    Even though I am not surprised, I can't believe it. Go read the full article here.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-rowe/krxq-sacramento-radio-hos_b_210637.html
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-rowe/krxq-sacramento-radio-hos_b_210637.html"Allowing transgenders to exist, pretty soon it becomes normal to fall in love with the animals," they said.

    For his part, States bragged that if his own son were to ever dare put on a pair of high heels, States would beat his son with one of his own shoes. He urged parents whose own little boys expressed a desire to wear a dress to verbally abuse and degrade them as a viable response. "Because you know what? Boys don't wear high heel shoes. And in my house, they definitely don't wear high heels.

    "I'm going to go, 'You know what? You're a little idiot! You little dumbass!'" States sneered, adding later, "I look forward to when [the transgender children] go out into society and society beats them down. And they wind up in therapy."

    Also from Glaad:

    http://glaadblog.org/tag/arnie-dawn-in-the-morning/GLAAD is currently working with the Trans Youth Family Allies to respond to a highly defamatory radio broadcast on KRXQ-FM in Sacramento, California on May 28.

    In a long tirade on the Rob, Arnie & Dawn in the Morning radio show, heard in Sacramento, California on KRXQ 98.5FM, hosts Rob Williams and Arnie States verbally attacked transgender children when discussing a recent story about a transgender child and her parents’ decision to support her transition in Omaha, NE.

    The two hosts spent more than 30 minutes making highly derogatory comments about transgender children and promoting child abuse as a so-called “cure” for their gender identity.

    GLAAD has reached out to KRXQ management to communicate our serious concerns and demand an apology. We are waiting for their reply.

    Transgender means going through a sex change doesn't it? Surgery hormones etc.

    Isn't this idiot, Mr States, referring to cross-dressing, which is something entirely different?

    I think they have the cross-hairs on boys that are feminine or that identify as girls. Whatever he thinks he advocates verbally or physically abusing them to straighten them out according to one of the articles

    Meninlove, hope this clears it up .. Here is what wikipedia says:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TransgenderTransgender is the state of one's "gender identity" (self-identification as woman, man, or neither) not matching one's "assigned sex" (identification by others as male or female based on physical/genetic sex). "Transgender" does not imply any specific form of sexual orientation; transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, or asexual. The precise definition for transgender remains in flux, but includes:

    * "Of, relating to, or designating a person whose identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender roles, but combines or moves between these."

    * "People who were assigned a sex, usually at birth and based on their genitals, but who feel that this is a false or incomplete description of themselves."

    * "Non-identification with, or non-presentation as, the sex (and assumed gender) one was assigned at birth."

    is it wrong to want to bring back eugenics to make sure people like that can't have children... or even a house plant?

    Here is another GLAAD post:

    http://glaadblog.org/2009/06/02/update-krxq-responds-to-glaads-call-to-action/GLAAD has sent over key resources on transgender issues to inform the radio hosts on what kinds of obstacles transgender people face.
    In 2008, Ruby Molina was murdered in Sacramento for being transgender.

    In 2008, Ruby Molina was murdered in Sacramento for being a transgender woman.

    Rob Williams and Arnie States have become active contributors to a vicious cycle of ill-informed and cruel rhetoric. Such hateful speech has already shown its devastating effects on transgender people and the communities they belong to.

    In 2008 alone, the Transgender Day of Remembrance reported 21 murders of transgender and gender non-conforming people,

    It included this link to the program audio:

    I would hope this would be the final perverbial straw to break the camel's back to final turn a trash fire into a raging forest fire to get the full Hate Crimes legislation passed.icon_evil.gificon_evil.gificon_evil.gificon_evil.gif

    The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act / Matthew Shepard Act
    S. 909, H.R. 1913

    The Problem
    A hate crime occurs when the perpetrator of the crime intentionally selects the victim because of who the victim is. Hate crimes rend the fabric of our society and fragment communities because they target an entire community or group of people, not just the individual victim. However, in most cases, current law prevents the federal government from assisting state and local authorities.

    What is the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act / Matthew Shepard Act?
    The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (LLEHCPA)/Matthew Shepard Act gives the Department of Justice (DOJ) the power to investigate and prosecute bias-motivated violence by providing the DOJ with jurisdiction over crimes of violence where the perpetrator has selected the victim because of the person's actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.

    The Act provides the DOJ with the ability to aid state and local jurisdictions either by lending assistance or, where local authorities are unwilling or unable to act, by taking the lead in investigations and prosecutions of bias-motivated, violent crimes resulting in death or serious bodily injury. The LLEHCPA also makes grants available to state and local communities to combat violent crimes committed by juveniles, train law enforcement officers or assist in state and local investigations and prosecutions of bias-motivated crimes.

