“The “Trans” Epidemic Sweeping Teenage Girls”
Until just a few years ago, “gender dysphoria” —severe discomfort in one’s biological sex —was vanishingly rare. It was typically found in less than 0,01 percent of the population, emerged in early childhood, an afflicted males almost exclusively.
But today whole groups of female friends in colleges, high shools, and even middle schools across the country are coming out as “transgender”. These are girls who had never expirienced any discomfort in their biological sex until heard a coming out story from a speaker at a school assembly or discovered the internet community of trans “influencers”.
Unsuspecting parents are awakening to find their daughters in thrall to hio trans YouTube stars and “gender-affirming” educators and therapists who push life-changing interventions on young girls—including medically unnecessary double mastectomies and puberty blockers that can cause permanent infertility. Abigail Shrier, a writer for the Wall Street Journal, has dug deep into the trans epidemic, talking to the girls, their agonized parents, and the councelors and doctors who enable gender transitions, as well as to “detransitioners”—young women who bitterly regret what they have done to themselves.
Coming out as transgender immediately boosts these girls’ social status, Shrier finds but once they take the first steps of transition, it is not easy to walk back. She offers urgently needed advice about how parents can protect their daughters.
A generation of girls is at risk, Abigail Shrier’s essential book will helt ypu understand what the trans craze is and how you can inoculate your child against it—or how to retrieve her from this dangerous path.
