Tucker Carlson compares gender-affirming care to murder Written by Media Matters Staff Published 09/06/22 8:38 PM EDT Video file Citation From the September 6, 2022, edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Most people accept this by default, but we should never accept this under any circumstances. To accept something is to concede that it is more or less normal. Once we acknowledge something as normal -- whether it’s children being castrated in the name of trans rights or women being murdered by rapists who should've been in prison but weren’t because of equity -- once we accept that as normal, we are stuck with it forever. It is the new status quo. It will never change except to get worse. This headline has been updated for clarity.
