Last year, Pat Robertson pushed back against “the misconception that I’m sort of right-wing extremist,” in part by citing his belief that he sees “nothing wrong” with transgender people seeking sex reassignment surgery.
The televangelist’s “progressive” views on transgender issues didn’t last long, shockingly enough, and today he lambasted the Obama administration after the Education Department found that “an Illinois school district violated anti-discrimination laws when it did not allow a transgender student who identifies as a girl and participates on a girls’ sports team to change and shower in the girls’ locker room without restrictions.”
Robertson suggested that the transgender student may just want to stare at naked girls: “This transgender stuff, I mean, this was a boy and this boy, we don’t know what surgery was performed on him, if any, we don’t know what his parts are, and yet he wants to go into the girls’ locker room and see all these disrobed little girls running around.”
“They don’t want some little boy in their locker room,” he continued. “He says, ‘I’m not a little boy, I’m a little girl.’ Whoever heard of such nonsense in a great nation like the United States of America? Why are we doing this? And the federal government is doing everything it can to push this agenda.”
