FACTS

-- Suggests that a transgender child who identifies as a girl is really a boy in need of a father: "And one final thought: No mention is made anywhere of the boy's father, and his utter absence from news stories strikes me as a classic "elephant in the room," or in this case, not in the room. Dare I state the obvious, unspoken truth? This poor little boy desperately needs a father."

-- Says it "can be child abuse" to support a transgender child (6:12-6:18)
