National Transgender Discrimination Survey (USA)

An analysis of responses to the National Transgender Discrimination Survey (NTDS)  by Ann P. Haas and Philip L. Rodgers of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Jody L. Herman of UCLA Law School’s Williams Institute demonstrates that “transgender respondents who experienced rejection by family and friends, discrimination, victimization, or violence have a higher risk of attempting suicide.”

“This study outlines the potential links between minority stressors and suicidal behavior among transgender and gender non-conforming individuals,” said Herman. “More research is needed, but this is a critical first step in efforts to address the negative mental health impacts of anti-transgender discrimination.”

This study will be used by transgender activists to manipulate liberals into adopting over broad gender identity legislation – because if you don’t support it, you are responsible for people committing suicide.
