Brown U. pulls 'gender dysphoria' study, worried that findings might 'invalidate the perspectives' of transgender community

Interestingly enough, a study that was supposed to prove that being exposed to transgender media doesn't change your perspective on your sexuality
proved just the opposite. Now the study results are being removed.

“In on-line forums, parents have been reporting that their children are experiencing what is described here as ‘rapid-onset gender dysphoria,' appearing for the first time during puberty or even after its completion,” said Lisa Littman, an assistant professor in behavioral sciences at Brown and author of the study.


“The onset of gender dysphoria seemed to occur in the context of belonging to a peer group where one, multiple, or even all of the friends have become gender dysphoric and transgender-identified during the same timeframe,” she added.
The study was based on surveys by 256 sets of parents. The findings were... almost unanimous.
