Ben Carson calls transgender people “abnormal”

3

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, who built up a track record of transphobia in a relatively short  period of time, strikes again! In an incoherent and rambling interview with the Catholic News Network, he dismissed transgenders as “a few people who perhaps are abnormal”.

Later on in the interview he states:

Boys who say: “I feel like a girl today and i want to go to the girl’s lavatory”, that is such a bunch of garbage! If we continue to cater to that, where will it lead, what will it lead us to be? We are absolutely destroying ourselves, because we are paying attention to political correctness and remember, there were a lot of people who gave their lives so that we can have freedom of speech and freedom of expression. We need to go ahead and express ourselves and the majority needs to stand up

Apart from the fact he refers to a transgender girl as a boy: Carson’s idea of freedom of speech and expression does not seem to apply to the transgirl to whom he is referring, who doesn’t have the freedom to express her gender by visiting the appropriate bathroom. On the other hand, catering to the wish of this transgirl, wouldn’t in any way impinge upon the freedom of expression of other visitors of said bathroom. He also seems to ignore the fact that many transgenders also gave their lives for this freedom.

    • I completely agree with your comment regarding the words uttered by this hyper-religious, bigoted fool. Thankfully, I seriously doubt he has any chance of a political victory and such appalling displays of both arrogance and ignorance only appeal to the most uneducated voter.

  1. Ok, this will sound a bit out there and obnoxious but here we go on the roller coaster ride of this train wreck….toot Tooot.

    First of all he should be ashamed of himself. Take out transgendered and plug in black, african or slave . (The few slaves that are abnormal.)* You know, the ones standing up for equality.*
    Blacks who say: “I feel like a free person today and i want to go to the white lavatory”, that is such a bunch of garbage! If we continue to cater to that, where will it lead, what will it lead us to be? We are absolutely destroying ourselves, because we are paying attention to political correctness and remember, there were a lot of people who gave their lives so that we can have freedom of speech and freedom of expression.* reguardless of the million or more natives we killed ,supressed or the captured Africans killed on ships or while chaned pushed into the harbor or the thousands of african slaves whiped, beaten and abused at the hands of their owners. I say today* We need to go ahead and express ourselves and the majority needs to stand up.

    Actual quote from Bennie Boy…..Boys who say: “I feel like a girl today and i want to go to the girl’s lavatory”, that is such a bunch of garbage! If we continue to cater to that, where will it lead, what will it lead us to be? We are absolutely destroying ourselves, because we are paying attention to political correctness and remember, there were a lot of people who gave their lives so that we can have freedom of speech and freedom of expression. We need to go ahead and express ourselves and the majority needs to stand up

    He would be charged ,arrested and possibly attacked by outraged americans reguardless of their race or his if he said that about slavery, freedom from slavery etc. My point is he carries the same mentallity of hate, bigotry and discriminatory practices that enslaved his peoples, destroyed families and decimated entire tribes on this continent. This countries evil and bloody past is not forgotten. Reguardless of how much the populace has been mis taught truth of this countries history. This country was not built on the back of slavery, it was built literly on the bodies of those murdered in a holocaust that was larger then hitler induced on the jewish peoples. Ben Carson should be ashamed and he should be not only forced to make a public appology but charged for his actions. 1969 brough about changes Mr Carson. You should silence your words until you read a bit of history
