What’s Current: Seven Women are suing the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority for admitting a trans-identified male

  • Seven women are suing the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority for admitting a man into its sorority. Artemis Langford (previously known as Terry Smith) became the first trans-identified student to be admitted into a sorority at the University of Wyoming in 2022.  The lawsuit states:

“After national sorority officials disregarded the secret voting process required by Sorority rules and after extensive behind-the-scenes direction from national Sorority officials and alumnae advisers – the Sorority inducted a man, Terry Smith, as a member.”

The lawsuit also states that “Smith is 21 years old, is 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs 260 pounds,” adding, “No other member of Kappa Kappa Gamma has comparable size or strength.” Langford is “sexually interested in women” and apparently has “while watching members enter the sorority house, had an erection visible through his leggings.”

The complaint says Langford has “not undergone treatments to create a more feminine appearance.”

  • The trans activist who threw tomato juice at Posie Parker in Auckland has still not been charged, despite having been identified and interviewed in the media. Earlier this week, Eli Rubashkyn said she has not been contacted by police, but is ready to face consequences if necessary. “I am so proud I dropped the juice, and I would do it again, and again – if I have to go to prison for one year, I am more than happy.” In a statement, police said they made “several attempts to locate a person of interest in relation to a publicized assault at Albert Park on Saturday.”

“That person is aware that police would like to locate and talk to them about the incident, and ask them to come forward so the matter can be dealt with appropriately. There is currently no warrant to arrest this person.”

  • South Western Railway launches UK’s first “intersex-inclusive Pride train,” painted to represent the LGBTIA+ flag, with the tradition rainbow stripes as well as white, pink, and blue stripes to represent the trans flag, black and brown ones for “people of colour,” and the purple circle “to represent intersex people.”
