For other children, they don’t begin experiencing issues with their gender until adolescence, and over the last 10 years, there has been a sharp increase in the number of gender clinic referrals for adolescent girls wanting to become boys.

Data: “For other children, they don’t begin experiencing issues with their gender until adolescence, and over the last 10 years, there has been a sharp increase in the number of gender clinic referrals for adolescent girls wanting to become boys.” https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/dont-treat-all-cases-of-gender-dysphoria-the-same-way/article37711831/
 
Supposition: Let’s assume there is male and female, and “masculine” and “feminine” and that these are archetypes or perhaps stereotypes that are socially constructed and perhaps more.
 
Hypothesis: What message might girls have been getting beneath the feminist revolution regarding the value of the feminine?
 
We know that often attempts at messaging to achieve social engineering works in reverse. When you put up anti-suicide billboards suicide rates increase. A message gets received at the conscious level but at an unconscious level value assumptions go in unexpected ways.
 
What if all the valuing of “masculine” traits such as physical strength, competence in physical violence, aggressive relational dominance that are being displayed in “strong female characters” are actually suggesting to young women “wouldn’t BEING male be superior to ACTING masculine?”
 
In other words are all the social engineering messages that are supposed to undo the “patriarchy” actually undermining unconscious confidence of girls to the degree that they want to opt out of the sex?
 
Doesn’t this also have the unintended consequence of continuing to prioritize the masculine over the feminine culturally?
