Huckabee: ‘I should have said I was transgender in high school to shower with the girls’

The video, first published by the right wing conspiracy site World Net Daily, shows Huckabee returning to a favorite talking point from evangelical Christians, claiming that children are under threat of trans people.

In comments flagged by BuzzFeed this Tuesday, Mike Huckabee warned a rapt audience about the growing acceptance of transgender people in America.

The video, first published by the right wing conspiracy site World Net Daily, shows Huckabee returning to a favorite talking point from evangelical Christians, claiming that children are under threat from trans people:

For those who do not think that we are under threat, simply recognize that the fact that we are now in city after city watching ordinances say that your 7-year-old daughter, if she goes into the restroom cannot be offended and you can’t be offended if she’s greeted there by a 42-year-old man who feels more like a woman than he does a man.

[…]

Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE. I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, “Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today.” You’re laughing because it sounds so ridiculous doesn’t it?

    HuckaJesus truly is a disgusting piece of shit. He’s about as “Christian” as the rocks in my garden (and is the perfect example of Gandhi’s “your Christians are so unlike your Christ” quote).

    Why? Because what he says makes sense? Would you want your little girl to be subjected to a grown man’s penis while she’s in the privacy of a ladies’ room? I wouldn’t. I’m all for “be who you wanna be”, but if you have a penis, you need to be in the men’s room.

    Rothvl, unless women usually go about the restroom with their pants down, what happens inside a stall is not usually public knowledge?

    Huckabee is an idiot…and this is just one more in a long line of idiotic things that he has said..He had a knee-jerk reaction when first confronted with the idea of a person being transgender..and he hasn’t seen fit to educate himself beyond that initial reaction..The trans woman faces far more danger using the men’s room than anyone’s child does with her using the ladies room. No one would go through dressing as a woman to get in the Lady’s Room just to sneak a peek. You can look at naked people on the internet all day long or in person for a relatively inexpensive fee. And furthermore, no one should let a child go into a public or semi-public restroom or locker room ALONE..Grow up, Mr. Huckabee…you do yourself and your audience an immense disservice with your juvenile jokes about something you clearly don’t understand..

    This man is running for the office once held by Washington, Lincoln, and two Roosevelts?

    It is rather too bad he didn’t try pulling the trans card way back when, someone would have probably beat him to death and we wouldn’t have to put up with his shit today.

    The ignorance in your comment leaves thinking people speechless. You are the sort of rube that wouldn’t be comfortable in ANY restroom.
