Use Finasteride At Mandi's Risk

What Was Anderson Thinking!?

Anderson Cooper Knocked For Segment On Drug-Induced Transgender Claim

Anderson Cooper is being criticized for interviewing a transgender woman who claims an anti-baldness drug caused her to question her gender.

Mandi appeared Thursday on Anderson Live, and told Cooper that Finasteride caused her to become transgender.

Mandi said she had never questioned her gender before taking the drug.

“No. I had never worn a piece of women's clothing. … I had questioned my sexuality a little bit when I was younger. I did have an uncle who was gay. And when I was younger I thought maybe … I questioned if I was bisexual,” she said.

She later called the experience “a life and death struggle.”

“I went into severe depression. By the time I got to 2011, you know, my marriage had ended, I was living alone. I was having physical feminization symptoms in my body – breast growth, you know, other symptoms like that. And emotionally I was having female type feelings as well. It stressed me out to no end.”

The National Center for Transgender Equality criticized the show for airing the segment, calling it “sensationalist.”

“In the past, Anderson Cooper and his team have earned a great deal of respect from trans people for their coverage of our issues,” Mara Keisling, executive director of the group, said in a statement. “Tomorrow, they'll throw all of that away. Worst of all, they seem set on misinforming the public about the causality of trans identity.”
