96% of transgender youth engage in self-harm: study

96% of transgender youth engage in self-harm: study, by Frank Hodges.

The pro-gay “Stonewall” school report for Scotland with the University of Cambridge shows 96 percent of the country’s transgender youth engage in self-destructive behavior, including cutting themselves. The report also found “incredibly high levels” of mental health issues in transgenders.

“School Report Scotland” surveyed more than 400 LGBTQI Scottish students. The survey focused on bullying and name-calling but also revealed suicide attempts, depression, anxiety, and self-harm.

Besides 96 percent of trans students attempting self-harm, 60 percent of homosexuals also self-harm, the survey found.

While 40 percent of Scottish trans pupils have tried to commit suicide, a quarter of homosexuals have, too. …

Cause and effect??

The gay Stonewall group suggested that more explicit, homosexuality-focused sex education is the solution to curb the “alarming” experiences of trans and gay students.

[Former transgender Walt Heyer of Sex Change Regret] countered Stonewall’s argument that bullying and social rejection are the cause of transgender self-harm and suicide.

“It is false and misleading to say ‘bullying’ is causing 40 percent of trans people to attempt suicide,” he told LifeSiteNews. “People who are emotionally, socially and psychologically mentally fit do not attempt suicide, yet 40 percent of transgender persons do attempt suicide. It’s because they have serious mental disorders.” ..

Heyer pointed out that 90 percent of attempted suicides are a result of mental illness. He cited a major study that found “at least 62.7 percent of individuals who identify as transgender are in a fact suffering psychiatric mental disorders.”

Politicians and the mainstream media only add to the problem by “glamorizing transgenders like Bruce Jenner, in his psychological turmoil,” Heyer said. They “do a great disservice to transgender people and to those who treat them by denying them a safe environment in which to tackle the deeper issues of comorbid disorders and suicide.”

I cannot help feeling that in a few decades people will look back on this time with alarm and amazement.
