Mike Huckabee, while speaking to the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in February, had a creepy uncle comment for the crowd.
“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,” Huckabee said.
“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?”
It doesn’t necessarily sound ridiculous, but he sure sounds ridiculous. He’s offending transgender people while also telling a group of Christian conservatives that he wanted to see girls naked after gym class.
Being transgendered is not driven by sexual orientation, and is rather a personal identity matter. However, Mike Huckabee, in his transgender high school fantasy, is driven by sexuality.
Huckabee thinks you can just pull an Eric Cartmen and start showering with the girls. Cartmen was tired of the boys bathroom stalls always being taken, and decided to identify as a female to have access to the girls bathroom.
