    Hopefully, everyone will either protest peacefully or just ignore this speaker. Interesting timing having this event on National Coming Out Day.

    1. So our society is best served by encouraging everyone to only listen to those with whom we agree?

        agree or disagree?

        ” Shrier did not interview most of the transgender adolescents she wrote about.

        Shrier’s book tells the stories of several young people who came out as transgender to their parents. The book claims that these adolescents and young adults were not actually transgender, but actually just confused. The problem is Shrier didn’t actually interview any of these people she wrote about.

        The author’s note points out that she only interviewed their parents, who uniformly did not accept their children’s transgender identities. Many of them were estranged from their kids because the children were so hurt by their parents’ rejection. To actually understand the psychology of these young people, one would need to talk to them, not simply rely on stories from parents with whom they do not speak.”

        1. That article you cut and pasted from was written by someone with a vested interest, and in my view misrepresents the facts.

          I know someone personally who has been ill served by the medical community’s harmful and scientifically unfounded bias toward gender affirming care.

          Some people may be happiest after transitioning, but there are also many who are being harmed for life. It’s a real problem that needs to be acknowledged and confronted.

          You are welcome to deny all you want, but that doesn’t change the facts. Lives are being irreparably harmed.

          “Do no harm” must be restored to medical practice.

      How many days do we give these snowflakes?

  2. The livestream is very much appreciated, as I am unable to attend in person.

    I hope her speech will be viewed by anyone and everyone interested in this topic, and any efforts to disrupt the presentation will be stopped.

    If trans activists oppose her views, they should counter them in a respectful way. If an informative response is livestreamed, I will be interested in seeing that as well.

    1. The livestream of the presenters started out with poor audio and I was about to quit when they finally fixed it.

      Abigail Shrier was terrific. She was also very gracious to detractors from UVA who asked questions.

      My favorite question was about why she speaks at forums that are supportive of her book and views, rather than being questioned by someone who has a different view who could and would challenge her. Her answer was very enlightening. She said she would welcome invitations from those who disagree. The problem is, they not only don’t invite her to speak, they try to prevent her from speaking anywhere.

      The left doesn’t want an open discussion. They want only their views to be heard. That’s not how a free society operates.

    If I want to listen/watch misinformation from an internet self-taught non-medical expert then her interviews with Rogan and Tuckums are available.

    1. Whatever you disagree with is misinformation?

      The general public has no right to discuss these matters, especially as they pertain to public policy?

      Medical experts agree that children’s minds are not fully developed. But, even knowing that, some of the so-called experts are willing to perform irreversible procedures on children because the child said that was what they wanted.

      Once again, you want to “trust the science”. Only the science isn’t settled.

        The flip side is that people like Shapiro and Shrier seem to believe that being trans is something that one can catch from being around other people. Of course, this used to be believed about homosexuals.

            Actor George Takei, who turned 85 last week, tweeted the perfect response over the weekend. He reminded people about how gay kids are usually brought up in a wholly heterosexual environment and it does nothing to change their sexuality. “They ‘groomed’ me to be heterosexual, you know. It didn’t change a thing.

          You mean it’s safe to drink after a G? I’m not worried about Ls. From everything I’ve read, I’m one of those already.

          Sheesh humorless.

          Now Asexual is contagious. You get it from your spouse.

    I cant go, but after hearing some attacks on her, and reading about how there was concerted efforts to cancel the book (read about it, these efforts were not to remove them from school libraries, but to remove the book in its entirety), I plan to watch the livestream and draw conclusions for myself.

    Thanks for the link.

  5. I posted this as sponsored content to distinguish it from editorial content. It is essentially an ad. The option to post paid sponsored content is available to anyone — as long as it is clearly labeled as such. My reasoning was that simple.

      Yeah, it’s in big bold letters. Man must have bread.

      But I like it! Wish I could comment on more ads. Take Nutrafol for example…

    What does “sponsored content” imply? Who is sponsoring?

      Means that someone specifically paid to have this article published here. Not sure who… would be interesting to know… I assume the Jefferson Council but transparency in the media and all that…

        Yeah, but it’s good for James and keeps us entertained. And, in this particular case he didn’t have to include the “views and opinions” disclaimer.

        Funded media & TJI — as long as the IRS hasn’t a complaint, why should we?

    Speaking of censorship, Spotsey bans books, including books on slavery.
