The Tide Is Turning Against Transgender Activism

The Tide Is Turning Against Transgender Activism by Michael L. Brown for Ask Dr Brown

Just as we should have compassion on those who truly struggle with their gender identity, we should stand firmly against transgender activism. Thankfully, there are more and more signs that the tide is turning against this latest example of sociological contagion.

It is true that, in some significant ways, America is well behind a number of European nations which are reversing course much more rapidly than we are here in the States. In this regard, it appears that they are driven more by medical data (and perhaps common sense and even compassion?) than by radical ideologies.

Still, there are significant indicators that more and more Americans are saying, “Enough is enough.”

Before focusing on the States, though, let’s take a look at England, where it was reported last week that, “On the heels of the ordered closure of the infamous Tavistock gender clinic in London, which offered ‘gender-affirming care’ and puberty blockers to thousands of children over the years, news has broken that roughly 1,000 families will file a medical negligence lawsuit against the clinic.”

That number will certainly grow exponentially in the days ahead on a global level, as more and more detransitioners speak up and say to the medical profession, “What have you done to us?”

The satirical Babylon Bee website was hardly exaggerating when it reported, “In light of so-called ‘gender affirming care’ making the Hippocratic Oath silly and outdated, Harvard Medical School has officially adopted the new oath ‘Mutilate Kids For Money.’”

Already in 2009 Selwyn Duke could ask, “Sure, it strikes us as the most horrid malpractice when a doctor amputates healthy body parts, such as a pair of legs. But, then, should we call it something else just because those healthy body parts are between the legs?” (See also here.)

Given the radical nature of transgender activism and the ripple effect it is having on the larger culture, a pushback was inevitable. And so, while the current administration digs its heels in even more, the tide is turning against it.

Here are a few cases in point, both on the grassroots and the federal level.

Fox News reported on August 18 that, “An elite all-girls school in Nashville has paused implementation of a policy allowing applications from anyone who identifies as female after backlash from the community.

Last week, in an email to parents, Harpeth Hall School announced a new ‘Gender Diversity Philosophy,’ explaining a new admissions policy that would allow ‘any student who identifies as a girl’ to apply to the school.

“‘We recognize that this philosophy elicited strong reactions of support and opposition beyond our expectations,’ the school said in an email to the community obtained by Fox News Digital. ‘We care deeply about your feedback and we have heard you.’”
