$1 million federal grant will help study of transgender kids
https://apnews.com ^ | April 12, 2018 | DAVID CRARY

The first large-scale, national study of transgender children, including some as young as 3, is poised to expand thanks to a five-year, $1 million grant awarded Thursday by the National Science Foundation to the professor leading the project.

University of Washington psychologist Kristina Olson, 36, was named winner of the NSF’s annual Alan T. Waterman Award, the government’s highest honor for scientists still in the early phases of their careers. The NSF said the choice was unanimous, and noted that pediatricians are already using her findings to raise awareness about gender diversity.

$1 million federal grant will help study of transgender kids

Every parent of a "transgender" kid needs to be locked up for child abuse, and preferably beaten severely before being locked up.

How can a 3-year old possibly be “transgender”?

Probably going to be like most cancer or Alzheimer’s studies, nothing about how to actually prevent or discover causes, just narrowly focused on specific treatments. What a waste of money. And in the gender dysphoria brain damage world, there is ONLY ONE HOLY GRAIL LINE OF TREATMENT: you simply must become the other gender. Sheesh. Some open minded scientific method, huh?

If you knew the answer to that question you would be our newest millionaire, thanks to the other geniuses at .gov. ;-)

I think my new occupation is going to be studying things. If money is so easy to get for this BS, then I’m all in. Maybe I’ll study if bugs sh*t like people or maybe study if water is wet or if people need food to live. Where is my millions?

What a horrible thing to say.

Children are born all the time lately with neuro-sexual defects. What the hell are you blaming parents for? We don’t know what yet causes it. Even if we find out it was soft plastics the mother had been exposed to her whole life, we might be two generations from being able to prevent a uterus from containing them. A six year old girl today might have been exposed enough to cause problems in her future child 20 years from now.

Sexual brain and genitalia “malformations” (for want of a better word) are REAL. They happen during a very small window, maybe as small as a week, of early fetal development.

And if your response is, well, I blame the parents for “transitioning” their child, please understand the average American couple, surprised to find their three year old boy only wants to wear pink and purple, and only enjoys playing with my little ponies and barbies. What are they to do? If they seek help from a doctor or psychologist, they will be told that the ONLY thing to do is to “transition” the child. There are no other “acceptable” (by these official boards) treatments.

None of this is the fault of the loving parents.

This has been done before:

Alfred C. Kinsey (23 June 1894—26 August 1956) was a sex researcher who waged
a “private war against conservative morality.” He has been described as having an
influence on modern society greater than almost anybody else.

Why did Alfred Kinsey, the father of sex research, seek out convicted sex offenders and
represent their behavior as that of typical American males? Why did he say that
adult-child sex was “harmless”?

He was also a homosexual sadomasochist who aided and abetted the molestation of
hundreds of children in order to obtain data on “child sexuality.”

There are only 2 genders. The science is settled. Now where is my one million bucks?

I’d say they’re a little late with the study. The damage has already been done.

Don’t spend my money to tell us that chopping off a kid’s dicque is good for the child.

It’s obvious that the result of the “study” will go that way, and not the way of reason and fact.

Some of the study’s early findings were reported two years ago in the journal Pediatrics — notably that the 73 children being tracked at that time had rates of depression and anxiety no higher than non-transgender children in control groups.

The first large-scale, national study of transgender children, including some as young as 3 . . .

A lot of 3 y/o children decide to be a boy, or a girl, or a truck, or a doggy, or a kitty based on something trivial. Left on their own, they decide to be something else the next day. If cursed with a social justice warrior for a parent (or with a pair of same-sex gender activists), the parent will latch on to a shallow comment and turn that into the child's identity, just for bragging rights with their LGBTQIDIOT community. Child abuse is incredibly sad.

There’s a little test they do at the hospital when a kid is born to determine gender, and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than $1 million.

Thank you for referencing that article Beowulf9. Please note that the following critique is directed at the article and not at you.

"$1 million federal grant will help study of transgender kids"

FR: Never Accept the Premise of Your Opponent’s Argument

Patriots are reminded that the states have never expressly amended the Constitution to authorize Congress to appropriate taxes for the indicated purpose.

Patriots need to elect new lawmakers in the 2018 elections who will not only support Pres. Trump's MAGA, but will also respect Congress's limited power to appropriate taxes.

And to make tax reform permanent, patriots will need to work with their state lawmakers to support Pres. Trump in leading the states to repeal the 16th and ill-conceived 17th Amendments (17A).

And speaking of 17A …

Until the states wake up and repeal 17A, as evidenced by concerns about the integrity of the outcome of Alabama's and Pennsylvania's special elections, patriot candidates need to win elections by a large enough margin to compensate for possible deep state ballot box fraud and associated MSM scare tactics.
