FOX News medical expert Dr. Keith Ablow has suggested that a Donald Trump presidency could force transgender people back into the closet
“The reason why we are seeing all these transgender people coming out is because of Barack Obama,” said Ablow on “FOX and Friends.” “With Obama in the White House, they see a weak, effeminate man. It’s no wonder women feel comfortable wearing men’s clothes, and men feel comfortable wearing women’s clothes and using the women’s bathroom. With a President Trump, the country will see an old-fashioned, tough, masculine male.”
Ablow has been a strong critic of transgender people. In past FOX News interviews he has suggested injecting transgender people with hormones to force them to conform to their birth gender. He also called transgender people frauds and a threat to the human race.
“Right, so if you believe that you are of one gender, but your DNA and your physical appearance and your physical anatomy are evidence that you are of another gender, and there’s that conflict, then if we allow people culturally to dictate terms in our culture, then we also by extension may be in a position where we allow people to say that they’re 65 when they’re 45 and get Medicare, allow people to get tattooed head-to-foot and say I’m a black person,” said Ablow. “Now would that be offensive to black people, if that person got affirmative action preferences at school? I think it might. Why? Because there’s history. There’s culture, there’s reality. This is the leading edge. Some would argue, I might, of an unraveling of our culture and perhaps our to plan for the future as a species.”
