Senator Cynthia Lummis Booed and Heckled by U. Wyoming Students After Saying There Are Two Sexes

“Even fundamental, scientific truths such as the existence of two sexes, male and female, are subject to challenge these days”

Wyoming Republican Sen. Cynthia Lummis spoke at the University of Wyoming’s commencement ceremony this week.

When she mentioned that there are two sexes, students in the audience began to audibly boo and heckle her.

Unfortunately, Lummis apologized for this.

Mead Gruver of the Associated Press reported:

Wyoming senator booed for sex identity remarks at graduation

U.S. Sen. Cynthia Lummis apologized Monday after getting booed and heckled for remarks she made on sexual identity during a University of Wyoming graduation speech.

A first-term Republican from deep-red Wyoming, Lummis said in Saturday’s speech in Laramie that human rights are derived from God but that government seeks to redefine many of them.

“Even fundamental, scientific truths such as the existence of two sexes, male and female, are subject to challenge these days,” Lummis said.

She paused and smiled while many in the crowd responded with boos and heckling.

“And I challenge those of you,” she continued. But she didn’t complete that thought, saying: “I’m not making a comment on the fact that there are people who transition between sexes.”

This video is cued to start at the 49:22 mark. Just press play:

The Oil City News has the details on the apology:

A spokesperson for Lummis responded to a request for comment Sunday, with the senator saying through a statement that she was apologizing to those who felt “un-welcomed or disrespected” by the comments.

“My reference to the existence of two sexes was intended to highlight the times in which we find ourselves, times in which the metric of biological sex is under debate with potential implications for the shared Wyoming value of equality,” the statement read.

“I share the fundamental belief that women and men are equal, but also acknowledge that there are biological differences and circumstances in which these differences need to be recognized. That being said, it was never my intention to make anyone feel un-welcomed or disrespected, and for that I apologize. I have appreciated hearing from members of the University of Wyoming community on this issue, and I look forward to continuing this dialogue.”

Cynthia Lummis has a Bachelor of Science in biology. How’s that for irony?

That’s the republican party for you. Apologizing for telling the truth.

    First Cheney, now in her last 6 months as an elected GOP RINO….and now Lummis…say goodbye Cynthis, you’re toast!

But there are. None of these people should be graduating if they don’t know that basic FACT.

    jmccandles in reply to UJ. | May 18, 2022 at 8:20 am

    A do over as they failed to learn and one might think by the university level they should have known this plain fact.

Never explain, never apologize. We just keep treating this insanity as if it is legitimate. Stop it!

Worthless.

There are more than two sexes. We know this because:

1. Ten year study by top biologists confirm it

2. Some kids made it up at school

Goose-stepping, narcissistic fascistic thugs. As manifestly idiotic and irrational as a person denying the existence of electromagnetism, gravity and Relativity.

Narcissistic and totalitarian Dumb-o-crats are the neanderthals of our age.

The madness of the spineless public figures who apologize to these ludicrous jackboots.

Someone once told me, that you can be book smart that doesn’t make you intelligent.

    In many ways IQ is a measure of memory and calculation speed. IQ is a very powerful tool. But IQ doesn’t make you right about things. If you start from bad assumptions you get to correct answers only by mistake. No matter how “smart” you are.

We live in a time of great delusions and self deceit. How many sexes are there now — 6,000,000? She should not have apologized for stating an obvious biological truth of life. And the students should know better than to follow the woke lemmings off of the cliff.

That apology removes all sympathy I may have had for her over the incident and makes me doubt that WY has a good senator in her.

Politics is POLITICS, you are very much representing a side and yes it can and will get heated if there isn’t consensus in the nation (which there isn’t).

If you can’t stand heckling you are in the wrong business in the senate.

The students behaved horribly (more like middle school students than adults to be blunt) but senator coward was worst and she changed her position to the leftist one on account of being heckled.

By doing that she commissioned a thousand more of these incidents making her much worst than any peer pressured teen trying to fit in by adding their own yelling to a crowd of hecklers.

What’s the big deal? You can become a Supreme Court Justice and not know what a woman is.

There are as many sexes as there are stars in the galaxy. Sex is a very fluid concept, so it is best to carry a towel when discussing it.

Wyoming for God sakes

Never apologize

Never

    Another infected university. The birds and the bees know more about reality than woke kids. It boils down to X’s and Y’s kids…. something you have no control over.

Let them invite him and see how their feelings get coddled

(Not an endorsement of him, his doctrine or organization but this one commentary was good )

I’ve watched her questioning in some hearings and thought she may have a chance to move up the senate ladder, after this she slipped down a few steps in my view.

Partly resulting from allowing the idiots to blur the distinction between “sex” and “gender”.

“Transition” is a myth. Men don’t turn into women – all you get is mutilated men.

There is no provision for “its” in the Constitution! You are who you are at birth. Stop this insane madness and stay with gender specific as identified at birth! There are only two sexes with specific and different chromosomes!

healthguyfsu | May 17, 2022 at 2:18 pm

Lame that she apologized….there goes the neighborhood.

The brain-washing is well and good at U. Wyoming.

Agree not one should pass even basic biology.

i weep for the future””

Unless you can alter a person’s DNA, they cannot transition. Sex chromosomes are what they are, and they will not change no matter who many hormones you pump onto them, or what you cut off or graft on. Sex is an immutable characteristic and anyone who can’t grasp that needs to take a basic biology course.

Never, ever apologize for telling the truth

Binary sex: male and female. Binary sex-correlated gender [attributes]: masculine and feminine, respectively. And a transgender spectrum, where trans refers to a state or process of divergence from normal.

‘a statement that she was apologizing to those who felt “un-welcomed or disrespected” by the comments.’

I’m not required to respect somebody just because he mutilates his or her face with ink or metal, and I’m likewise not required to respect somebody just because he or she cross-dresses or voluntarily modifies their body.

It only took five seconds of booing for her to show that she has no balls.

She should have brought one of the hecklers up to debate the biology of the chromosomes. How to show how stupid is really stupid!

Lummis did not apologize for what she said. She stays with it but only apologizes that some were offended – as she knew they would be. She wishes to continue the discussion. Very clever! Let’s see if those stiff necks can deal with that.

Some people are simply cowards — they’d apologize for casting a shadow. We need legislators with guts, who will stand up for verity rather than political correctness.
