Fox News and ‘What is a Woman’

When you thought the transgender lunacy could not afflict any more institutions than it already has, a new low is reached. 

Fox News, the channel of choice for the majority of conservative America,  promoted the story of a transgender child who switched genders at five years old as part of the network’s “LGBTQ+ Pride Month” special on Friday.

On an episode of America’s Newsroom, Fox News reporter Bryan Llenas highlighted the story of Ryland Whittington, a young girl from California whose family facilitated her transgender transition to male when she was just five years old.

The transgender debate remains far more nuanced than many conservatives are willing to admit. However, what the majority of people agree upon is that pre-pubescent children should always be off-limits. For the news division of a network whose most popular anchors include Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity to be promoting such ideas is both shocking and disappointing to say the least. 

On the plus side, The Daily Wire’s resident “theocratic fascist” Matt Walsh released his new documentary What Is A Woman to much fanfare and debate across social media. The documentary, a critique of modern gender ideology, was the week’s most popular film for audiences watching from home. Meanwhile, not one mainstream publication has bothered to review it. There is still hope for America!
