Book Review: Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters by Abigail Shrier

If this book was written in the 80s it would have concerned the quack recovered memory therapy trend. If this had been written in the early 2000s it would have talked about how teen girls were engaging in pro-eating disorder chat rooms and self-harming. If this book had been written in the 1600s it would have concerned the witch craze.

So nothing new, teen girls are a mess, they always have been. Only now they're allowed to take puberty blocks which can halt brain development, or lead to osteoporosis, among other things. And almost 100% of girls on puberty blockers go on to take hormones like testosterone which can lead to sterilization almost 100% of the time, not to mention all sorts of cancers, all before the child can legally vote.

As someone who used to be an alienated, depressed, blah blah blah teen girl, I find this whole movement suspect because there is no room for questions or debate. Unless you follow blindly you're called transphobic and get "canceled." I believe you should be old enough to buy alcohol or rent a car before you can decide to permanently carve up your body and sterilize yourself for life.

This book was well-researched, interesting, thought-provoking, and entertaining.

BTW I also find it suspect that the pharmaceutical companies make around 1.5 million per trans child so hmm...what do you think that's all about? Oh right, just capitalism at the expense of a child.
