A well-known transgender activist is sounding the alarm on the transitioning of children, warning that many of the protections once in place have evaporated — and that the trans movement is engaging in deceptive language.
Buck Angel, 59, identifies as a “transexual man,” was born female, and began transitioning three decades ago. Despite Angel’s identity, the activist is honest about reality.

“I am not a biological man. I never will be. I’m very honest about that, and it’s why the world is accepting of me,” Angel said. “So why are we teaching kids to lie?”
Angel warned about some of the mistruths coming from the transgender movement, particularly when it comes to rhetoric. With female terms being changed or limited to things like “period people” and “birthing people,” Angel said the deception is increasing and is unfair to women.
But beyond the lies, Angel raised concerns about safety and the notion that “anyone can be trans,” which Angel called untrue.
Angel, who has a self-described mental disorder called gender dysphoria, said the system once in place to make sure people were definitive about their quest to transition is no longer solidified, according to Fox News.
Watch Angel’s comments:
“Now we have trans with no gender dysphoria, no need for it to be a disorder, no need for mental health care, self ID, affirmation therapy,” Angel told Fox News. “That says to me, on some level, some form of indoctrination. It’s like, ‘Anyone can be trans, join the party.'”
Angel, who has received pushback for speaking out, said the transgender community is “being weird” and is “fast-tracking” transgender services for kids rather than taking time to ask appropriate questions.
“I see a vast, huge desire to fast track, for lack of a better term, these children into this space of trans kids,” Angel said. “I personally believe blocking puberty could be disastrous.”
Angel also warned that “some people are being told they’re trans when they’re not” and described the permanent nature of the decision to transition.
“Once you choose this life and do this what I did, there really is no turning back,” the activist added.

These comments come amid an increased debate over the impact of the transgender movement on children — a movement that stands in opposition to biblical truths and norms.
