Over the last 20 years, despite opposition from Conservatives, gay and lesbian people have become much more accepted by society. While they are still attacked, the right seem to be moving on to a war against Transgender people.
Surprisingly, during Pride Month, Fox News ran a segment that painted a transgender teen in a positive light. This led to an angry reason from Ben Shapiro.
In the segment, the teen’s mother told Fox, “Children actually do recognize their gender identity very young. … You believe in God, and He created us the way He wanted us, well then, yes, He created Ryland just the way he is.”
Shapiro began by calling the segment, “the most disturbing thing I’ve seen in quite a while.” He continued:
“This appeared on Fox News, a reportedly Conservative network that stands for the values of traditional American Conservatism. It is propagandizing openly, the transgenderizing of small children.”
