Ames BLM black transgenderSince a study out of the UK shows the negative impact transgender ideology has had on British society, a former advertising executive who became a Christian after years of being "part of the problem" says it's safe to assume the same can be said of the ideology's impact on American society.

In her report, "The Corrosive Impact of Transgender Ideology," Dr. Joanna Williams of the think tank Civitas concludes that "trans" ideology corrodes sex-based rights and undermines child protection.

Linda Harvey of Mission America agrees and adds that many transgender individuals also use the threat of suicide to get their way.

"This defies traditional counseling ethics," continues Harvey. "Don't let the threat of suicide cause you to affirm something that you know is harmful or is questionable in any way."

She says the evidence is out there, and society needs more studies like this to counter leftist autocrats who are coalescing behind a tiny transgender community for political reasons.

"Responsible government agencies and universities and private foundations could sponsor studies like this, because people are desperate for answers as to why society seems to be crumbling all around us," Harvey submits.

Among other things, Dr. Williams' study finds that the number of 13-year-olds referred for help rose by 30 percent last year and by 28 percent for 11-year-olds. In arguing for a ban on giving the drugs to adolescents, she points out that "as a society, we forbid people below the age of 18 from purchasing cigarettes or alcohol, yet we deem them capable of consenting to body-altering drugs."

The expansion of transgender rights has also reportedly gone hand-in-hand with an expansion of state and institutional (both public and private) regulation of speech and behavior. "This highlights a significant difference between today's transgender activists and the gay rights movement of a previous era," Dr. Williams writes. As opposed to the homosexual rights movement, which she believes sought freedom from the state, the transgender movement "calls for recognition and protection from the state in the form of intervention to regulate the behaviour of that outside of the identity group."
