Thank God The GOP is in Charge
- More money pissed down a government shit-hole. Just imagine the insanity if the "Conservative" GOP was not in charge.
- Call me a "Crazy Blogger", which I am, but does ANYONE in the Big Government loving Republican Party actually give a crap about anything?
(Washington Free Beacon) - The National Science Foundation is expanding a study of transgender children as young as three years old, giving the project's researcher an additional $1 million.
Kristina Olson, a researcher at the University of Washington, received the 2018 Alan T. Waterman Award, the nation's "highest honor for a young scientist or engineer," for her work studying the gender identities of toddlers.
Olson's TransYouth Project is not just interested in transgender children, but "intersex children," "non-binary children," "princess boys," "pink boys," and more.
"Olson is recognized for her innovative contributions to understanding children's attitudes toward and identification with social groups, early prosocial behavior, the development of notions of fairness, morality, inequality and the emergence of social biases," the National Science Foundation said in a statement announcing the award.
Olson is most well known for her gender studies, which has already received over $600,000 from the taxpayers. The Waterman award, which was announced last week, will give Olson an additional $1 million over five years.
"In addition to transgender children, we are recruiting intersex children, gender nonconforming children, tomboys, princess boys, pink boys, non-binary children, gender creative kids—you name it!" according to the project's website. "If you have a child who is under 18 and fits in one of these (or a related) category and are interested in learning more about our work or signing up, please complete the contact form."
The $1 million in new funding will go towards expanding the TransYouth project, as well as starting a mentorship program for "LGBTQ students, students of color, first-generation college students, and those from small colleges with fewer resources for research."Read More . . . .
