We have time and time again raised awareness over the fact that Dr. Phil is airing unscientific and potentially dangerous misinformation about transgender identities. Truth Wins Out an organization that defends LGBT people against anti-gay lies, and the "ex-gay" myth has put out a press release condemning the recent show on transgender children on Dr. Phil.
"Truth Wins Out (TWO) harshly condemned the Dr. Phil Show today, claiming that it exploited Toni, the mother of a transgender child, and placed her in a psychologically abusive situation – which nearly drove her to tears. The episode, “Little Boy Lost,” also falsely portrayed notorious anti-gay activists, Glenn Stanton and Dr. Joseph Nicolosi, as “experts” on gender and homosexuality, says TWO.Enough is enough! It is time to boycott Dr. Phil and stop his lies against the LGBT community.
“Dr. Phil damaged his reputation by choosing sensationalism over professionalism and he ought to be ashamed,” said Wayne Besen, Executive Director of Truth Wins Out. “Instead of exploring this issue in-depth, Dr. Phil sunk to new depths. He exploited a loving mother by ambushing her with disreputable anti-gay activists well known for theories far outside mainstream psychology."
Let the show know you will be boycotting and urge everyone to do so.
