A medical scandal is currently unfolding across Western liberal societies. As Parents with Inconvenient Truths about Trans reveals, the primary victims are vulnerable, socially awkward kids with normally developing bodies who fall for the Internet-fueled promise that they can solve their emotional, psychological, or physical discomfort by adopting an opposite-sex identity. With deep reservations about the new gender orthodoxy that informs this promise and the irreversible one-size-fits-all medical prescription that comes with it, the parent contributors to this anthology share deeply personal stories about transition and desistance that won't be told at the gender clinic. They also offer practical advice based on hard-earned experience that won't be found in mainstream media. Whether progressive or conservative, gay or straight, secular or religious, they all share the aim of protecting children from the physical and emotional harms of the gender industry and seek to empower and encourage other parents and individuals to combat gender ideology at home, in schools, in clinics, and beyond.

“This book questions society’s willingness to abandon a generation of children to the dictates of a global political movement. It challenges what it means to be ‘kind’ and blows apart the activist ideology you’re supposed to believe. Essential reading for every parent, lawmaker, and teacher, and for everyone who cares about the welfare of children and the importance of truth.” —Stephanie Davies-Arai BEM, Founder and Director, Transgender Trend

“In the controversy over pediatric gender medicine, some of the most important voices are often the ones least heard. This collection of essays features highly compelling first-hand observations by parents on the front lines of the gender wars. The authors write with sensitivity, nuance, and a deep understanding of the issues. Parents with Inconvenient Truths about Trans is a critical resource for teenagers, medical professionals, journalists, policymakers, and most of all, other parents.” —Leor Sapir, Fellow, Manhattan Institute for Policy Research

“A much-needed and long-awaited set of narratives that should be considered essential reading for anyone either directly or indirectly affected by gender dysphoria, including trans-identifying teenagers and their parents, and for those who work with gender dysphoric patients, including teaching and clinical staff.” —Dr. Az Hakeem, Consultant Psychiatrist and Specialist in Gender Dysphoria

“These urgent and often heartbreaking testimonies document the pain, suffering, and hope of parents desperately trying to resist family fragmentation and the alienation of troubled but much-loved children.” —Bernard Lane, Journalist, Gender Clinic News

“Parents were the first to point out the unprecedented medical scandal that has been playing out before us, and they have been widely demonized for doing so. . . . This book brings their important stories to a wider audience. This book should be required reading for anyone who works with children and teens.” —Lisa Marchiano, LCSW, NCPsyA, Jungian Analyst

“This collection of essays offers a raw, informative, and incisive critique of youth gender medicine from the perspective of parents. At a time when parental concerns and questions about their children’s gender distress are often belittled or dismissed as ‘transphobia,’ this book couldn’t be more important. . . . [I]n years to come, it will provide some answers when society looks back to understand what happened during the scandal of pediatric gender medicine.” —Sasha Ayad, M.Ed., LPC, Cohost, Gender: A Wider Lens Podcast
