Some on the Left Are Worried That the Transgender Craze Has Gone ‘Too Far’

Transgender orthodoxy has moved so far past the bounds of sanity that any attempt to question its effects is quickly discouraged and punished.
We are expected to shut up and accept that public schools are passing policies to keep students’ gender identity transitions from parents, that medical professionals (Link): can file to remove children from their parents’ custody if parents oppose physical and chemical transition efforts, that a young man competed on a women’s swimming team and took home a women’s championship title, and that a man who claimed to identify as a woman was allowed into a women’s prison where he (Link): impregnated two of his fellow prisoners .
None of this is normal or even remotely defensible, and everyone, including many on the Left, know it.
Few on the Left, however, are willing to say so out loud …
…And healthcare professionals who are now being encouraged by the Biden administration to alter the bodies physically and chemically of gender-confused minors are starting to raise concerns about the permanence of such drastic interventions and ask whether there is any data to back them up at all.
One of these medical experts is Erica Anderson, a transgender doctor who has been at the forefront of transgender care in the U.S. and recently spoke out against administering hormone therapy or other irreversible treatments to youths.
“I think it’s gone too far,” Anderson (Link): said . “For a while, we were all happy that society was becoming more accepting and more families than ever were embracing children that were gender variant. Now it’s got to the point where there are children presenting at clinics whose parents say, ‘This just doesn’t make sense.’
I have these private thoughts: ‘This has gone too far. It’s going to get worse. I don’t want any part of it. I worry that people will accuse me of setting the train in motion, as part of those who advocated the affirmative approach to gender in youth, even though that’s not a reasonable account of what happened.’”
Anderson is far from the only expert concerned about the radical trajectory transgenderism has taken.
