My child identified as trans a few years ago. I wasn’t worried at first, but the more I learnt about the impacts for her and other transitioning young people, and the impact on women and girls generally, the more concerned I became.
I am now convinced that this is medicine’s next big scandal waiting to break, and that trans activism operates as a cult.
I have been to meetings and participated in sharing info on social media. I try to keep evidence on hand so I can counter misinformation.
My child stopped speaking to me – way before I became active. Anything other than full affirmation was not acceptable. I was not supposed to read gender critical sites, and not allowed to express concerns about the medical pathway, even though I offered (qualified) support.
