Filmmaker Chris Rufo said Thursday that ‘Real Time’ host Bill Maher was right to take issue with the “trend” of the transgender movement among children, arguing that it has been used as a tool by some to signal the status.

“The kind of transgender status became elite status, and even when I had my kids in public schools in Seattle, some of them had gone through that process,” Rufo said on “The Brian Kilmeade Show.” .

“You have to look at the cultural incentives of these places,” he continued. “And then most Americans, people who are in the middle class or the stereotypical suburbs of the country have to figure out how to protect themselves from it because unfortunately what happens in America’s elite starts to ripple through the rest of the world. of the country.”

Maher took issue with the broader movement on his show last week, saying it was okay to “ask questions” about a movement affecting many children as they transition.

“There’s nothing wrong with asking about something very new and involving children,” Maher said. “The answer can’t always be that everyone in the marginalized community is automatically right, Trump card, end of discussion, because we’re literally experimenting on children.”


Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, said many children in America are not supported by strong family units.

“I think a lot of these things, unfortunately, are tied to where you have young people who are not served by adults, they are not served by institutions, they are not served by strong families,” said Rufo. “And they’re looking to find some sort of solution to the pain and the anxiety that they’re feeling.”
