Megyn Kelly Defends Chaz Bono From Transphobic Attacks

As was noted in a previous post, Dr. Keith Ablow has been up in arms over the notion of a transman on Dancing with the Stars, because he believes that impressionable young children will be encouraged to change genders. Fox News' own Megyn Kelly, however, grills Dr. Ablow on his anti-transgender views which she deems irrational and hateful. Kelly rightfully declares that sex reassignment surgery is not some fad which children will seek to emulate, even quoting John M. Oldham, President of the American Psychiatric Association, who said recently that there is "no evidence that viewing a television game show with a transgender contestant would induce Gender Identity Disorder in young people."

Check out the video of the interview here.
