New Polls Show More Americans Are Not Buying Into the Transgender Agenda

As Pride Month is in full swing, there is nothing but rainbows as far as the eye can see. In general, Americans are tolerating accepting people. As long as you are not harming yourself or others or demanding that we do something or think a certain way, we are pretty much a "live and let live" bunch. It is the movement that insists that we accept something that we know not to be true, and woe unto anyone who disputes them that most Americans have a problem with. Two new polls show that the transgender movement and their demand for compliance from all Americans is becoming one of those problems.


In an election year survey, a recent Pew Research poll surveyed those who said they were supporters of former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden. The survey showed that more and more voters believe that one's gender is determined at birth and that it cannot be "chosen" at any time. Overall, 65 percent of those surveyed said gender is determined at birth, and 34 percent that gender can be changed later on. When broken down between Trump supporters and Biden supporters, 90 percent of Trump supporters said gender was assigned at birth, while just 39 percent of Biden supporters said gender was assigned at birth. When it came to changing one's gender at will, 59 percent of Biden voters said this was possible, and just nine percent of Trump voters said changing genders at will was possible.

Some of the poll results could be a problem for Joe Biden in an election year when Democrats are hemorrhaging minority voters. Of the black Biden voters surveyed, 64 percent said gender is determined at birth. The percentages decreased from there. Of Hispanic Biden voters polled, 46 percent agreed, with white Biden voters at 32 percent and Asian Biden voters at 27 percent. 

A few weeks ago in Oregon, a biological male who identifies as female was booed when he came in first in a state high school girls' track competition. The results of a NORC at University of Chicago poll show that when it comes to biological men who identify as women competing in women's sports, many Americans are about done with the unfairness of that as well. That survey showed that two-thirds of adults were opposed to biological males competing with biological women in women's sports. Those surveyed said that transgender athletes should "never" or "only in rare cases" be allowed to compete in women's sports. Overall, 69 percent of U.S. adults say that biological males who identify as women should not be allowed to compete in women's sports. 


In addition to polling results, the medical community may be catching up to the common sense of average Americans. The American College of Pediatrics on Thursday released a statement that calls for a stop to promoting "gender-affirming care" from minors suffering from gender dysphoria. On their website, a group called "Doctors Protecting Children" states in part:

"Sex is a dimorphic, innate trait defined in relation to an organism’s biological role in reproduction. In humans, primary sex determination occurs at fertilization and is directed by a complement of sex determining genes on the X and Y chromosomes.  This genetic signature is present in every nucleated somatic cell in the body and is not altered by drugs or surgical interventions."

The polls may give some in the transgender community an opportunity to try to frame opposition to transgenderism as also being anti-gay, but that is not what poll results show. Those surveyed did not have an issue with gay individuals. Respondents said they had no problem voting for gays, overall supported same-sex relationships, and said they would not have a problem if a child came out as gay. Even 54 percent said schools should not tell parents if their child came out as gay in school. 

Americans are willing to accept a lot of things. But they know the ABCs of X and Y chromosomes.
