Take a Look at What Brown University is Doing to Newly Released Study on Gender Dysphoria

Transgender

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.

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.”

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.”

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.

Shameful.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

on

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.

Houses Passes Bill Making it Legal for Banks to Work in Cannabis Industry

The moves comes as the House also takes up a bill that could see America catch up to Mexico and Canada on marijuana legalization.

They say that money doesn’t grow on trees, but that’s because cannabis isn’t a tree. As our nation prepares to reopen its economy after a lengthy pandemic, there are many financial analysts out there who have been wondering aloud if cannabis or marijuana could be a powerful catalysts for fiscal stimulus.  The more potently psychoactive version of the plant is now either legal or decriminalized in a majority of US States, with cannabis, (diet weed, essentially), being federally legal as of this very moment. In states where marijuana is legal, massive economic booms have occurred, which have in turn prompted other legislatures to take a look at adjusting their own laws. One of the main issues in growing this cash-flush business has been the banking sector, on account of the fact that large national banks don’t wish to take on the liability of working within an industry that is under the thumb of federal criminality. The House of Representatives is now looking to change that, and just in time to turbocharge our pandemic recovery. The U.S. House of Representatives on Monday passed legislation that would allow banks to provide services to cannabis companies in states where it is legal, a step towards removing what analysts say is a barrier to development of a national industry. Lawmakers voted 321-101 to approve the bill and send it to the Senate. The bill clarifies that proceeds from legitimate cannabis businesses would not be considered illegal and directs federal regulators to craft rules for how they would supervise such banking activity. Bankers around the nation have been clamoring for such a bill for some time, hoping to cash in on this green gold rush before it’s too late. Both Canada and Mexico have federally legalized marijuana, leaving the USA as a laggard in western society.
