The Growing Transgender Social Contagion
One of the more recent JRE guests is Abigail Shrier – an author, journalist, and writer for the Wall Street Journal. She also wrote a book called “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” which dives into the correlation between rising rates of transgenderism in young American girls and a mental health crisis ripping through the west. Shrier poses the idea that much of the modern transgender culture among particularly teenage girls is more of a “social contagion”.
“Where are all the women in their 40s and 60s coming out as trans? They should be coming out, now is their time, now is their moment. We should see tons of women in their 40s and 60s coming out as transgender and we’re not seeing that. We’re seeing the same population that gets involved in cutting, demonic possession, witchcraft, anorexia, bulimia, and convinces themselves that there’s a problem. Anyway, there’s one last reason: Is that suicide rates are going up.“Abigail Shrier on The Joe Rogan Experience
“Irreversible Damage” describes a dramatically growing rate of teen-aged girls across America who are turning to testosterone, at rates of which are not at all reflective of decades old data showing that approximately 0.1% of people in general will have gender dysphoria [2003, California]. She states that based off a large urbanized study, approximately 2% of high-schoolers are identifying as transgender (as of 2019). Along with this, one other 2018 statistic shows that from 2000-2014, “gender affirming” surgeries have increased by four times.
This same report that saw 2% of high-schoolers identifying as transgender also shows that 35% of said teenagers have attempted suicide within the past year.
Other receipts that Shrier brings to the table will show you that this growing transgender social phenomenon is largely correlated with mental health issues like depression and anxiety, as well as even growing rates of autism. According to the book, teenage girls are the ones most susceptible to this social pressure and are the most affected in 2020:
Parents across the country describe a stressful situation where their daughters with mental health and identity issues are now being convinced that testosterone will solve their issues thanks to transgender influencers and an accommodating status quo.
Changing policy is also encouraging this rogue self diagnosis and self treatment. The state of Oregon is allowing girls as young as 15 years-old to obtain testosterone from Planned Parenthood without parental permission. The American social landscape is changing to accompany and celebrate the idea of “transitioning”, a practice that data shows is both not effective and harmful, even.
Doctors will contact me like we live in the Soviet Union. They will say “oh my god, I can’t talk about this but I really have to let you know what’s going on here, this is crazy. I don’t agree with this diagnosis, and it’s clearly socially influenced…”Abigail Shrier on The Joe Rogan Experience
