Taxpayers Are Forking Out $1 Million To Study Transgender 3-Year-Olds


Taxpayers are officially on the hook for a $1 million price tag to student transgender elementary students.

"The first large-scale, national study of transgender children, including some as young as 3, is poised to expand thanks to a five-year, $1 million grant awarded Thursday by the National Science Foundation to the professor leading the project," the Associated Press reports, noting that the long-term study is the first national project to track and observe transgender children.

The study is being headed up by 36-year-old University of Washington psychologist Kristina Olson, who founded the TransYouth Project. The heavily trans-positive initiative identifies transgender kids between three and 12 years old (because kindergarteners are totally qualified to pick their own gender before they stop picking their own nose) and follows them for the next two decades, tracking things like their psychological state and their social interactions.

And now, all that's on your dime.

“The NSF grant will help Olson maintain the study as many of the children go through adolescence; she hopes to continue it into their adulthood,” the AP reports.

The study doesn’t offer any help or financing for gender “transitioning,” and focuses on kids whose voluntary gender-bending has been accepted and encouraged by their parents.

And if you’re combing through your handy dandy pocket Constitution for the provision that reads, “Congress shall provide millions in taxpayer funding to study second-graders’ desire to mutilate their own anatomy,” let me save you some time.

It’s not there.
