I'm in a state of disbelief Sup Forums.
My little brother (aged 11) recently announced that he "has always felt like he's a girl" out of nowhere. This came to a complete shock to me as:
He's never acted feminine in any visible way before.
My parents are very traditional and have never forced any feminine behavior upon him
I refused to believe that this was the result of improper upbringing. Myself and my other siblings are completely normal (attracted to the opposite sex and adhering to traditional gender identity and norms).
When he was away at a friend's house, I decided to check his browser history to see if anything online caused this
I see a number of videos from transgender YouTubers
I see the "#ProudtoBe" video promoted by YouTube (below)
I also ask one of my sisters (aged 13) what his school has taught about transgenderism, since I attended a different school when I was his age.
Transgenderism is now taught as a legitimate part of Sex Ed.
There are at least 25-30 kids in his grade (about 200 students total) who are transgender or gay or some other special snowflake identity
school administration cracks down on any anti-LGBT sentiment from students
His thoughts did not originate from my family - the idea that transgenderism is anything but a mental illness was imprinted by the media and educational system
My parents refuse to accept my little brothers 'announcement', so at least he should be spared destructive hormone treatment and "sex change" operations in the medium term. However, my brother remains adamant in his conviction that he is really a girl and he is currently unmovable on this front. I'm terrified that the left has brainwashed him.
The left is evil Sup Forums. They now prey on children when their hormones are acting up, confusing them, and encouraging them to adopt damaging behavior. We need a ban on LGBT propaganda like Russia has. Free Speech can be damned.
I want my little brother back.
