The decade's most triggering comedy
Enes Kanter Freedom suggested on Tuesday that he ought to put on a wig, change his name to “Enisha,” and try out for the WNBA in order to force the league’s hand when it came to the acceptance of trans-identifying athletes.
Freedom spoke with “America’s Newsroom” anchors Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino about the issue, suggesting that people might finally wake up and be outraged when they saw a biological male not only taking a team spot from a biological female but dominating in professional women’s sports.
Enes Kanter Freedom floats idea of throwing on a wig, renaming himself "Eneshia," and claiming he's a woman to force the WNBA to sign him to make an anti-trans athlete statement.

“Would that be fair?” Freedom asked. “I am seven foot, two hundred and seventy pounds, and if I decided to identify myself as a woman and decided to play WNBA, put on a wig and I change my name to — just say Enisha — would that be fair to all the women, you know, who were chasing their dreams since they were a little kid?”
“Where are all the women’s rights activists?” he continued. “Where are all the feminists? … It’s just very interesting why this should even be a debate.”
Freedom doubled down on his comments with an X post featuring a photo of himself, clearly photoshopped, wearing a wig and a smile.
“I’m identifying myself as a woman! Lol,” he posted. “From now on y’all can call me ENISHA Freedom. I’m 7 foot and 270 pounds biological male who wants to compete in women sports. Hey, @WNBA, are you hiring?”
I’m identifying myself as a woman! Lol
From now on y’all can call me
I’m 7 foot and 270 pounds biological male who wants to compete in women sports. 🤦🏻♂️

Freedom started the conversation with a post from his X account on Friday, where he made a similar suggestion.
Men don’t belong in women’s spaces.
Restrooms – Locker Rooms or Sports.
Is that when the outrage will begin?
Is that fair to all the women who spent their whole life…

“Men don’t belong in women’s spaces. Restrooms – Locker Rooms or Sports. Since I’m blackballed from the @NBA, should I put on a wig, identify as a woman and start dominating the @WNBA?” he posted. “Is that when the outrage will begin? Is that fair to all the women who spent their whole life chasing their goals? Where are all the Women Rights Activists and Feminists?!”
