Do you have a hobby? Most people do. Personally, I like to read books. I also like to listen to true crime podcasts and heavy metal music. Maybe you like to knit scarves, make art, play video games or go for bike rides.

Fox Nations Laura Ingraham probably has a number of hobbies, though I dont know what they are since most of them she enjoys privately. But theres one hobby she is very passionate and public about, and thats demonizing transgender people.

On the Feb. 3 edition of Fox Nations “Laura and Raymond,” the show she co-hosts with Raymond Arroyo, Ingraham was up in arms about a teacher in New York using a curriculum that encouraged kids to be “transgender-affirming,the very idea of which Ingraham called child abuse.

According to Arroyo, the curriculum stated, Everybody has the right to choose their own gender by listening to their own heart and mind. Everyone gets to choose if they are a boy or a girl or both or neither or something else.

To which Ingraham replied, I have a question. If that’s the case, then do pre-kindergartners actually get to choose when they can have sexual activity?

I was at first confused by her question. Because, OF COURSE, pre-kindergartners get to choose when they can have what Ingraham calls sexual activity.But then I realized that Ingraham isnt talking about how children explore their bodies, how thats normal, how good parents encourage children in an age-appropriate way to be curious while still cautioning them that some things are private and teaching them about boundaries.

What Ingraham is talking about is apparently pre-schoolers having sex. And shes saying that affirming a childs gender sexualizes them, which is bonkers.

Sex and gender are not the same thing. Sexual orientation and gender identity are not the same thing. This is, I understand, very confusing for some people. And the idea that there are more than just two boxes to check, male or female, makes some people really uncomfortable. I get it. The unfamiliar can be scary.

But respecting a childs gender identity is not the same thing as giving them a juice box and a bag of Goldfish and dropping them off at a brothel for a playdate.

Demonizing transgender people has real and damaging consequences. Affirming gender identity has real and life-saving consequences. According to Media Matters, Research shows that transgender youth are best able to succeed when their teachers and families accept and affirm their gender identity, which has been proven to reduce their risk of experiencing depression, homelessness and suicidal ideation.

Gosh, that sounds like a good thing, and not like child abuse at all. In fact, its more like the opposite of child abuse.

But thats not the way Ingraham sees it. She sees any affirmation of gender identity to be a societal scourge. 

The public school system in California has led the way on this, and this is absolute indoctrination of children and its an assault on religious liberty. The parents who don’t want to be part of this are ostracized and meant to feel like they are haters when theyre just like, Were just doing what our conscience and biology informs us.’”

Pretty rich to hear someone from Fox Nation talk about indoctrination.

As for making people feel like haters, its important to point out that you dont have to hate someone to harm them. But advocating against another persons humanity is a pretty hateful endeavor.

This isnt the first time Ingraham has equated gender affirmation to child abuse. During her June 12, 2019, podcast she claimed that the left has been on the cultural warpath to gender-bend our kids into submissionand that LGBTQ activists were indoctrinating childrenvia drag queen story hours at public libraries.

In 2014 she advised parents of transgender kids who identify as girls to tell them, Take the dress off. Were going to go out and play some football.

Speaking of sports, in 2019 she called letting trans athletes play in gender-segregated sports insanity,putting the blame on feminism. 

If this is where feminism takes us, and gender politics takes us,she said on Fox News, all feminists across the country should, you know, think about it again because this will destroy girls’ sports eventually.

Yes, just wait until cis boys learn that they can win more at sports simply by changing their gender identity and competition against girls. I definitely see that happening in 3, 2, 1, never.

Fun fact: Laura Ingraham has a gay brother. 

I think shes a monster,Curtis Ingraham said in a 2018 Daily Beast interview. Shes very smart, shes well-spoken, but her emotional heart is just kind of dead.

And its definitely not resting in peace.
