And given that the WNBA can’t even get people to watch their games, the answer is no.
Can WNBA Players Take Down a U.S. Senator?
Sen. Kelly Loeffler poured gas on her feud with WNBA players by filing a bill targeting trans woman and girl athletes. But running against the WNBA could backfire on the Atlanta Dream co-owner.
On Sept. 22, Atlanta Dream co-owner and U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) fired the latest salvo in her months-long battle with WNBA players. She introduced a bill that would effectively ban trans girls and women from playing publicly funded sports, potentially affecting thousands of youth, high school and collegiate athletes nationwide. Previously, Loeffler had clashed with WNBA players over their support for Black Lives Matter and Say Her Name, a campaign spotlighting Black women killed by police.
But with the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act, Loeffler could not have picked an issue closer to the hearts of WNBA players, many of whom are LGBTQ.
If Loeffler doesn’t win reelection, it will because the Republican ex-governor was more popular, not because a few freaks from a minority of a minority of a minority are unhappy with her very popular view that boys in dresses should not be permitted to compete with girls in the latter’s sports.
