Rock star Paul Stanley of the 70s glamrock band KISS jumped to Twitter to denounce the “sad and dangerous” trend of forcing little kids to undergo transgender surgery and procedures.
The guitarist and father of four admitted that despite his glamrock persona, he is not in favor of putting kids through transgender procedures even as he supports it for adults.
“There is a BIG difference between teaching acceptance and normalizing and even encouraging participation in a lifestyle that confuses young children into questioning their sexual identification as though some sort of game and then parents in some cases allow it,” he wrote in a message he titled “My Thoughts On What I’m Seeing.”
The rocker outlined his argument on Twitter and Instagram, saying that gender identity is not a game of choice nor should it be a “sad and dangerous fad” that indulges the wishes of confused children:

Stanley was joined by rocker Dee Snyder — who is also no conservative — who also said that transgendering is fine for adults, but should not be allowed for children:
