Greg Gutfeld, a product of twelve years of Catholic education and author of "The Joy of Hate," is damned proud of his having been named, by GLAAD (Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) one of the worst anti-gay and anti-transgender voices of 2008. He was given this accolade because, as he gleefully expressed it, he referred to sex change operations as turning a "pole into a hole." That he is vying for a spot in the 2013 awards was demonstrated in his comments on last week's Factor where he was filling in for Bill O'Reilly who, like his soul brotha Gutfeld, has made derogatory comments about the transgender community - comments that generated a call, from GLAAD, to boycott O'Reilly's sponsors. Gutfeld, in promoting the transphobia of the radical Christian right, mocked the new California law which is about "supporting transgender students in an environment where they are routinely subjected to discrimination and harassment." Comedian Gutfeld showed what a joker he is by mocking this as "the bathroom bill
While the bill is officially titled the "School Success and Opportunity Act," a bill heralded as "landmark because it attempts to deal with transphobic bullying," Gutfeld's opening graphic was a map of California with "Bathroom Bill" underneath. Gutfeld reported that the bill "requires schools to allow gender confused students to use bathrooms and lockers based on their perceived gender and not biological sex." (Note, he used the pejorative"gender confused" as opposed to the clinically correct "transgender") While he played up the "bathroom" part of the legislation he ignored the fact that the bill also covers other school activities. After noting that the bill was passed by the California legislature and awaits a signature from Governor Brown, he played video of a legislator who supports the bill.
He spoke with radio talk show host Ebony Williams who supports the measure. He acknowledged that while these students face problems but asked if this makes the problems worse. She replied that it makes it better. Very surprisingly, right wing radio host Mike Gallagher spoke with sensitivity about gender issues faced by young people. But he opposes the law because it bill doesn't require student to live as the opposite gender or undergo counseling. I give him credit for saying that "it's a serious issue." He felt that the law, however, will cause more problems.
Joker Gutfeld offered the following: "As a devious teen growing up, I would tell girls that I'm a girl trapped in a boy's body, just so I could sneak into the girls' bathroom. In fact, I do that now at Fox News. ... Gretchen Carlson threw me out of the bathroom just last week." He played video of a Fox News bathroom stall.
So there you have it. An attempt to ease the trauma experienced by transgender youth is just one big joke. Hardeharhar
And Gutfeld says Muslims are intolerant?
Gutter is a confused comedian who thinks he’s funny. His jokes, like his personality, are staled as bread. He’s not the brightest star in space. He tried to give his brain away to science and they told him “no thanks.”
NOTE TO GUTTER
We are confused by your gender. We are not sure if you are a man or a coward.
I think the man is overdue for a visit from his school’s officials demanding he return his diploma (and maybe a few good sisters could come by with their rulers for a few hundred good raps on the knuckles).
