Breitbart editor and homocon Milo Yiannopoulos has made a name for himself by using his megaphone to spread hate, but he stooped to a new low during a recent speaking engagement at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
While the sold-out event was billed as “Master Baitors: The Leftists Keeping America’s Race War Alive,” Yiannopoulos spent part of his speech maligning transgender people in general, and one UWM student specifically, Media Milwuakee reports.
After complaining about the school’s “Just Words” campaign to raise awareness about the impact of language, Yiannopoulos tore into objections to the phrase “man up,” alleging those opposed are attacking men.

“‘Man up’ is a big no no for liberals, intent on eliminating masculinity from our culture. Toxic masculinity and rape culture and all the other idiotic things they like to say in their war against men,” Yiannopoulos said. “I’ll tell you one UW Milwaukee student that doesn’t need to man up, Justine Kramer.”
He then shared a photo of Adelaide Kramer (Justine is a former name), who was apparently in the audience at the time, on the screen while he proceeded to berate her. Kramer made headlines earlier this year when she objected to being barred from the women’s locker room at the school’s gym.
Yiannopolous went on to misgender Kramer, using anti-trans slurs and accusing her of not trying hard enough to “pass:”
This quote unquote non-binary trans woman forced his way into the women’s locker rooms this year.
He got into the women’s room the way liberals always operate, using the government and the courts to weasel their way in where they don’t belong. In this case he made a Title IX complaint. You know, Title IX, the set of rules to protect women on campus? Now they protect trannies in your bathrooms instead.
I’ve known some passing trannies, they have no problem changing in the women’s locker room. But Justine isn’t even trying… I can tell, because I’d still just about do him… the ULTIMATE sign he doesn’t pass.
Kramer said in a letter to UWM Chancelor Mark Mone that while she expected Yiannopoulos to make racist and transphobic comments, she never anticipated she’d be personally targeted.
In his response to the protests sparked by Yiannopoulos’ appearance, the chancellor defended UWM hosting the event.
But Kramer objected to what she called “lip service” from the chancellor and wrote him a scathing rebuke — one that she copied to more than 400 members of the University community.
“Do you have any fucking idea how hurtful this is? Do you know what it’s like to be in a room full of people who are laughing at you as if you’re some sort of perverted freak, and how many of them would have hollered at me (or worse) if I was outed? Do you know what this kind of terror is?” she asked in the strongly worded email.
