While speaking at a religious convention in Nashville earlier this year, Mike Huckabee joked about wishing he "could have felt like a woman" back in high school…in order to get access to female locker rooms. "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 in PE," Huckabee said on stage at the 2015 National Religious Broadcasters Convention back in February. "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.'"


Mike Huckabee wears his religion on his sleeve. When you’re as ultra religious as he is, you’re going to say stupid things.

It’s funny that Mike Huckabee would make a comment like that because I don’t think he would have the courage to shower with girls. Someone as religious as he is would never be able to bring himself to do something like that. His comments are typical, religious fear mongering. Mike is clearly terrified at the idea of Caitlyn Jenner being accepted in today’s world.

Transgender people cause us no harm. If that’s how they want to live, it’s their choice. Part of freedom is the choice to do things that others might not typically agree with. As long as that choice doesn’t cause others harm, you have to respect their freedom to do so.
