!! OMG, Donald Trump describes LGBTQ+ people as “sickos” in speech eluding to 2024 run !!

We feel absolutely sick. That evil, orange Oompa Loompa is back at the podium and spewing even more hate than ever. For a man that once tried to convince the LGBTQ+ community he was an ally (unsuccessfully) by dangling around a pride flag and having his daughter do a pride speech – our stomach just prepared itself to make a dhiarrea. Trump took the podium for a bizarre speech where he made up stories about trans women with 30-foot-long arms and described LGBTQ+ people as “sickos who are pushing sexual content in kindergartens: [via queerty]

“Federal, state, and local government should aggressively enforce existing statutes to stop the perverted sexualization of minor children,” he said. “You have the statutes.”

The “sexualization of children” is a phrase that the right has been using this past year to refer to any discussion of LGBTQ identities and children. The expression has been applied to discussing LGBTQ people in school or having LGBTQ books like And Tango Makes Three – which is about a baby penguin with two dads – available in school libraries.

It also gets used when supportive parents who don’t force their children to follow gender rules around clothing, or parents who support their transgender kids’ identities.

“The society that refuses to protect its children is a society that soon will not be able to protect anybody,” Trump said. “This is a hallmark of cultural and social decay against which we should fight back very hard and very soon we don’t have time to wait years to do this.”

“The sickos who are pushing sexual content in kindergartens or providing puberty blockers to young children who have no idea what a puberty blocker is – neither do I, by the way, neither do most of the people in the audience as you smile,” he said. While he was at least honest about not knowing anything about health care for transgender youth, he took a strong stance against it.

“Let’s just say they’re not good – are not just engaged in acts of depravity in many cases they are breaking the law and they should be held fully accountable,” he said.

“By the way, we should not allow men to play in women’s sports. So crazy,” he said.

Find his full, hate-filled speech after the jump. If you are LGBTQ+, OR cis for that matter, and still supporting this fascist loser, you really need take a long hard look in the mirror.

  1. the way in which he described the ones pushing the puberty blockers does make them sickos-quit taking words out of context-you make it sound like he is talking about the whole community

  2. Gender does NOT = sex. If you listen to Trans adults, so many will tell you they knew they were trans at a very early age. Wouldn’t it be nice to know earlier than later that you are not alone in your feelings, in the world. Because REPRESENTATION MATTERS.

    • Exactly. Gender identity and sex/sexual preference are two completely different things. If talking about how a child identifies regarding their gender is “sexualizing children,” then putting a child in “girl’s clothing” or “boy’s clothing” must also be considered sexualizing children.

  3. anyone gay republican should be ashamed of themselves. it makes no sense. it’s like a black being in the KKK.

    • You should be ashamed for making such a small minded comment, as If you speak for anyone besides yourself.

  4. What a stretch. He said the people pushing things on kids are sickos. Not every single alphabet person.

  5. When he descended to the lower bowels (the escalator surrounded by paid actors) of Hell on announcing his 2016 run, his first attack was against immigrants and Muslims. His anger and calculated rhetoric ignited an ignorant base larger than just the run-of-the-mill wing-nuts. That extended base is just not there any more. Sure, now he’s going after the Xtian terrorists by threatening the LGBT community, but again… they Xtian terrorists do not make up the majority of the GOP base. I anticipate this will backfire on him.

  6. 9 year old kids can’t decide on their favorite color or whether they want to be an astronaut or the president. Do you really think we should try to get them to understand trans identity and other sexual concepts at that age? Waiting a few more years for sex education is not hateful. (This is not an endorsement of Trump.)

      Cis parents force gender roles on kids every day and expect them to understand, you only consider it sexual when they don’t conform to your understanding of gender. Even if you’re not consciously trying to be hateful that double standard at the heart of this culture war is rooted in homophobia and transphobia. There’s no middle ground here, if you’re not advocating for protecting trans kids and educating their peers you are at best supporting the status quo in which they are criminalized and bullied into suicide. Something to think about if you truly care about children, and not just the ones who express themselves in a way you’ve deemed appropriate.
