Kresta in the Afternoon – November 27, 2018 – Hour 2

+  Queering Science (2 segments)

  • Description: It's been a few years since Time Magazine declared transgenderism to be the next civil rights movement, and we continue to see how this idea has been pushed. Brown University Public Health Professor Lisa Littman recently learned this firsthand after she published a study on Rapid Onset of Gender Dysphoria, a phenomenon in which teens suddenly exhibit signs of gender dysphoria upon hitting puberty. Since this contradicts the "I felt this way since my childhood" explanation, she has faced heavy criticism and the dean of Brown's school of public health issued an apology. Mark Regnerus joins us with a look at the story and on the treacherous nature of scientific work on sexuality.
