LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — Responding to a question about trans youth access to bathrooms while campaigning in New Hampshire this week, New Jersey governor Chris Christie jokingly stated, as reported on CNN:
“Men go to men’s rooms, women go to women’s rooms and there really shouldn’t be a whole lot of confusion about that – public accommodations. And I don’t think we should be making life more confusing for our children.
“Life is confusing enough right now for our children. Think about those kids in Los Angeles who last week had their entire district closed because of a [domestic terrorist] threat. Think about what they felt like the next day when they went back to school. Did they feel completely comfortable, did they feel like they were safe? How did their mothers and fathers feel when they sent them to school that day? . . .”
Last August Christie vetoed a bill making it easier to change gender ID on a birth certificate. Last week, an attempt to override the veto failed by one vote in the NJ senate.
Anti-trans comments made by other Republican presidential candidates:
Ben Carson: “I do not appreciate using our military as a laboratory for social experimentation. We have too many important things to do when our men and women are out there fighting the enemy. The last thing that we need to be doing is saying what would it be like if we introduced several transgender people into this platoon. Give me a break. Deal with the transgender thing somewhere else.”
Carson, in the past, has also equated gay people to pedophiles.
Mike Huckabee: “the military is not a place where we try out experiments . . . it’s not to fight the battles of sexual identity or orientation.”
Ted Cruz: “It’s also been reported that he [Colorado school shooter Robert Lewis Dear] was registered as an independent and a woman and a transgendered leftist activist.”
Marco Rubio: “[Rubio’s] executive orders would be to reverse the executive orders the president [Obama] has made on things like gender equality in restrooms. You’ve seen some local districts and others been forced to, you know, provide girls access to a boys’ bathroom, and so forth.”
Rick Santorum: “I don’t know why children at that age — why this is even an issue, the idea that we are introducing this type of real dangerous confusion for young people at this early age . . .”
So far, we haven’t heard from Donald Trump.

The GOP presidential candidates are a clown-car of bigoted gobshites.
Yes, the whole GOP parade of clowns are indeed a piece of very smelly shit, and their radical right wing supporters are the flies buzzing around it. And the other GOP politicians are the hatchling maggots squirming around eating it.
Really proves the old adage, Birds of a Feather Stick Together. In this case a Flock of Ignorant, Intellectual Republican dunces, as in their old age will be looked on as such, when more knowledge of being Transgender becomes known. Not all Clowns are loved!?!?!?
`I just wish they would go through what a lot of us has gone through then they would not be saying these things
Morons. Let’s take their electioneering money and do something useful with it.
Apparently all these Sexocrats want daughters –
“However, our findings suggest that children who are born genetically and hormonally male may identify themselves as males despite being raised as females and undergoing feminizing genitoplasty at birth. Routine neonatal assignment of genetic males to female sex because of severe phallic inadequacy can result in unpredictable sexual identification. Clinical interventions in such children should be reexamined in the light of these findings.”
– who’ll either have productive lives destroyed, transition back to male, kill themselves, or satisfy their daddies completely.
Again, I’d like to thank our fearless leaders for murdering their supporters, ending their genetic lines, and subjecting their chemically damaged children to the everyday tasks of “You’re going to serve your country whether you like it or not, mf”. Trans children are far too valuable to waste.
