HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson dismissed the attacks lobbed at him by the Washington Post and other left-wing media because he believes there are two genders.
Specifically, Dr. Carson — a world-renowned brain surgeon — underscored that he has no issues with transgender individuals, but noted that you can’t “change” your gender simply by saying you’re a woman if you’re biologically born a male.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said: “I want to ask you about how you are responding to the ‘Washington Post’ attacks on you this morning. You are an eminent physician, a world-famous physician. And here you have had the local newspaper lecturing you about science. I wonder if you could clarify: If someone decides to change his or her gender, does that mean that that person’s gender automatically changes? In other words, if I say I am a woman, am I?”
Dr. Carson replied: “Obviously it doesn’t. If I wake up tomorrow and I ‘feel like’ I’m Chinese, it doesn’t necessarily make me Chinese. There are biological and scientific issues that have to be dealt with [when you’re transgender]. But regardless of that, I have always said we are supposed to serve all the people. And if somebody wants to be transgender, that’s fine. We try to serve them as well.”
He added: “I have offered transgender groups an opportunity to let me know what their solution would be so that everybody’s rights are observed. I haven’t heard one peep [from them].”

Ben Carson was attacked by the Washington Post for allegedly expressing concern about “big, hairy men” trying to enter women’s homeless shelters. Carson supposedly made the remarks during an internal meeting at a San Francisco HUD office.
Dr. Carson is apparently worried than men might try to camouflage themselves as transgender women to enter women’s shelters, potentially leading to rapes or other assaults.
The Washington Post and the political Left immediately attacked Carson as transphobic.
Tucker asked: “What’s that like being dismissed as a bigot? How would you respond to that?” Carson replied:
“You know, it’s the same as the president being called a ‘racist’ for virtually anything he does or doesn’t do. They [the left-wing media] have already made up their mind that I hate transgender people, which is completely untrue.
The bible tells us that we have to love everybody and that Jesus died for everybody. But it also tells you that if you stick to biblical principles, you will be persecuted. So I am not surprised. But it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t always continue to try to do what is right, and let the chips fall where they may.”
As BizPac Review reported, a BBC documentary that will be used in elementary schools to indoctrinate children ages 9-12 claims there are 100 different gender identities.
Meanwhile, American taxpayers will be happy to learn that their tax dollars are being lavishly spent to care for illegal aliens who are transgender.
In fact, ICE spends more than $250 million a year on medical care and hormone drugs for these trans aliens.
In January 2017, transgender individuals were allowed to enlist in the U.S. military for the first time, as ordered by the federal courts — in defiance of President Trump’s transgender ban.
To prepare, biologically female soldiers trained to shower with transgender women.
The Family Research Council estimates the total cost of transgender recruits at $1.9 billion to $3.7 billion over the next 10 years.
Some lawmakers also pointed out that transgender military recruits undergoing transition surgery can’t be deployed for almost a year.
And yes — you, the hardworking U.S. taxpayer — are footing the bill for all this too.
