"Sweden’s Board of Health and Welfare confirmed a 1,500% rise between 2008 and 2018 in gender dysphoria diagnoses among 13- to 17-year-olds born as girls."

Two words: social contagion…
The above is a tweet I deleted a while back because people were attempting to cancel me for it. It is oversimplified. Social contagion is one plausible explanation, among others, for the dramatic rise in youths claiming to be gender dysphoric.
I regret originally caving to the mob's attempt to cancel me for it. So here it is again. The tweet isn't perfect, but I don't care.

We need to be allowed to tweet imperfections without worrying we'll lose our jobs.
If this tweet had originally said "Two words: greater acceptance" it would have been viewed so favorably yet it would have been equally overly simplistic.

We can't have different rules for different conclusions. This is how you steer science of a cliff.
