Younger Americans identify as ‘transgender’ at nearly 3x the rate of older groups
Transgender self-identifying has exploded in recent years.
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The number of young Americans who claim a transgender identity is nearly triple that of older Americans, a sign of transgender ideology’s continuing popularity among younger cohorts in an era of LGBT ascendence.
Once a poorly understood and little-known faction of the LGBT community, transgenderism has exploded in recent years, with more and more celebrities and average people alike claiming to be some form of gender variant.
A new report by the UCLA School of Law’s Williams Institute shows just comprehensively the ideology has become a part of American culture: a full 1.4 percent of young Americans age 13 to 17 claim a transgender identity. That’s compared to just 0.5 percent of all U.S. adults.
Among all age demographics, 13-to-17-year-olds have the largest share of transgender-identifying individuals in their ranks; only 18-to-24-year-olds come close with 1.3 percent of them identifying as such.
Throughout all states, the Institute found that the District of Columbia has the largest percentage of adults identifying as transgender, with 0.92% of adults there claiming to be transgender.
