Dr. Phil McGraw criticized authorities for pushing transgender treatments on children, which he believes causes long-term harm.

He noted that major medical organizations endorsed these treatments with little evidence of their safety.

McGraw argued teachers are not qualified to address transgender issues given their lack of psychological/medical training, and that undermining the child-parent relationship promotes deception.

McGraw said, “It’s interesting, [officials] choose words like ‘gender affirming care.’”

“But really what they’re talking about is hormonal therapy or sex reassignment surgery on children. And, in fairness, the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Endocrine Society, or whatever the exact name of that is, all of the major medical associations have signed off on this. They signed off on it. And I have never seen those organizations sign off on anything with less information as to whether or not it does long term harm of anything in my life. And when I asked about that, when I bring that up, then they immediately label you as transphobic,” he continued.

“[Officials’] reason for doing it is it stops this drive for suicide, that there’s a suicide epidemic,” explained McGraw.

He added, “It doesn’t fix that, it doesn’t fix all the comorbid issues that come along with feeling like they’re in the wrong body. But yet they’re pushing this. And it’s, we’re going to do some shows that are already taped, that are revealing what the real results of this are. And I think people are going to be shocked that these medical organizations have signed off on this. I think they’ve just given in to the pressure.”

McGraw said, “First off, if this is either a psychological phenomenon, or a medical phenomenon, and the teachers are not trained in either psychology or medicine, they’re not any more trained to deal with that than they are to take out the kid’s spleen in the home room.”

“So if that’s true, if it’s a psychological thing, if it’s gender dysphoria, or it’s a medical issue, then you need someone trained in child psychology, psychiatry, or medicine. And the teacher is not trained in any of those three things. Like I say, they’re not any more trained in that than they are to take out the child’s spleen. So how are they qualified to deal with that?” he asked.

“Secondly, it’s teaching the child to keep a secret from their parents, it’s teaching deception, and interfering between the child’s relationship with their parent,” he continued.

“Now, their justification for that is well, if the child goes home and announces this, or if we tell it to the parent, then the child could get abused, the child could get judged, the child could get kicked to the curb. But they have to admit, statistically, that that is very rare. And if that’s the case, that’s what we have the Department of Child and Family Services for, that’s what we have child protective services for. If that’s the case, then you call in for some intervention if the child is being abused at home, for whatever reason, then you get intervention in that way. But you don’t come between the child and their parent. The parent has the right to know what’s going on,” insisted McGraw.

Rogan agreed children are easily manipulated and convinced of ideas, especially with reinforcement.

Rogan said, “You can talk them into believing in Santa Claus. You talk kids into believing in all kinds of ridiculous [expletive] because they’re really young. You can easily convince them in one way or another that they’re anything, that they’re queer, that they’re trans, you could 100% convinced some kids have of all kinds of things, especially by reinforcing it with love and support and happiness, you can convince people of a lot of things.”

Mcgraw replied, “I think, this is what I’m talking about when I say the activists, I don’t think speak for the community at large.”

“I think they get an agenda that they’re pushing, and I think they really get wrapped up in this and it gets a lot of oxygen on the internet. It gets a lot of oxygen on social media platforms. Now they say there’s no social contagion here, but the girls that are claiming to be transgender, that percentage has gone up 800%, 1,000% over the last several years,” he explained.

“And they say, ‘Well, that’s because they feel more comfortable talking about it now.’ Is that true? Or is it because you read about it, you see it on social media, and you think, ‘Well, I can distinguish myself in this way?’”

Both expressed transgender procedures are inappropriate for children and not always reversible as claimed.

McGraw believes social media acts as a “social contagion” influencing more young people, especially girls, to identify as transgender in recent years.

He argued the number of “detransitioners” regretting medical transition is likely higher than reported.

McGraw concluded, “I think there is a social contagion effect. So people jump on the bandwagon. And if it’s for a short period of time, but they’ve done things that can’t be reversed, I think that’s really tragic. And they say there are very few detransitioners. I don’t think that’s true. I think there’s a lot more detransitioners that want to reverse this and come back than are being reported.”
