An 18-year-old clip from Comedy Central’s “South Park” drew commenters on Twitter because it both satirized and predicted certain aspects of transgender ideology.
The dark comedy South Park has satirized politicians on both sides of politics, but has recently been credited with predicting aspects of America’s future. According to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), an episode poking fun at transgender ideology first aired on March 9, 2005: “Mr. Garrison’s Fancy New Vagina.”
IMDB summarized the episode: “Mr. Garrison undergoes surgery and becomes a woman; Kyle has surgery to make him big and black so he can play basketball; Gerald decides he wants to be a dolphin.”

The viral clip revolves around a teacher, formerly Mr. Garrison, who, assuming he didn’t get his period because he was pregnant, goes to Planned Parenthood for an abortion appointment.
“Yeah, there’s one growing inside me, do you want to mess up his brain now or just suck it dry? Says Garrison with an awkwardly dry delivery while a nurse looks on in shock.

The doctor explains to Mr. Garrison, who identified himself as Mrs. Garrison at the time, “You are physically unable to perform an abortion because you cannot conceive,” and later adds, “You cannot have a period either, You’ve had a sex change operation, Mr. Garrison, but you don’t have ovaries or a uterus, you don’t produce eggs.”
Mr. Garrison later replies, “But I paid $5,000 to be a woman, that would mean I’m not really a woman, I’m just a guy with a mutilated penis.”
Chicks on the Right writer Natalie Argyle tweeted the clip, writing, “In one minute and 25 seconds @SouthPark said all the things we are not allowed to say about trans women and abortion. #trans #abortion #women #biologicalwomen #South Park.”
“Here’s South Park poking fun at the crazy idea that men can actually become women. This clip is from 2005,” wrote The Babylon Bee’s Seth Dillon.

“It’s also a brutally honest take on the callous cruelty of abortion. We need more taunts like this,” he later added.
“The 2005 South Park episode was straight to the point about trans and abortion,” the Hodgetwins wrote.
RedState Editor-in-Chief Brandon Morse wrote, “This clip goes viral and proves what South Park exaggerates today becomes reality tomorrow.”

“South Park wraps its cultural criticism in vulgarity and scandal, which helps camouflage, at least for a while, what would otherwise be punishable offenses,” he wrote.
