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. ( )

Extremely well written, nuanced, engaging look into the movement that is plaguing American girls. ( )

The central thesis of this book is that some proportion of adolescent women who trans identify is triggered not necessarily by gender dysphoria they are experiencing, but rather a fad that is only promoted by mental health issues (such as social anxiety or "not fitting in") endemic particularly in late Gen Y / Gen Z teenagers. I don't believe this should be an idea that is taboo to bring up, and I found the position reasonably-argued by the book. Three things stuck out to me as compelling:

* Trans identification is concentrated in friend groups.
* The rapid increase in the identification among girls, without a corresponding rise among boys.
* The significant increase in mental health issues, combined with a fall in sexual experience as well as general in-person socialization, for teenagers in recent years.

As a (hopeful) future father, it was very surprising to me to hear that children as early as kindergarten are being taught about how gender is a continuum and shouldn't just be thought of as binary male-female. I don't have a problem with this idea in general, but I do think it is far too early to be introducing it to 5-year-olds -- it feels akin to talking about sexual intercourse or viewing a horror movie. None of these topics are intrinsically bad, but to me are inappropriate things to be exposed to at that age.

On the education topic, the lengths to which colleges (& high schools!) would go to to hide a student's trans identification from their parents made me extremely concerned. It made me wonder more generally about how good the relationship could be between parents & children in these households, if the interactions have gotten so bad that the women didn't even feel comfortable to talk about something so core to their identity as gender. My perception is, the trans identification and the parents' surprise and/or resistance was really a symptom of a problem that started much earlier and encompasses the entirety of their familial relationship.

I think my ultimate takeaway from the book is to try to encourage positive habits among adolescents in order to avoid getting into this situation in the first place. Things like promoting independence of thought, of socialization among a wide group of people, of having experiences generally and not being afraid of making mistakes. The book provides a pretty strong argument to be wary of giving unfettered access to the entire Internet to adolescents, since it means they can fall into bubbles and start to act more as a cult member than just a consumer of information. I think this all basically falls into, how good is your relationship with your children? Are you consistently investing time and energy to make sure you're there for them?

NB: I have a problem with the cover design of this book, which I believe is pretty deceiving. In an interview, the author dismisses this as "I obviously wasn't involved with the design", but in a book that takes pains to differentiate teens/adolescents versus adults, it is quite surprising to use an image of a girl that looks a decade younger than the group of people Shrier actually writes about. It is unfortunate that this design was chosen, and I hope that it is changed in future editions. ( )

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.
