I have to give a slow clap to Debra J. Saunders, for writing a masterpiece of propaganda. She manages to skirt just on the edge of outright hate and disgust towards us, while taking the “just askin’ questions” tack, as well as the “can this be good for the children?” trope.
I have no idea who she is. Remember, I write for a newspaper too, and I know that often times someone who shouldn’t be writing anything more controversial than recipe cards is given a page to fill with, well, whatever. Debra is either a truly concerned person who can’t even be bothered to hit Wikipedia for research, let alone talk to an actual transgender case worker, researcher, or (gasp!) person – or she’s crafted a very well-done anti-trans political piece.
