Fox News' Expert Claims Transgender People Don't Exist
Dr. Keith Ablow, one of Fox News' most Fox Newsy-type regular commentators, has erased the transgender community from the historic record completely in a new piece for the network.
In response to California's law protecting trans students, Ablow writes:
...I believe that children have enough to deal with as they struggle to feel comfortable with their bodies, with the notion of privacy and with later changes involving puberty without urging them to grapple with the notion that their souls may have been born into the wrong bodies.
What’s more, I don’t believe we have definitive data (although many psychiatrists with very impressive credentials, who seem to mean well, assert that we do) that any male or female soul has ever in the history of the world been born into the wrong anatomic gender.
Let me put that more clearly: I am not convinced by any science I can find that people with definitively male DNA and definitively male anatomy can actually be locked in a cruel joke of nature because they are actually female.
And we are not convinced by any science that this man is a doctor.
