It's also common for adopted kids to transition.

Interesting. Are there articles on this?

I just found out there was actually a study (everything I'd seen up to this were articles and Johanna Olson-Kennedy noting that almost all black kids she treats were adopted): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5548409/

There's also an NPR story: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/08/07/488390073/trans-and-adopted-exploring-teen-identity The article claims the phenomenon is due to adopted kids being more comfortable being an "other", which strikes me as really sad and a fucked up justification. As if the solution to adopted kids feeling like they don't belong is to encourage them to double down on it.

It's not because they are used to being an "other!" It's because they spend much more time searching for their place in this world, especially children who have been adopted from another ethnicity. Yes, I have lots of personal experience with this, which is why I post madly on this board. :(

It's years later now, and she is planning her wedding. To a man. This is after she went through her lesbian phase (briefly), and then her "trans" phase.

I wonder if that's because far fewer black parents would be on board with taking their child to a gender clinic and pursuing medical transition.

It wouldn’t surprise me if some of those adoptive parents are at least mentally abusive and have MBP.

Look at the “Hart” family. A pair of evil women abused 5 (6?) black siblings they adopted who were yanked from a loving aunt out of racism and given to a pair of “nice” white lesbians who were all “Rainbow Family!” People were afraid to accuse them of anything out of fear of being seen as bigoted.

Trigger warning; the kids were starved and beaten while being faces for their mom’s publicity and online presence and then one of them drove the entire family off a cliff into the ocean/beach. For a while it was thought one might have escaped because they couldn’t find the body at first. I think one body is still missing but they are presumed dead.

Very likely. When White men transition, they instantly go from the bottom of the leftie social hierarchy to the top. I almost can't blame them for wanting to do it.
