HUD Secretary Ben Carson is under attack from the left, who claim he’s discriminating against LGBTQ individuals in HUD-funded homeless shelters.
In a meeting with staff last week, the Secretary addressed the concern of men entering women’s shelters, which some characterized as ‘transphobia’ towards the transgender community.
“I had heard from many women’s groups about the difficulty they were having with women’s shelters because sometimes men would claim to be women,” Secretary Carson said. “This made many of the women feel unsafe, and one of the groups described a situation to me in which ‘big hairy men’ would come in and have to be accepted into the women’s shelter even though it made the women in the facility very uncomfortable.”
Secretary Carson has said in the past that he believes in equal treatment for all – but not special treatment.
The Democrats have expanded the definition of ‘discrimination’ far too wide. They’re fighting to allow allow transgender men, or any man who claims to “identify” as a woman regardless of their physical characteristics, into women-only shelters. This would do Americans a great disservice and endanger women who already have more than likely been through difficulties.
“My point was that we have to permit policies that take into consideration the rights of everybody, including those women,” Secretary Carson said in a statement.
The Fake News Media is trying to paint the Trump Administration as a discriminatory enemy, but the truth is — the Trump Administration is working for safety and equality for all.
