Nearly half of people aged 25-34 believe that “misgendering” someone should be a CRIMINAL offense
By Ethan Huff // Jul 26, 2023

A new survey conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies for Newsweek found that 44 percent of young people between the ages of 25 and 34 believe that it should be a criminal offense for someone to use "incorrect pronouns" in reference to a transgender.

Nearly half of the millennial demographic believes that "misgendering," as they also call it, should be a crime in the United States, while just 31 percent believe that misgendering should count as freedom of speech under the First Amendment.

One in four millennials indicated uncertainty as to whether or not misgendering should be a crime.

The 35-44 age group offered similar feedback with 38 percent of them saying they are in favor of criminalizing misgendering. Conversely, 35 percent of 35-44-year-olds say they are against making misgendering a criminal offense.

Just like the millennial demographic, roughly one in four, or 26 percent, of people aged 35-44 say they have no idea or no opinion as to whether or not using "incorrect pronouns" in reference to a transgender should constitute a crime.

Overall, just 19 percent of America supports making it a crime to misgender someone

The issue of misgendering is at the forefront of the national conversation as the culture war rages on between the angry LGBTs who want everyone to obey their every command, and normal society that just wants the groomers to keep their perversions to themselves.

Nearly half the country has banned the use of puberty blockers and hormones for children under the age of 18 while the other half is pushing to become a "sanctuary" for gender-confused children to flock for "gender-affirming care."

Much of Europe, including Norway and other left-leaning countries, has banned transgender mutilation procedures for children, but in the U.S. the leftist contingent is pushing to expand transgender mutilation procedures to even younger children than already qualify for them.

Federal courts in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Indiana blocked attempts by state legislatures to ban transgender mutilation "care." But Kentucky and Tennessee, along with 18 other states, have successfully banned it.

Among all age demographics, only 19 percent of Americans support the idea of criminalizing misgendering, while 65 percent say they are vehemently opposed to such laws ever taking effect.

Interestingly, among "Generation Z," which includes people between the ages of 18 and 24, there is much less support for making misgendering a crime than among millennials and middle-aged people. Just 33 percent of Americans aged 18 to 24 believe that misgendering should be a crime, while 48 percent disagree with the notion.

If requested to do so, 37 percent of Generation Z indicated that they would respect the wishes of the transgender person and use the pronouns requested. Just 17 percent said that they would ignore such requests.

Twenty-eight percent said their response to such a question would depend on the person asking for it, meaning if they knew the transgender personally, then perhaps they would agree to use alternative pronouns. Seventeen percent said they were unsure what they would do in such a scenario.

"U.S. prisons are beyond overcrowded as it is," one commenter wrote about how the last thing the country needs is more people incarcerated.

"If this is really true, then parents should blame the schools for pressuring kids and others to believe misgendering is a crime," wrote another. "In America, the First Amendment is freedom of speech."

A third commenter pointed to social media as a major driving factor in this sentiment as "influencers" like tranny Dylan Mulvaney are confusing their followers with LGBT propaganda.
