A candidate to become governor of Kentucky has vowed to purge transgender kids from the state’s schools, in her bid for Republican nomination. On Monday (8 May), Kelly Craft – a former ambassador to the United Nations responded to phone callers’ questions ahead of the primary election on 16 May, where she made the cruel pledge. According to a transcript of the “town hall”, reported on by the Lexington Herald Leader, she said: “We will not have transgenders in our school system,” although she didn’t specify what action she planned to take. Referring to her running mate, senator Max Wise, in response to how she would “combat the transgender agenda in classrooms”, she said: “Under a Craft-Wise administration, we will not have transgenders in our school system,” later adding: “Under a Craft-Wise administration, we will not have transgender.”
