In Brief: Trans Propaganda Accidentally Reveals the Horrific Truth

The leftist ideology behind the “transgender” movement, especially regarding kids, is grossly deceptive.

Matt Walsh has made a name for himself in large part by opposing the “transgender” movement. His documentary “What Is a Woman?” was a fantastic rebuttal, often by using the activists’ own words to illustrate the insanity. In a recent op-ed, he adds to the myth-busting.

If there’s one thing trans activists desperately do not want you to do, under any circumstance, it’s think back to what life was like before the rise of trans ideology. They need you to believe that, before we allowed men to compete against women in sports and before every company in the Fortune 500 started spending hundreds of millions of dollars hiring demented activists with blue hair, the old world was a bleak hellscape. Children were killing themselves en masse because their subjective sense of gender identity wasn’t being affirmed. In this dark age of transphobia, which ran from literally the dawn of time until yesterday, middle-aged men went insane with despair because they couldn’t cross dress in front of toddlers at the local library. Law firms and consultants simply couldn’t give good advice to their clients on account of the fact they didn’t have any crossdressers in leadership positions. Things were dire.

In order for any sane person to buy into this narrative, it’s vitally important that they not watch any footage from before the mass formation psychosis of trans ideology took hold in this country. So naturally, we’ll begin with some of that footage. Here, for example, is a report by NBC News from the year 2012. This was resurfaced this weekend by the popular account End Wokeness, and quickly went viral. You’ll see why:

That’s a mainstream news anchor explaining that, “It seems ridiculous to have a kid aged 13 or 14 deciding whether they want to have biological children.” She’s saying what most Americans would have agreed with at the time — and still do — which is that it’s crazy to administer cross-sex hormones, which sterilize patients for life, to young kids who are barely teenagers. They are permanently forfeiting their ability to procreate at an age when they cannot possibly understand the implications of such a decision. Just about a decade ago, it wasn’t blasphemy to point this out. It was, instead, the default position of milquetoast personalities on NBC News.

You’re not allowed to say those things anymore. And it’s easy to see why.

As Walsh put it, anyone saying those things today would be “driven out of town by a mob of pitchfork-wielding LGBT activists.” These are true believers in a cult, after all. As for doctors and other medical personnel, there’s a lot of money to be made.

Walsh gives other examples of news coverage from years ago that would never happen today. A tough lesson he draws from it is that “conservatives had a chance to shut down the child gender transition racket early on” but didn’t.

His point, however, is that it’s actually “pretty common” for activists to inadvertently “reveal truths that they wanted to keep hidden.” He has the receipts in the form of other videos. He then concludes:

Watching clips like these, it’s clear there’s a reason the media has been much more careful in recent years about putting so-called “trans kids” on camera. They only do it now for very short propaganda pieces. They don’t let the kids say too much. They’re careful not to show too much.

It’s the same reason they don’t want you talking about news reports from a decade ago. Trans activists desperately don’t want the truth to slip through the cracks. They know that, the more people are able to distance themselves from the relentless propaganda of the moment — the more people can get an unfettered look at the lifelong, debilitating consequences of trans ideology on children — the more transgenderism is exposed for the fraud that it is. The bad news is that, for the past several years, trans activists have largely succeeded in hiding the damage they’ve done. The good news is that, finally, the truth is coming out.
