Fox News’ answer to the concept of intelligence and decency, Tucker Carlson, went on his show last night to make a case for violence against teachers and the LGBTQ+ community in a long-winded, strangely rapid, and tightly wound rant against all things transgender and sexual education-based. After showing clip after clip of drag queens, combined with decontextualized story after story and misleading pull quote after misleading pull quote, Tucker decided to go back in on attacking the concept of sex ed.
Sex education: the concept that most Americans thought we got our minds wrapped around a few decades ago. Tucker asked his audience the rhetorical question: “What’s a ‘human sexuality’ lecture look like in my sixth grader’s class? Why don’t you tell me. Speak slowly. So I can take notes.”
Here’s a rhetorical question for Tucky: Does Tucker Carlson need to masturbate? Does Tucker not know how to masturbate his body, just his ego? It is hard to know. He clearly doesn’t enjoy speaking “slowly.”
Tucker then launched into a really frightening litany of accusations against teachers and educators in general, calling “gender-affirming care” a “euphemism” for “sexualizing children.” From there things only got worse.
