Welcome to the PITT weekly roundup where you find a list of the week’s postings along with links to some of our favorite books, social media, and podcasts. Please continue the fight against the harms of gender ideology by sharing.
Access is to all PITT content is free. Our objective is to inform the public of the devastating impact of gender ideology on families through our personal experiences.
PASSAGE OF THE WEEK:
From Christmas Letter: It's been three years since my daughter tried to take her own life for the first time and got locked up in a hospital. Simultaneously, her twin brother started on cross hormones. The last time I saw him, he looked pitiful -skinny with his lion's mane like hair destroyed by colored chemicals, dressed cheaply in over sexualized shreds. Of course, he demanded I accept him as a woman. Of course, I couldn't. I was called TERF and the rest of it.
Wonderful, understanding Miriam Grossman tells us to never give up hope. Well, there is this German proverb: Hope dies last but will eventually.

January 18: It Finally Broke Me

HOW YOU CAN HELP
Join FAIR in Medicine for a conversation with Erin Friday, Attorney, California mother, Co-Lead of Our Duty-USA, an advocacy group raising awareness of the harms of the gender industry and executive committee member for Protect Kids California. Protect Kids California is a Statewide Ballot Initiative that will: REQUIRE PARENT NOTIFICATION FROM SCHOOL, PROTECT GIRLS SPORTS, PREVENT CHILD STERILIZATION. You can help by signing petition if you’re in California or by donating.
California plays an important role in setting legislative agendas across our country. The California legislature has been passing a multitude of laws that are designed to force parents to transition their children, force schools to deceive parents and break up the family unit, promote transgenderism in the classroom and shelve pornographic books. California is the first transgender sanctuary state and its laws have turned California into the transgender capital of the country where minors and medical providers can flee to avoid their own state's prohibitions against gender interventions.
As the Western Region Lead of Our Duty, Erin is fighting the state sponsored overreach. How is she fighting back in a liberal state? Join us to learn about Erin's inspiring work to safeguard children in California.
WHAT WE’RE READING
Lost in Trans Nation: A Child Psychiatrist’s Guide Out of the Madness
by Miriam Grossman, MD
Throughout our country, atrocities are taking place in doctor’s offices and hospital operating rooms. Physically healthy children and adolescents are being permanently disfigured and sometimes sterilized. Those youth say they’re transgender, and we—their parents, teachers, therapists, and doctors—are supposed to agree with their self-diagnosis and take a back seat as they make the most consequential decision of their lives: to alter their bodies in order to, we are told, “align” them with their minds.
This would not be acceptable in any other field of medicine. Indeed, the treatments our medical authorities and Washington call “crucial” and “life-saving” have been banned in progressive Sweden, Finland, and Britain.
Dr. Miriam Grossman is a child and adolescent psychiatrist whose practice consists of trans-identified youth and their families. In Lost in Trans Nation, she implores parents to reject the advice of gender experts and politicians and trust their guts—their parental instincts—in the face of an onslaught of ideologically driven misinformation that steers them and their children toward risky decisions they may end up mourning for the rest of their lives.
SOCIAL MEDIA THAT NAILED IT
This is an oldie but goodie. In July of 2023, Johns Hopkins posted this online glossary on their Gender and Sexuality Resources site. They defined the word “lesbian” as a “non-man attracted to non-men". It was subsequently taken down after an online uproar. Just a reminder that the post may be gone but the ideology behind it remains.
IN THE NEWS
The World Health Organization clarifies that it will not make any recommendations for children and adolescents due to limited evidence regarding long-term outcomes of affirmative care for youth.
