Conservative writer and radio host Dennis Prager has let loose with one of the dumbest hot takes about transgender people ever uttered.
Transgender men doesn’t exist, he claims, because women don’t insult each other often enough.
“Can you really become a male or a female if you’re born the other,” he asked as he warmed up. “I don’t believe you can. We’re too different psychologically as well as physiologically. And the psychological is much harder to change.”
“You can’t have a psychology surgery like you can have a mastectomy,” he continued as he dug deep into his pool of wisdom. “It just doesn’t happen.”
Between awkward pauses meant to make him look thoughtful, Prager admits he has some questions.
“Guys insult each other if they really like each other. Will a trans man begin to do that, given that it is not female nature to do that? Do you abandon your nature when your abandon your genitalia?”
Prager is the host of the rightwing radio show The Dennis Prager Show and is perhaps best known for co-founding PragerU, a non-profit organization that makes videos to “educate” conservatives on various topics. PragerU is not an academic institution, and Prager himself does not possess a graduate degree.
Last year, he proclaimed that gay men never experienced being treated like “pariahs” during the AIDS crisis the way that people who weren’t willing to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Something tells me Dennis abandoned his genitalia long ago

Does Prager think women don’t know how to roast people? Because his mom roasted him good when she gave him that face and body.

What? Clearly this man has never dealt with women…nor has he watched any of "The Real Housewives of…." shows.

I love how trans discourse has now been reduced to "ok but does biology allow trans people roast other people?"

Then I must like Dennis Prager, because when I see him all I can think of are insults.
