Biological Man Won The International Women Of Courage Award…

( – President Joe Biden’s administration honored a biological male with an International Woman of Courage Award on Wednesday as part of the White House’s Women’s History Month celebration.

Alba Rueda is a man who identifies as a woman and is one of 11 “extraordinary women” Biden’s administration honored at an awards ceremony.

First Lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken hosted this year’s International Women of Courage Awards ceremony. The ceremony honors “extraordinary women from around the world who are working to build a brighter future for all,” according to the State Department.

Rueda is a prominent transgender activist from Argentina and serves as the country’s Special Envoy for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship.

Rueda is reportedly responsible for getting Argentina’s Transgender Labor Quota Act enacted into law, which requires one percent of public sector jobs in the country to be reserved for transgender individuals.

Rueda has hopes to “establish an LGBTQI+ foreign policy agenda and mainstream it into the various negotiation fora, including into multilateral fora and bilateral relations as well as represent the Global South,” according to the State Department.

“In Argentina, Alba Rueda is a transgender woman who was kicked out of classrooms, barred from sitting for exams, refused job opportunities, subjected to violence, and rejected by her family,” Biden’s Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks said as Rueda received the award. “But in the face of these challenges she worked to end violence and discrimination against the LGBTQI+ community in Argentina.”

But in response to Biden presenting Rueda with the ‘Women of Courage’ award, social media users have accused the First Lady of ‘encouraging the diminishment of women’ and ‘erasing women’.

Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who has been a vocal critic of President Joe Biden, tweeted: ‘It’s International Women’s Day – a good time to remember that the Democrats can’t even tell you what a woman is.’ 

Sanders has previously said that Biden ‘is the first man to surrender his presidency to a woke mob that can’t even tell you what a woman is’.

Radio host Dana Loesch, a former spokesperson for the NRA, tweeted: ‘Nice of FLOTUS to encourage the diminishment of women on “international women’s day”. Erasing women is abusive.’  

Meanwhile, Karoline Leavitt, the Republican nominee for the House in New Hampshire who lost against Democrat Congressman Chris Pappas in November, tweeted: ‘Why are the Democrats working overtime to push the trans agenda? 

Other Twitter users said it was ‘disgraceful’ that Rueda, a transgender woman, received a ‘Women of Courage Award. 

‘There is a war on women,’ one said, while another wrote: ‘Imagine this sort of thing is a real slap in the face to real women nation wide.’ 

Another Twitter user wrote: ‘Honest question to my followers: Are you okay with this? Are you alright with a biological man getting this award over a biological woman.’
