This one was easy – Fox contributor Tammy Bruce. Bruce, who claims to be a lesbian, feminist and pro-choice, but is actually a conservative Republican operative who once argued that even gay people believe that marriage should only be available for straight people. She was president of the Los Angeles chapter of NOW in the 90s who was censured for making racially insensitive remarks.
She then went on to write three books railing against the left and started a career as a right wing radio personality. She is constantly showing up to argue against gay rights, from the perspective as a gay person, so it’s okay you see.
It’s not as confusing as it seems because Bruce is just a phony.
This week she responded to a school trying to sensitize students and their parents to transgender students. The idiotic Elizabeth Hasselbeck asked if this was “some sort of plan of indoctrination to get kids first?” Because any sensitivity is always a plan to indoctrinate the children.
Bruce’s brilliantly constructed response was that of course it’s indoctrination (and I can say that because I’m a gay person)
“This is about conditioning,” she replied, “and not just of the children, but the parents as well. You can be the moral arbiter of your child — that doesn’t make you a bigot.”
And further she dismissed the entire idea of a transgender child by saying.
“When I was a child, I thought I was a cocker spaniel”
Now that’s a first class asshole.
I have a young relative who is a lovely young lady who is about to enter high school and is very interested in theater. She was born a boy, but knew that was not right for her. My cousin, her step mother, who is an educator, reading specialist and child advocate worked with the girl’s father (against the wishes of the girl’s mother) to get the girl the help she needed to be whole and happy. Tammy Bruce is either a complete phony and ideological mercenary or a disgusting traitor to herself. I feel sorry for her.
