Douglas Murray vs. transgender people

Douglas Murray is a conservative British author and anti-transgender activist.


Douglas Kear Murray was born July 16, 1979 in London. He graduated from Oxford. In 2006 he wrote a book defending neoconservatism. He was director of Centre for Social Cohesion, but conflicts about their anti-immigration and anti-Islamist stances forced the organization to merge into the Henry Jackson Society after Murray left.

Murray has written for most major anti-trans publications, including The Spectator, The Daily Telegraph, National Review, The Wall Street Journal, UnHerd, and the New York Post. In February 2022, Murray became a Fox News contributor. He is a fellow at the National Review Institute.

Anti-transgender activism

Murray identifies as gay and aligns with the faction of anti-trans queer conservatives.

Murray has said that it is a lie that a man can become a woman. In September 2020, during an appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast, Murray compared accepting trans people to “late-empire sign of things falling apart”. He has stated that he thinks there is no such thing as non-binary gender.

Murray’s 2019 book The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race and Identity has a section called Trans. He believes that identity politics are a threat to Western civilization.
