Youngkin Pushes ‘Gender Neutral Bathrooms,’ Legitimizes Woke ‘1619 Project’ Live on CNN

Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin expressed support for “gender-neutral bathrooms” and implied that he supports the widely derided woke talking points of the “1619 Project” during a town hall appearance on CNN this week.

During the town hall, a transgender student asked Youngkin, “Look at me. I am a transgender man. Do you really think that the girls in my high school would feel comfortable sharing a restroom with me?”

“I believe first when parents are engaged with their children, then you can make good decisions together, and I met your dad, and I’m glad you’re both here together,” Youngkin said. “That’s really, really important.”

“I also think that there are lots of students involved in this decision,” the governor added. “And what’s – what’s most important is that we try very hard to accommodate students. That’s why I have said many, many times, we just need extra bathrooms in schools. We need gender neutral bathrooms. And so, people can use a bathroom that they in fact are comfortable with.”

Later during the interview, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Youngkin what he would say to a left-wing teacher to wants to teach divisive and revisionist racial concept to young children.

“Yeah, well I, well, first of all, me must step back and teach all of that,” Youngkin said, noting “And then we need to recognize where we are today.”

Conservative audiences on social media delivered a mixed reception to Youngkin’s comments.
