Exposing The Social Media-Gender Dysphoria Connection

Boy with hands on head
This summer, detransitioner Chloe Cole made waves in the nation’s capital when she testified to Congress that medical treatments to change the gender of confused children are horrific. The 19-year-old activist said the drugs and surgeries that changed her body led her to become suicidal for the first time. Cole says it was social media that introduced her to the idea that she could be a boy at the age of 11. Her story is all too common with transgender children.
Research shows that the majority of those who transition were persuaded to do so through social media and that a correlation exists specifically between the spike in teens using social media and identifying as transgender.
 
The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration’s evidence-based studies exposed the influence of social media platforms on gender dysphoria, particularly the rapid onset gender dysphoria among children.  Their research concluded these points:
  • Adolescents who have no history of displaying typical gender dysphoria characteristics go through a sudden change in identity following intense exposure to peers and/or media that heavily promotes transsexual lifestyles.
  • Considering that social media is rife with individuals promoting gender-affirmative drugs and surgeries, children are making self-assessments based on feelings they may not understand and believing they require treatments that can lead to deep regret in the future.
  • This has led to Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD). The majority of cases appear to occur within a cluster of peers and in association with increased social media use, especially among people with autism or other neurodevelopmental or mental health issues.
FIGHTING THE TRANSGENDER AGENDA IN SCHOOLS
 
The push to pressure children to transition is not just coming from social media.  There’s a rising problem in schools with teachers and other staff members secretly encouraging children to transition, sometimes under school programs, unbeknownst to the parents. However, with more incidents of schools encouraging children to transition, the blowback is mounting. Parents, along with Republican leaders in multiple state are taking a stand and fighting back against these radical and sinister programs forcing the trans-agenda on vulnerable children in the education system.
 
  • Virginia mom, Michelle Blair, recently filed a lawsuit against a school board in Baltimore claiming that the staff kept her daughter, Sage’s, transition to male a secret before the teen was reportedly kidnapped, raped, and trafficked across state lines.
  • This month California mom, Jessica Konen, and her daughter, Alicia, were awarded $100,000 after claiming teachers and staff at Buena Vista Middle School in Salinas coached the 11-year-old to socially transition to a male gender identity.  
  • Earlier this year, 21 Republican-led states took legal action on behalf of Florida parents who sued their daughter’s school after teachers launched a transgender support plan for their 13-year-old. January Littlejohn said school bosses had spoken to her daughter about changing her name and which bathroom she uses without her parental permission. Gov. Ron DeSantis highlighted this case to help pass his parental rights bill that bans teachers from giving classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity in kindergarten through the twelfth grade.
