Definitely something, and this time it’s no joke. Satan is mightily using social media as a mass hysteria tool to turn young people’s minds further from the created ideal than ever before. Transgender ideology has a grip on many people, especially teenagers. The sudden rapid increase in young people feeling they were ‘born in the wrong body’ is alarming. Fortunately the British Government has recently abandoned plans to make it far quicker and easier to change legal sex in England and Wales, as there is clear evidence of mere copycat behaviour, (rather than genuine cases) disproportionately spreading the craze through peer groups, as is common with any teenage craze. As always, ever since teenage culture first emerged as a definable demographic social segment in the early 1950’s, but now more than ever, young people are being unwittingly manipulated by older and cleverer operators than themselves, who exploit them for votes and hard cash. We must warn them. But how and why does this happen? What are the ingredients and mechanics of a craze, and why is transgenderism more harmful than green hair, tattoos or drugs, and symptomatic of a deeper and more dangerous sickness? And what is the cure?
Two excellent briefings published by The Christian Institute form part of the answer and are downloadable as handy pdfs below:
‘Social Contagion’ looks at how beliefs, feelings and behaviours can spread rapidly from person to person:

‘The Transgender Craze’ then shows how ‘social contagion’ can help us understand the surge in transgenderism among young people:
