WASHINGTON — Last weekend on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Show, pundit Danielle Moodie-Mills suggested that traditional and digital media outlets should get fined by the FCC every time they mis-gendered transgender people.
On yesterday’s edition of Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly weighed in on the suggestion, saying, “So this loon wants to fine us if we misgender-ize — which, I don’t even know what that means!”
“Well, you call Caitlyn Jenner ‘he,'” replied Imus in the Morning executive producer Bernard McGuirk. “That — then you get a fine.”
“Pardon me for saying this,” O’Reilly concludes, “but from the waist down, he is a ‘he.’ According to ‘she.'”
