Surprise! Mike Huckabee Says Something Stupid About Transgendered People


Mike Huckabee via Wikipedia
Via Buzzfeed:

“For those who do not think that we are under threat, simply recognize that the fact that we are now in city after city watching ordinances say that your seven-year-old daughter, if she goes into the restroom cannot be offended and you can’t be offended if she’s greeted there by a 42-year-old man who feels more like a woman than he does a man.”

What astounds me is the lack of empathy and the willful ignorance of what it means to be transgendered. The statement gets better. 

“Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE,” said Huckabee. “I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, ‘Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today.’ You’re laughing because it sounds so ridiculous doesn’t it?”

Yes, Mike. That 42 year old that identifies as female who wants to use the restroom is the same thing as a horney teen creeping on girls in the shower. How insightful! No wonder he's voiced strong support for Josh Duggar.
