Megyn Kelly said she needed to “atone” for the past reporting she did when she was at NBC about gender dysphoria and her calls at the time for compassion and tolerance.

During Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast on Friday, the host was speaking with detransitioner Cat Cattinson, Executive Producer of “Affirmation Generation” Joey Brite, and Stephanie Winn, about the media’s role in pushing transgender ideology, something she said she unfortunately was a part of. It was during a discussion about trans activist Dylan Mulvaney and the media’s early focus on trans-identifying Jazz Jennings.

“When I was at NBC I did all these shows on gender dysphoria, kids, and so on — shows for which I feel I need to atone,” Kelly said.

“I really do,” she added. “I just feel like I blindly jumped into, ‘be supportive’ and ‘be kind’ and ‘be compassionate’ — even with kids, without stopping to realize what it was I was platforming, even advocating.”


“I really had my eyes opened since then,” the host continued. “But in any event, I used to be told on those shows by activists on the other side of this issue, ‘Gender is a social construct. It’s nothing but a social construct.’ And I remember thinking, ‘That’s ridiculous. That’s not true. Gender is real. You know, if you’re a woman, you’re a woman. If you’re a man, you’re a man,’ but I think I was conflating things.”

The former NBC host recently told Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro on “The Search” that she’s now crossed the “Rubicon” and gone from telling others to be tolerant to being an “activist” against men being in all girls’ spaces.


“Like, get out, get out of our swimming pools, get out of our locker rooms, get off of our track meets, get out of there,” Kelly said. “We’ll find an accommodation for you. Hopefully you’ll get the help you need. But we are not surrendering girlhood or womanhood to you and your mental issues.”
