In an attempt to expose the absurdity of treating other human beings with respect, prophet and presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee told the crowd at the 2015 National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville, Tennessee in February this:
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 7-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.
Do you see what’s happening? Your right to be offended is under attack! Soon the phrase, “Won’t somebody please think of the children!” will be banned and then we will no longer have nice lectures like the one that this post is about. And then what?
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. 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?
I don’t need to tell you that this is a willful misreading of what it means to be transgender or what’s behind the cause for trans equality. It should be noted, though, that Huckabee thinks other people’s brains go there—there being a locker room full of naked female high school students—because that’s where his brain goes. This lecherous scenario is his invention. No one was thinking of exposed budding breasts until Huckabee invoked them.
And yeah, Mike, all this time men have just been respectfully waiting for an excuse to sneak up on women in public restrooms and attack them. Once the men have the women in their clutches, we’ll have to invent a word for what happens next. I choose “rape.” Let’s do everything we can to make sure rape never becomes a reality by continuing to treat trans people like utter garbage, collectively as a society.
Huckabee kept spewing:
There is something inherently wrong about forcing little children to be a part of this social experiment I’m not against anybody. I’d just like for somebody to bring their brain to work some day and not leave it on the bedstand when they show up to govern.
