“Wokeness” is slowly making sports unbearable.
Every part of American society has been touched by progressive politics.
But an embarrassing championship parade just exposed one liberal lie.
The Left has become shockingly radical over the past five years.
One of their most fringe ideas is that there are no biological differences between men and women.
This has led to the insane notion that men can get pregnant, and males should be allowed to compete in female sports.
Along similar lines, leftists have tried to argue that women professional athletes should get paid the same as their male counterparts, and the only disparity in interest among fans is due to marketing.
But a WNBA championship parade showed that there simply isn’t organic interest in the sport.
The Chicago Sky recently won a championship, and their parade through the city was noticeably underpopulated.
There were more people on the parade buses than in the streets.

WNBA players are arguably the most woke athletes in professional sports.
While the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team has promoted progressive political ideas such as the mythical gender wage gap, WNBA players have been even more militant.
Members of the Atlanta Dream—as well as the WNBA commissioner—called out team owner Kelly Loeffler when she was running against Raphael Warnock for the U.S. Senate in Georgia.
Loeffler’s players openly endorsed Warnock.
The WNBA also protested in support of Jacob Blake whose shooting at the hands of the police triggered deadly riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
WNBA players wore shirts on Blake’s behalf even though he allegedly raped his child’s mother whom he had been accused of sexually assaulting previously.
The Left only promotes slogans like “believe women” when it suits their political aims.
WNBA players have also complained about pay disparities between their league and the NBA.
One WNBA complained that Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James made orders of magnitude more than she did.
This is delusional thinking.
James is one of the greatest basketball players of all time, and has worldwide brand recognition.
Not a single WNBA player comes close.
It also doesn’t help that a good boy’s high school basketball team could beat a WNBA team.
The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team has lost to boy’s high school teams on multiple occasions.
There are marked differences in average size and strength between men and women.
This is an obvious truth that has been known for thousands of years, but progressives are doing their best to alter reality.
But biological facts remain stubborn.
No matter how hard the Left push, the WNBA—which loses money and is subsidized by the NBA—is not going to become a thing.
