First, the young people were asked, “Are you male or female?” and, subsequent to that question, they were asked:
A person’s appearance, style, dress, or the way they walk or talk may affect how people describe them. How do you think other people at school would describe you?

Very feminine
Mostly feminine
Equally feminine & masculine
Mostly masculine
Very masculine

The authors categorized male participants who said others describe them as “very feminine” or “mostly feminine,” and female respondents who said others describe them as “very masculine” or “mostly masculine” as “highly gender nonconforming,” while those youth who responded “equally feminine and masculine” were categorized as “androgynous.”

Those young people categorized as “highly gender nonconforming” numbered 59, while 331 were placed in the “androgynous” category. Of the youth participants in the study, 1,204 were in the “gender conforming” category, i.e., those who are comfortable with their biological sex.

UCLA used to be a credible institution of higher learning.

That study is taking advantage of the low self esteem / high regard of other's opinions that most teenagers have. The way the study interpreted their answers is ridiculous.

I'm gonna bet that the girls who labeled themselves one of the 2 masculine categories did it because they aren't a prissy girl who acts super feminine and wears tons of makeup. That makes them a very normal teenage girl. Typical teenager overreaction. Same goes for guys - some are still frail and don't act all bro-like, and view themselves overly negatively because someone made fun of them once, so they think they must be viewed by others as "kinda feminine".

Typical provactive study written mainly to get attention / funding.

I agree with goat. Stupid study of middle schoolers whom anyone withhf an education knows are the most self-conscious, insecure, tragically shy kids who ever declined to take a position on anything. Toss a politically charged undefined question at any of them and this is the result

Like I said before, I like liquid such as a good beer, especially Guinness, and it gives me gas, so I guess I am fluid gender.

Yes and they would be part of the 3.7% that labeled themselves (what the study calls) highly gender nonconforming.

The other 23% of that bullshit headline is attributed to kids responded equally feminine and masculine. In other words they aren't particularly trying to be masculine or feminine and do see themselves as coming off that way. For a 14 or 16 year old, this is not equivalent to questioning or having issues with your gender. It's actually pretty normal. Especially in the case of girls, even if they do make an effort to be pretty and are obviously feminine - when they are at that awkward age about 12 - 15, they may not see themselves as particularly feminine. They are - but it's not a huge part of their self image. With boys, if you aren't say a football player or other wise a jock, how are people that don't know you going to see you as particularly masculine.

When I was a teen many decades ago, having long hair and barely shaving yet, sure my homones were going crazy and I was thinking about girls a lot, but did I project masculinity ? I don't think so. In fact it's fair to say that that was the fashion then, even among the most macho boys.

Total bullshit headline.

Or liberal indoctrination. When I was growing up, I was no jock either. But I always considered myself masculine/a man.

Now with the liberal indoctrination, it shows kids begin to question that and accept that they may be gender non confirming. That 27% of them consider this is alarming and shows leftist indoctrination of thought.
