加里森还是一个种族主义者，他的这一特点在"圣诞便便汉基先生"中首次表现出来：他建议将墨西哥人排除出圣诞节。这在"加拿大的圣诞节"中再次出现，市长愤怒地回答道：“加里森先生，每年你都提出这样的建议但我们每年的答复都是不行！”。在"邻居来也"中，当富有的黑人们移居到了南方公园时，加里森集结了镇上的男人们想要赶他们走。加里森等人披上白床单装扮成“幽灵”来恐吓黑人们并在他们的房子前竖立起了燃烧的十字架，这样的标志寓意着：“是时候该滚了！”（Time to Leave）。当黑人们被驱逐后，加里森建议将他们遗留的豪宅卖掉大赚一笔，但其他人并没有同意。这时加里森说道：“至少我们赶走那些可恶的黑-（Nig-）”（此时画面被切换），这充分暴露出了他的原始动机。加里森也是三K党成员，但他说只有帽子先生才是，这有反映了他用玩偶来掩盖自己内心的矛盾。尽管如此，加里森却和学校里的黑人员工大厨相处得很好，她甚至在大厨的葬礼上掩面哭泣。

Mr. Garrison has had both male and female relationships before, during and after his sex change, because of this it's unclear what his sexuality is, it is likely that he is bisexual or pansexual.
Mr. Garrison starting dating Mr. Slave in "[Death Camp of Tolerance|The Death Camp of Tolerance]", this relationship lasted until his sex change operation. They had a falling out in "[That Egg!|Follow That Egg!]", where Mr. (at the time, Ms.) Garrison tried to sabotage Mr. Slave's and [Gay Al|Big Gay Al]'s wedding. Its hinted in "[Funny|Not Funny]" that Garrison might still have some feelings for Slave.
Richard Dawkins was Ms. Garrison's first boyfriend since the sex change operation. This relationship was formed in "[God Go|Go God Go]" when Richard asks her on a date, He also successfully "converted" her to Atheism though this was probably just said because she was afraid to lose the first man who has found her attractive, in the future they get married and rid the world of religion, however thanks to [Cartman|Eric Cartman] who uses the [Prank Time Phone|time phone in] "[God Go XII|Go God Go XII]" to contact Mr. Garrison he reveals to Richard the truth about the sex change operation and doing so proceeds Richard to break up with her and runs out of the house in disgust.
Allison was one of the women who Ms. Garrison experimented with in "[]" and officially made her a lesbian, it is unclear if they were dating or just friends with benefits, however after the events of the episode it may be clear that they never spoke again.

- [Hat|Mr. Hat] is known to be a racist, member of KKK, in "[Goes Nanners|Chef Goes Nanners]" and Mr. Garrison stays out of the KKK and apologizes to an irate [] for Mr. Hat's involvement.

He is also spotted during town meetings suggesting to get rid of all the Mexicans as shown in "[Hankey, the Christmas Poo|Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo]" and "[Christmas in Canada|It's Christmas in Canada]".
- When Mr. Garrison shows off his new boobs in "[Garrison's Fancy New Vagina|Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina]", while grotesque looking, they are more or less equal in shape and size. However in "[God Go|Go God Go]", when his reveals them again, they are even more misshapen, with one being notably smaller than the other. This may be due to one of them being damaged in "[Days Before the Day After Tomorrow|Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow]".
- Mr. Garrison carries a gun with him to class, it is unknown why and it also unknown why he didn't use it when his whole class was held hostage in Pioneer Village in "[Fun Time|Super Fun Time]", although it could have been confiscated by the staff at school, the robbers, or he may have simply forgot to bring it.
