According to a new poll, the proportion of Americans who feel that gender is “assigned at birth” has increased in recent years.
More and more Americans are rejecting the idea that gender is unrelated to biological sex, despite the recent upsurge in pro-trans propaganda.
A new Pew Research poll, which was conducted in May 2022 and included 10,188 interviews with American adults, found that 60% of respondents felt that gender “is determined by their birth sex.”
That’s a jump from 56% in June 2021 and 54% in September 2017, suggesting that pushing the pro-trans message on Americans is backfiring.
Despite this, the study revealed that nearly eight in ten Americans believe transgenders face prejudice, and a majority (64 percent) back laws to safeguard transgender people from discrimination in employment, housing, and public areas.
Surprisingly, the poll revealed that a majority of American adults (58%) back “proposals that would force transgender athletes to compete on teams matching their birth sex.” In contrast, 17% of Americans are against them, whereas 24% were undecided.
According to a recent poll, more people support laws that prevent doctors from assisting children undergoing gender transition (46% to 31%).
The results, as expected, fell along partisan lines.
From Pew Research:
“The Democrats and people who lean towards the Democratic Party are roughly 4 times as likely as the Republicans and GOP leaners to believe that a person’s gender may differ from the sex they were born with (61% vs. 13%). Democrats are also considerably more inclined than Republicans to think that our society has not gone far enough in accepting transgender people (59% vs. 10%). In contrast, 66 percent of Republicans believe that society has gone too far in embracing individuals who are transgender.”
