FCC should impose fine for media ‘misgendering’ transgenders, says MSNBC guest

Leave it to a left-wing loon to call for the government to impose fines on media outlets that don’t call transgender people by their politically preferred name or pronoun — and the First Amendment be damned.

Danielle Moodie-Mills, who calls herself an “equality advocate,” appeared on MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” show Sunday advocating her Gestapo position.

“We need to stop misgendering people in the media,” she said, inventing another new word for liberals to use. “There needs to be some type of fine that’s put into place for outlets, for media outlets, whether they be print, online, radio or what have you that decide that they’re just not going to call people be their name, right, and that they’re going to misgender them just because they can.”

Ms. Moodie-Mills might not realize it, but “just because they can,” is another way of saying “the First Amendment guarantees their right to do it.” But being a liberal, she doesn’t worry about niceties like that.

And who does she propose set the standard for the media to follow? A group that started out being called the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation but now just goes by its snappier acronym.

“There are guidelines that have been put in place by GLAAD, right, that have been put out to all press outlets,” she said. “And if you don’t follow them you should be fined by the FCC. It should be that serious.”

And she is serious.

The First Amendment be damned.
