Tucker Carlson suggests teaching kids about LGBTQ people as a sex crime

Tucker Carlson unleashed a hateful tirade against LGBTQ people and their allies on Monday and suggested teaching children about queer identities is a crime.

According to the Fox News host, educating children about any non-heteronormative identity amounts to “children being used as props in adult sexual fantasies.”

Carlson showed clips of several teachers who had taken to social media to discuss their experiences teaching children what it means to be LGBTQ. One of the videos featured a teacher who said, “I had several students speak to me, not only about their sexuality, but also about their gender identity. That’s one of the reasons I think it’s so important to be loud and proud, to make people feel comfortable coming up to me and talking to me.

Another video showed a primary school teacher who said on TikTok that she explained to her students: “Some people are girls, some are boys, some are both, some are neither. other”.

According to Carlson, these comments were “totally outside the bounds of what is acceptable. It’s not a close call.

Carlson then confused teachers educating children about these identities with strangers approaching children to talk about sex.

“If you’re walking through the park with your kids and a stranger comes along and starts talking to them, tell your 5th grader, your 5-year-old, or even your 14-year-old about sex, that would you do? Well, you would call the police, of course. It’s not allowed, it’s a crime,” he said. “But teachers have the right to do that and then to s And it doesn’t stop at classroom teaching. Across the country. Adults are forcing kids to attend drag shows.

Carlson has repeatedly pushed the misconception promoted by conservatives that simply defying gender norms is somehow inherently sexual. After showing videos of kid-friendly drag shows, the Fox News host said they were examples of “sexual fantasies playing out in public.”

“It’s fine, go do your thing, but you’re not allowed to bring children into your sexual fantasies because that’s some kind of paedophilia,” he said. “You can be fully dressed when that happens. That doesn’t make it less abusive or less immoral.

The GLAAD Accountability Project has created a long catalog of anti-LGBTQ rhetoric from Carlson and his guest platform who spread misinformation that harms queer people.

In 2020, Carlson argued that “anyone who talks about identity should be immediately disqualified” from military service. He also said that parents who accept and embrace their transgender children are child abusers and called it a nationwide epidemic. In 2019, Carlson refused to apologize after clips surfaced of him using a homophobic slur.
