A confrontation between Sen. Ed Emery, R-Lamar, and a group of transgenders was reported widely last week and Emery is still talking about in his latest podcast.
"I guess they call themselves traansgenders," Emery said. "They were very vocal and pretty confrontational. I tried to talk with them for some time until they became so vulgar and profane it was time to terminate the conversation."
Emery continued noting that the transgenders think they "should be able to pretend to be whatever they want."
Emery compared someone being a transgender to him pretending to be a 12-year-old in sixth grade, which to some would be an accurate depiction of someone serving in the State Senate.
