By a 3-to-1 margin, Americans believe there are only two genders, and a majority support laws against transgender treatment for minors.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey found that 71% of American adults agree with the statement that “there are two genders, male and female,” including 57% who "strongly agree."
Twenty-three percent (23%) disagree, including 10% who "strongly disagree."
These findings are just slightly changed from December 2021, when Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling sparked controversy by criticizing transgender ideology.
Several states have recently enacted legislation prohibiting transgender treatment for minors.
Sixty-two percent (62%) of Americans approve of legislation making it illegal to perform sex-change surgery on minors, including 46% who "strongly approve" of such laws.
Thirty percent (30%) disapprove of states passing laws to ban such surgeries on minors, including 18% who "strongly disapprove."
Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Americans approve of laws making it illegal to give hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to minors, including 59% who "strongly approve."
Thirty-one percent (31%) disapprove of laws against HRT for minors, including 18% who "strongly disapprove."
These findings are similar to our survey of likely voters in February.
