Sobering, particularly if you are a parent with daughters.

A great study in how this craze has spread, and continues to do so. ( )

An excellent book, extremely well researched. Every one with a daughter should read this book to help protect their daughter(s) from this trend. They need to know that the “system” is rigged against them and how to fight it. The author points out that only in transgenderism does the medical/psychology/psychiatric industry are patients allowed to declare themselves ill due to gender dysphoria and then allowed, at virtually any age to ask for and be granted their request to change their bodies in irreversible ways, WITHOUT any medical evaluation. Don’t believe it, or agree with it? Then READ this book cover to cover. It makes no difference what political way you lean. ( )

Essential reading, especially if you're the parent of daughters. This book is a serious inquiry into the surge of gender dysphoria among teen girls. Shrier is careful to cast her investigative net widely in consulting with physicians, teachers, trans-affirming psychotherapists, and administrators promoting "gender affirmation" in American public schools. She also interviews many educators who lost their careers or reputations challenging the wisdom of puberty-blocking drugs or “binding” (physically obstructing the growth of breasts). She speaks directly to teens who transitioned and later regretted it.

The book is a sobering wake-up call to people who are in denial that the schools and colleges their children attend are providing transgender affirmation and even treatment without parental consent. ( )

In a controversial but important book, the author details the risks to young girls of the current trans trend, encouraging girls who are not sufficiently "girly" to declare they are boys. What makes it worse is that they are being encouraged to take puberty blockers, followed by cross sex hormones, to bind their breasts, and to have double mastectomies. Well researched and well written, with a few weaknesses. For one, the author too often accepts the phrase "top surgery" which doesn't describe well what is really happening and lulls people into a false sense of not so bad. But what lost the book a star was the ending of the book where she declares that women have it pretty good, better than men mostly, and that we actually are a nurturing sex, prone to caring professions. In short, not men. This may be a function of being published by Regnery, a nod to the conservatism of the publishers, or she may actually be doing what she says she is doing and using her daughter as a sample size of one to declare how women behave (like a little girl, apparently). Otherwise, highly recommended. If you are a hypersensitive feminist (I am sometimes) you might start by tearing out that chapter before you read. ( )

Scare mongering. Even the cover - suggesting little children get such treatment, is deliberately misleading. Gross. ( )

All the institutions we've built to keep young people from making irreparable mistakes have failed them. The universities, the schools, the doctors, the therapists, and even the churches have been won over by a dogged ideology that claims to speak for a more important class of victim.
This is a story Americans need to hear. Whether or not you have an adolescent daughter, whether or not your child has fallen for this transgender craze, America has become fertile ground for this mass enthusiasm for reasons that have everything to do with our cultural fraility: parents are undermined; experts are over-relied upon; dissenters in science and medicine are intimidated; free speech truckles under renewed attack; government healthcare laws harbor hidden consequences; and an intersectional era has arisen in which the desire to escape identity encourages individuals to take cover in victim groups.
The most recent Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) reports an expected incidence of gender dysphoria at .005-.014 percent for natal males, and a much lower .002-.003 percent for natal females ... In the last decade ... adolescent prevalence has surged across the West. In the United States, the prevalence has increased by over 1,000 percent ... In Britain, the increase is 4,000 percent, and three-quarters of those referred for gender treatment are girls.
