My rainbow issues outside work have been mostly limited to finding the seven different colors of folders that are on my two sons' back-to-school supply lists. The other night, though, I finally had a chance to watch the two different segments that have generated so much buzz. I reacted to them as a parent.
On the August 18 edition of Huckabee, England and Huckabee skirted a serious discussion of the bullying and discrimination encountered by transgender youth. Instead, Huckabee granted England a platform to spout ignorant ideas about how the law would affect students.
When the Rev. David Weekley, a transgender clergy ordained in the United Methodist Church, attended school in the 1960s, he endured discrimination from peers, teachers and school administrators had on his mental and physical health.
The hosts of “Fox and Friends” are so mad that transgender students in California are now legally entitled to use the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity. And they are also so confused about what being transgender even means!
Damn, why is it that some idiots take it upon themselves to destroy or vandalize the nice things? The trans community in Manchester, England and their allies are probably asking themselves that question right now.
