I’ll just say this.. I don’t usually call out witnesses but here’s what the written testimony says, and this is Mrs. Heriot:
We are teaching young people a terrible lesson. “I believe that I am a Russian princess.” That doesn’t make me a Russian princess, even if my friends and acquaintances are willing to indulge my fantasy. Nor am I a great-horned owl just because, as I have been told, I happen to share some personality traits with those feathered creatures.
I’ve gotta say I found this rather offensive. It says, to me, that the witness really doesn’t know anything and probably has never met a transgender child, who is going through, in almost every case, a very difficult experience finding themselves. And I believe that the Department’s guidance will help schools all over the United States in preventing the kind of violence and harassment that these transgender kids find too often. That’s all I’m gonna say on that. I think it’s very regrettable that that comment was put into the record and I think it’s highly offensive. Well, now I would like to ask you a question Mr.–

She’s out of order.
My time Mr. Chairman…
[Chairman Steve King:]
We don’t call names in this committee and you will not be recognized to do that.
Mr. Chairman, it is my time. And I – I would just like to say that we allow witnesses to say offensive things, but I cannot allow that kind of bigotry to go into the record unchallenged. I don’t want to get into a debate about it…
Does that mean you think I am a Russian Princess?
I have no idea.
