Bill Maher suggests kids are coming out as trans is because it's 'trendy'...
Bill Maher accused kids of coming out as trans is because it's 'trendy' and because being gay 'is not hip enough', on Friday's Real Time.
He began by noting the polls show the number of Americans identifying as LGBTQ has doubled with each passing generation, joking that 'if we follow this trajectory, we will all be gay in 2054.'
Maher then asked if people are allowed to see those increases and ask: 'What's up with that?'
'It wasn't that long ago that when adults asked children what they wanted to be when they grew up, 'They meant what profession,' Maher said.
He then pivoted to suggest that the number of LGBTQ Americans had risen so sharply, a recent ACLU finding claimed abortion rights bans would affect LGBTQ people more than cisgender women giving birth.
'Someone needs to say it - not everything's about you. It's okay to ask questions about something very new,' Maher said.
He then turned to puberty blockers, which are given to transgender youth, which Maher called 'literally experimenting on children' and suggested that the long-term effects haven't been studied enough, showing studies that said it caused lack of bone density and infertility.
