Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Dr. Debra Soh (Author, The End of Gender) about the dangers of getting involved in scientific research involving transgender kids who decide to transition, the potential irreversible damage that could be done by medical interventions on a growing number of non binary millennials and the growing number of people who experience transgender regret and decide to detransition. Debra discusses her background in sexual neuroscience and how her research led her to the conclusion that the topic of transgender kids, gender dysphoria and whether or not they should transition at an early age had become a forbidden topic. Her research conflicts with belief that kids suffering from gender dysphoria should receive gender affirming transgender surgery. Instead she suggests that when left alone most are simply gay kids that will grow more comfortable with their identity later in life. Debra talks about the growing number of millennials who classify themselves as non binary or gender fluid. What concerns her is that a significant number are electing to do medical interventions that have the possibility of irreversible damage like double mastectomies or taking testosterone. She also debunks the myth that gender is not a binary. She gives her recommendations for parenting gay kids or children that are struggling with their gender identity. Debra also cautions against the recommendations from mental health professionals that are putting trans activist ideology ahead of scientific research about the potential hazards of gender affirming transgender surgery. Debra clarifies why she called her book “The End of Gender: Debunking the Myths about Sex and Identity in Our Society”. Debra expresses her shock at the level of support that children transitioning has received from the gay community. If the science is correct, a large number of transgender kids, if left alone would simply grow up to be gay adults. Instead many gay kids are being led to believe that they have gender dysphoria and making permanent medical decisions based on that diagnosis. She is seeing a rise of “transgender regret” in the growing numbers of people that are deciding to detransition. She also addresses the research of Lisa Littman on the growing number of young girls that have rapid onset gender dysphoria and what might be causing it.
