Recent research from the Netherlands indicates that most children who struggle with gender identity ultimately no longer experience these feelings once they reach adulthood. This study, which followed more than 2,700 individuals from their preteen years into their mid-twenties, sheds light on the growing popularity of gender transition surgeries for children.

The study, published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, represents one of the most extensive explorations into how children’s gender identities evolve over time.

Over a 15-year period, researchers periodically surveyed participants about their gender feelings, uncovering a notable decline in dissatisfaction with their gender as they grew older.

This research delved into the intricate process of gender identity development from early adolescence to young adulthood.

Initially, around 11% of the children expressed some form of gender discontent.

However, by the age of 25, this percentage had decreased to just 4%, highlighting a significant resolution of these feelings as individuals matured.

As part of the Tracking Adolescents’ Individual Lives Survey (TRAILS), a study involving 2,772 participants aimed to investigate the complexities of gender dissatisfaction, defined as unhappiness with the gender assigned at birth, and its association with self-perception, mental well-being, and eventual sexual orientation.

The research uncovered three distinct paths of development: the majority (78%) experienced no gender dissatisfaction, 19% saw a decrease in these feelings over time, and a small subset (2%) exhibited an increase.

Notably, gender dissatisfaction was more prevalent among females and was connected to lower overall self-esteem, increased emotional and behavioral challenges, and a non-heterosexual sexual orientation.

The decrease in gender dissatisfaction highlighted by the study has significant implications for ongoing discussions about transgender children and the growing trend towards medical interventions.

This evidence underscores the need for a more careful consideration of gender transition surgeries for children and teenagers, emphasizing the importance of implementing stricter guidelines to limit medical interventions for minors.

This research comes at a critical juncture, coinciding with a notable rise in transgender children in the United States receiving medications and undergoing surgical procedures to transition their gender.

Patrick Brown, associated with the conservative Ethics and Public Policy Center, told the TheDailyMail, “This study provides even more reason to be skeptical towards aggressive steps to facilitate gender transition in childhood and adolescence.”

“The fact that rates of satisfaction are lower even just a few years later suggests that for the vast majority of people, prudence and caution, rather than a rush towards permanent surgeries or hormone therapies, will be the best approach for teenagers struggling to make sense of the world and their place in it.”

Brown explained, “As such, policies that prohibit gender transition for minors make a great deal of sense.”

“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 study explained.

“As anyone who has ever been a teenager knows, puberty and its aftereffects can be a confusing time of hormonal surges, physical changes, and social insecurity,” Brown continued. “It isn’t surprising that the highest rates of being dissatisfied in one’s body would peak during this time.”

Notice that the study was from the Netherlands. I submit that the US is too politically correct to have allowed such a study. Moreover, I submit that the US is too politically correct to act on the study and will ignore it, much like how those in Europe were banning the Covid vaccine for young men because of the higher incidence of myocarditis, the US and Fauci ignored the science and continued to allow young men to get the vaccine. In the US, science is more of a cult religion than...........well.............accepted science.

If you wanted to actually discuss the study then why did your OP provide no link to it?
 
Seems intuitive to me.

Men are going to be eventually dissatisfied if they have their penises amputated because they are told it will make them a woman.
 
Democrats are god, they decide who lives and die, by abortion. And if one manages to slip through abortions, democrats determine if they are a boy or girl.

The Democrats are out to destroy everything, except for the rich democrats and powerful democrat politicians.
