This is a disheartening trend in the younger generations of America. We must pray that these youth find their identity in Christ. The number of America’s young people identifying as transgender has almost doubled recently, with citizens ages 13 to 25 accounting for a disproportionate number of that population, according to a new study. While only 0.5 percent of all adults identify as transgender, according to the data, 1.4 percent of 13 to 17-year-olds identify as transgender as well as 1.3 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds. Furthermore, while young teenagers represent about 7.6 percent of the total U.S. population, they also made up about 18 percent of transgender-identifying youth. Similarly, the 18- to 24-year-old age cohort makes up about 11 percent of the total U.S. population but represents 24 percent of the total population identifying as transgender.
That sits in stark contrast to the previous iteration of the study, published in 2017, which found only 0.7 percent of both young-adult age groups identifying as transgender, showing transgenderism nearly doubling in commonality. While some pro-gender ideology doctors argue that the increase, at some level, can be attributed to increased social acceptance of the identity, the data also shows the results differentiating state by state, which might suggest a community influence on those who identify as transgender. While some doctors on the left advocate for hormone treatments, puberty blockers, and even genital mutilation surgery as the proper avenues for treating young persons who believe they are transgender, a new study suggests that such methods actually spike the already high likelihood of transgender youth suicide.
