Youth “Transgenderism” The Latest of Many Destructive Psychological Fads March 8, 2018

Psychology/psychiatry are often the butt of jokes, and I think rightly so.  It is far from obvious that in the vast majority of psychological treatment the cure has been worse than the disease.  Tens of millions of Americans are prescribed anti-depressants, and yet more people than ever are depressed, and a disturbing percentage of those on anti-depressants will have a psychotic episode.  26 of the last 27 mass shooters in this country were on anti-depressants.

So-called split personalities received massive media attention in the 80s and 90s and resulted in a huge increase in the number of people reporting this affliction.  After decades of study, however, most science has concluded that the vast majority of those reporting split personalities were faking it.

There have been many other such examples – the mass psychosis of the 60s was “anxiety neurosis” and millions of Americans were placed on tranquilizers.  We have tens of millions of little boys in this country being drugged out of their minds to make them behave more like little girls and make teacher’s jobs easier.  I’m sure you can supply your own examples.

Dr. Jordan Peterson believes we are in one of the most destructive psychological fads ever pushed (@~35:00 language warning for Owen Benjamin, so no embed in the post but the whole middle of the interview is very good) by the media, people desiring to be seen as part of a highly lionized movement given near total moral authority, and probably some parents who want their child to be “special” in the latest culturally approved way – that of pushing kids, almost exclusively little boys, into supposed “transgenderism.”  He believes we as a culture will have hell to pay with the adult product of the kids being experimented on today in one of the most horrific social experiments ever conducted, all for the benefit of the leftist social justice political organizing machine.

Historically, people experiencing genuine gender dysphoria, almost universally as the result of some terrible childhood trauma (generally of a sexual nature), have numbered about 0.01-0.03% of the population.  That is to say, 99.97-99.99% of the population did not experience this.  Now the fad is pushing the number up to where there are more people claiming to be transgender than inclined to the sins of sodom and gomorrah – upwards of 3% of the population:

Many more teenagers than previously thought may identify as transgender or gender non-conforming, a new study in the journal Pediatrics suggested. Only about 0.6 percent of U.S. adults identify with a gender opposite their birth sex, and previous studies showed about 0.7 percent of U.S. teens do so as well. The study published Monday suggested that the percentage might be closer to 3 percent, however. [Several things – I would be very careful with reading too much into these numbers (this post obviously aside!). Everything I have read, and it’s not an inconsiderable amount, on this subject suggests the number of transgenders historically averages are what I stated above – in the hundredths of a percent.  I am very dubious that the current number is 0.7%, which would translate into 2.4 million people!, or that 3% is really even in the realm of possibility – 10 million people!  It’s like the scam they pulled when advocating sodomy was the agenda – 10% of the population is “gay!”  No, it’s not, it’s not even close, first of all, many people drift in and out of the sins of sodom and gomorrah over their life – perhaps over half those who at one time self-identify as “gay” do so – and secondly the number is more like 2%, tops.  So my guess is that these numbers here have been exaggerated at least by a factor of 10, and possibly much higher. Nevertheless, it is not the raw numbers but the trends that this post is about.]

To put that in perspective, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that there were 41.7 million Americans between the ages of 10 and 19. If 0.7 percent of them identify as a gender different from their birth sex, then approximately 292,000 U.S. teens are transgender. If the share is 2.7 percent, however, that would mean 1.13 million U.S. teens are transgender — an increase of 0.86 million.

……….This week, Pediatrics released a study of Minnesota teenagers in grades 9 and 11. The study surveyed 80,929 students, and found that 2,168 (2.7 percent) identified with a gender opposite or different from their birth sex. The study referred to them as “Transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC),” and labeled the other 78,761 (97.3 percent) “cisgender.” [First of all, Pediatrics, along with the American Academy of Pediatrics, which like many other supposedly medical organizations/journals has been co-opted by the hard left.  Secondly, how was the question phrased, and have its results been duplicated (for instance, was the question broadly worded, calling “transgender” those who ever have ANY, even the slightest, confusion over their gender)?  Third, ages 14-16 are the very ages when people are most likely to experience confusion over gender as they experience the onrush of hormones, the often horrid peer environment of the school systems, and most of all, the beginnings of the transition from childhood to adulthood.  In this hyper-sexualized culture, in fact, children such as these are forced to grow up much too fast and are exposed to horrible influence like pornography that can warp their development and push them into the very kinks this study is supposed to be analyzing?  Here’s an interesting idea for research – how about correlating the frequent use of pornography and self-abuse with tendencies towards perversion?  There is a huge body of evidence that points to “transgenders,” like those inclined towards the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah, being not born, but made.  What are the increasingly demonic schools doing to propagate this?]

These results represented a stunning increase from previous estimates. According to government estimates, about 0.6 percent of U.S. adults (1.4 million) identify as transgender. A UCLA study released last year estimated that 0.7 percent of teens between the ages of 13 and 17 are transgender, about 150,000 kids, CBS News reported.

“With growing trans visibility in the United States, some youth might find it safer to come out and talk about gender exploration,” Nic Rider, a University of Minnesota postdoctoral fellow studying transgender health, told CBS News. “Diverse gender identities are more prevalent than people would expect.”

Well I’m more than a bit dubious of this data, but coupled with other revelations, it does seem that the constant, wall-to-wall, glowing media coverage of transgenders and the great moral authority the Left instantly grants them in the cultural space is having an impact.  The number of very young children, even as young as 4, whose parents seek treatment to transform them, outwardly at least, from one gender to another when they can barely go to the bathroom on their own has risen very sharply in the past few years.  There is absolutely zero chance this is a natural phenomenon.  Can no one see the massive possibility for corruption and the most base self-interest in this? And as Dr. Peterson notes, we’re going to have to deal with some extremely ugly repercussions from traumatized adults who, I’m quite certain, will relate tale after tale of how their parents, or their trauma, induced them into drastic changes that literally destroyed their bodies physically and will prevent them from ever leading normal, happy lives.  Who knows the cancers and other ailments that will result from the hormone treatments alone, let alone the prevention of puberty and probable permanent sterility.  But the damage to their souls will, I fear, be much, much worse.

Oh yeah, it’s going to be oh so much fun.  In fact, it’s going to be a cultural disaster of massive proportions, for which the media-industrial complex will call for government intervention, of course, which is the point of it all.  Anything to weaken the family and church and empower the state, they are foursquare for.  And it’s exactly what all those uptight prudish no-fun-at-all Christians were warning about way back in the 70s and 80s when this descent into amoral madness started really getting rolling.

I’m reminded that about 10 to 12 years ago it became very fashionable for teenagers to come “out of the closet.” Gave them special status. For the most part, totally fake.

The children that may have problems are those that are born with both male and female organs. I know of such a person. She weighed only one and a half pounds. Her sex was not yet determined. The doctor made a choice to make her female because she had a uterus. She survived despite great odds. The doctors told parents there was a possibility that she may be attracted to females. Now that she is a teenager she came out and admitted she’s attracted to females. I do feel sorry for her because she might have been destined to be male. She’s doesn’t like dresses and is tomboyish. She has been so torn up that she contemplated suicide. There are very few people like her with a real problem. Please keep her in her prayers. I told the grandparents that she should be encouraged to be chaste. However, in this culture I doubt that will happen.

I wonder why they didn’t do a basic chromosome test. If she has a Y, that means male…even if two xx’s are present. But yes, prayers needed indeed. God bless~
