Former “Transgenders” Talk About De-“Transitioning”
by Laurie Higgins, Illinois Family Institute:
“Progressives” promote the lie that “gender identity” is immutable in order to rationalize and normalize an incoherent ideology and destructive medical “treatments.” Leftists desperately hope that the mainstream press, always in thrall to sexual radicalism, will avert its gaze from the growing “de-transitioning” movement.
