I came across this tweet from RoosterFJB the other day. I can't find it today, which leads me to suspect it may have been deleted: but fortunately I'd already saved a screenshot.
Absolutely true, IMHO, based on decades of experience in most of sub-Saharan Africa, and two-and-a-half decades in the USA since then. Transgenderism is not, repeat, NOT a major worldwide problem. It's only a big problem in this country, where demented dunderheaded progressive liberals have brainwashed themselves - and the poor children under their care - into believing that it's a thing. There are, indeed, true transgendered individuals (the phenomenon known as intersex - see one such person's story here; it's very interesting reading), but they're a tiny minority (usually calculated as less than one-tenth of one per cent of the population).
Also, let's not forget that much of the pressure to have kids think they're transsexual is nothing more or less than sexual predation by others. As Divemedic points out:
The formative years from about 9 to 12 or so is when children form their sense of who they will become. It would be easy for a manipulative adult to convince a child that his deep friendship for his same sex best friend is really some sort of homosexual attraction of a more erotic nature, rather than of a developmental nature.
Children who are emotionally, sexually, and mentally abused or those who receive emotional trauma during these formative years are those who go on to experience mental health issues as adults. This is why allowing teachers to push these alternative roles upon children in the age groups from Kindergarten through seventh grade is so damaging to children.
This is also why there are teachers who are fighting so hard for access to children in this age group. It is access to young children that allows them to build the next generation of adults with misaligned emotional and psychological compasses.
There's more at the link. I entirely agree with him.
Basically, in most cases, one can be fairly sure that the individual wondering whether they are, or claiming to be, transgendered is nothing of the sort. The few genuine cases (I know three such individuals personally) have to cope with a burden I'd hate to carry, and I can only salute their courage and determination.
