association, which operates the baths, attracted criticism for a response to a question on their website, which asked: "Are transgender women allowed?"
"Only transgender women who’ve undergone a gender reassignment surgery are allowed entry," the club stated.
The response - which has since been removed from the site - triggered opposition and confusion from social media users overnight, with one commenting on Facebook: "Genuinely, women's baths, how do you plan to enforce this policy? Will you be asking anyone you don't think looks sufficiently 'female' to pull their swimming bottoms down?"
By Tuesday afternoon, the club's website had amended the response to the question to say: "Transgender women are welcome to the McIver’s Ladies Baths, our definition for transgender is as per the NSW Discrimination Act."
According to the act, a transgender person is someone whose recorded sex is changed under law.
Instead of pointing out the scientific, biological reality the club caved to the activists insisting, “the pool provides a safe place for women of many ages, religions, and backgrounds" and "a sanctuary of healing, acceptance, and security".
Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith, said it was a joke, but not a funny one.
“These kinds of fiasco’s come about because politicians and public servants deny science and appease extremist ideology. They have rendered the terms ‘ladies’ and ‘women’ as completely meaningless. They promote the acceptance of males as women, even going to such absurd lengths as to such females can have a penis! It is insulting and dangerous to real women.”
“It is time to draw a line in the sand and define the terms once and for all.”
