After posting his thoughts on gender-affirming care for minors, KISS‘s Paul Satnley got some backlash on the internet, and was accused of transphobia.

In order to make his thoughts clearer, following the controversy, Stanley has tweeted a new statement:

Most importantly and above all else, I support those struggling with their sexual identity while enduring constant hostility and those whose path leads them to reassignment surgery. It’s hard to fathom the kind of conviction that one must feel to take those steps.

A paragraph or two will remain far too short to fully convey my thoughts or point of view, so I will leave that for another time and place.
