Could have written this myself. Every fear realised in your writing. So scared for my girl’s future

I have a granddaughter, not quite 9 months old & I pray that this madness is over by the time she's in her teens.

Every time I read one of these essays I can’t help but think of what utter madness is being promoted by people that must surely know better. How can an entire political party led by the President of the United States not just tolerate, but actively promote the destruction of healthy bodies of children with confused minds. How can “medical” professionals and mental health experts join with chorus calling procedures that are medical malpractice “lifesaving care?” All of trans ideology is madness and those of us who see it must unequivocally proclaim that the “emperor has no clothes.” The truth will win out, but we must hasten that victory. Everyday until this madness is defeated more harm is done, some of which is irreversible. “Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9

You speak for many of us. This ideology puts parents in a hellscape of constant fear, bombarding us from a dozen different directions.

Reading through comments, I am surprised to see as many parents of males transitioning to female on here. I feel I’ve been on an island of few, but it seems more males are succumbing to this phenomenon as we speak. It’s all so very heartbreaking

With my 15 year old daughter, many of the fears that you expressed I have now experienced and I couldn't agree more. It's not the many other losses that are so great that overwhelm us as mothers, they seem like nothing today compared to our fears for our daughter's future. I live in Minnesota and a new law past further marginalized my control as a parent. It's all just a hope and a prayer right now that we can get through this without sustaining irreversible damage.

Your FEAR is real and heartbreaking. All of us have the same emotions connected to this evil cult. We fear tomorrow. Every day. We fear the future for our brainwashed children. We fear the worse outcome. We fear losing our loved one. We fear the tide will not change. We fear this nightmare will not end. We fear we will not recover from this pain. In the bible it says under 2 Tim 1:7 “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the power of love…” It is our LOVE that will sustain us, love that will overcome our fear, our love for our children is strong, we must cling to the power of our love, our love is never ending, our love is real, our love is what our children need. Our love is our hope. Their hope. Never give up.

I’m so sorry; I wasn’t trying to be glib or careless, I assure you.

I’m in England so I don’t know of specific American organisations out there who can help. I will contact my GC friends, some of whom will know. I promise I will get back to you.🙏

I hope your daughter eventually realizes that the story she has manufactured is not true. https://lucyleader.substack.com/p/stories-we-tell-ourselves

I recommend you to contact or watch Dr Miriam Grossman. You need to expose your daughter to real information about transgender issues and expose her to watch the ones who are regretting it big time!

The emotional trauma these doctors, society and schools have inflicted on our children infuriates me. I can remember a day when my autistic daughter was naive but happy. One year later, she was a total mess. My biggest fear now is exactly what you mention, they want to change back but feel too much shame at admitting it was a mistake. As a parent, how do you navigate this with an autistic teen? I know that my daughter will likely find some way to blame me for all of this, that’s been her way lately. I understand she is doing her best to separate from me ... but this was something I never would have predicted.
