‘Someone needs to say it’: Maher accuses trans movement of ‘literally experimenting on children’

Joining the argument that conservatives have presented all along, comedian Bill Maher with the same scientific backing that the “trendy” trans movement is “literally experimenting on children.”

During Friday’s episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher” the HBO host took an at-length look at many of the knowns and unknowns surrounding the trans movement that, he expressed, has come to prominence more out of a youthful rebelliousness than any serious conviction. As such, the fact that adults are validating kids going through a phase should be a concern to everyone.

“The answer can’t always be that anyone from a marginalized community is automatically right; trump card, mic drop, end of discussion. Because we’re literally experimenting on children,” Maher contended.

Warning: Adult Language

“Someone needs to say it – not everything’s about you. And it’s okay to ask questions about something that’s very new and involves children,” he noted since the ACLU had declared the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade was being said to have more of a negative impact on LGBTQ people than women.

Maher pointed out the negative impact that puberty blockers have on the development of children and how gender-affirming surgeries are serious procedures being pushed on an age demographic that goes through all kinds of phases.

“If kids knew what they wanted to be at age eight,” he said, “the world would be filled with cowboys and princesses. I wanted to be a pirate. Thank God nobody took me seriously and scheduled me for eye removal and peg leg surgery.”

“Never forget children are impressionable and very, very stupid…Maybe the boy who thinks he’s a girl is just gay or whatever ‘Frasier’ was,” the comedian quipped. “Maybe childhood makes you sad sometimes and there are other solutions besides hand me the d*ck saw.”

By his analysis, the trend lines have much more to do with the ideology being pushed on the younger generation than any natural progression. At the current rate, everyone would be a member of the LGBTQ community by 2054.

“All the babies are in the wrong bodies? Was there a mixup at the plant, like with Cap’n Crunch’s Oops! All Berries?” he offered. “It wasn’t that long ago that when adults asked a kid, ‘What do you wanna be when you grow up?’ they meant what profession.”

“If this spike in trans children is all natural, why is it regional? Either Ohio is shaming them or California is creating them,” he later added.

The trendiness, Maher explained, was even impacting the LGBTQ community itself as it has grown more radical, “That’s where we are now – gay men aren’t hip enough for the Gay Pride parade. Compared to trans, gay is practically cis, and cis is practically Mormon.”

The host further emphasized the initiative of kids to push back against the prior generation and that it was up to the adults in the room to identify the trends that cause real harm.

“It’s trendy. Penis equals man, okay boomer. Remember, the prime directive of every teen is anything to shock and challenge the squares who brought you up. And if you haven’t noticed that, with kids, doing something for the ‘likes’ is more important than their own genitals, then you haven’t been paying attention.”

He concluded that real discussions have to be had about these issues that recognize the risks to children and, if trendiness is ignored then the conversation is not serious, “it’s a blow being struck in the culture wars using children as cannon fodder.”

Ultimately, Maher recognized, “Weighing tradeoffs is not bigotry.”
