Podcaster Megyn Kelly put the feminist group “Women’s March” on blast after the women-led movement made a nonsense claim that “trans women are women.”
The host of Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast took to Twitter Thursday and responded to a tweet from the official social media account for the Women’s March group that read, “Trans women are women. That’s it. That’s the tweet.”
“No they aren’t,” the former Fox News host tweeted to her more than two million followers. “There are massive differences between women and trans women.”
“We can be respectful to trans people while not abandoning reality,” she added.

Kelly’s comments were consistent with her recent takedown of the University of Pennsylvania when she called it “a disgrace” that UPenn nominated Lia Thomas, a biological male who identifies as a female, as NCAA “Woman of the Year,” as The Daily Wire previously reported.
“This is a disgrace,” the host explained in her monologue. “Lia Thomas is not a woman. Lia Thomas is a trans woman who lived the first 20 years of her life as Will Thomas, a man. She only decided to transition in 2020, after swimming three seasons as a middling competitor on the men’s team, ranking in the mid 500s. On the woman’s team, the very next year, ranked number one.”
The host laid out her case against the university, noting that UPenn’s biologically female swimmers “worked hard as young girls to make it in swimming, to make it to Ivy League swimming.”
“I mean, not for not nothing, but they swam with growing breasts, growing hips, more fat on their bodies, less upper body strength than their male competitors,” Kelly pointed out. “They swam with shorter legs … thinner and weaker muscles than the boys. They swam with periods, and cramps, and bloating.”
She concluded her segment, stating, “Lia Thomas is not woman of the year. That title belongs to one of the women who dealt with all the physical and emotional challenges and opportunities that come with being an actual woman … Not to a six-foot-three biological man who, within the last two years, declared that he was a woman. Period.”
