Transgenderism escalated quickly. As it burst into the nation’s consciousness just more than half a decade ago, we were told the trans movement was about being kind to Bruce as he became Caitlyn. Now we are told that it is about supporting the sterilization and castration of children. Instead of a male former Olympian trying to live as a woman, we now have males competing as women in the Olympics.

The mutilation of children is not the only concerning part of the trans agenda, but it is the most extreme demand. We are instructed by the powers that be, from the Biden administration to Big Tech to corporate media, that “trans kids” know who they are and we must therefore support chemically and surgically remaking their bodies. Not to do so, we are warned, is to drive these children to suicide.

Yet this narrative struggles to answer many reasonable questions. Why has there been a surge of minors identifying as transgender — including many cases in which gender dysphoria appears to be sudden and socially induced, rather than innate and persistent? What about the people who regret “transitioning” and seek to “de-transition”? Are children capable of informed consent for genital mutilation?

These queries are at the heart of “Trans Mission: What’s the Rush to Reassign Gender?” This new documentary is available on YouTube (for now, at least) and was produced by Jennifer Lahl of the Center for Bioethics and Culture Network. The film’s creators understood the audience wants answers to these questions, and let their subjects answer them.

“Trans Mission” therefore opens with the stories of people who have “de-transitioned,” which are rarely acknowledged by corporate media. These regrets pose a significant problem for the transgender movement, which has opposed any barriers to transgender procedures, even for children. But many of the physical and psychological consequences of surgeries like castration and mastectomies are permanent.

The film features doctors and parents who share these concerns. The doctors’ concerns are clinical, noting the health risks of chemically delayed puberty, cross-sex hormones, and so-called “gender-affirming” surgeries. The parents are deeply concerned for their
