How old do you have to be to determine if you are male or female?
That question seems to be at the center of a heated debate between a popular blogger and a lawmaker from Nashville after Tennessee legislators advanced a handful of proposals that would ban gender-affirming care for transgender youth.
The push in Tennessee comes as state lawmakers across the United States are introducing dozens of restrictions targeting LGBTQ people, even as critics warn that such proposals are discriminatory and harmful.
Matt Walsh is an American right-wing political author of four books and host of The Matt Walsh Show podcast. He’s also the same writer for The Daily Wire who shared videos last year of a Vanderbilt doctor calling such transgender surgeries “huge moneymakers.”
