Transgender Psychologist Thinks the Movement Has Gone ‘Too Far’

'They're not saying that their gender is a raccoon. They're saying that their gender has the same, like, chaotic, Dumpster vibes as raccoons...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Transgender psychologist Erica Anderson recently made a statement saying the trans movement overextended itself, the Los Angeles Times reported.

I think it’s gone too far,” said Anderson, who was born male but now identifies and presents as female.

“For a while, we were all happy that society was becoming more accepting and more families than ever were embracing children that were gender variant,” added the Oakland, Calif.-based clinical psychologist. “Now it’s got to the point where there are kids presenting at clinics whose parents say, ‘This just doesn’t make sense.’”

Anderson, known professionally as “Dr. Erica,” has been at the forefront of this movement for years, and has seen an extreme influx of young patients claiming to be transgender over the past two years.

“A fair number of kids are getting into it because it’s trendy,” Anderson told the Washington Post in 2018. “I think in our haste to be supportive, we’re missing that element.”

Anderson said that increased social isolation provided by the COVID lockdowns, combined with increased time on social media and the acceptance of the trans movement with young people is truly affecting their development.

Much of the movement’s growing popularity may be attributable to the cultural indoctrination tactics deployed by major corporations responsible for kids’ programming, including Disney and Nickelodeon, as well as pro-trans grooming within the public education system.

But social-media platforms like TikToc and Twitter, which last year helped popularize the term “yassification” as the use of a facial filter to switch one’s gender appearance, have led to a more agressive spread among young social-media users who may be particularly vulnerable and susceptible to peer pressure.

Anderson went on to tell the story of a 13-year-old girl who started identifying as a male. The patient had “come out” two months prior, despite not having met with a psychologist.

“Why is this kid on testosterone so precipitously?” Anderson asked colleagues.

It was agreed that the child would discontinue hormone treatment and offered a referral to a gender specialist.

Anderson also told the story of 16-year-old Cody, who identified as “a guy, but slightly to the left.”

When asked what that meant, Cody responded: “Not one or the other, but also in, like, multiple other dimensions.”

“A lot of the people I’m friends with experience gender more as like a specific vibe rather than a physical category,” the teen went on. “One friend says that their gender is the same vibe as a raccoon. They’re not saying that their gender is a raccoon. They’re saying that their gender has the same, like, chaotic, Dumpster vibes as raccoons.”

Anderson was also interviewed by Abigail Shrier, author of Irriversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, and said too many medical professionals are rushing their patients into transitions.

Despite pressure from activists supporting the trans agenda, Anderson has stood firm by  skepticism and encouraged others to inquire more deeply before rushing headlong into any life-altering decisions.

“I have a dictum: When in doubt, doubt,” Anderson said. “Questioning is a good thing. How are you going to find out if you are lockstep with whatever conclusion you come to first?”
