A Brown University Researcher Released A Study About Teens Imitating Their Peers By Turning Trans. The Left Went Insane. So Brown Caved.
This week, Brown University pulled down a news story on a study conducted by a Brown University researcher. That study focused in on what it described as "rapid-onset gender dysphoria": gender dysphoria that was not present in early youth, but that manifested within days or weeks in teens and young adults. The study author, Lisa Littman, assistant professor of the practice of behavioral and social sciences at Brown’s School of Public Health,

stated, "This kind of descriptive study is important because it defines a group and raises questions for more research. One of the main conclusions is that more research needs to be done. Descriptive studies aren’t randomized controlled trials ‐ you can’t tell cause and effect, and you can’t tell prevalence. It’s going to take more studies to bring in more information, but this is a start."
Littman did talk to 250 parents of children who suffered from rapid-onset gender dysphoria.
...This suggests that the drive to transition expressed by these teens and young adults could be a harmful coping mechanism like drugs, alcohol or cutting, Littman said.
...In any case, this Brown University study could not stand ‐ any effort to actually research the environmental component of transgenderism is met with raucous calls for censorship. And Brown immediately caved. The University pulled down a news article about the study. Realistically, Brown and the journal in which the original comment was published, PLOS ONE,
PLOS ONE once published a creationist article: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0146193
turned against the study because it offended politically correct sensibilities about transgenderism.
Things like this been going on for years - that's why Academia, including the putative "Sciences" is such a cesspit of unimaginative second raters and outright fakers
