Well, she’s at it again, folx!
Megyn Kelly is once again attacking queer people on her Twitter page, calling them “lunatics” and urging her followers to “fight this nonsense.”
The failed TV morning host retweeted an article published by the conservative media outlet Hot Air about how medical schools have begun denying biological sex, and how faculty are being policed, and how “wokeness” has become an “existential threat” to medicine, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
“It’s all hands on deck to fight this nonsense,” Kelly tweeted yesterday. “Ignoring/laughing at it has not worked – these lunatics are winning.”

We won’t bother summarizing the article because it’s mostly just a bunch of anti-LGBTQ bullsh*t that doesn’t cite any sources or offer any actual information beyond vague insinuations made by some woman named “Lauren”. But we will offer a quick roundup of responses to O.G. Karen’s tweet.
Here’s what folx are saying…
Really? What is your issue with this Megyn? Why are you on this crusade? I certainly hope it’s not because one of your precious children has shown they may not be conforming to their physical identity? Or are you just trying to stir up fear and therefore rage?I truly want to know

Read the article Megyn. It’s unsubstantiated and based on one persons claimed memory.

Well,Megyn, hotair .com and an anonymous letter are not exactly solid sources and there’s a difference between teaching that biological sex doesn’t exist and using more inclusive language. Try to apply some nuanced thinking once in a while.

And this is a threat to democracy or my ability to provide for my family how?

An article from “Hot Air” without a mention of a specific school or professor. Very credible 😏

That says it all doesn’t it.

Ignoring/laughing was never the answer. It’s no surprise you have no idea how to meet this moment.

You don’t trust doctors anyway, say not to get vaccinated. Why do you suddenly care about doctors education?

More cherry picking of isolated incidents that will likely have little to no impact on the arc of history. And from reputable publications like ‘hot air’ whatever that is. Nice job being a cynical propagandist @megynkelly

Earlier this month, Kelly told Business Insider that she left NBC in 2018 because it simply wasn’t “intellectually stimulating” enough for her and not because the network fired her for making racist remarks in support of blackface.
Evidently, hard-hitting non-investigative pieces written by bloggers employed by a website that peddles baseless conservative conspiracy theories are more her speed.
