Activists Corner Sen. Kyrsten Sinema in Bathroom, Viral TikTok's 'Couch Guy,' and Differences Between Men and Women

Pro-amnesty activists followed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into a ladies' room at Arizona State University over the weekend to demand that she support fellow Democrats' $3.5 trillion social spending bill.Video of the intruders lecturing Sinema, D-Ariz., from outside a closed stall door--while other women went about their personal business--quickly went viral."Yesterday's behavior was not legitimate protest," Sinema said in a public statement. "It is unacceptable for activist organizations to instruct their members to jeopardize themselves by engaging in unlawful activities such as gaining entry to closed university buildings, disrupting learning environments, and filming students in a restroom."The Constitution grants all Americans the right to peacefully protest and petition the government, but doing so inside a restroom and on camera left many raising concerns over lawmakers' privacy.On today’s edition of the "Problematic Women" podcast, we've got what you need to know about Sinema’s interaction with the protesters as well as the status of the $3.5 trillion spending bill backed by President Joe Biden and most other congressional Democrats.Also on today’s show,we discuss a viral TikTok video that raises concerns over the privacy of young people. Plus, over the weekend NASCAR fans joined a trend of obscene chants at sports events directed at the president. What does the situation tell us about today's political climate?We also explain the findings of a new study concluding that testosterone suppression isn't enough to level the playing field between men and women.

Troubling Twitter Censorship, Far Left’s Attempt to Erase ‘Women,’ and Government Control of Day Care

Twitter slapped a "sensitive content" label last week on a Daily Signal video report from 2017 on a mounted Border Patrol unit. The 4-minute video provides an inside look at why the Border Patrol historically has used horses.Twitter initially denied suppressing the video, but eventually admitted to censoring the content and lifted the block Monday. But the question remains, why would the social media giant put a warning label on a 4-year-old video featuring two members of the Border Patrol's Horse Patrol Unit in San Jose, California, discussing why horses enable agents to do their jobs?Twitter's action appears to be linked to incorrect reports that Border Patrol agents on horseback "whipped" illegal immigrants from Haiti as they crossed the Rio Grande River into Del Rio, Texas.The claims were made after photos and video images went viral last week showing agents on horseback using long reins to control their horses as they tried to prevent the migrants from crossing the border.The Border Patrol quickly debunked the notion that agents whipped migrants, and the photographer who took the photos in question said he did not witness any agents using whips.On today’s episode of the “Problematic Women” podcast, we discuss why Twitter blocked The Daily Signal's video and why the situation at the southern border remains a crisis.Watch the Daily Signal’s Border Patrol video here: watch more Daily Signal videos about the border crisis here: on today’s show, we break down two recent examples of the far left’s attempts to erase the word “women” for the sake of gender inclusivity. We also discuss why government-funded universal day care and preschool will not serve the best interests of families and children.And as always, we crown our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”

Why Are Americans Fixated on 'Gabby’ Petito Tragedy?

Unless you have no cable TV and no internet, you have likely heard about 22-year-old Gabrielle "Gabby” Petito.Petito was living the Instagram dream with her fiance, Brian Laundrie. The couple spent the past several months traveling through national parks and documenting their adventures on social media. But the picture-perfect story came to a tragic end when Petito was reported missing and subsequently found dead.Laundrie, 23, returned to his parents’ home in North Port, Florida, without Petito on Sept. 1, and Petito’s parents reported her missing Sept. 11. Eight days later, her remains were found in Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming.Laundrie is a person of interest in the case, but went missing Sept. 14 and is thought to be somewhere in Carlton Reserve, a 25,000-acre nature reserve near North Port.There's no denying that Petito’s story is tragic. What’s odd is the media’s near-24/7 coverage of the case. Major TV networks are devoting much of their time to the developing case even as thousands of illegal immigrants are encamped on our southern border, Congress debates multitrillion-dollar spending bills, and America faces diplomatic tensions with France.Much of the American public is deeply invested in Petito’s story. Why? Perhaps it’s a distraction from the domestic and international problems the country faces today. Or maybe we all see a bit of ourselves in Petito and wonder whether her tragic ending as easily could have been our own.On today’s edition of the “Problematic Women” podcast, we break down why America has become consumed with Petito’s story. Also on today’s show, we discuss a bizarre TikTok phenomenon and why American inflation is rising at a staggering rate. And as always, we’ll be crowning our problematic woman of the week.Enjoy the show!
