Old clips the classic children’s TV show ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ are circulating on social media and triggering people on the left because what Rogers is saying clashes with the progressive view on transgenderism.
In our current environment, it’s easy to forget that the left’s view on this issue was considered far outside the mainstream just a few years ago.
What Fred Rogers says in these videos is still the view held by most Americans, despite the efforts of the media and Hollywood to normalize it.

Resurfaced ‘Mister Rogers’ video features iconic TV star seemingly warning against transgenderism among kids
An old clip of beloved children’s TV star Mister Rogers that resurfaced on TikTok in recent days had internet users wondering if the “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” character was warning society against promoting transgenderism among young children more than 40 years ago.
The clip, which made the rounds on the popular social media platform, featured the late TV icon Fred Rogers singing his song, “Everybody’s Fancy.”
The lyrics of the tune contain a simple message about boys’ and girls’ bodies having inherent differences and encourage children to find beauty and acceptance in those obvious differences.
In the video, Rogers sang the first stanza: “Boys are boys from the beginning, girls are girls right from the start. Everybody’s fancy, Everybody’s fine. Your body’s fancy and so is mine.”
In the subsequent stanza, Rogers sang about gender roles exclusive to each sex. He sang, “Girls grow up to be the mommies, boys grow up to be the daddies. Everybody’s fancy, Everybody’s fine. Your body’s fancy and so is mine.”

Rogers elaborated on this point during an appearance on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Watch:
Mister Rogers knew something way back in 1980 and tried to warn us. We laughed at him because we thought what he said was silly and nonsense.

It’s a stark reminder about how far and fast we have drifted in our culture, which is precisely why it bothers the left.
