Fox News Channel hailed the election of the first transgender member of the Minnesota state legislator.
“Breaking Barriers,” is how Fox described the election of Leigh Finke, a man with pink hair who thinks he’s a woman.
The network, which touts itself as family-friendly and faith-friendly, wrote a glowing story about what Finke called the rise of “Queer Political Power.”
Fox also gave a shout-out to the Victory Fund – “an organization that works to increase the number of openly LGBTQ elected officials at all levels of government.”
“Leigh made history tonight because she is ready to disrupt the status quo and fight for real change on behalf of her community,” Victory Fund president Annise Parker. “From safeguarding abortion rights to addressing societal inequities, she has a vision for the future that voters are clearly enthusiastic about. Her win is a clear and deafening rebuke to the transphobia currently sweeping our communities and her success will inspire other trans people to step up and run.”
Fox News also used Finke’s preferred pronouns instead of his God-given pronouns.
