Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters by Abigail Shrier
نویسنده: Abigail Shrier
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 .01 percent of the population, emerged in early childhood, and afflicted males almost exclusively.
But today whole groups of female friends in colleges, high schools, and even middle schools across the country are coming out as “transgender.” These are girls who had never experienced any discomfort in their biological sex until they 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 hip 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 counselors 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 help you understand what the trans craze is and how you can inoculate your child against it—or how to retrieve her from this dangerous path.

Goodreads users review :
Balanced, well-researched book. Contrary to what some reviewers have claimed, this is NOT a rant against trans people or gender dysphoria. Read the book and learn. I did. Marcia D. rated it: 5.0 from 5.0
A must read for anyone wondering whether there’s anything behind the sudden increase in FtM teenagers. Jo Kneale rated it: 5.0 from 5.0
A frightening but must read I came to this book because I read the author’s article last year in the Wall Street Journal. If you have a tween or teen daughter this should be the next book that you read. I am always amazed that the law of unintended consequence is ignored so often especially in making laws. I was shocked that the Affordable Care Act plays such a pivotal point in the epidemic. PAUL G rated it: 5.0 from 5.0
