You can’t even correctly name the study’s author. Jeez.
Three quarters of her cohort were taken from sites that catered to parents who already considered ‘social contagion’ a factor. 🤦♀️
‘Trans ideology’ is a dog whistle and a chimera. It’s you who’s revealing much about their ideological presuppositional biases.
Littman’s ‘study’ has been widely dismissed in peer review. PLOS One reviewed, amended, corrected, and contextualised the ‘findings’ into a nothing.
By Littman’s own admission ROGD is not a mental health diagnosis.
At best her ‘study’ is a vox pops taken from a self-selected cohort with a bias in favour of the author’s presupposed conclusion (the study was named ROGD from the get-go and Littman specifically sought confirmation of social contagion as a factor. That’s the very definition of unscientific)

Here’s one. Greater awareness. And the attendant expectation of greater acceptance (which clearly is a joke, as long as people like you are suffered to exist). Transgender people existed when I was young. I KNOW because I was one of them. I didn’t come out until I was 48.
So good of you cis folk to try to explain our lived experience to us without ever asking us. Patronising chimp. Take Lisa with you when you leave.
