Bill O’Reilly: Caitlyn Jenner Is A “He” From The “Waist Down” (VIDEO)
On Tuesday’s “The O’Reilly Factory,” the Fox News personality did a segment on misgendering, whereby people are said to be of a certain gender, regardless of what they actually identify as. O’Reilly brought up the topic because of a “loon” who suggested that outlets be fined for not correctly identifying transgender people. O’Reilly expressed confusion over the issue, and that’s when Jenner was brought up as an example.
Guest Bernard McGuirck said, “Well, if you call Caitlyn Jenner ‘he,’ then you’d get a $50,000 fine.” O’Reilly interrupted and stated matter-of-factly, “Pardon me for this, but from the waist down, he is a ‘he,’ according to ‘she.'” O’Reilly explained he was just trying to be “accurate,” and McGuirck responded, “That could change, I guess. I cringe at the idea.”
According to most standards and practices, a person is to be identified with the gender they associate, regardless of physical attributes. Jenner has not revealed any plans to undergo gender reassignment surgery, but is living her life as a woman, and expects to be addressed as such. Watch the O’Reilly video below, and tell us what you think.
