Megyn Kelly slammed the transgender push on her third grade son at his former private school, calling it abuse, and said “it’s like they are trying to recruit” at schools, “it’s as if it’s recruiting ground.”

During Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast on Tuesday, the host talked to guest and Daily Wire host Andrew Klavan about how her son’s former New York City private school had pushed transgender issues on her son and the other kids in his class, asking them, “are you sure you are really a boy,” “you could possibly be a girl,” and here’s “how you’d become a girl.” She said her child was told about taking “puberty blockers” and said he had never had “any of these issues.” It starts at the 40:35 minute mark here.

“They were saying this to his entire third grade class,” Kelly explained. “Third grade class. You could take puberty blockers and then when you get to be 18 you can have an operation to have your penis chopped off and build a vagina. And you’ll be a woman.”


“I mean this literally happened to my son’s class of 8 and 9 year olds and hence we are no longer at that school,” she added. “Which is one of the best schools in the nation … but it’s not. No, it isn’t if they are abusing your child everyday … But if they’re punching your child in the face behind the scenes you would see how abusive it was. Well, that’s what they were effectively doing. These are rhetorical punches in the face and they were everyday and they were everywhere.”

Klavan said, “the first thing is that child is your charge” and not the school’s. That happens at the 43:16 minute mark.

“They didn’t create them,” Andrew replied. “They don’t care for them. They are not responsible for them, you are.”

He also explained how the school is “violating a basic first principle of your rights” and that their job is to teach kids to read.

The former Fox News host replied with what she said is the school’s argument for pushing gender ideology on kids — comments like, “Well, you know, your child’s going to kill himself if you don’t get more affirmative,” and, “Unlike you, we care about him, unlike you, we care about your child’s mental health and his well being.” That comes at the 46:16 minute mark.

“That’s really what they do to parents now when it comes to this transgender stuff and their justification for not looping parents in if a child under these enormous pressures starts to submit just to get people off their back and like, ‘Okay yeah maybe I’m a girl,'” the host shared.

“I mean truly it’s like they are trying to recruit,” she added. “It’s as if it’s a recruiting ground.”

Kelly then talked to Klavan about something he said on his latest podcast — “okay, groomer” — in response to activists against the parent’s rights law in Florida claiming it was the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Megyn said it was “something you could say to these teachers” in response to all the pushing regarding gender.

Klavan agreed and talked about the passage of the bill in Florida, saying, “There is no excuse … to talk to a third grader about his sexuality.” He also noted how when he was a kid “the police used to come and visit our classroom and teach us that if anyone did that you should call the cops, now they want to make a Disney movie about it.”(Disclosure: The Daily Wire has announced plans for kids entertainment content.)
