NHL crawled to wake up, promoting the trans hockey tournament

The National Hockey League took some heat with a tweet on Tuesday promoting a transgender and non-binary hockey tournament, and a follow-up comment stating, “Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Non-binary identity is real “.

The tournament in question, the Team Trans Draft Tournament, took place over the weekend in Middleton, Wisconsin, and featured only trans and non-binary players On Tuesday, the NHL’s official Twitter account shared several photos from the tournament along with a statement showing support for the event.

But when someone commented on the photos saying, “So, men playing on the women’s team?” the NHL account responded: “Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Non-binary identity is real.”

“The locker room situation must have been a nightmare,” observed Tom S. Elliott, founder of Grabien Media.

“The NHL here is trying to overtake the NFL as the worst running sports league on planet Earth,” Elliott added. another tweet.

“Turn off professional sports. Walk away and never look back,” Jesse Kelly added.

“The NHL should definitely let a biological woman line up against Alexander Ovechkin and see how that theory works out for them,” Greg Price. he tweeted.

“This is offensive to everyone who believes in science,” Chris Loesch published. “Really stupid for the NHL to get into this.”

“If trans men are men, why don’t they just play in a men’s league?” @midnightmitch he askedfollowed that up with a series of tweets mocking the NHL.

First, he pointed to the fact that as soon as the comments got away from them and started going sideways, the NHL turned off replies to the tweet.
