Just so people understand, this is why I think Shrier’s book is useless:
It’s an absolute joke to talk about a loving relationship when there’s such a breakdown in communication between parents and the child that they are somehow completely unaware of this.
And yes, these measures are horrid. The idea of “trans kids” is ludicrous. Absolutely. But you don’t solve this problem by pandering to the very people who effed up these kids in the first place.
