Recently, a 5th-grade teacher appeared on Dr. Phil, where he denounced woke gender ideology. The episode featured a debate on “inclusivity” in schools and whether transgender ideology should be taught to children.
One guest on the show proposed that tampons should be given out to students in the boy’s restroom of schools. The teacher, named Ray, slammed the idea citing basic biological facts. “Men do not menstruate. Only women menstruate,” Ray stated.
A guest, who is a transgender activist, responded, “Cis-men don’t menstruate, but trans men do menstruate, same as non-binary people. Menstruating is not exclusive to women.” Ray then cited the chromosomal differences between men and women, meaning that biologically men cannot become women and vice versa. “They’re not men… they’re women dressed as men. You are not a man. You can pretend to be a man, and that’s ok. That’s perfectly fine. Live your life,” Ray said.
At one point during the episode, an audience member interrupted Ray. The teacher called out the audience member for being rude. The member of the audience hit back at Ray, “I’d like to understand from your perspective why you don’t believe it’s rude and why you think you have a right to – when someone identifies a certain way – for you to tell them that that is not correct that particular gender or identity?”
“Why do I feel that it’s right to tell them the truth?” Ray responded. “But it’s not the truth,” the transgender activist retorted. “The people who hate the truth” object to it “because they see the truth as hateful,” he responded. “If you want to identify in any way you can, you’re free to do so. But that does not mean that the rest of us have to join that illusion.”
Another woke audience member who was clearly triggered asked, “If a transgender person is not harming you or the people you love, why do you care so much?” “Because you want us to care,” Ray responded. “No, I don’t want you to care, I want you to be quiet,” she said. “I want you to stop being hateful.” “I disagree with you, and so you call it’ hate,’” Ray replied. “But there’s no hate in my heart at all.”
