A collection of stereotypes of male and female behaviour. Which happens to be for 99% accurate. Since less than 1% of US is population does identify with the gender they are born with.
I don't know about that. There's a heavy age skew to that data, with younger people being significantly more likely to identify themselves as trans in some way. There's also an interesting skew in terms of sex. Apparently 73% of trans-identified people overall are biologically male, while about 70% of trans-identified youth are biologically female, and more specifically would otherwise identify themselves as bisexual or lesbian in terms of orientation. These types of statistical skews hint at the superficiality of gender identity as a concept in my mind, and at minimum merit further scientific investigation, I believe.
Bottom line: I think the popularization of transgender politics of late is mainly owed to social media, that it is a growing trend that will increasingly affect public policy going forward, and that more and more people are going to identify themselves in these sorts of ways as this trend continues. Don't bet on that statistic remaining the same for long.Last edited by Jaicee - on 02 June 2019
