Transgenderism has become a very controversial cultural and political issue – amid it having consequential impacts on children, women and free speech.
Trans activists believe that children at any age should be able to transition, and this life-altering decision can be done behind the backs of parents. The activists believe that self-identification trumps biology, and hence biological males who identify as women should compete in women’s sports, and access women’s change rooms, bathrooms, shelters and prisons. They also believe that preferred pronoun use should be mandated by law and that those who object to their trans agenda are hateful and ought to be shut down.
However, not all transgender people are on board with the gender ideology and queer theory pushed by woke trans activists. True North’s Elie Cantin-Nantel spoke about the matter with Julia Malott – a transgender commentator from Ontario who has been critical of modern day trans activism.
