In his continuing quest to find ever-more-crazy analogies, televangelist Pat Robertson is scaling new heights of offensive lunacy. His latest: transgender people are like a horse that he had castrated.
Robertson’s rant ostensibly was about the California law offering rights and protections to transgender students, which he called “absurd.” He trotted out the usual complaints and bogeymen.
“Why are we exposed to this stuff?” he whined. “They are driving the agenda, driving everybody crazy, all this sexual identity, sexual politics, ‘Mommy Has Two Mommies’ [sic] and all that stuff, it’s a tiny fringe but they seem to have control of the levers of power in the media and especially in Hollywood.”
Then, in typical Pat fashion, Robertson went off topic into the deep brush of his psyche, to speculate about what it means to be trans.
“Now, we talk about transgender, I have a former stallion who is now a gelding, because stallions get very aggressive,” Robertson opined. “But he wasn’t trying to be a girl, we just made him into a less aggressive male. And I want you to see him! He’s big and beautiful!”
So all you need is to understand the trans community is a knowledge of animal husbandry.
