Trans Group Condemns Anderson Cooper’s Sensationalist Segment

The National Center for Transgender Equality is calling out Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show Anderson Live for a segment running today about a someone who claims Propecia, a medication for male pattern baldness, made her transgender. Contrary to her claims, the experience of gender identity is a person’s “internal sense” of their gender and that cannot simply be altered by changes in hormone levels. NCTE is “surprised, saddened, and disappointed” that Anderson Live is promoting “this type of sensationalism and misinformation.”
