The gender identity crowd is going to become unhinged over this study. They like to think that there is nothing wrong with a child identifying as the opposite gender, and feel society needs to change to accommodate them. Well, it appears it’s more than has to accommodate, as the study shows we need to worry about their mental well being. The study shows that almost 80% of gender confused are also suffering from other mental illnesses.
“Researchers affiliated with the Boston University School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School, and University of Michigan School of Public Health, conducted the expansive study, published at the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
The study, which included more than 1,200 college students with gender identity issues across 71 U.S. college campuses, found that, across commonly used mental health measures, 78 percent of the gender-disturbed students met the criteria for one or more of the outcomes of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self-injury, and suicidality.”
“Across all the mental health measures used, the gender-disturbed students had a significantly higher prevalence of mental health issues than students comfortable with their biological sex.”
“Results of the study showed more than half of gender-disturbed students were found to screen positively for depression (58%) and reported self-injurious behavior (53%), while 28% of students comfortable with their biological sex screened positive for depression and 20% reported self-injurious behavior.
In addition, more than one-third of gender-disturbed students reported serious suicidal ideation within the past year compared to just one in ten students comfortable with their biological sex.
The researchers draw the conclusion that their results demonstrate “an urgent need” to address the mental health issues of gender-disturbed students and “prioritize” their needs.”
So if you thought that there was something wrong with people that are suddenly changing gender, according to this study you were right. But will the gender-confused accept that their lifestyle is directly related to mental illness or complain that the study is somehow biased?
