In a recent study, the Public Religion Research Institute found a bipartisan decrease in approval of transgenderism and laws codifying the ideology.
Nearly half of Americans want individuals to use bathrooms in accordance with their sex, not “gender identity.” It was reported that last year, an overwhelming 47% of Americans favored the legislation, dubbed “bathroom bills,” to enforce this. Additionally, 52% of Americans, up from 39%, expressed support for legislation restricting men who identify as women from participating in women’s high school sports.
- In the Democratic party’s voter base, support for transgender ideology has dropped slightly from 74% approval in 2018 to 68% approval currently.
What happens next? As public opinion about transgender ideology consolidates, we’ll likely see politicians on both sides of the aisle further their agendas through legislation. Conservative politicians will aim to pass bathroom bills, ban transgenderism in school sports, and keep LGBTQ+ ideology out of schools (as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has done). Progressive politicians will do the opposite.
