Megyn Kelly says her gay and lesbian friends want to expel transgender from their ranks, wanting to make it LGB, reports David Badash from The New Civil Rights Movement.

"Kelly did not say she has any transgender friends nor did she say she has been speaking with any transgender people but says her lesbian and gay friends believe transgender people should not be part of the LGB community."

Kelly made her remarks while speaking to "far-right extremist Steven Crowder, who has been accused of hurling 'racist, homophobic taunts,' been called 'overtly racist,' and who YouTube last year said was 'indicating that trans people pose a rape threat to women,' " adds Badash in his report published on the website AlterNet. "Crowder has also been called a 'Rape Culture Apologist,' and criticized for mocking transgender people's suicides."

"I've talked to a lot of gay and lesbian friends," Kelly announced, who "have said, 'I don't totally get why the T is at the end of LGBT,' and the Q and all. The interests aren't necessarily aligned," she claimed. It is a position, Badash adds, that is not shared by most in the LGBTQ community.

"In fact, if you look at like the trans activists — like the crazy trans, not like normal — whatever, the crazy trans activists are so vicious, and they, they're basically kind of doing conversion therapy on young gay men," she claimed.

" 'You're not gay, you're trans, you're secretly a girl,' " Kelly claimed some trans people are saying. " 'It's better to be trans than to be, queer, than to be than to be gay, just say that you're a girl, then you can get rid of that whole gay thing.' And we're seeing more and more of this," Kelly said.

"There is a question if the interests of the gay community are aligned, the way that GLAAD would have us believe," she added.
