Apparently, Caitlyn Jenner is a Republican. But maybe not for long, especially if Mike Huckabee keeps opening his mouth.
In comments this past February that were made more widely available this week, the former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate said, “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 went on, “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.’ “
Huckabee’s comments are not only crass but insulting. Even if he wants to dismiss the basic dignity and rights of transgender Americans, he could at least get his facts straight: Gender identity has nothing to do with sexual orientation.
