Bruce went on to slam the school for the use of the controversial book as “social engineering” by teachers. She said that the school’s lesson plan was not impressive. She added-
“At one point when I was a child, I thought I was a cocker spaniel, and there’s a point when we have these fantasies where we think we’re Superman, where we can fly, where we’re the cat. This is childhood.”
She had also pre-tweeted about the matter of discussion in the program mentioning that it would be broadcasted @615ET the same day.

In the year 2015, Tammy had also defended Indiana Pizzeria who had hypothetically said that they would not oblige a same-sex wedding due to religious convictions. She said-
“For me, as a gay woman, it remains shocking. You sit back and watch this frenzy, like a wolf pack, going after survivors in a way with like a pizza shop. And if there’s anyone in the world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority—of being somebody that maybe others don’t understand or relate to, the vulnerability about work and jobs, being able to live your life as you see fit—it’s the gay community.”
For her dedication and hard work, the proud gay woman was also praised by President Trump as he said that everytime he sees the Fox pundit on TV, he wants to call her to thank her but later realizes that the president must not do that.
