Bill Maher Has Gone Too Far With Anti-LGBTQ+ Comments

Real Time With Bill Maher, it feels like 1993 all over again, although this time it’s different and even more frightening.On last Friday’s Real Time With Bill Maher, Maher said the number of youth identifying as LGBTQ+ is rising because it's “trendy,” while he spewed other harmful, homophobic and transphobic rhetoric.

Maher continued his vitriolic commentary by taking several more potshots at LGBTQ+ youth, including claims that society was “experimenting” on children through the use of puberty blockers and genital surgery as a means to perpetuate culture wars.

Maher correlated his comments on “trendiness” with statistics on LGBTQ+ youth in California versus other states, like Ohio, claiming that “either Ohio is shaming them or California is creating them.”  Back in 1993, I would chalk this up to ignorance and truly believed education would help folks to critically think and change, and it did.
