The Australian likens being trans to coronavirus


The newspaper is well known for its its “appalling” coverage of transgender issues, which includes articles such as “They’re castrating children”, “Transgender project ‘out of balance’” and “Corrupting kids’ thinking”. And one of the latest controversial articles calls transgender people, especially youth, a global epidemic. “With the coronavirus dominating the news, Queensland’s health authorities have been urged to confront an under-reported global contagion involving troubled teenage girls declaring they are ‘born in the wrong body,’” the article reads, later quoting an academic who likened being trans to eating disorders and ignoring that fact that his own university publicly distanced itself from him after such a claim. For months, The Australian has been publishing claims of a transgender “social contagion” in a section of its website dedicated entirely to sex and gender.
