Brown University Removes Article on Teen Gender Dysphoria…The Reason Why is Insane

Published

on

Our nation’s higher learning institutions are currently a battlefield for a mass battle between reason and ideology.

Ivy League schools like Brown have long been the gold standard for education, where future leaders, CEOs, groundbreaking scientists, and time-honored authors are forged.

Now, they have slowly eroded into hotbeds of far-left progressive thought, full of “safe spaces” and anti-Americanism, where single-sex organizations and any shred of patriotism are banned.

Still, one Brown scholar had the good sense to research a stunning phenomenon that everyone should know about: “rapid-onset gender dysphoria.”

Academic researcher Lisa Littman noticed that many parents in online forums were reporting their children suddenly showing signs of gender dysphoria or identifying as transgender once a member of their peer group, particularly when every member of their peer group, themselves identified as transgender.

Here is the abstract for the paper she wrote about her findings:

In on-line forums, parents have been reporting that their children are experiencing what is described here as “rapid-onset gender dysphoria,” appearing for the first time during puberty or even after its completion. The onset of gender dysphoria seemed to occur in the context of belonging to a peer group where one, multiple, or even all of the friends have become gender dysphoric and transgender-identified during the same timeframe. Parents also report that their children exhibited an increase in social media/internet use prior to disclosure of a transgender identity. The purpose of this study was to document and explore these observations and describe the resulting presentation of gender dysphoria, which is inconsistent with existing research literature.

In reality, this is a sensible premise.

In 2018, this is cultural anathema.

The National Post reports on what happened next:

Littman’s study, years in careful gestation, is receiving plaudits from longtime experts in the field of gender dysphoria, but also blowback from transactivists. In a telephone interview, Littman said she was not surprised at this, as any research findings to do with public health can arouse passionate response and ruffle the feathers of those invested in their belief system. She found reviewing Reddit, SubReddit and Tumblr comments very troubling. Disparagement of heterosexuals and “cisgenders” is rife. Contempt for parents is encouraged. Feelings of victimhood are promoted. These echo chambers can be harmful, Littman says, “because teens are encouraged to cut themselves off from their nurturing support systems.”

Brown, who originally tweeted out a link to her article, quickly removed it from their websites at the pressure of transgender activists who clearly felt the same way as the folks Littman encountered online.

Twitter was quick to hit back on what is clearly a serious intellectual outrage: covering up the findings of a scientific study for the sake of not ruffling any feathers:

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
