Being Trans Is Just a Phase - NOT

A New Study Does Not Show "Being Trans Is Just A Phase"

Last month, the Daily Mail (the British tabloid with world-wide circulation) reported that a new "landmark study" from the Netherlands concluded that being transgender was "just a phase" and that most children "grow out of it." News of the study was widely reported on Twitter by conservative accounts, with tweets about the Daily Mail’s reporting of the study garnering tens of millions of views. 

Unfortunately, the headline fails a fact check: the study was not about transgender individuals, but rather on people who sometimes express dissatisfaction with their sex for a variety of reasons entirely unrelated to being transgender.

Follow this link to see what a FACT CHECK has to say about the study and the way it has been highlighted in The Daily News and beyond:
