Yes, this is happening to gay kids

Jordan Peterson writes:

But the radical types’ notion of gender is completely empty. “Gender is what you feel”. OK, what do you mean by “feel”? “I feel like I’m a man.” Well, how do you know, because you aren’t. Do you always feel that? “Well, sometimes I do, and sometimes I don’t. So I’m fluid.” It’s so juvenile and narcissistic that it’s almost impossible to exaggerate.
There’s a lot of confused people, and there’s certainly a lot of confused adolescents who could be enticed into narcissistic abnormality as a consequence of attention-seeking. No problem, man. Ten per cent of adolescents will line up for that, especially girls because they’re prone to psychogenic epidemics. But what’s happening now is that gay kids are being convinced they’re transsexual. Well that’s not so good for gay people, is it?
I’ve had people come to me who have uncertainty about their sexual identities. The right way to handle that therapeutically is to say, “OK, I don’t know what the hell is best for you, and clearly you don’t either because you’re confused. So let’s evaluate the whole range of possibilities before we do anything precipitous, let alone surgical.” It’s like sacrificing children to Moloch. It’s horrible, what’s happening.

    It would be helpful if those who insist that gay kids are “being convinced they are transexual” (presumably by the thousands, tens of thousands, or perhaps hundreds of thousands) would provide empirical evidence. At this point, we have a lot of noise but it smacks of the kind of smash-talk that we used to hear about gays “recruiting” children. Lots of fear, no facts.

      Stephen believes in Kellyanne Conway’s ‘alternative facts’.

      Yeah, but that won’t stop him.

      Kareem Abdul-Jabbar nailed him recently: “Much of Peterson’s fame and infamy is the result of YouTube debates he does with other YouTubers, mostly with people that agree with him. On those occasions when he debates people who don’t agree with him, his tactic is similar to Ben Shapiro’s: name-drop famous writers and thinkers, keep changing the subject so he never has to fully defend his position, throw out irrelevant facts and studies so he sounds smart. You would be hard-pressed to know what Peterson’s thesis is during a debate.”

      Peterson, like Milo Yiannopoulos, has built his fan base with outrageous commentary, who suck it up because they are as superficial and intellectually lazy as he is.
