Sacramento radio show encourages beating transgendered, questioning kids

Rob, Arnie and Dawn ShowGranted it’s a comedy show by some crude and talent-impaired shock jocks (and one semi-reasonable jockette), but give me a break. It’s dehumanizing talk like this that nudges someone to act out and hurt someone. Listen to audio from the Rob, Arnie and Dawn Show if you can stomach it. Discussion starts around the 4:45 mark.

It’s easy to forget sometimes living here in this bubble called San Francisco that we are just an hour or two away from such intense prejudice and intolerance. Oh wait a minute, Michael Savage broadcasts from San Francisco. So much for that theory.

GLAAD has now called for an apology from the show.

    I’m glad I live in London.

    I do agree that children should be monitored instead of encouraged at a very young age. However, like Dawn says, if at 18 or 21 they still feel the same way, then they should be accepted.

    Goodness. I feel so disgusted with the listeners and the presenters. Ugh, this shouldn’t have been the way I start my day.
