Back in 2016, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg made elitist
and demeaning comments about Midwestern rubes who are too uneducated to support transgender bathroom access. The remarks, which resurfaced on
Friday, illustrate the patronizing attitude many pro-transgender
activists have toward those who dare to disagree with the view that
gender identity overrides biological sex. Ironically, transgender
activists were triggered by how the former mayor insulted the
Midwesterners who disagree with them.
Speaking to an audience at Oxford University and addressing the Brexit
vote, Bloomberg said, "We, the intelligentsia, the people who could
make it into this room, we believe a lot of things in terms of equality
and protecting individual rights that make no sense to the vast bulk of people."
"They are not opposed to you having some rights, but there's a
fundamental disconnect between us believing the rights of the
individual come first and the general belief around the world, I think
it's fair to say, that the rights of society comes first," Bloomberg continued.
