Alice Cooper described transgendersim as a “fad” during a new interview with Stereogum.

The ‘School’s Out’ singer insisted that it is confusing to children and said that discussion around the sensitive issue had “gone now to the point of absurdity”.

He said that he felt children were not mature enough to make major decisions about their gender identity.

Cooper also took aim at “the whole woke thing” claiming that society has taken progressive language too far. “Who’s making the rules?” he asked. “It’s getting to the point now where it’s laughable.

MSN reports: He told Stereogum: “I’m understanding that there are cases of transgender, but I’m afraid that it’s also a fad, and I’m afraid there’s a lot of people claiming to be this just because they want to be that.

“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 telling him, ‘Yeah, you’re a boy, but you could be a girl if you want to be.’ “

“I think that’s so confusing to a kid. It’s even confusing to a teenager. You’re still trying to find your identity, and yet here’s this thing going on, saying, ‘Yeah, but you can be anything you want. You can be a cat if you want to be.’ “

The 75-year-old musician questioned who is “making the rules” as he questioned “the whole woke thing”.

He added: “I don’t know one person that agrees with the woke thing. I don’t know one person. Everybody I talk to says, ‘Isn’t it stupid?’ “And I’m going, well, I respect people. I respect people and who they are, but I’m not going to tell a seven-year-old boy, ‘Go put a dress on because maybe you’re a girl,’ and he’s going, ‘No, I’m not. I’m a boy.’ “So I say let somebody at least become sexually aware of who they are before they start thinking about if they’re a boy or a girl.” Cooper – whose real name is Vincent Furnier – insisted it comes down to “genitals”, and that there is a different in language. He explained: “There’s a difference between ‘I am a male who is a female, or I’m a female that’s a male’ and wanting to be a female. You were born a male. Okay, so that’s a fact. You have these things here. “Now, the difference is you want to be a female. Okay, that’s something you can do later on if you want to. But you’re not a male born a female.”
