Vox Says Mainstream Media Is ‘Anti-Trans’

Even in the aftermath of a transgender shooter murdering six innocents at a Nashville Christian school, the leftist media is beset with tales of the trans community being targeted by extremists. One outlet, Vox, claimed that the mainstream media has been overtaken by the “anti-trans movement.”

The media virtually ran cover for 28-year-old shooter Audrey Hale, with the Daily Mirror noting her “whimsical artwork.”

CBS News reported they were hard at work a day later confirming her gender identity, and others dropped pronoun usage altogether in their reporting.

But it is Vox that takes the award for the most outlandish claim by the so-called fourth branch of government.

Reporter Aja Romano breathlessly decried the “insidious myths” that a “scary agenda” exists where trans kids are “transitioning” more every day. He denied that doctors are promoting this so-called “gender-affirming care” and that activists are more aggressive than ever.

In fact, the “mostly peaceful” transgender movement is merely trying to assist confused young ones.

Romano further asserted that the medical community closed the book on any debate over the value of gender reassignment procedures, puberty blockers, and other insidious “treatment.” Their “consensus” was labeled “well-established,” which should shut down all arguments on the issue.

The fact is, Vox and other far left media sources are still angry that the New York Times had a moment of clarity and presented both sides of the issue. In a January piece titled, “When Students Change Gender Identity, and Parents Don’t Know,” the paper made an effort to hear from “both sides.”

This was enough to send the “mostly peaceful” transgender movement into a raging fit.

Notorious “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib whined that the Times gave a “platform for transphobic hate and propaganda, with horrifying consequences.”

What consequences? That the views of concerned parents who had been kept out of the loop while their minor children made life-changing decisions were heard?

GLAAD released a statement denouncing the Times piece as “misguided, inaccurate, and disingenuous ‘both sides’ fearmongering and bad faith ‘just asking questions’ coverage.” Again, the “newspaper of record” had the gall to show both sides and ask questions.

Because of this egregious act by a journalistic outfit and the mere mention that the Nashville shooter was transgender, that was enough to signal the defeat of the mainstream media by transgender forces. Vox knows better, but why let facts get in the way of a clickbait story?
