Although it has never been easy, the fear of entering womanhood is so excruciatingly painful for some girls they want to escape it entirely. And many are desperately trying by adopting a new persona.
Today they are being seduced by a social contagion that comes with experimental medicalization that promises them liberation, uniqueness, a new identity, and a fresh start on life. What they’re getting, however, is grave harm to their psyches, and their bodies are being destroyed. Worst of all, the damage is irreversible.
Reading journalist Abigail Shrier’s much-anticipated book, Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters was unlike reading any other book in that it felt more familiar than anything I’d ever read because I’ve been swimming in this particular sea for some time now. I’ve been reporting at The Christian Post on the gender identity movement and all of its implications for almost four years. In the interest of full disclosure, Shrier lists my name and those of many others who’ve been reporting, researching, and educating the public on this topic in the acknowledgments section of her book.
