Opinion – I’m not sure I agree with either side of this heated debate. I don’t pretend to know the answer. What strikes me here is the use of the word “experts” to try to legitimize a given position.

On the other hand, I don’t think the use of the term “degenerate” by some of those opposed to trans rights is helpful. If one disagrees with trans rights one would probably do better to use words like “misguided” or “mistaken.” After all, each side sincerely believes they are right. So each should be treated with respect, even if we fall on one side of the debate and disagree with the other.
