Today’s Point of View is guest-hosted by Penna Dexter. Her guests include Dr. Michelle Cretella, Aaron Renn, Mona Charen, and Robert Rector.

Dr. Cretella is President of the American College of Pediatricians and will talk to Penna about transgenderism in children. Aaron will join Penna to talk about the tragic landscape of modern relationships. This will segway nicely into Mona Charen and her new book, “Sex Matters,” about how the aggressive feminist agenda undermines women and their relationships. Point of View’s final guest, Robert, shares his wisdom on the complicated issue of welfare reform.

The Tragic Landscape of Modern Relationships.

Mona Charen Show Page
Mona Charen
Columnist, Commentator, Writer
Mona Charen is one of the most prominent conservative writers in the country. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller Useful Idiots, she writes a critically acclaimed syndicated column that appears in more than 200 newspapers, and she is a contributor to National Review.

Her life tracks nearly perfectly with the modern feminist movement. Charen explains, “I’ve been living in its shadow all of my life. Germaine Greer and Betty Friedan were the secular saints of my time. I’ve had both a successful career and a full family life and I don’t hesitate to put family first. You could say I’ve been working on my new book for the past thirty years.”
Sex Matters: How Modern Feminism Lost Touch with Science, Love, and Common Sense
Author of the New York Times bestseller Useful Idiots and popular columnist Mona Charen takes a close, reasoned look at the aggressive feminist agenda undermining the success and happiness of men and women across the country

In this smart, deeply necessary critique, Mona Charen unpacks the ways feminism fails us at home, in the workplace, and in our personal relationships--by promising that we can have it all, do it all, and be it all. Here, she upends the feminist agenda and the liberal conversation surrounding women's issues by asking tough and crucial questions.

Sex Matters tracks the price we have paid for denying sex differences and stoking the war of the sexes--family breakdown, declining female happiness, aimlessness among men, and increasing inequality. Marshaling copious social science research as well as her own experience as a professional as well as a wife and mother, Mona Charen calls for a sexual ceasefire for the sake of women, men, and children.
Robert Rector Show Page
Robert Rector
Senior Research Fellow, Domestic Policy Studies, Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity - The Heritage Foundation
Dubbed the "intellectual godfather" of welfare reform (by National Review Editor Rich Lowry), Rector concentrates on a range of related issues, including the collapse of the marriage culture, the breakdown of the family and other social ills. He is a vocal proponent of marriage education, especially in low-income communities.

Rector played a major role in crafting the 1996 federal welfare reform legislation, which, for the first time, required recipients to work or get job training in exchange for benefits. Since its passage, he has continued to examine not only the mounting costs to the taxpayer (nearly $1 trillion a year) but the role of welfare spending in undermining families.

Rector’s impact on national policy includes the debate over how to fix America’s broken immigration system – both today and the last time around. His current research on the long-term fiscal costs to taxpayers of granting amnesty to an estimated 11 million unlawful immigrants, as envisioned in the Senate’s “comprehensive” immigration reform bill, builds on his influential work seven years earlier.
His recent papers (among those listed below) include “The Fiscal Cost of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the U.S. Taxpayer,” “An Overview of Obama’s End Run on Welfare Reform,” “Marriage: America’s Greatest Weapon Against Child Poverty,” “Reforming the Food Stamp Program” and “Understanding Poverty in the United States."

He holds a bachelor’s degree from the College of William and Mary and a master’s degree in political science from Johns Hopkins University.
He is the co-author of America's Failed $5.4 Trillion War on Poverty, a comprehensive 1995 examination of U.S. welfare programs, and co-editor of Steering the Elephant: How Washington Works (1987). For his research on welfare reform, he received the Dr. W. Glenn and Rita Ricardo Campbell Award, given annually to a Heritage employee who makes "outstanding contributions to the analysis and promotion of a free society."

Dr. Cretella is President of the American College of Pediatricians (College) and a general pediatrician with a special interest in behavioral pediatrics.

Prior to being elected President in 2015, Dr. Cretella chaired the Adolescent Sexuality Committee, Pediatric Psycho-social Development Committee, and Scientific Policy Committee. In these roles she became one of the College's chief researchers, writers and spokespersons on issues of pediatric mental and sexual health. She is regularly consulted by Breitbart News, FRC, One News Now, Relevant Radio and many others. Her article Gender Dysphoria in Children and Suppression of Debate was published in the 2016 summer issue of Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.

Dr. Cretella serves on the Medical Committee of the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity (a national organization of health professionals who advocate for psychotherapy for ego-dystonic homosexuality and gender dysphoria). Dr. Cretella served on the Board of Directors of the National Association for Research and Therapy for Homosexuality (NARTH) from 2010-2015.

Dr. Cretella received her medical degree in 1994 from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. She completed her internship and residency in pediatrics in 1997 at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford, Connecticut. She completed a fellowship in College Health through the University of Virginia in 1999. After 15 years of group practice in rural Connecticut and Rhode Island she left clinical practice to devote more time to family and the College.
