Studies have suggested that the number of young people who identify as transgender has exploded in recent years. While activists claim that these people are just discovering a latent truth suppressed by society, some scientists have set out to question what lies behind a phenomenon they term “rapid-onset gender dysphoria.”

Sapir joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to break down what ROGD is, why some activist scientists have failed to disprove it, and what he and Littman have done to advance the theory.
