Sacramento Radio Hosts Encourage Violence Against Transgender Children

Huffington Post: KRXQ Sacramento Radio Hosts Encourage Violence Against Transgender ...

Even by the flexible moral, ethical, and professional standards of American talk radio, the May 28th segment of KRXQ 98.5 FM Sacramento's Rob, Arnie, & Dawn in the Morning radio talk show makes for a sickening half-hour of ugliness and cruelty. For once, the focus was not LGBT adults, but minors. The hosts, Rob Williams and Arnie States, devoted the segment in question to a vicious diatribe against transgender children, some as young as five, focusing in particular on the case of one Omaha family raising a gender dysphoric child, and their decision to support her transition from male to female.

GLAAD Call to Action
June 4, 2009 — On June 2 GLAAD issued a Call to Action in response to defamatory and dehumanizing comments made on KRXQ-FM’s May 28th edition of the Rob, Arnie & Dawn in the Morning radioshow in Sacramento, California. The show is also heard on KDOT-FM in Reno, Nevada. Radio hosts Rob Williams and Arnie States made the remarks which included advocating child abuse of transgender children. Hundreds of LGBT people and allies across the nation contacted the program to voice their serious concerns. That prompted the hosts to devote the entire June 3 broadcast to addressing this issue.
