The mainstream media’s orchestrated effort to promote the so-called inclusion of transgender individuals has resulted in massive blowback from biological women who feel threatened or slighted by being forced to share formerly female-only spaces with biological men.
This cultural debate has largely focused on gender-specific sports and public facilities such as bathrooms and locker rooms. One recent example, however, sheds light on how college sororities have become a battleground for the trans agenda.
About a year ago, the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority at the University of Wyoming accepted its first transgender pledge with a majority vote of its members. Since then, however, Artemis Langford has faced accusations of spying on the female members and even becoming visibly aroused upon watching them change.
Earlier this year, a number of current and former KKG members filed a lawsuit against the biological male, described in one report as standing 6-foot-2 and weighing 260 pounds. The case laid out allegations against Langford, including evidence of an online dating profile indicating a desire to be matched with women and testimony about “peeping” on sorority members in various stages of undress.
Members have also shared that they felt pressured to support the admission of a transgender sorority “sister” out of fear that they would be castigated as transphobic if they voted in opposition.
The lawsuit was rejected in August in a decision that came about four months after a judge determined that anonymous complainants would have to come forward publicly in order to advance their case. In his final ruling on the matter, U.S. District Court Judge Alan B.
Johnson concluded that since the sorority did not provide a definition for the once-obvious term “woman,” the court would not weigh in on the matter.
Despite all of the allegations, however, a recent Washington Post article used female pronouns to describe Langford, whom it portrayed as the victim.
“Right-wing pundits portrayed her on national television as a predator — as a perverted man who faked his way into a sorority to leer at women,” the author complained. “Death threats followed. Strangers began stalking her. Police assigned extra patrols to the sorority house.”
The article went on to allege that sorority members behind the lawsuit “shot Artemis a look of disgust” when on campus.
Reactions to the Post’s report included excoriations from a number of conservative pundits.
Sorority girls were uncomfortable with the idea of sharing their house with a 6'4, 240 lb man who got erections while watching them change.

“He’s a man who joined a sorority to satisfy his sexual fetish at the expense of girls’ safety and comfort,” declared podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey. “The testimonials of the sorority members, detailing the sexually invasive questions with which he harassed them, make that clear. Journos once again siding with the predators.”
