Interesting article. I believe that your theory extends far beyond just trans persons. In fact, I would argue that the feminization of western society over the past four decades has resulted in the explosion of adults claiming to be trans, not to mention the current epidemic of male homosexuality.
You are correct that it is the father who is the chief corrector as it were of the children. Particularly with boys as they grow from toddlers to preteens. And not only with respect to the proper pronunciation of words. Also, it was not only the father who engaged in this activity. Other male relatives, such grandfathers and uncles, as well as neighbors, coaches and teachers participated in molding proper behaviors in young boys. In the past deviant behaviors, when they were identified, were corrected, sometimes with harsh methods.
Nowadays, deviant behaviors, whether they be violence, homosexuality or transgenderism are met by and large with supportive baby talk. Hence the behavior is encouraged rather than discouraged. That leads to a dysfunctional society, which we are seeing currently.
Excellent article. Great perspective.
Or, as my mom used to say, "snap out of it."
