Study Reveals Americans Embrace Scientific Consensus on Number of Genders

The alphabet mafia, the left, and other groups have been able to use Pride Month as an excuse to put rainbow flags on everything. They also insist that there are as many genders as possible as their muddled minds can think of. A new study shows, however, that the majority of Americans do not buy what alphabet people are selling. Public Religion Research Institute, a non-profit organization, surveyed 5,046 adults from all 50 US states between March 9 and 23 about their belief that there are only two genders. The results from this year’s study were compared with data from 2021. The results indicate that the militant transgender movement’s ideas are out of touch with the majority of Americans.

In general, 65 percent of respondents said that they believed there were only two types of genders. This is up six percent since 2021. A further 15 percent also said that they believe in only two genders but have no strong feelings about this. When the poll was broken down into age groups, it became more interesting. Gen Z, those born between 1995 and 2012, was the group most likely to be opposed to the idea of only two genders. However, that number rose from 43 percent to 57 percent by 2021. The Millennials (those who were born between 1980-1994), grew nine percentage points from 2021 to reach 60 percent. Not surprisingly, older Americans such as Baby Boomers (1946-1964), and older (1925-1945), were most likely to think there are only two types of genders.

The survey was also divided by race. Two-thirds of white and Hispanic Americans believe that there are only two genders. Black Americans, with 70 percent, were the group that believed there are only two genders. Asian Americans also said this at 53 percent. The education of Americans also influenced their views on the binary gender system. The higher-educated Americans included science and biology in their education. Those with college degrees agreed that gender was binary at 58 percent, while post-graduates at 53 percent, although the idea that there are more than two genders increased in both groups. Faith and religion were also factors, as might be expected. The majority of Christians, across denominations, believe that gender is binary. However, Jewish Americans, who are largely unchanged between 2021 and 2023, still hold this belief.

It is not surprising that beliefs are shared by all political parties. 90 percent of Republicans believe there are two genders. 66 percent are independents and 44 percent are Democrats. These percentage points increased in all three categories. The Republicans’ number rose by three percent, while independents and Democrats both saw their numbers rise by six percent. One category that is not surprising is those who are transgender or know someone who has been transgender. Only 40 percent of respondents believe gender is binary. The media tends to focus more on parents who help their children transition from their biological gender, but parents polled supported only two genders with 70 percent. Non-parents had a slightly lower support of 64 percent.

The most interesting finding of the survey was that 43 percent of respondents believed that peer pressure is causing young people to identify as transgender. The majority of respondents (55%) disagreed, but there is some evidence that children are under pressure to transition. In a study published in April, 51.8% of parents who took their child to see a transgender specialist or clinic said that they felt pressured either socially or by medical professionals to transition their child. Could the idea behind Pride Month include making more Americans think that this is normal? The more outrageous the behavior that young children see, the more likely they are to think it’s a celebration of freedom, equality, and love.

Since 2020, the left has told Americans that they should “follow the science” and it appears that this is what Americans do.
