I did not see anything erroneous, or even transphobic, in Dawkins' remarks, so I watched the video.
He cites six sources for the scientific consensus, but none are scientific studies or statements. They are all opinions by folks who make money treating gender dysphoria. So of course they favor insurance companies paying for treatments of related illnesses.
These people are triggered by these facts:
Sex is biological, innate, binary, and immutable.His sources do not really refute any of these things. He mainly argues that there is a consensus among the organizations that those treating the transgendered are in favor of transgender rights. I do not doubt that.
Homosexuality and gender nonconformity have long been considered mental illnesses.
Transgenderism is just a linguistic fantasy.
Pandering to crazy delusions usually makes the condition worse.
For example, his first reference is from the American Medical Assn, and is titled "Advocating for the LGBTQ community". It opposes the use of therapy to change sexual orientation or gender identity. It pointedly does not say whether such therapies work.
Then it says it wants insurance companies to pay, and that transgender individuals should be able to use opposite sex restrooms. Okay, that is just an opinion.
The transgender advocates have become the world's most unreasonable people. And they have taken over the Biden administration and the courts and the medical associations, so they have the power to punish us all. For example, the courts:
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A federal appeals court has upheld a lower court ruling that transgender students in Indiana must have access to the bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identities.The opinion is filled will silly arguments, such as a school girl being irreparably harmed by not using the boys rest room, and that the definition of sex has changed. It interprets a law saying that schools can separate sexes for bathrooms, and then says they cannot. It is all so stupid that I do not believe that the judges believe it. The judges are ideologically committed to forcing a transgender agenda on us all.
