The same thing happens in other institutions as well.   Once trusted newspapers, like The Guardian, The Sydney Morning Herald, the Daily Mail and The New York Times have become almost caricatures of Pravda the ironically named Russian State newspaper.

Banned Practice: YouTube Takes Censorship to Trans Debate

Nov 9, 2019 by

But when it comes to giving a girl who thinks she’s a boy a double mastectomy, the same organization thinks parents should “respect” their kids’ wishes.
