“In other words, we had two choices: censor the doctor’s words or have no video on the world’s biggest video platform. This should horrify every YouTube user—and anyone who values the importance of a public square featuring a variety of perspectives.”
(Pulpit & Pen) After being on the platform for two years, YouTube banned a video of Dr. Michelle Cretella, a pediatrician and executive director at the American Academy of Pediatricians, who explained that dismembering body parts is a symptom of mental illness.
The board-certified pediatrician gives medical facts in the video and demonstrates that ‘transgenderism’ doesn’t really exist. Rather, the thought that one is the “wrong gender” is body dysmorphia, a reason for mental health counseling rather than going under the knife. According to the media giant, YouTube, giving medical facts is “hate speech.”
