He's far from discredited, and is one of the most popular people speakers in the world right now.

Anyone can be a public speaker & have a YouTube channel, that doesn't make him credible.

You have yet to provide any peer reviewed works to back up your claims. Everything your are saying is purely emotional. Several people have backed up what they have said with research, you have just blabbered on with nothing. When will you give us facts?

If gender is just a social construct, why do they treat it medically? If gender is social, then just advise your social circle that you are now a ______ and be done with it. No? Not enough? Then perhaps gender isn't a social construct after all. Perhaps there is indeed a physical/mental/emotional element...? This is truly insane...

Oh, for heaven's sake! This has reached the level of a strawman. NO ONE HERE has made that claim and the OP has failed to produce a credible example of any reputable scientist doing so, either.

He's one of the most popular people speakers?!? I was ready to argue that he has no credit or relevance from a scientific standpoint AT ALL, but now that you've pointed out he is one of the most popular people speakers in the world right now, I change my mind....

Perhaps you, too, should step away from your high horse and get some perspective. Quit pretending you know everything. A great number of teens - particularly younger teens, get on the transgender train for various reasons. One that I see most often is that they will often admit during therapy sessions that they "became" transgender because they have been picked on and bullied and they see being transgender as being part of a protected class. They have found that if they say they want to be a boy, or vice-versa, then there is a group of peers who will jump to their defense if anyone tries to pick on them. Some even claim to be transgender because it actually caused them to feel popular. This isn't my opinion. This is directly from the mouths of the kids themselves. Less than 1/3 of the kids in psych hospitals who say they are transgender truly want to change sexes. Some are simply homosexual and they have the idea that if they are a girl who likes girls, then she must actually be a boy. And political correctness is only pushing it on them. Please note, I have not said there are no true transgender individuals. But there are not as may as it may appear on the surface. Many are just confused or misguided.

Just because he has a degree doesn't make him qualified.

What about the Fa'afafine? Should we force them to assume the gender roles you believe are "traditional" of their sex at birth or their traditional gender roles that exist for them in their culture? Other cultures "traditionally" have non-binary genders. It's not all that uncommon. Which "traditions" are "correct"?

I learn something new everyday, thanks! Interesting!

Oh. Great.

You're back.

My thoughts exactly!! I didn't mind the missing posts about pot, porn and the OPs seemingly 50 year nursing career.

If he's so popular, why have so many of us not heard of him?

He actually doesn't have that many qualifications & much experience. He's taught a little, wrote a book, & has a YouTube channel. Nothing that stands out & makes me go "wow"!
