Brown University has decided that the truth uncovered in their recent study on gender dysphoria are far too inconvenient and problematic to their overall agenda to undermine traditional sexual values, so they are going to censor it.
That’s right. The school conducted it’s own research on the topic and is keeping the full results from seeing the light of day, all because their findings don’t fit neatly with their agenda.
Brown took down a news article about the study on “rapid-onset gender dysphoria,” a phenomenon where teens in a friend group who never experienced questions about their gender before, suddenly identify as transgender at the same time. This occurs typically after a flood of social media use, and binge-watching YouTube videos about transitioning.Advertisement - story continues below
The Daily Wire first reported Brown’s removal of its transgender research. The Ivy League university claims it is still committed to “academic freedom.”
“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,” wrote the study’s author Lisa Littman, an assistant professor in behavioral sciences at Brown. “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.”Trending:
The study was published in PLOS One, a peer-reviewed science journal, earlier this month. The study was based on 256 parent-completed surveys. Over 62 percent of the teens had previously been diagnosed with at least one mental health disorder or neurodevelopmental disability.
Parents reported their children “exhibited an increase in social media/internet use prior to disclosure of a transgender identity.” Findings led to the hypothesis that “friends and online sources could spread certain beliefs.”Advertisement - story continues below
For instance, parents said they witnessed “clusters of gender dysphoria outbreaks” in their children’s friend circles “in a pattern that seems statistically unlikely based on previous research.”
The results raise the possibility of “social and peer contagion,” which is doctor speak for kids can influence other kids and promote certain emotions and behaviors in them. Peer contagion has been linked to depression, eating disorders, and even drug use.
So, basically, the reason you’re suddenly seeing so many cases of transgenderism among teenagers is because kids are influencing each other’s behavior and thinking in such a way as to spread this psychologically to one another.
It sounds crazy, but honestly, it makes a lot of sense. No wonder it seems this stuff is running rampant. It’s like some sort of strange psychological, emotional flu bug.
This is why conservatives harp on kids in public schools being taught to normalize transgenderism at such a young age. Many of these kids would’ve probably never thought about such things, but now, thanks to our twisted “progressive” culture, it gets into their heads and impacts their lives negatively.
