‘This Guy Is The Homecoming Queen’: Bryan Fischer Jumps On Anti-Trans Bully Bandwagon

Post image for ‘This Guy Is The Homecoming Queen’: Bryan Fischer Jumps On Anti-Trans Bully Bandwagon

Cassidy Lynn Campbell was joyous when she was named Homecoming Queen of her very conservative Orange County, California high school last Friday. By Saturday, the anti-trans bullies had attacked her, and she posted a nine-minte video explaining how and why their hate and ignorance hurt so much.

Across the country, in Mississippi, Bryan Fischer could just smell the opportunity to jump on the bigot bandwagon. Perhaps you might expect children and teenagers to be cruel and hate filled, but an old man, a supposed church leader and the top spokesperson for a “pro-family” organization? Why would Bryan Fischer be that juvenile and hate-filled?

Because he’s Bryan Fischer, the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, and he actually gets paid to hate.

(By the way, the American Family Association is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, so your tax dollars are supporting Fischer’s attack on Cassidy Lynn Campbell.)

Fischer did not mince words, or even recognize that he was beating up a child.

“He has a mental illness, he thinks he’s a girl and they elected him homecoming queen and the school officials allowed this charade to go on,” Fischer proclaimed to his million or so listeners who tune in daily to the hundreds of American Family radio stations that litter 38 American states. “That violates everything we know about gender, about sex, about genetics, about biology, about human health, about what mental health is, it violates every known standard of decency and normality in America.”

Apparently, Fischer didn’t hear the Pope’s words last week.

When Cassidy Campbell first won the crown, the 16-year old had said, “I was so proud to win, not just for me but for everyone out there. I think it really shows the progression of the times.”

She was forced to change her tune quickly.

Just twenty-four hours later, she announced, “I’m so sad and so distraught and so broken down and so upset and so deteriorated and so tired of the world. I’m tired of life. And I know I need to be strong for the kids that I did this for and people I did this for, but I can’t right now.”

Bryan Fischer just couldn’t help himself.

He's so mean. Why would ANYBODY be mean to a 16 year old youth?
Why? What makes you feel good about hurting a youth like that?

Normally, I say nothing about Bryan Fischer because he's like that old, crotchety uncle you have at family gatherings who says horrible things and never shuts up, so you basically ignore him. However, this instance crosses the line for me. This goes from inane blathering (which is Fischer's norm) to downright meanness and cruelty. I don't know what made him think it was OK to attack a specific underaged girl on national radio. That is disgusting.

Oh yeah, and Bryan, we have moved on from your ideas about gender, sex, genetics, biology, human health, and mental health; we know much more than what you think is common knowledge. We recognize that gender and sex are not synonymous terms. We recognize gender dysphoria as a medical condition. We recognize that the treatment for gender dysphoria is transition. Finally, we recognize that every human is entitled to dignity and respect and that it is unfair and rude to attack people who have done nothing to you, especially when you are a national figure and the person you're attacking is underaged.

We need to start boycotting any sponsor of his broadcasts. And let the sponsor know, by writing them, emailing them and so on. Its working against Rush Limberger and it will work against this paranoid skitzo
