Professor and author Camille Paglia recently gave an interview to a TV show in South America, during which she criticized the new fad-like obsession with transgenderism.
She calls ‘Transgender Mania’ a symptom of cultural collapse and also says that parents who indulge young children in this are committing child abuse.

Paglia: ‘Transgender Mania’ is a Symptom of West’s Cultural Collapse
“Nothing… better defines the decadence of the West to the jihadists than our toleration of open homosexuality and this transgender mania now,” Paglia said during an October 22 interview on the Brazilian television program Roda Viva.
Paglia also said during the interview that “transgender propagandists” are overstating their case.
“I think that the transgender propagandists make wildly inflated claims about the multiplicity of gender,” she said.
“Sex reassignment surgery, even today with all of its advances, cannot in fact change anyone’s sex, okay. You can define yourself as a trans man, or a trans woman, as one of these new gradations along the scale. But ultimately, every single cell in the human body, the DNA in that cell, remains coded for your biological birth.
“So there are a lot of lies being propagated at the present moment, which I think is not in anyone’s best interest.
“Now what I’m concerned about is the popularity and the availability of sex reassignment surgery, so that someone who doesn’t feel that he or she belongs to the biological birth, gender. People are being encouraged to intervene in the process.
“Parents are now encouraged to subject the child to procedures that I think are a form of child abuse. The hormones to slow puberty, actual surgical manipulations, etcetera. I think that this is wrong, that people should wait until they are of an informed age of consent.
“Parents should not be doing this to their children and I think that even in the teenage years is too soon to be making this leap.
