(SNews) – Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is demanding $20 million in taxpayer money to feminize the crash dummies used in vehicle safety testing.
According to Buttigieg’s proposal, female dummies are needed “to fight the gender inequity among… crash victims.”
Buttigieg made the proposal in the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) 2024 fiscal budget.
The push to radicalize crash testing comes despite the United States facing constant railroad derailments amid the collapse of infrastructure.
Nevertheless, Buttigieg’s new plan to spend millions in U.S. tax dollars on gender-inclusive crash test dummies has already received support from several House Democrats.
On Thursday, Buttigieg was present during a House Appropriations subcommittee.
His demand for “woke” crash testing was praised by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT).
DeLauro declared that Buttigieg’s new plan to promote “equity” with female crash dummies is a major step in fighting “gender inequity.”

The New York Post reported:
Despite stubbornly high inflation and a looming debt ceiling crisis, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is asking Congress for $20 million in his department’s proposed fiscal year 2024 budget — to develop female crash test dummies.
Specifically, dummies representing “small-sized adult females,” according to the DOT’s pitch for its “cutting-edge safety and accessibility research initiatives.”
When Buttigieg appeared before a House Appropriations subcommittee Thursday to discuss his budget ask, Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) commended him for “including the critical funding that would accelerate the development” of the distaff dummies.
On Thursday night, Tucker Carlson shredded Buttigieg and DeLauro for not focusing on real issues.
