Paul Stanley Responds to Reaction to His Gender-Affirming Care Statement
Paul Stanley has followed up on his statement earlier this week about gender-affirming care, which received a lot of attention in the media.
Stanley shared a statement on April 30 across multiple social media platforms titled “My Thoughts On What I’m Seeing.” The statement contained multiple inaccuracies pertaining to parents seeking gender-affirming care for their trans/non-binary children. (A breakdown and examination of those inaccuracies can be read in the article below.)
Stanley’s follow-up statement released today (May 4) reads as follows:
“While my thoughts were clear, my words clearly were not.
Most importantly and above all else, I support those struggling with their sexual identity while enduring constant hostility and those whose path leads them to reassignment surgery. It’s hard to fathom the kind of conviction that one must feel to take those steps.
A paragraph or two will remain far too short to fully convey my thoughts or point of view so I will leave that for another time and place.”
Stanley did not specify the time and place when he may details his thoughts or point of view on parents seeking gender-affirming care for their trans/non-binary children.
