Study: More children joining this new civil right

I am Jazz propagandaA 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.

The push for acceptance of transgender people can be traced in part to vocal homosexual activists who demand "tolerance" and denounce "transphobia" from the public, even to the point of debating biology and chromosomes, and stating that people are "assigned" their sex at birth.

The media is all-in on the transgender band wagon, too, such as a Huffington Post story praising four "transgender-themed" TV shows, and a compliant mainstream media that could face accusations of media defamation for failing to follow the new rules.

Despite the Trump administration rescinding the Obama-era directive ordering schools to support transgender policies, Cretella says schools still factor into this trend, too.

"If you stand against the transgender politics, schools are still scared," she says. "They are still worried that they will lose money, that they will be sued by families with gender-confused kids, and it gets propagated that way."
