Alice Cooper’s rock’n’roll revolt against trans ideology – spiked

Is the tide finally turning on trans? It can often feel as if every public figure is toeing the woke line, with any dissenting view crushed by cancel culture. Even those rock stars who think of themselves as rebellious, from Billy Bragg to Neil Young, have become boringly conformist. Thank God, then, for Alice Cooper.

In an interview with online music magazine Stereogum this week, the American rock legend gave some refreshingly commonsense takes on gender-identity ideology.

Cooper was especially sceptical about the growing number of kids who identify as trans. ‘I’m understanding that there are cases of transgender [children], but I’m afraid that it’s also a fad’, he said. ‘I find it wrong when you’ve got a six-year-old kid who has no idea. He just wants to play and you’re confusing him [by] telling him, “Yeah, you’re a boy, but you could be a girl if you want to be”.’

Cooper also touched on the threats trans ideology poses to women’s rights and single-sex spaces: ‘A guy can walk into a woman’s bathroom at any time and just say, “I just feel like I’m a woman today”, and have the time of his life in there.’

Saying what we’ve all been thinking, Cooper also summed up ‘the whole woke thing’. ‘It’s getting to the point now where it’s laughable’, he said. ‘Everybody I talk to says, “Isn’t it stupid?”.’

Of course, there is nothing progressive about insisting that boys who play with dolls must really be girls. The gender-bending of past rock stars was about liberating people from those gendered expectations and stereotypes. The trans ideology, on the other hand, repackages them in a woke guise.
