A leading expert on the transgender issue in Massachusetts claims LGBT proponents will continue to win unless the truth about them becomes the primary issue.
Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly rejected a ballot issue Tuesday that would have overturned the state's transgender law allowing them into the opposite-gender restrooms and showers. MassResistance director Brian Camenker tells OneNewsNow the transgender movement outspent them 10 to 1.
"They raised nearly $5 million and they had at least one ad agency doing commercials for them for free, just donating everything," he describes. "And they had this enormous list of corporations and sports teams and government agencies and politicians" all supporting their contention that letting transgender men into women's private facilities is a civil rights issue.
Conservatives never challenged that argument, says Camenker, who contends the real issue is it's a mental illness – "gender dysphoria," as designated by mental health experts.
"And our approach [during the campaign] was basically kept out of the public forum as much as possible," he continues. "All of the conservative websites and everything else were basically kowtowing to the establishment and they would not really allow our approach to be heard."
The pro-family spokesman contends that as long as the LGBT crowd is allowed to push the matter as a human rights issue, they will continue to succeed – and the fact that it's a mental health problem will be hushed into silence.
