In an interview published by Stereogum on Aug. 23, rock singer Alice Cooper weighed in on the comments made by his fellow rockers Stanley and Snider: “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,’” he added. Cooper lamented that “it’s gone now to the point of absurdity” before denouncing what he called “this whole woke thing.”

Cooper specifically took issue with the use of the term “birthing person” instead of “mother,” asking “Who is this person that’s making these rules?” After telling the publication that “I don’t get it,” the rocker maintained that “I’m not being old school about it. I’m being logical about it.”

“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,’” Cooper stated. “I look at it this way, the logical way: If you have these genitals, you’re a boy. If you have those genitals, you’re a girl. 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.” 

Additionally, Cooper envisioned a scenario of someone “really taking advantage of this.” According to Cooper, “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, and he’s not in the least bit … He’s just taking advantage of that situation. Well, that’s going to happen. Somebody’s going to get raped, and the guy’s going to say, ‘Well, I felt like a girl that day, and then I felt like a guy.’ Where do you draw this line?”
