It's the undeniable truth that transgenders cannot deny. If gender is a social construct then how does one know what they are before being told what a girl or boy is? This make believe crap has gone on for too long and young children are now pressured into becoming a freakshow because it's the new fad among liberal communities. His guest stumbles through a response then says, "Why are we talking about this again?" Triggered.

I haven't seen someone make that point before. Feminism and SJW identity politics are so flawed and inconsistent. Feelings over facts.

I honestly don't care what people call themselves. I don't know why it bothers anyone else if people wanna be what they wanna be as long as it's not forced on others.

not really. it is generally conservatives who insist on an immutable black and white gender identity based entirely on one's plumbing at birth. There is a great deal of scientific evidence that suggests gender actually exists along a continuum based largely on such factors as body chemistry and fetal brain development which isn't always in alignment with an individual's genitalia at birth.

"I identify as" is just another way if saying "I choose to be".

If people can change aspects of their body isn't that something to be celebrated? Thought of as amazing advances in technology allowing people to be who they want to be and to make their own choices in life? I don't understand why people get so angry about this and look down on those who choose to take advantage of this.

Um, no. I had a now deceased family member who was a transsexual, got the surgery and all, and was not pressured into anything, furthermore had to stay in the closet until almost age 40, and it was after a suicide attempt that a psychiatrist recommended hormone therapy and sex reassignment surgery. And that was back in the 80s when almost no one even knew what a Transsexual or transgender was. So no one is pressuring anyone and it isn't a fad!

He didn't mention anything about gay people; you did, trying to put him in a logical trap
