In a recent article published by Epoch Times, AMC Theatres faced intense criticism and ultimately canceled screenings of the documentary film “No Way Back: The Reality of Gender-Affirming Care.” The film, which aimed to explore the risks and negative effects of “gender-affirming” surgeries, became the target of protests led by the Queer Trans Project, resulting in its nationwide removal from theaters.
The documentary featured interviews with individuals who had undergone medical treatments for gender dysphoria and presented insights from experts in various relevant fields. Despite the filmmakers’ intentions to provide an unbiased examination of the topic, the Queer Trans Project labeled the documentary as “anti-trans” and mobilized supporters to demand its cancellation.
While the cancellation was celebrated as a victory by the project, the documentary’s distributors expressed disappointment, asserting that the film was not meant to be anti-trans. Detransitioner Laura Becker criticized the suppression of free speech and emphasized the importance of addressing mental health concerns and medical ethics within the context of gender-affirming care.
This incident further fuels the ongoing debate surrounding gender-affirming care for minors. While some medical organizations endorse such treatments, others question their impact on mental health and highlight potential feelings of loneliness. As discussions continue, it is essential to foster an environment that encourages open dialogue and respects diverse viewpoints.
Update: The Nowaybackfilm.com website displays a message stating, “We’ve been canceled!” The creators of the documentary film express their disappointment, referring to those who opposed the film as “intolerant, illiberal, histrionic ignorant loudmouths” who exerted pressure on AMC theaters to cancel the screenings. However, they remain determined to make the film available for streaming and on DVD in the near future, urging supporters to sign up for updates and not let the opposition prevail.
