“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” the saying goes. This could come to mind in light of longstanding research showing that the majority of mothers of boys with “gender identity disorder” (GID) are “mentally ill” themselves. It’s yet more evidence that “transgenderism” is not biologically induced, as is the now-fashionable claim, but is a psychological problem stemming from early childhood influences.
What’s more, this, along with other studies showing that “liberal” women are more likely than their conservative sisters to have mental illness, inspired one writer to ask Wednesday, “Does leftist ideology create tangible psychiatric issues?”
Speaking of creation, liberal comedian-cum-commentator Bill Maher himself recently expressed skepticism about the innate-MUSS (Made-up Sexual Status, a.k.a. “transgender”) theory. Pointing out that more than 20 percent of Generation Z now identifies as “LGBTQ,” he asked, “If this spike in trans children is all biological, why is it regional? Either Ohio is shaming them or California is creating them.”
