Shocking Comments From Townhall Columnist Regarding Transgender Individual

Not in any way surprised by this, as it comes from the less than stellar on LGBT issues, but this was just downright offensive and hateful. In an article entitled "Steers Queers and Social Engineers" columnist Mike Adams writes about University of South Florida student Taylor McCue; a transgender student who was verbally harassed and made fun of. But Mike Adams goes beyond just describing the situation and offering his opinion on it. Instead, he goes off on a transphobic and hate-filled rant about transgender individuals and their supposed "confusion". Saying things like, 
 A transgender student at University of South Florida (USF) has now conclusively shown that once people become sufficiently open-minded their brains are likely to fall out and hit the ground. Frustrated and confused with his sexuality, Taylor McCue wanted to force USF to join colleges like Rutgers and Harvard, which are now offering students the option to live with anyone of any gender. And the USF administration has caved. Sissies!
....Taylor McCue has also complained that he has suffered from both "misogyny and homophobia," which is tough to accept given that Taylor McCue is a male. Having his penis surgically removed will not make him a female any more than having it re-attached to his nose will make him an elephant. But there’s no use telling him that. It might start a stampede – all in the name of tolerance, of course. Taylor McCue further claims that he hadn't begun taking female hormones yet when guys (real guys, not cross-dressers) on the floor of his dorm started asking about his sexuality, cracking jokes, and calling names. 
 Others around the Conservative blogosphere have picked up on this story, and have treated it the same way - with derision and condensation. Our favorite TeaPartyNation blogger - of LGBT bullying fame - Dr. Rich Swier said
It appears that Mr. McCue had great difficulty filling out a USF housing form that asks if he is male or female. Holy Batman - cognitive dissonance is alive in Taylor! This should not have been a problem because he has decided to be a woman. Or has he, or she, or whatever. Now even I am confused.
 Sometimes I feel sorry for such people as Mr. Adams and Dr. Swier, because of their obvious lack of self-worth (their articles are quintessential projection); but more often than not, I feel only pain for our transgender brothers and sisters who must, day in and day out, encounter such ridicule.
