The latest poll from Gallup suggests that an overwhelming majority of Americans remain opposed to so-called “transgender” people participating in sports for the wrong gender, despite ongoing social and political efforts to normalize such practices.
As the Washington Free Beacon reports, the poll shows that a staggering 69 percent of respondents believe people who identify as “transgender” should remain in the sports that correspond to their actual biological gender. This marks a 7-point increase from a similar survey taken two years prior.
Meanwhile, only about 26 percent of Americans support the idea of transgender people competing on their preferred teams, down from 34 percent who supported this idea last year. The new poll also shows that 55 percent of respondents consider it “morally wrong” to attempt to change one’s gender, marking a 4-point increase from last year.
The results reflect an ongoing backlash against transgenderism at both a political and cultural level. Over the last year, at least 20 states have passed laws forbidding biological males from competing in women’s sports, in addition to numerous other laws cracking down on the promotion of transgenderism in public schools or state and local governments.
American consumers have also expressed their overwhelming disapproval of corporate attempts to promote transgenderism. At the onset of June, which is considered by some to be a “pride month” that celebrates homosexuality, transgenderism, and the rest of the “LGBTQ” agenda, multiple companies faced massive boycotts over their support for transgenderism, including Bud Light, Target, and the LA Dodgers.
