Ryan Anderson: The Language of Transgenderism

Townhall Review l Commentaries

Mar 14 2023 • 1 min


Transgender activists are wielding a powerful weapon in the battle over sex and identity: the English language.

They seem to think that by changing the language, they can change reality.

The consequences are not just a matter of semantics. Their linguistic maneuvers are doing terrible harm.

The first casualty is truth. The fact of our biological sex—whether we are a man or a woman—literally goes down to our bones, to our DNA.

Also destroyed are the very people that transitioning supposedly helps. A Swedish study found that people who underwent sex-reassignment surgery had a suicide rate 19 times higher than their peers.

We can show compassion without slaying truth, and without damaging vulnerable individuals and society at large.

Language matters, but reality matters more.
