Orwellian WashPost Promotes ‘Gender Affirmation’ Surgery by a Trans Surgeon

Posted on 23 April 2016

The Washington Post is deep in the tank for the leftist transgender movement, employing all the politically correct terminology. On Friday under the “Health and Science” category they posted a story titled “Meet the gender-affirmation surgeon whose waiting list is three years long.” On Thursday, there was a longer article titled “Truth and transgender at age 70; A couple's journey through gender-affirmation surgery.”

“Gender affirmation”? Why would a journalist use a term so distant from the plain English? A sex change operation may seem “affirming” to the surgery customer, but it is a gender denial, and a gender denigration, not an affirmation.
