Unfortunately, this is not satire.
The list of companies clamoring to defenestrate themselves in an attempt to pander to the ever-expanding Rainbow Crowd continues to grow.
We’ve seen it with beer companies Anheuser-Busch and Miller who are now paying the price because of the woke ads for their lite beer lines.
We’ve seen a bunch of women’s brands like Tampax, Ulta Beauty, and Oil of Olay partner with controversial transgender-identifying male TikTok influencer, Dylan Mulvaney, which is a complete insult to their customer base.
This week, it was Adidas’s turn.
Adidas has launched a new women’s swimwear range for the brands ‘Pride Collection’ featuring male models wearing sports bras and women’s swimsuits.

Adidas this week launched its “Pride 2023” swimwear collection, advertising bathing suits on its web site under the “women’s” section with the help of a model that appeared to be male…
…The new line by South African designer Rich Mnisi, dubbed “Let Love Be Your Legacy” and released ahead of Pride Month in June, is “a celebration of self-expression, imagination and the unwavering belief that love unites,” according to Adidas’ site.
In a press release on Monday, Adidas said the line “is inspired by a love letter Mnisi wrote to his younger self,” serving as “a rallying cry for active allyship to empower and champion the LGBTQIA+ community.”

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Wait a second there… did Adidas just say LGBTQIA+ community??? I’ve been reliably told by the Prime Minister of Canada that it’s 2SLBGTQIA+ because the indigenous concept of “two-spirit” — which has been retroactively progressive-ized in order to shove it under the Rainbow Umbrella — takes precedent over any other group. Somebody should contact the Human Rights Campaign since Adidas is clearly failing at their attempt to appease the Rainbow Mafia that wants to gay all of the things.
Now, far be it from me to fact-check the New York Post, but the report isn’t entirely correct. The ad campaign includes two men modeling the women’s one-piece bathing suit.
The still image is of a black man with cornrow braids and no tattoos, the other in the video is a black man with several tattoos and his hair is pulled into a ponytail on top of his head. He also sports chest hair.
The non-tattooed guy with the cornrows angles his narrow hips to show off the bulge between his legs.
They hired two models for the women’s swimsuit and they’re both men.
It must’ve been too difficult to find a woman willing to wear that ugly thing. It’s either that, or it doesn’t fit women properly unless it’s a 6’2″ woman with narrow hips, a 27-inch waist, a 34-inch chest with no breasts whatsoever, and a distinctive bulge between her legs — then the size 6 will fit like a glove!
How this helps women who have curves without any frontal bulge, I have no idea.
Apparently, other women are in the dark on this as well.
An interesting point was made by women’s civil rights attorney Nancy Hogshead on Twitter noting that the men that are chosen to model women’s clothing have low body-fat and feed into that recurring trend that women should be rail-thin and flat-as-a-board.
What do @adidas and @Nike have in common? Both their trans-identified male models are too thin & too low body-fat to have a child. It’s just more advertising that glorifies an impossible aesthetic & makes us wrong. #NotBuyingIt#WomenHating #WomenInSports https://t.co/v9Vmdwf2oO pic.twitter.com/xFNRt58SO8

They must be using male models now since the whole “body positivity” movement has made using thin women as models unpalatable.
Riley Gaines, the swimmer-turned-activist that lost her title to transgender-identifying man Lia Thomas (formerly Will Thomas), has hit the nail on the head — it’s the intentional erasure of women to appease the fragile feelings of gender-confused men and fetishists who get off on dressing up as women.
I dont understand why companies are voluntarily doing this to themselves. They could have at least said the suit is "unisex", but they didn't because its about erasing women. Ever wondered why we hardly see this go the other way?

In an appearance on Fox News, Gaines notes how the models deliberately pose themselves to show off the bulge.

“Notice now they don’t have women who take the identity of a male advertising men’s clothes? We are only seeing this go one way.”

Is it really too much to ask that women’s clothing be modeled by women in the Year of Our Lord Twenty-Twenty-Three?
With the Gender Radicals, apparently the answer to that is, “Yes.”
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
