Anti-transgender activism

In a petition to have Moore removed as editor of Disability & Society, Melanie Yergeau and 1,000 signatories summarized Moore’s anti-trans views:

Moore has amplifiedĀ postings that claim trans suicide rates are a myth; she has made numerous posts that claimĀ trans narratives are a ā€œtrendā€; she has circulatedĀ links to her own eventsĀ that actively argue against transitioning, wherein she has claimed that ā€œself-identification of gender is harmful for children and young peopleā€; and she has on several occasions sharedĀ a crowdfunding pageĀ that purports to raise money for the fight against ā€œgender ideology.ā€ Many of Dr. Mooreā€™sĀ writingsĀ reproduce dangerous transphobic tropes.
