LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — How does one explain a line like this: “Transgender dudes cleverly force their way into female bathrooms all over the country”? Transgender bullying for profit. That is what Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson is doing with his latest trans smash piece. Carlson founded the Daily Caller after he was let go from CNN and MSNBC. He is now a correspondent for FOX News. This is my third report on trans bashing by Carlson’s online news organization.
In the recent piece, the Daily Caller’s editor Eric Owens said this:
“Maine’s supreme court foists choose-your-own-bathroom policy on entire state” (accompanied by a photo of a girl in a shower, screaming).
The first time I took the Daily Caller to task was back in 2012 when writer Caroline May used this headline for a trans hit piece:
“Watch out, you ladies at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith: Those feet under the stall next to you might just belong to a 38-year-old man.”
Late last year after a second round of transgender bashing in the Daily Caller, I referred to the Daily Caller as the Transgender Whipping Post. At that time Owens taunted trans people with this:
“It’s back-to-school time across America and you know what that means: a fresh supply of stories about transgender students demanding special treatment–particularly when it comes to bathrooms and locker rooms.”
Tucker’s news organization is monitored by media watchdog groups. Media Matters’ Luke Brinker had this to say about the Daily Callers most recent incident:
The disproportionate violence and harassment faced by the transgender community doesn’t occur in a vacuum. It’s the direct consequence of the very sort of ridicule and objectification shamelessly practiced by The Daily Caller.
Trans bashing for dollars. Mighty big accomplishment there, eh Mr. Carlson?
