A Republican candidate for the Texas House of Representatives while promoting “school choice” cited her time as a school teacher, saying transgender students made her uncomfortable.
At a candidate forum, Shelly Luther told the audience she was upset that she was not allowed to let other students laugh at their transgender peers. “I am not comfortable with the transgenders,” Luther said, NBC News reports. “The kids that they brought in my classroom, when they said that this kid is transgendering into a different sex, that I couldn’t have kids laugh at them,” she said,” pausing for several seconds, apparently realizing what she had just said.
After the long pause, she added, “…like other kids got in trouble for having transgender kids in my class. That’s why I vote for school choice.” Equality Texas CEO Ricardo Martinez told NBC News, “Lamenting not being able to allow students to laugh at, bully and harass transgender kids isn’t leadership, it’s cruelty plain and simple.” The online anger over Luther’s remarks is palpable.
