Trans Movement Unnecessary: The Road Not Taken

Eliza Mondegreen argues that the current conflict over trans rights was not inevitable but rather a result of the radical approach taken by the trans movement. She suggests that a more empathetic and understanding approach could have been more effective in winning people’s empathy.

She criticizes the trans movement for focusing on erasing sex in law and society, putting men in women’s prisons and boys in girls’ sports, and running unregulated medical experiments on gender-nonconforming children. These radical demands have led to an absurd and dystopian reality, and have put the trans movement on a collision course….

Reasonable accommodations for confused people could have been made. And still could be made. There is a strong constituency out there who are overwhelmingly sympathetic to the “reasonable accommodations” route, but empathy doesn’t mean submission or writing blank checks to the activist script.

Sometimes empathy sounds like “If I were a kid today, I would have transitioned, too. I’m glad I didn’t.” Or: “I understand why you want that but the answer is still no.”
