I would say that demonic influence produces the "malfunction". Just as those engaged in substance abuse over a prolonged period usually end up with severe mental malfunctions. The problem is both spiritual/moral and chemical/psychological. In my observation the former usually precedes the latter.
The identity madness is being taken to it's logical, dark conclusion. You don't see it a whole lot right now, but from time to time I'll see things in the news in which people claim to be a different age, a different species, or even several combinations of multiple characters, genders, names, etc. The insanity will not cease to grow and morph until God grants repentance to the twisted minds and depraved hearts of a lost and dying generation.

Ridicilous. The trans pronouns are above, and it's not like anyone picks one they feel suits them best, and sticks with it...they're fluid. School teachers are ordered to address the confused kids by their gender pronoun, or be fired for being a hateful, intolerant bigot. Thing is, the kids feelings can, and do change throughout the day, so they need to tell these teachers how they're to address them at any given moment. Just one more angle where the kids know they can control the adults.
Interesting how sodomy,the trans nonsense, and all of the rest of the LGBTQ's have steamrolled over this nation, and how a simple signature from OBamas hand, that allowed same gender marraige, got it all going. They went from hiding in closets, to writing the rules, infecting the public schools, duping ignorant society, and demanding reparations.
"We just want to love and marry whom we choose, and that's all...we don't have any agendas". Yeah, right.

Thanks for the text, Dr Tim, most apt. It sounds to me like a preacher's three pointer, the three C's. I know a Brethren brother who sometimes uses that approach, he will say, "Today we look at the four P's."
As one who has dabbled a bit with watercolour painting, did you know there is a hue called Rose Madder? It is a subtle pink, and very popular, especially with floral artists. But it is never used nowadays in permanent works of art because of its trait in fading very quickly. In this it is very similar to the deep, dark crimson, Alizarin Crimson, probably the most popular crimson colour of all time, but extremely fugitive, and can fade to nothing after a few years. Both colours have been replaced by modern synthetic, long lasting colours like Permanent Rose and Perylene Maroon.

The world is going mad. Well, madder than it was before. Well no, on second thoughts, there was once a time when God looked down upon men and saw in their hearts only evil, and that, continually. And so he decided enough was enough, and killed everyone in the world except eight souls whom God used to replenish the earth, and from whom we are all descended. That was quite drastic, but still nothing compared to what will happen at the second advent of the Lord Jesus Christ, when sinners will prefer to be crushed by rocks rather than have an encounter with The Word.
