Brown University Backs Away From Study Indicating Peer Pressure May Cause Teens to Identify as Trans


Unless you haven’t noticed until now, let me tell you something very, very significant about the transgender acceptance movement in the West:

They don’t just want rights for those suffering from gender dysphoria.

They want everyone to be transgender.

Case and point: a scholar at Brown University recently conducted a study that indicated teens often begin to identify as transgender once one or more members of their peer group “come out” as transgender.

This is a significant–while not very surprising–discovery…one that transgender activists clearly do not want the world to know about.

The Daily Wire reports:

After a complaint was launched, reportedly by trans activists, Brown University suddenly withdrew a press release touting a research study from its own researcher about children who experienced “rapid-onset gender dysphoria” for the first time when they were hanging around one or more friends who had become gender dysphoric and were transgender-identified.

When the study was originally released, they tweeted out a link to the author’s article, which has since been removed:

But it wasn’t long before activists were triggered, and pressured the university to remove the article from its website:

The abstract for the paper, which was praised in the medical community, was as follows:

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.

On Twitter, you can’t hide from a deleted tweet, and Brown was called out for their cowardly actions:
