“Woke” politics is spreading dangerously far and wide.
More and more celebrities are attempting to use their platform to cram radical Left policies down Americans’ throats.
And now one former NBA superstar is promoting this delusional and dangerous LGBT agenda.
Former Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
On it, Wade announced that he and his wife, actress Gabrille Union, are now raising their 12-year-old boy as a transgender girl.
Wade said, “Me and my wife, my wife Gabrielle Union . . . we are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community, and we’re proud allies as well.
The Left’s overwhelming encouragement of transgenderism in underage children is unsettling and dangerous.
Ignoring biological realities is not healthy for anyone, particularly prepubescent children.
Also, the social science on the issue is scant at best, and demonstrably harmful at worst.
People experiencing gender dysphoria have a significantly higher rate of suicidality – roughly 40% – so steering people head-on into transgenderism is incredibly risky.
Leftists will argue that the high suicide rate is due to social bullying.
But even transgender people who’ve gained acceptance in their families and communities still have the thoughts, and many who have gone through sex reassignment surgery have deep regrets.
Studies show the desistance rate for children with gender dysphoria is 85%, meaning 85 out of 100 kids eventually grow out of it.
But instead of dealing with kids’ gender dysphoria, radical leftists are re-enforcing it and encouraging kids to make life-altering decisions at a young age.
This is very likely going to have a disastrous effect on a generation of children who have been fodder for this radical social experiment.
Celebrities like Wade treat this like a parenting fad.
Raising children as “gender neutral” and allowing the kids to choose their own gender is the nonsense that’s propagating among progressives.
And anyone who opposes or simply asks questions about this radical agenda is immediately shouted down.
Even unabashed leftists like Harry Potter novelist J.K. Rowling are unsafe from the outrage mob for pushing against transgender orthodoxy.
And the Left wants to take it even further.
Some parents have actually been reported to child services for not affirming their child’s “gender expression.”
This is an incredibly dangerous idea that needs to be quashed.
Let adults decide how they want to express themselves and live their lives. But children must be off limits.
Will more celebrities begin to speak out and counter the agenda pushed by Wade and the “woke” brigade?
