RE: Totally not a social contagion. 10% of all kids in the school district are trans/nb.
I presumed it to be upper middle class white kids. Well, these figures alarm me:
The prevalence was over 14% among Hispanic teens, and 10% among Black students, ompared with 7% of their white peers.
Why is this spreading among Hispanics? They are the most conservative of all. 10% of Black students? And here I thought Black women were not having this insanity.
It makes sense that an ideology with deep roots in traditional gender roles would get popular among youth raised in a culture that already reinforces traditional gender roles. For gay kids in those communities, they might be coping with homophobia by trying to change sex.
All the more important to have solid LGB resources and outreach. LGB. Not T.
Latching their T onto LGB has been nothing but harmful.
At my previous site, I didn't see the black girls or asian girls or the white girls doing anything quite like this. I asked my colleagues about it - pre-TRA craziness - and there was some speculation about a response to sexual abuse.
Wow, that was shocking and sad. I've often heard there is a lot of violence and sexual violence in many Hispanic homes. There is everywhere, not just Hispanic homes, but if the area is majority Hispanic, then the victims will also be majority Hispanic.
A huge investigation needs to be launched into this. Is a rise in sexual abuse behind the TIF craze? It has to be. Of course, this abuse has always gone on, but clearly the Gender Lobby is preying on the victims now.
