Transgender ideology has become so ingratiated in every aspect of society that talk shows like ABC News’s “Good Morning America” are now celebrating reigning “Jeopardy!” champion Amy Schneider’s string of victories as a win for all women, despite the fact that Schneider was born a male.

On Tuesday, The Daily Wire reported that Schneider was crowned “Jeopardy’s” highest-earning “female” ever after winning  $706,800 on the popular television contest.

Schneider was congratulated by the show’s previous record-setting woman, Larissa Kelly:

“Well, it was fun to hold a Jeopardy record for a few years…but it’s been even more fun to watch @Jeopardamy set new standards for excellence, on the show and off,” Kelly tweeted. “Congratulations to Amy on becoming the woman with the highest overall earnings in the show’s history!”

To that, Schneider responded, “Thanks so much, I’m honored to be in your company, and I look forward to someday watching the woman who beats us both!”

After Schneider continued dominating “Jeopardy!” on Wednesday night, GMA took it upon themselves to congratulate the individual on Thursday’s episode.

“Well, we’re going to turn a story that’s a little more uplifting hopefully. Jeopardy! champion Amy Schneider in a league of her now this morning. She won for the 21st straight time on Wednesday, the most by a woman just days after taking the record for highest all-time earnings for a woman,” GMA’s host said. “Earlier this year, Schneider, she made history as the first transgender contestant to make the Tournament of Champions, she still has a long way to go though to catch shot Ken Jennings and his 74 game winning streak. But it has been fun to watch.”

“She’s well on her way, but I’ve just got one question to ask. Who run the world? Girls!” another host said in reference to the Beyonce song titled “Run the World (Girls).”

Schneider has now won $806,000 in total on the gameshow.

Schneider began identifying as a woman after dressing up as one for a Shakespeare play:

“Fun fact about my Shakespeare experience: the trigger that eventually resulted in my coming out was playing Flute in Midsummer [Night’s Dream]. There’s a play-within-a-play at the end, and Flute is forced to play a woman, and dressing up as a woman every night felt shockingly right to me.”

Answering the question of when she first started living as Amy, she said: “To an extent, there’s a lot of different answers you could give to when it started. You could say it was my whole life, you could say it was this time, it was that time.

“I would say one key moment was actually I was in a production of Midsummer Night’s Dream and I was playing Francis Flute, who is required to play a woman in a play within a play at the end. I was required to put on a dress every day for the show and I was like, ‘Hmmm, this is interesting!'”

Conservative author Jim Hanson pointedly slammed the media and others who call Schneider a “woman,” noting that it is “disinformation.”

“Disinformation,” Hanson tweeted. “They have made the jump from Trans woman to just woman To the biologically false claim of female #Science (when it fits the narrative).”
