Study: More Than Half of Trans Male Teens Attempt Suicide

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: 51% of male and 30% of female transexual teens have attempted suicide. They have attempted to take their own life and you have some states saying Christians cannot help them with their lifestyle decision? These kids need help, they need Jesus Christ in their heart. They are confused and need direction.

A new study from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows an alarmingly high rate of suicide attempts among transgender teens, particularly trans boys.

Nearly 14 percent of all adolescents in the study, “Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior,” based on data from “Profiles of Student Life: Attitudes and Behaviors” survey from the Search Institute, reported they had attempted suicide. But 51 percent of transgender males reported at least one attempt, the highest percentage of any gender identity group. The second highest was among nonbinary teens, nearly 42 percent.

Among transgender females, about 30 percent reported a suicide attempt. The rate was 28 percent for questioning teens, nearly 18 percent for cisgender females, and 10 percent for cisgender males. Data came from more than 120,000 adolescents, age 11 to 19, over three years, June 2012 to May 2015.

  1. Any time chemicals are put into a flesh body there is adverse side effects. We read studies about over the counter gastic meds, such as ranitidine, foamotidin, & cimetidine causing depression. Of course, artificial hormones will do the same thing.
    I often wonder how much is related to peer pressure. Certainly, the UN with their declaration about fluid sex is not helping. Anything to cover up the truth.
    Matthew 17:17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to Me.
    We plant seeds, but they do not know where to find their comfort.

    • Good point.

      Then we have the greatest untested experiment in human history according to many scientists called, GMO (genetically modified organism). No one knows exactly what it could be doing to our bodies, though some evidence suggests it is not good.

      • My daughter told me about her friend that studied biochemical engineering to later be employed by a company developing GMO seed crops. Lucrative employment for her financial, but she said herself “I helped development them, but will never eat any food with them in.” That should tell us about safety.
        Thanks, Brandon
