We're experimenting with a new style for these videos. We put in a significant effort in writing, design, production, and editing. We're hoping to produce one of these each month.

What are you thoughts?

Keep on exposing this nonsense Chris. Slowly but surely apolitical folks are seeing the consequences of supporting this ideology.

This is a very thought-provoking video. Most concerning are the misunderstandings and misuse of biology in the service of a very harmful ideology. As a biological psychologist, I still cannot get my mind wrapped around the degree to which people have become so committed to the wide-spread use of these irreversible medical interventions on the young and the vulnerable. Thank you for this interesting piece. Sincerely, Frederick

Well done Chris. So many people want to be "kind" and "allies" without knowing the roots of the ideology, nor its ultimate goals. Thank you for all you do to expose transanity!

Judith Butler and Susan Stryker should go down with Trofim Lysenko as the most harmful charlatans in history.

I’m glad more people are speaking out against this radical cult. My daughter is so sucked into it that not even anything will pull her out. I tried reason. I’ve tried telling about these wicked people pushing it in society. I’ve tried and tried, she has deaf ears for anything that goes against this trans ideology. We must stop the madness. I won’t give up.

Excellent video. For the sake of clarity, please use "he" and "she" as historically used in the English language. Stryker is a male, therefor a "he." I find myself spending time looking up a person's history when my eyeballs and brain are receiving signals that conflict with what I am hearing.

Everyone needs to see this. I am a retired mental health professional and am deeply concerned by all aspects of this movement. For starters when did the therapeutic pathway for a person at risk of suicide include giving them exactly what they say they want?

Suicidal risk has been weaponised and it draws more power from other people’s ill informed compassion.

When I separate the Trans narrative from the methods used by the transgender activists; that is savagely suppressing any critical voice, cruelly dividing families, indoctrinating children and adolescents leaving many with damaged sterile bodies. And as you describe in Detroit capturing the vulnerable and more widely capturing adolescents who are trying to negotiate so many aspects of life, growing understandings and changing relationships alongside their bodily changes only exacerbates their confusions and despair.

The attack on family is distressingly aggressive. In the UK parents are not informed of their child’s transition within school nor are they permitted to see the teaching materials that cover the gender teaching. And if parents don’t support their child’s transition they may be referred to child protection services.

The justification for claiming this Trans pathway is valid is that biological sex is socially constructed. While what they are creating, is, without doubt, social construction on full power. Who would behave in this way? Critical Theory claims that power relationships are the sole vertex in society. The Trans movement are using and growing their power at speed.

Thank you for your work Christopher.

This entire movement messed me up throughout my teenage years. For five years, I was convinced I could transition to the opposite sex and longed for a life as a man. Meanwhile, my very sanity and health deteriorated, leading me to become prone to depressive moods, paranoia, delusions, mild hallucinations, and obsessive intrusive thoughts. I never took any real drugs or hormones--the only ones I did take were some crappy over-the-counter testosterone boosters men use for working out, but I only took them once or twice (spoiler alert, they did absolutely nothing).

For the past 18 months, it's been a slow climb back from the abyss that swallowed me whole and threatened to ruin me further. It's authors like you, Chris, that have helped me and tons of other desistors and detransitioners heal. Thank you for ripping off my blinders and showing me the truth.

Brilliant synthesis as always. I'd never heard of the Ellis center in Highland Park. Exposing this evil should open a lot of people's eyes.

As Michael Knowles said, was attacked for saying, transgenderism must be eradicated. For some it is a cult, for others it is a cash cow. Evil regardless. Thanks for more excellent work Mr. Rufo!

The best and ,most valuable, contribution that Chris makes to this issue and the DEI issue is that he does not simply give his opinion. Any one persons opinion is as good or bad as another. He does the investigative reporting. And so long as he is reporting and not just opining I am listening.

Christopher consistently produces extremely well researched and high quality information regarding this movement. I for one am much better prepared to defend my position because of his effort and the education I have received from them. Kudos and much appreciation and respect!!
