Transgender utopia requires fake science to justify it, and your tax payments are going to provide that.
Whenever one asks how me how I can disbelieve what scientists say about evolution or man-made global warming, I need only point out that the same fake science industry has been used to propagandize for same-sex couples being as healthy for raising children as married couples and that “transgender” children should be chemically castrated. If “scholars” are willing to push something so hateful onto children, then nothing is impossible for them.
The Federalist reports, “Feds Send $1 Million To Study Designed To Push Transgenderism On Children.”
We’ve written about the $5.7 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) study, designed to justify chemically sterilizing children who suffer from gender confusion or dysphoria. Now the Associated Press reports that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has made a $1 million grant for a longitudinal study of gender-confused children. Unfortunately, the circumstances surrounding the NSF-funded study suggest that it, too, is designed to reach conclusions more political than scientific.
The study is called the TransYouth Project (TYP). Designed by Dr. Kristina Olson, a psychology professor at the University of Washington, the study will follow several hundred transgender children whose parents “affirm” their gender dysphoria—that is, who let the children impersonate members of the opposite sex in appearance, name, pronoun usage, etc. Participants ranged from age 3 to age 12 at the inception of the study in 2013 and will be followed for 20 years.
The writer starts listing “red flags” about the TYP. The first one is that the lead “researcher” is an open advocate for Transgender orthodoxy.
The first red flag concerning TYP is the orientation of the lead researcher, Olson, who is firmly on the side of affirming the child’s mistaken gender identity. In an article for the Los Angeles Times, Olson wrote about a child named John who used to have a girl’s name because, as Olson puts it, “when John was born his parents and his doctors said he was a girl.”
This is another version of the “sex assigned at birth” trope, which denies the biological reality of chromosomes and reproductive organs. “John’s” parents and doctor said the baby was a girl because the baby was a girl.
In the same article, Olson wrote disdainfully of clinics that “counsel families to ‘guide’ children to become satisfied with their biological sex.” She clearly disagrees with medical professionals who think it’s better for a child to develop satisfaction with reality rather than spend a lifetime at war with his or her own body.
