'Everyone is going to get sued': Joe Rogan tells Aaron Rodgers the pendulum is about to swing back on the sex-change industry

Joe Rogan is convinced the day of reckoning draws nigh for those who have participated in the mutilation of the mentally compromised in the name of "gender-affirming care."

Fresh off reaching a new deal with Spotify estimated to be worth $250 million, Rogan told New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the Feb. 7 episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience" that the recent story about de-transitioners in the New York Times is yet another sign the pendulum is swinging back and poised to knock down the exponents of transgender hysteria.

"Even the f***ing New York Times wrote a major story about de-transitioners — so people who were convinced at an early age that they were trans and now they are de-transitioning," Rogan told Rodgers. "Their lives are ruined; their bodies are ruined; they can't have children anymore. They lost their breasts or penis. It is in-f***ing-sanity!"

"This is what Jordan Peterson was warning people about in 2016 when I first met him," continued Rogan. "And everybody was like, 'Why do you care about what's happening in colleges? These are just fringe things that are happening in colleges.'"

"Those people are going to graduate, and they're going to enter into the workforce, and it's a new mentality that exists. It's not an objective reality mentality. It's an ideologically-based mentality that's going to change the world at large unless we stop it in its tracks," said the host.

A bright light in a dark place

Rogan was referencing Pamela Paul's Feb. 2 piece in the Times, which highlighted how the ever-expanding trans regime's medicalization and victimization of minors is not as advertised.

Grace Powell, a woman who had body issues as an adolescent, told the Times she was swayed by the false narrative "that if you don't transition, you'll kill yourself." Consequently, she had her parents cart her off at the age of 17 to a so-called gender specialist.

In her senior year of high school, Powell started taking irreversible, sterilizing cross-sex hormones. Before college, she had her healthy breasts lopped off.

The mutilated young woman indicated that at no point during her medical or surgical transmogrification did anyone ask her about her body dysmorphia or depression. Therapists and doctors just gleefully ran her through the process, assuring Powell the chemicals and slices would ultimately help.

Paul noted that former advocates are also jumping ship, including Stephanie Winn, an Oregon therapist trained in "gender-affirming care" who has come out against rushing minors into the process. Her belated resistance prompted an investigation by her professional overseers and criticism from LGBT radicals.

Even some die-hard LGBT activists and transvestites are taking a step back. Aaron Kimberly, a woman who attempts to pass as a man, left her job working at a British Columbia clinic in protest after she was instructed to support hormone therapy for patients regardless of whether they were mentally ill or "severely unwell."

Paul also noted how social constructivists have not only worked hard to play up anecdotal and self-reported cases as demonstrative of greater sex-change trends but have also attempted to suppress real evidence indicating sex-change medical interventions are both unnecessary and harmful. They are now finding it increasingly hard to maintain their deceptions.

High time for lawsuits

Rogan stressed that the Times' publication of Paul's de-transitioner piece "is big."

"Do you know why? ... Because of trial lawyers. Everyone is going to get sued, and it's going to be a big f***ing problem because you've got thousands of people that have unfortunately given into this," said the podcast host.

According to Rogan, these lawsuits would hold those in the mutilation industry to task for ignoring children's long-understood inability to properly calculate risk, understand consequence, and resist manipulation — the same understanding that previously led to consent laws as well as to prohibitions on kids getting tattoos and joining the military.

Already, various victims have begun to sue the medical practitioners who savaged their bodies.

Blaze News reported in September that Luka Hein, a Nebraska woman whose sex-change surgery left her breastless, in a constant state of pain, and most likely infertile, has filed a suit accusing University of Nebraska Medical Center and UNMC medical practitioners Jean Amoura, Perry Johnson, Stephan Barrientos, and therapist Megan Smith-Sallan of malpractice.

Harmeet Dhillon, the founder of the Center for American Liberty, representing Hein in the case, said, "Doctors should not behave to vulnerable children or families in this manner, period. Doctors should not be mutilating and permanently disfiguring children, period, without some medical necessity, which did not present itself in this case."

Dillon has also been involved in de-transitioner Chloe Cole's legal action against the Permanent Medical Group, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals that "performed, supervised, and/or advised [her] transgender hormone therapy and surgical intervention" — a process that began when Cole was just 13 years old.

After Cole sued, Kayla Lovdahl of California similarly sued Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and four doctors for causing "deep physical and emotional wounds and severe regret."

The Daily Signal recently noted that a law firm was launched in Dallas last year that singularly serves de-transitioners looking for the equivalent of their pound of flesh.

Campbell Miller Payne — founded by Jordan Campbell, Ron Miller, and Josh Payne — indicated in December that it already filed lawsuits on behalf of four clients and was discussing potential action with an additional 40 prospective clients.

Multitudes of clients will likely pursue such legal services over the coming years.

A paper published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology in August indicated so-called gender-affirming surgery tripled from 2016 to 2019. The study, which was not exhaustive, identified 48,019 victims who underwent sex-change mutilations. 56.6% of victims underwent breast and chest procedures. 35.1% had their genitals mutilated. 7.7% of the patients were between he ages of 12 and 18.

Just as the number of sex-change surgeries has skyrocketed in recent years, so has the number of youths branded with "gender dysphoria" diagnoses.

A 2022 Reuters report indicated that the number of minors ages 6-17 diagnosed with gender dysphoria jumped from 15,172 nationally in 2017 to 42,167 in 2021. It appears the apparent social contagion worked strongest in solidly blue states such as California, New York, and Washington.

Aaron Rodgers intimated that the sex-change industry successfully preys upon children's concerns about fitting in and ostracization: "It's kind of in vogue to be non-binary or whatever."

"I don't know why they're just so hell-bent on going after the kids," continued Rodgers. "Obviously ... there's huge money in it."

"Leave the kids alone," added the NFL quarterback.

"Leave the f***ing kids alone," agreed Rogan.
