Study: Testosterone in Total Freefall, May Account for Explosion in Transgenderism

Study: Testosterone in Total Freefall, May Account for Explosion in Transgenderism. By Ben Bartee.

“About 42,000 U.S. children ages 6 to 17 were diagnosed with gender dysphoria in 2021, nearly triple the number in 2017,” Reuters reports. …

Many cultural critics and behavioral scientists have postulated that there is a notable “social contagion” element to the trend — in which children are conditioned through public school indoctrination and social/corporate media to assume “transgender” identities for greater social status. Certainly, there is extensive evidence to back up this theory, especially for girls who are more sensitive to social pressures. …

But the parallel physiological drop-off in sperm counts and testosterone levels, which effectively feminizes boys and men, is also likely an underappreciated angle and arguably even more important than social conditioning.

Eminent researcher Dr. Shanna Swan explains her findings from a recent study:


… Her previous research, published in 2017, which went largely ignored by the mainstream Public Health™ establishment, found a 1.16% annual decline in sperm counts (a common and accurate proxy for testosterone levels) population-wide from 1972 to the turn of the century. In its own right, that 2017 study indicated nothing short of an actual public health disaster, unlike the mild flu-like coronavirus that the Public Health™ technocrats used to bring the global economy to its knees. ….

A cocktail of environmental factors — like bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates, and other chemicals commonly found in consumer products — drives these declines. There are immediately obvious and easily instituted practical public policy solutions to the problem.
