“Puberty is not a disease": New longterm studies show kids grow out of gender confusion, suicide is unrelated to gender issues
· Apr 9, 2024 · NottheBee.com

A new study out of the Netherlands following 2,700 kids aged 11 over 15 years, showed that 11% showed gender dysphoria in early adolescence, being uncomfortable with their gender.

But by age 26, the majority of them had outgrown the issue. Only 4% of those experiencing dysphoria at age 11, still had issues with their gender at age 26.

Individuals with an increasing gender non-contentedness more often were female and both an increasing and decreasing trajectory were associated with a lower global self-worth, more behavioral and emotional problems, and a non-heterosexual sexual orientation. Gender non-contentedness, while being relatively common during early adolescence, in general decreases with age and appears to be associated with a poorer self-concept and mental health throughout development.

The authors conclude that gender confusion is most prevalent at around age 11 and then most people grow out of it.

"The results of the current study might help adolescents to realize that it is normal to have some doubts about one's identity and one's gender identity during this age period and that this is also relatively common," Rawee et al concluded.

Watching my daughter start to develop into a woman, it's hard to believe anyone spent time on this study. Puberty introduces all kinds of new responsibilities and play restrictions, especially when it comes to playing with the boys she's grown up with all her life, who are also entering puberty.

It's confusing for a father as well.

Whenever some boy starts talking to my girl, I have all these new instinctual urges to wave around a shotgun, dig a 6-foot hole in my backyard, and make things look like an accident.

On a related note, a different longterm out of Finland study also put to rest the idea that gender dysphoria can lead to suicide.

The study followed 2,083 gender-confused young people under age 23, along with a control of 16,643 young people under age 23.

Of the 55 deaths that occurred in the study population, 20, or 36% were suicides. However, gender dysphoria "does not seem to predict neither all-cause nor suicide mortality in gender-referred adolescents," found researchers Ruuska S-M, Tuisku K, Holttinen T, et al.

The primary predictor of death in gender-dysphoric young people is "psychiatric morbidity," say the researchers. "Medical gender reassignment does not have an impact on suicide risk."

The study directly contradicts Rachel (born Richard) Levine, the transgender assistant secretary for health for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Babylon Bee man of the year's, oft repeated claim:

Gender-affirming care is suicide prevention care.

In fact, Quentin Van Meter, M.D., the former president of the American Pediatrics College, had this to say,

Puberty is not a disease, it is a very important part of life that changes you from an infertile child into a reproductive adult. And puberty blockers should not be used during puberty.

So-called gender dysphoria is entirely in your head, has no biologic basis, and improves and resolves in upwards of 90 to 95% of the children who grow up and who are allowed to go through their natural puberty.

So why on God's green earth would you block that cure of 95% and create a whole new disease child who lives half the half-life of a standard adult in this country, and who is chronically dependent on medication, and who still has the mental health problems, because they were there at the beginning and they haven't been addressed?

My guess is that Quentin Van Meter, M.D., hasn't seen the massive paychecks these gender butchers are pulling down.

On top of that, they get a patient for life: a short life, sure, but years of guaranteed paychecks all the same.

I'll leave you with one further study out of California to show the next person who says denying kids "gender-affirming care" is equivalent to killing them.
