Suzy Weiss vs. transgender people

Suzy Weiss is an American cultural critic and anti-transgender activist. Weiss’ work focuses on maintaining sex segregation and attacking healthcare for gender diverse youth.


Suzanne Lee “Suzy” Weiss was born July 6, 1995. Parents Lou and Amy Weiss run Weisslines, a flooring retailer. Weiss’ sibling is intellectual dark web promoter Bari Weiss. Weiss grew up in Pittsburgh and graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School in 2013.

In 2013, Weiss wrote a piece for Bari’s former employer The Wall Street Journal about being rejected from colleges for being a straight white person with normal abilities and habits. The piece received widespread negative attention, and Weiss later claimed it was “satire.”

Weiss then earned a bachelor’s degree from University of Michigan in 2018.

While in high school, Weiss served as a US Senate page, followed by college internships at STATE Bags,, Funny or Die, The Heymann Brothers, and Ogilvy & Mather.

Weiss was a reporter for the New York Post from 2018 to 2023, then joined Bari Weiss’ publication in 2021.

In 2021, Weiss wrote a negative piece about transgender athlete Lia Thomas.

In 2022, Weiss wrote a sympathetic profile of ex-transgender activist “Chloe Cole.”
