Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider ‘not gonna take’ being called ‘transphobe’ for opposing surgery on kids
June 16, 2023
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider says that while he supports the LGBT community, he is against children medically changing their gender.
Referencing Twisted Sister’s classic hit song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” Snider said he’s “not gonna take it” when he is called a “transphobe” because he does not support children making permanent decisions to reaffirm the gender they identify with, Fox News Digital reported Thursday.
“I think irresponsible parenting is the norm these days rather than the exception. I’m amazed sometimes at just the missteps, and there are things that seem so obvious and yet some parents just don’t seem to get it,” he said.
“We’re all making mistakes here but as a parent there are certain things that you come to know, and one thing you come to know is that your kids don’t know everything,” he also said. “Certainly, the younger you are, the less ability you have to make really the smartest decisions, lifetime decisions.”
