The majority of Americans overwhelmingly reject the Left’s radical transgender ideology, a recent poll has revealed.
The poll was conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation and sought to find out if the public believes the far-left theory that a person can “change” their gender.
According to the poll, most Americans reject the idea that gender can be different from sex at birth.
The poll found that 57 percent of U.S. adults believe that gender was determined by sex at birth.
Meanwhile, 43 percent believed that gender could differ from one’s sex at birth.
Respondents also opposed other talking points promoted by transgender activists.
Sex-change surgeries and other transgender treatments for minors, participation in sports based on “gender identity,” and teaching gender identity to young children were all frowned upon by respondents.
Alyssa Wells, a 29-year-old behavior therapist and survey participant, also issued a warning about transgenderism
“My concern with transgender is mostly with the children,” Wells said.
“We can’t vote until we’re a certain age, we can’t smoke, drink or whatever, but we can change our bodies’ anatomy and how it works?
“It just doesn’t seem like that’s okay to me.”
However, most respondents supported legislation to ban discrimination against transgenders.
Support for protecting transgender rights in areas such as housing, medicine, health insurance, work, education, and others, ranges from 65% to 71%.
Participants also widely supported counseling for minors who believe they may be transgender.
However, they opposed minors receiving hormonal treatments under medical supervision.
The survey found that 68% of adults opposed puberty blockers for children aged 10-14 and 58% opposed hormones for children aged 15-17.
62% and 66%, respectively, supported counseling for those age groups.
Most respondents also opposed teachers discussing gender identity in the classroom.
77 percent oppose it from kindergarten to third grade, 70% for fourth and fifth grade, and 52% for middle school.
Only 36 percent opposed such lessons for high schoolers with 64% supported the lessons.
The vast majority of respondents, between 62% and 66%, believed that males who identify as transgender should not be allowed to compete in women’s sports at youth, high school, college, and professional levels.
Many respondents compared transgender athletes to those who use steroids, citing the advantages they have over biological women.
Overall, the poll indicates that while many Americans support legislation to protect transgender people from discrimination, they oppose teaching gender identity to young children and allowing transgender athletes to compete in women’s sports.
