Megyn Kelly spoke out Thursday against a biological adult male named Christynne Woods who cited an OB-GYN in his defense of why he should be allowed to change in a YMCA female locker room with minors.
During Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast, the host was speaking with conservative commentators Mary Katharine Ham and Bethany Mandel about a story involving 17-year-old Rebecca Phillips, who spoke out against her local YMCA, saying she was “terrified” when she exited the shower and saw a fully naked adult male with genitals uncovered.
At the start of the segment, Kelly played a clip from a recent city council meeting in which Woods defends his behavior by claiming he had a right to be in the locker room because he has a gynecologist. Kelly said that a women’s relationship with her OB-GYN is important medically as she blasted Woods for pretending to have such a relationship.
“Why is it making my blood boil that Christynne claims to have a gynecologist?” Kelly shared. “It’s making my blood boil … Part of it is, I just actually went to the gynecologist. Actual women have to go to the gynecologist once a year. When you just delivered a baby, you spend your life with your gynecologist and your OB-GYN.”
The former Fox News host said it’s never really pleasant going to the gynecologist: “The exam doesn’t feel particularly good. The pap smear is very uncomfortable. No one looks forward to that.”
She then listed the concerns women have when they go to see their OB-GYN, such as “ovarian cancer or other kinds of cancers,” getting a breast exam, and “constantly worrying whether they’re going to find a lump and how that could go there.”
“There are things that are particular to that exam and that relationship that no f***ing man is ever going to have,” Kelly blasted. “So that guy doesn’t have a gynecologist. That guy has a hole that a surgeon created at best. I’m sorry, it’s like infuriating because there are things that make women special.”
“And there are things that we’ve overcome and that we must overcome as women in order to thrive in this life,” she added. “Whether it’s the threat of sexual violence, or, you know, being attacked as we walk home from college bars to our dorms, or the fears that you have when you go to the gynecologist or when you are pregnant with a baby.”
“All those things, they’re baked in,” the host continued. “And it’s part of what makes women so incredible and strong and you can’t just become one and take all of our things because you did or did not have a surgery or you put on a dress. It doesn’t work like that…”
