A gay rights media watchdog group is demanding an apology for remarks aired during a radio segment on transgender kids broadcast on Sacramento's KRXQ radio station.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) said the radio segment promoted “child abuse” in an email alert.

During the May 28 broadcast of the Rob, Arnie & Dawn in the Morning radio show, hosts Rob Williams and Arnie States raised hackles from the group with comments offered in a segment on transgender children. GLAAD called the comments “cruel, dehumanizing and defamatory.”

“If my son, God forbid, if my son put on a pair of high heels, I would probably hit him with one of my shoes,” States said. “I would throw a shoe at him. Because you know what? Boys don't wear high heels. And in my house, they definitely don't wear high heels.”

“[T]hey are freaks,” Williams said. “They are abnormal. Not because they're girls trapped in boys bodies but because they have a mental disorder that needs to be somehow gotten out of them.”

“You got a boy saying, 'I wanna wear dresses.' I'm going to look at him and go, 'You know what? You're a little idiot! You little dumbass! Look, you are a boy! Boys don't wear dresses,'” States said. And about eight minutes later added, “You know, my favorite part about hearing these stories about the kids in high school, who the entire high school caters around, lets the boy wear the dress. I look forward to when they go out into society and society beats them down.”

“We hope that KRXQ holds hosts Rob Williams and Ernie (sic) States accountable for their defamatory remarks that encouraged violence against transgender children,” Rashad Robinson, senior director of media programs at GLAAD, told the Sacramento Bee. “Their claims about transgender people were cruel and dehumanizing and showed a lack of standards that we hope the station will work to immediately rectify.”

KRXQ officials have said the hosts would respond to the allegations on air Wednesday.
