Video Shows Huckabee Joking About The Benefits Of Being 'Transgender'

Bruce Jenner’s decision to become a woman elicited a flood of reactions, with many people voicing support for the former Olympic athlete.

However, one of the Republican candidates for president has indicated he is skeptical of people who change their sexes. The Hill reported that one day after photos of Caitlyn Jenner were made public, World Net Daily posted a video of the former Arkansas governor criticizing transgender people during a speech at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in February.

The video shows Huckabee saying: “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. 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?”

He continued: “For those who do not think that we are under threat, simply recognize that the fact that we are now in city after city watching ordinances say that your 7-year-old daughter, if she goes into the restroom, cannot be offended, and you can’t be offended if she’s greeted there by a 42-year-old man who feels more like a woman than he does a man.”