    No, meninlove ... transgender/transsexual is someone who feels they were born with the wrong body. Doesn't matter if they do or do not take hormones or have surgery.

    Transvestites or cross dressers are people who enjoy dressing up as the opposite sex. This includes straight men, too. (I know ... it sounds weird ... but a SIGNIFICANT number of transvestites are not gay.)

    So long as when I die. I come back as a man.

    I will admit I have trouble relating to a transgender. I'm content with being a male. But I don't see how some-one is born a female, lives life as a female, for 20 what ever years, then hay poof, look I'm now a man. Sorry it just dose not work for me. haveing yourself made up to look like a man, just does not make you one. Thats my thought.

    Sorry just because I'm a homosexual, don't see why I am expected to be accepting of every minority. I truly don't understand Transgender,and just because you can make yourself look like a male, does not make you one.

    But if I had a cross dressing child, I would not beat em, or abuse em. But I would not be buying my son a prom dress either.

    If that is your mindset then you would also believe that any man who waits to come out as gay until later in life is choosing to be gay?? He couldn't possibly be born that way otherwise he would have come out as Umm.. an infant? small child? teenager?

    You're a DUMBASS!!

    icon_eek.gif And people wonder where all the hate for gays and "feminine" boys in school comes from. From hateful adults maybe?? As I have said before, children are taught all this fomenting hate.

    Thanks FierceEyes and ActiveAndFit, we brought this up because the only person who can truly know if they are in the wrong body is the child, and we believe a child doesn't know enough about sexuality to make that call.

    For us this asshole radio person is referring to cross-dressing and exploring his feminine side (and the other side to this would be girls - tomboys) and using 'transgender' to attack adults. Clever but not clever enough, eh? Grrrr.

    Mr States is a horror show and we think he requires emergency surgery - a vasectomy. icon_lol.gif Perhaps a date with Lorena Bobbit.icon_lol.gif (OK that was mean, but hey...)

    I've encountered quite a few gay men who are very confused & awkward about the issue of transgenders and transvestites. We had several in our local gay club in Minnesota who weren't always well received, including one tranny who came in about once a month when her long-haul truck route brought her through town, leaving her big-rig parked right outside the door. LOL!

    She and the others always sought me out, because I liked them all, drank & danced with them, had a great time together. I also socialized with the cross-dressers we had, when few others would, guys who claimed to be straight, but who used our gay club because it was safe for them. One was even a US Army Reserve First Sergeant, which was a bond between us, and he served twice in Iraq, wearing women's undies beneath his desert uniform.

    In trying to comprehend the evil of those talk show hosts, maybe we likewise need to analyze our own feelings on this topic. Perhaps it's a dirty secret we don't like to admit that gays can also commit prejudice against those who are different.

    I've written here before that I myself don't care to hang around extremely femmy gays, finding most of them tedious, predictable, shallow, and way too emotional for my tastes. But I never shun them at clubs or parties as some others do, and can share some silly giggly moments with them. It's just that I don't want that in my life 24/7.

    I guess that makes me only half-prejudiced, I dunno. I think I have a right to likes & dislikes, but not to harm & hate. It seems to me those radio hosts are fully into harm & hate.

    No, you don't have to be accepting of every minority because you're a homosexual,. you need to be accepting of minorities because as a human you should accept your fellow brothers.

    And about that whole thing about being born a man... that is a load of crap. You aren't a man just cause you have a penis. I find it so frustrating when gay people say they don't understand transgendered individuals. You didn't choose to be gay! But when a straight person says it's a choice and you're just seeking attention what makes that any different than how you view transgendered.

    And frankly, with all the heinous abuse transgendered people put up with, I can't fathom why anyone would choose that. If you're willing to have your own dick cut off because it makes you that unhappy, then I'm pretty sure there's something more to it than just trying to step into the other gender's shoes.

    Sad as it is, I get the feeling that a lot of gays guys feel the same negative way about fem guys and so forth. I wonder how many would stand idly by while these young people are abused?

    Does anyone no if formal compliants have been filed with the FCC. In hopes of getting the station fined and/or the dj(erks) removed (unlikely).

    Is there any campaign against the radio station for allowing the use of inflamatory speech as is directed against these kids?

    He claimed to have done research on topic. I want to see the research he's done and the thesis which lead to his conclusion. I don't think there is none but frivolous pop media review.

    The current membership of the FCC was largely appointed by President Bush, and is therefore hostile to the concerns of the gay community. Plus there is law & precedent to protect free speech over the airwaves, upon which the FCC will rely to defend homophobic comments. Formal complaints are a waste of time. Perhaps we will see a change in a few years when President Obama has had an opportunity to replace some of the current FCC members.
