The Alarming Findings of a New Study on Transgender Teens and Suicide

transstudy0918

One in every two transgender adolescents who are born female but identify as male has attempted suicide in the past year, according to a new study.

The study, “Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior,” was published in Pediatrics, the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

It raises serious questions about how families, schools, doctors, government, and the media should grapple with the increasing number of children and teens who self-identify as transgender.

In addition to the alarmingly high rate of suicide attempts among transgender boys, the study reported an attempted-suicide rate of over 40 percent for adolescents who identify as gender nonconforming (neither exclusively male or female) and nearly 30 percent for transgender girls (children and teens who were born male but identify as female).

  1. THE PRESENT SODOM AND GOMORRAH

    Though I am the Light
    you walk in the darkness
    Though I am the Might
    you follow the barkless

    Though I am the Truth
    you prefer the lier’s booth
    Though I am the Way
    you say it’s ok to be gay

    Though I am the Life
    you choose eternal death
    Where weeping and gnashing is rife
    and for sure there won’t be any Meth

    Oh you stubborn generation
    stop this horrific aberration
    You keep flirting with the seducer
    so don’t blame Me, blame the abuser

    Though I am the utter Merciful 
    I’m also the eternal Just
    Your behavior is extremely hurtful
    My patience you finally bust.

    Wake up and smell the coffee or it will be too late.
    Lord, please, hasten Your Coming

  2. I really don’t understand that “gender” transformation. They can cut and change whatever they want, but your DNA never changes, you stay forever the person you were born : you are a masculine or a female for ever and ever.
    STOP AND SIN NO MORE WHILE DOING THIS AND BECAUSE YOU LISTEN TO SATAN AND HIS COHORTS YOU WILL BE JOINING THEM IN HELL AND THEY WILL MOCK YOU FOR ALL ETERNITY !!!

  3. WHY HEAVEN IS CRYING

    Our Lord and His Holy Mother
    are weeping bloody tears
    as their children don’t bother
    to live in perdition gears

    the tears splatter on rocky hearts
    on a demeanor of “who cares”
    as long as we don’t feel the smarts
    we’ll take care of our own affairs

    walking farther and farther away
    spitting and mocking God in His Face
    denying He made us out of the clay
    worshipping gods of the human race

    we think ourselves so enlightened
    we don’t need no Heavenly God
    no more need to be so frightened
    we join gladly the evil one’s squad

    while Heaven is crying
    the devils laugh
    the unrepentant dying
    join the devils’ staff

    The day will come
    that HE will say :
    “enough, enough
    no more rebuff ”

    Then the earthlings
    will cry to no avail
    Joe 6 packs nor Kings
    will escape eternal wail.
