Bill Maher Takes on the Gender Rads

Bill Maher said:
“[I]t’s okay to ask questions about something that’s very new and involves children. The answer can’t always be that anyone from a marginalized community is automatically right, trump card, mic drop, end of discussion. Because we’re literally experimenting on children. Maybe that’s why Sweden and Finland have stopped giving puberty blockers to kids. Because we just don’t know much about the long-term effects, although common sense should tell you that when you reverse the course of raging hormones, there’s going to be problems. We do know it hinders the development of bone density — which is kind of important if you like having a skeleton — fertility and the ability to have an orgasm seem also to be affected. This isn’t just a lifestyle decision. It’s medical. Weighing trade-offs is not bigotry.”

A biased report by Raw Story.

A predictable response from GLAAD.

Protecting Gay Youth

Rob Jessel and Hassan Mamdani, below, concluded: “Many gay men who can remember rampant homophobia feared it would raise its ugly head again. None of us thought it would return draped in the rainbow flag, championed by the charities that once worked to protect us.”

And worth repeating: “We’re Lesbians on the Autism Spectrum. Stop Telling Us to Become Men”
