Religious Right Radio Segment Blames Social Media for Children Coming Out as Transgender

A segment on a Religious Right radio show yesterday blamed social media policies designed to protect transgender people from online harassment and the fact that communities of transgender people exist on the internet for the fact that some children come out as transgender.

Tim Graham, executive editor of Media Research Center’s NewsBusters site, and Cathy Ruse, Senior Fellow of Legal Studies at Family Research Council, joined American Family Association Governmental Affairs Director Sandy Rios on her weekday morning show on American Family Radio yesterday. Family Research Council and American Family Association are both considered anti-LGBT hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

During their joint-interview, Rios brought up Jazz Jennings, a transgender girl and the focus of the TLC show “I Am Jazz.” Rios cited the TLC program as part of the “huge role in influencing our children” that media has played regarding LGBT issues in America.

“The number one influence on their daughters was social media. She talks about this being a social contagion. … There are websites apparently teaching kids how to get these hormones without their parents knowing,” Ruse said.

Ruse went on to compare coming out as transgender to developing anorexia.

“This is going to take lives as well. And I think until we start seeing lawsuits nothing is going to stop this,” Ruse said.

2. They aren't entirely wrong

The support and information available online helps our transgender people overcome isolation and repression.

4. Can we now blame the Religious Right for all of the pedophilia in the world. The Religious Right

apparently trains pedophiles. And all of their churches support it given the thousands effected.
