During a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers and podcast host Joe Rogan spread falsehoods and half-truths about transgender adolescents. They asserted that doctors and “woke” liberals are encouraging children to transition in order to receive financial gain.The statement was made by Rodgers, who stated, “I don’t see why they are so hell-bent on going after the kids.” He went on to say, “There’s huge money in it.”Rogan makes the following statement: “I believe it’s money, and it’s also waving the flag of woke.”

Rogan argued that interviewers are employing trick questions to make it appear as though there is broad support for young people to transition genders. He and Rodgers claimed that the minds of young people are not adequately matured for them to make decisions that could have a significant impact on their lives.”You might as well be a Scientologist, you might as well be a Moonie, it’s the same thing, it’s the same sort of religious-like thinking that exists in all sorts of groups of people that we call cults,” Rogan remarked in reference to individuals who advocate for gender-affirming operations for young people. According to him, however, no one considers “leftists” to be a cult.

In addition, Rogan made the assumption that transition remorse is widespread, which is not the case. “Even the f—— New York Times published a significant article about people who had detransitioned. … As a result, their lives have been damaged, their bodies have been ruined, they are unable to have children anymore, they have lost their breasts and their penis, and it is insanityContrary to popular belief, research has shown that transition regret is an incredibly uncommon occurrence. When discussing young people, there are certain parts of transition that are not relevant. For example, genital surgery is not recommended by medical professionals for those who are under the age of nineteen. Furthermore, because some therapies that have an effect on fertility can be reversed, transgender persons are able to and do bear children.Regarding the Times article, which is an opinion column written by Pamela Paul, a conservative writer, it has received a great deal of criticism.Regarding the Times article, which is an opinion column written by Pamela Paul, a conservative writer, it has received a great deal of criticism.

An article that was contributed to the Advocate by Erin Reed states that it is “filled with factual errors and unfounded assumptions about transgender care and the lived experiences of transgender people.” Furthermore, the interviews function as vehicles through which Paul bundles falsehoods and disinformation with erroneous citations and assertions that are not supported by the data that she gives, despite the fact that the article is portrayed as a piece on detransitioners.Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz, an epidemiologist, wrote an article for Slate in which he mentioned the numerous studies that have demonstrated the rarity of transition regret. He also mentioned that not everyone who becomes dissatisfied with some element of their transition or stops receiving therapy is considered a detransitioner.

“Ultimately, the question of what proportion of children or adults regret their transition is only important to a select group: the people who want to transition, and their clinicians,” Meyerowitz-Katz wrote. “This is because the question is only relevant to a select group.” “At worst, the rate of regret is still better than other treatments that don’t require national debates over their use,” the author writes. This raises the question of why anyone who isn’t intimately associated with the treatment of transgender persons is even taking the time to weigh in on the topic at all.Additionally, Rogan and Rodgers devoted part of their time to arguing that individuals who identify as asexual should not be included in the LGBTQ+ community and pondering the meaning of the term “two-spirit.”

Furthermore, they asserted that trans-inclusive laws and policies regarding the use of restrooms and locker rooms are facilitating child molestation, which is not true. Furthermore, they asserted that pedophiles, also known as “minor-attracted people,” will one day be considered a marginalized group that is deserving of protection from discrimination. This is a trope that has been used for years to argue against LGBTQ+ equality, and no, it has not occurred. Additionally, they proposed the idea that Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, are sneering at the United States of America because of its support of transgender individuals.
