Riley Gaines Vows to Fight the New 'War on Women' in 2024 Amid Backlash

Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer were constantly accusing Republicans of waging a "war on women" due, primarily, to the GOP's objections to abortion, but the swimmer-turned-activist says the shoe is now on the other foot.Democrats, she tells Newsweek, are waging a war on women due to their adherence to what she sees as a transgender agenda, and she predicts it's an issue that will be front and center in 2024 as the presidential election shifts into high gear.And she says that no amount of death threats and protests—both of which she endured in 2023—will prevent her from speaking her mind, no matter how often her detractors call her some version of an anti-trans bigot."I do believe it's my mission as a Christian to spread God's word, so I block out a lot of the noise," she said.Her claim is that reducing the word "mother" to "birthing person," as President Joe Biden's administration has done on several occasions, or the word "woman" to "menstruating people," as Democrats like Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have done, is proof of her claim of a war on women."Can you imagine men being reduced to 'erection-havers' or 'sperm-producers' or another biological function? Men wouldn't put up with it," Gaines said.She also said the plethora of men who have transitioned to women and have earned "woman-of-the-year" type awards is further proof of a war on women: USA Today, for example, named Minnesota House Representative Leigh Finke one of its 2023 women of the year and in 2022 it gave the same award to Rachel Levine, the U.S. assistant secretary of health for the U.S.
