LGBTQ activist Mark Purpura tried defending a new proposal in Delaware on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday that would allow children, through the assistance of their school, to change their gender or race without informing that child’s parents.
“The simple fact is that some parents are simply not going to be supportive of their child and may endanger the child’s safety or well-being to involve that parent in that decision,” Purpura, executive director of Equality Delaware explained.
“Who makes that decision?” Tucker Carlson countered.
“The school would make the decision but I think what’s missing here,” Purpura began to answer before Carlson, a Daily Caller co-founder, took control of the conversation.
“What’s missing is outrage,” he shot back at Purpura. “The school has no right to take away parental decision-making from parents. The children do not belong to school administrators. They are members of the family from which they came. How dare a school take that prerogative away from parents. Where did they get the right to do that?”
The pair continued to shout over each other until Purpura made the argument that the Deleware legislation isn’t that revolutionary.
“This regulation is similar to policies that have been implemented across the country in Oregon and Washington and Massachusetts,” he argued.
“Ok, going back like about six months,” Carlson laughed. “This has never happened in human history. We didn’t used to believe three years ago that you could change your sex or your race. So this is all brand new. So at least pay me the compliment of acknowledging this is brand new. This has never been tried.”
