Changing Tide on Gender Ideology | Peter Boghossian & “Billboard Chris” Elston
Chris Elston became an activist for the public awareness of child sex “transitions” more than three years ago. He’s been harassed, attacked, and even suffered a broken arm for the message on his billboard: “Children cannot consent to puberty blockers.” In this conversation with Peter Boghossian, Chris explains how the public reception of his message has changed alongside increasing awareness about the myths promoted by gender ideologues.
Peter and Chris compare notes on their techniques for engaging strangers in controversial discussions in the public square. Chris shares various arguments he frequently hears from gender activists and how he addresses them. Peter highlights his use of the “real reason check” in Spectrum Street Epistemology to get to the foundation of a belief. They also discuss the difficulty people have changing their minds in real time, the coercive influence of tribal thinking, and who will be held accountable for medical malpractice on children.
Chris briefly mentions the new documentary about the history of the Dutch Protocol for gender transition. The video, titled “The Transgender Protocol,” is available here with English subtitles.
This podcast was filmed October 30, 2023 at the Alliance for Responsible Citizenship Conference in London, England.
