Saturday Link Love: Trans-Kid “Trend,” Gun Violence, and Fake News

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

Why Is There a Sudden Trans-Kid Trend? on Scary Mommy—“I’ll tell you why. Because they’re less afraid of you people.”

Homeschooling Won’t Save Our Kids From Gun Violence, on Romper—“[Emma Gonzalez] was an example of the positive power of schools, which have organized better than other unwitting target groups did after gun violence visited their worlds.”

The Grim Conclusions of the Largest-Ever Study of Fake News, on the Atlantic—“Falsehoods almost always beat out the truth on Twitter, penetrating further, faster, and deeper into the social network than accurate information.”

The Last Temptation, on the Atlantic, “How evangelicals, once culturally confident, became an anxious minority seeking political protection from the least traditionally religious president in living memory.”

In Winston Churchill, Hollywood rewards a mass murderer, on the Washington Post—“Words, in the end, are all that Churchill admirers can point to. His actions are another matter altogether.”
