Bill O’Reilly surprised us when he defended transgender Miss Universe Canada contestant Jenna Talackova, saying she should have the right to compete as a woman.
But, as always, it’s one step forward, two steps backwards with GOP blowhards. Today he takes aim at Glee for promoting that transgender ideology that he just defended.
What’s the difference here? Jenna was a pretty little blonde woman, and Bill said “What right does the Miss Universe pageant have to violate this lady’s right to be a woman? They are basically saying because you weren’t born a woman you don’t have a right to be a woman..[it] doesn’t sound right to me.”
Now, on Alex Newell playing a big and beautiful transgender lady on Glee‘s latest episode, he says he doesn’t want kids to start experimenting with gay sex and with their gender, comparing it with the fact that seeing James Dean smoking on TV made him want to smoke as a teen.
Luckily, there is a voice of reason on the set in Judge Jeanine Pirro to set Bill right. “Do you really think that this is the kind of thing that is contagious?”
She continued: “That’s a behavior, that’s like a beer. Not your sexuality. Bill, did you ever want to be a woman?”
He does kind of look like the kind of dude who’d cross-dress on the side, doesn’t he?
