It just demonstrates that young people are being exposed to topics before they are quite ready for them. The Internet. That's all.

The horrible assumptions and baggage going into that phase of life, brief as it may be; is quite formative.

I really think it's oversimplifying and inaccurate to boil all this down to "the internet". Transing gays has been going on since the beginning of recorded history. It's just that now we have brutal surgeries and hormone treatments to make them pass better so they can fully assimilate into heterosexual society. The curious part is how heterosexuals are now being involved. But thankfully, that addition is causing outrage among heterosexuals.
