Seven sisters of the UW Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority joined “The Megyn Kelly Show” Monday to come forward and discuss their experience after their chapter accepted a 6’2″, 260-pound man named Terry Smith, 21, because he identified as a woman named Artemis Langford.

“It’s a weird, gut-wrenching feeling that every time I leave my room, I’ll walk past him in the hall in whatever setting that may be. And it’s never a pleasant encounter and that’s the scary part,” one of the sisters detailed. “This just goes to show that we need women’s spaces for that reason. Our house is our home.”

Another of the young women speaking out said, “It is really uncomfortable. Some of the girls have been sexually assaulted or sexually harassed. Some girls live in constant fear in our home.”

“Men are never allowed on the second floor of our house except for move in, move out,” she went on, contrasting their sorority house to dorm life. “We share just a couple of main bathrooms on the upstairs floor, but it is just us that lives there and it’s supposed to be a safe place we can go to rest our head at night.”

As previously reported, the sisters had filed suit against their sorority and council president Mary Pat Rooney for permitting the man into their spaces where he had repeatedly been seen visibly aroused while observing the young women in various states of undress, asking inappropriate questions about their anatomy and sexual activity.

“Everyone needs to be treated with dignity and respect but there’s a line and I think it’s been crossed,” the first girl spoke up again during the conversation with Kelly.

Another detailed, “All of the bathrooms are shared spaces…there are no private changing areas for when you shower, there are no locks on the showers and it’s just very open and vulnerable.”

She went on to state, “We lost quite a few members through this process,” before recounting her own consideration of resigning. However, she determined, “I refuse to allow subverting my rights as a women to cater towards the comfort of a man.”

Joining the young women on the podcast was their attorney Cassie Craven who explained, “There has been an exemption granted for him, for his safety but not for these young women.”

Headquarters “decided that the individual does not need to live in the house, even though that’s a requirement…this individual has gotten preferential treatment every turn of the way and we’ve seen that with the living situation,” she expressed and noted Smith “still comes to the house, still engages in dinners, still sits in a chair and watches the girls; all of the things that are not appropriate in light of what’s occurring here.”

Craven stated unequivocally, “We can’t allow woke culture to be the arbiter of what sisterhood is. It’s a shared experience. It’s growth and development. This experience is not doing this individual any justice whatsoever.”
