ACTION: DETRANSITIONERS SILENCED BY MAINSTREAM MEDIA

THE ISSUE:

Detransitioners (mostly women) are coming out on social media in droves. This phenomenon is being silenced in the media, while this same media is framing current bills to protect children with gender dysphoria against a lifetime of medicalization as bigoted.

Why does the media frame “misgendering” as “violent” but ignores the actual violence of hormonal/surgical procedures upon children’s bodies and health? Why does the media silence the people who have lived and suffered this actual violence and thus enable eugenics against gay people?

Whose interest is the media serving?

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Tweet, retweet and share on social media the tweets listed below.
