Camille Paglia, a liberal academic and bestselling author, says that transgender surgery or sex-reassignment surgery is a “wildly inflated claim” that is spreading false ideas of what a person’s sex is and has the possibility of hurting children.
“‘I think that the transgender propagandists make wildly inflated claims about the multiplicity of gender,’ said Paglia during an interview on Roda Viva Internacional.”
The idea that a sex-reassignment surgery can change someone’s sex is a lie says Paglia, and people who encourage this idea to children are enacting in a form of “child abuse” says Paglia.
“‘You can define yourself as a trans man or a trans woman or one of these new gradations along the scale, but ultimately every single cell in the human body, the DNA in that cell remains coded for your biological birth,’ Says Paglia.”
Paglia believes that these lies being repeated about transgenderism is being infiltrated into young people’s lives and she believes that children need to grow and know themselves better before they make a life-changing decision about their gender.
“I think this is wrong, that people should wait until an informed age of consent,” said Paglia, author of the best seller Sexual Personae, “Parents should not be doing this to their children.”
Paglia is the author of seven books and is a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
