CWN Editor's Note: A 15-year study of 2,772 individuals, conducted by researchers at the University of Groningen, found that 11% of 11-year-olds had transgender inclinations—but that only 4% did at the age of 26.

“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 researchers stated.

    SO, now the battle to suppress the science by trans activists who claim this will (check the script) incite violence, genocide of trans kids, bigotry, something-phobia. I find it amusing in one sense that many of the people who try to suppress science that reveals the aforementioned, steroid hormone-based contraceptive drugs damage womens health, alternate lifestyles are more assoicated with suicidal ideation...were previously demanding we "believe the science".
