Sorority Shames Members Who Sued Over Trans ‘Sister’ Changes Definition Of Woman
A University of Wyoming sorority faces some heat after insisting that the term’ woman’ is ‘unquestionably open to many interpretations.’
This all started in March of this year, when seven sorority sisters from the Kappa Kappa Gamma sued the sorority, claiming that the sorority violated its rules by admitting the transgender person. After the lawsuit was dismissed due to anonymity, six sorority members refiled the case in May.
In the refiled lawsuit, they claimed that Artemis Langford, a 6’2, 260-pound transgender person in this case, was let into the sorority in September 2022. Since he was let in, the man has allegedly been ‘peeping at (the other girls) while visibly aroused,’ the man was frequently caught with ‘an erection visible through (his) leggings.’ The man also made the girls extremely uncomfortable since he allegedly sat on a couch for hours while ‘staring at them without talking.’
The sisters, who claim they live in fear due to the trans man being present, also claim that the organization changed the definition of a woman to allow trans member Artemis Langford – referred to under the male pseudonym Terry Smith in the suit- to join in September 2022. This lawsuit comes amid a reaction from Kari Kittrell Poole, the sorority’s executive director, who said the members’ complaint contains ‘numerous false allegations.’ She never specified which allegations were false.
The sorority’s motion to dismiss claimed the lawsuit was considered ‘frivolous’ since its only apparent objective was to kick the man out of the sorority for ‘their own political purposes.’ The motion for dismissal also claims that the sorority sisters do not have a right to be in a sorority that excludes transgender women, encouraging the scared women to resign if the sorority’s stance was ‘too offensive’ for them.
The motion continues, claiming that the ‘plaintiffs request the Court to insert itself into this controversial political debate and declare that a private organization can only interpret the term’ woman’ using Plaintiffs’ exclusionary definition of biologically born females,’ adding on that ‘Kappa defines its membership in its position statement adopted in 2015 as individuals who identify as women,’ and that the ‘Plaintiffs cannot identify any bylaw, standing rule, or policy that prohibits Kappa from taking this position, and the term is unquestionably open to multiple interpretations.’
This part of the motion refers to a section of the filed lawsuit that states:
An adult human male does not become a woman just because he tells others that he has a female ‘gender identity’ and behaves in what he believes to be a stereotypically female manner. The Fraternity Council has betrayed the central purpose and mission of Kappa Kappa Gamma by conflating the experience of being a woman with the experience of men engaging in behavior generally associated with women.
Reactions were passionate, with one user talking about the solution to the problem.
There is such an easy solution to all of this … control their income – control the outcome. Pull your kids from these schools and stop buying products from woke companies. Vote with your DOLLARS.

Another user said a ‘scorched earth’ policy regarding this issue should be implemented.
This trans extremism irritates me to no end. So perhaps I am venting. But I think there needs to be a total scorched earth policy. If they have to leave the sorority. Other sororities need to find reasons to be too busy or meeting with other groups or having the flu and exclude…

It is unclear if the motion to dismiss will be accepted.
