Watch Megyn Kelly Go Off After Male Argues To Be In Girl's Locker Room At YMCA
When it comes to the debate over gender, there is one thing that is crystal clear: biological men should not be allowed to use female locker rooms, and we need to ensure that our women and girls are protected. This was highlighted recently when 17-year-old Rebecca Phillips was confronted by a male adult in the YMCA female locker room.
On her Sirius XM show “The Megyn Kelly Show,” Megyn Kelly addressed the story and played a clip from a recent city council meeting in which Christynne Woods defended his behavior by claiming he had a right to be in the locker room because he has a gynecologist.
This infuriated Kelly, who said, “Why is it making my blood boil that Christynne claims to have a gynecologist? It’s making my blood boil...Part of it is, I just actually went to the gynecologist. Actual women have to go to the gynecologist once a year. When you just delivered a baby, you spend your life with your gynecologist and your OB-GYN.”
She went on to list the worries that women have when they go to the OB-GYN, such as “ovarian cancer or other kinds of cancers,” getting a breast exam, and “constantly worrying whether they’re going to find a lump and how that could go there.”
Kelly then delivered an emotional argument about the importance of the OB-GYN and what it means to women. She said, “There are things that are particular to that exam and that relationship that no fucking man is ever going to have. So that guy doesn’t have a gynecologist. That guy has a hole that a surgeon created at best. I’m sorry, it’s like infuriating because there are things that make women special.”
“And there are things that we’ve overcome and that we must overcome as women in order to thrive in this life,” she added. “Whether it’s the threat of sexual violence, or, you know, being attacked as we walk home from college bars to our dorms, or the fears that you have when you go to the gynecologist or when you are pregnant with a baby.”
Kelly is absolutely right. The relationship between a woman and her OB-GYN is something that should be respected and protected. It is a place for women to go to feel safe, to find answers to difficult questions, and to discuss the fears and worries that come with being a woman. The fact that a male adult would even suggest that he has a right to be in the female locker room because he has a gynecologist is appalling and shows how little he understands the importance of the OB-GYN to women.
We need to be better about protecting our women and girls, and that means not allowing men in female locker rooms. Let’s make sure that women and girls are safe and that their experiences are respected and valued.
