The Infectious Myth - Jenn Smith and Orwellian Transgender Court Case

Jenn Smith, a transgender identifying male, returns to the show to discuss a court case over a transgender-identifying natal female, in which the father’s right to refuse medical treatment on her behalf has been blocked. This is not so unusual, sadly, but in this case the judge is also ordering the father to refer to his daughter only with male words, and is trying to block him from communicating with the press, even when the name of his daughter is protected. Jenn Smith is not only a journalist, speaker and activist, but has also been hit with court orders due to their reporting on this issue. He reports how he informed the judge that one of the reasons why so many people were breaking the court ordered silence, was lack of respect for a court that was trying to force people to speak a lie.   Find out more about Jenn Smith’s activism and journalism at: http://jennsmith.ca
