Skip to comments.Study: More children joining this new civil right

A study that shows a huge jump in children who identify as transgender can be traced to a culture pushing the idea.
"Children are steeped in this culture, at least through the developed western world," observes Dr. Micelle Cretella, "that is basically marketing this transgender identity to them."
A study performed earlier this year shows nearly three percent of 13-to 17-year-olds identify as transgender as compared to less than one percent just a year ago.
The study, published by American Academy of Pediatrics, looked at approximately 81,000 ninth and 11th grade students in Minnesota.
Experts say those results can be extrapolated across the nation.

How do you identify as transgendered or anything else involving sex before puberty? Gawd, this is beyond stupid.
Homeschooling is the only sane alternative unless you can afford a GOOD private school.
The crowd members are all card carrying members of the Boy Scouts of America
Debra Soh’s been studying this thing from an objective standpoint for a while now, and the realities are far different than the activists make it seem. According to her, multiple studies have consistently shown that most children outgrow their transgender identity. It’s unconscionable to medically and surgically mutilate and sterilize a child when they are likely to outgrow it.
So you’re implying the two are synonymous ?
The nwo wants genetic dead ends to reduce world population.
Where were all these freaks when I was a kid? I only knew (or knew of) about a half dozen queers in my school years. Was it just that shame was still attached to inappropriate behavior, so they kept it out of our faces?
They think Dairy Queen is a homosexual who milks cows.
Rather than being saluted, Trump is saluting the scouts
Just curious, was that pic taken at Philmont ?
The photo was a year ago at the BSA National Jamboree at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia
I had to look up the official title.
There is a nice Wiki article
Many sanctimonious FReepers hate the BSA and totally overlook the fact that there are many fantastic Americans that owe a lot to having been a scout. Stephen Bechtel is one such person.
Wonder if the increase in transgender delusion is a way to gain attention children need, but often do not get from parents who are absent, or too busy, or on and on?
I agree entirely. There are always girls who envision themselves more comfortable playing sports than playing with dolls, and boys who would rather play the piano than play football. So what? It's a horrible thing to encourage these children to think of themselves as ‘transgender’ when they are just normal kids who aren't smack in the middle of the bell-shaped curve. I went to school with a guy who was into culture etc., and not into sports. He's definitely heterosexual, and married an incredibly beautiful ballerina. These people should just give it a rest.
Thanks for that, bert .. very informative article.
Huge kudos to the Bechtel foundation for their beneficence.
Tho I detest the recent drift of the organization, I’m one of those who’ll always be grateful for having been a Scout.
My wife was a tomboy. As a child, one day she was playing with one of the boy’s in the neighborhood and they went to his house. He asked his mother if she could spend the night. His mother said it’s not propper for girls to spend the night with boys. His response: “Mo’s a girl?!”
Her name is Maureen but everyone called her Mo.
And trust me. She is about the most feminine and female human being I’ve ever met in my adult life. ;)
Last time I saw mention of a transgender was on Forensic Files when this guy raped and killed a teen and a preteen and blamed both the murders on his other self who was a woman.
Absolute degeneracy. The idea is, after we establish a 5 year old can choose their “sexual identity”, then a 5 year old can decide to be sodomized.
This is another abuse of children you can thank Obama for.
Well, there were always tomboys and sissies, but like others have said, most of them grew out of it. Now they are encouraged to call themselves “transgender”, start taking hormones, and probably mess their heads up permanently.
