Thank you. My sister has been completely silent when my daughter went through this. You spoke to all the feelings I had/have about silent family and friends.

You said exactly what is in my heart. I wish we weren’t in this.

I am sorry you had to go through this alone. Please know that your story has helped me though. As a panicking single father trying to make sense of this all, it makes a difference and gives me hope. Thank you.

Thank you for putting into words what I have been trying to for the last 6 months since my 30 yr old son told us he is Trans. No signs, no clues, just a bomb that went off letting us all in shock trying to find words to explain the feeling of sadness, of anger, of loss and helplessness. After the initial shock the frustration of learning the real world we are living in, where instead of getting the help he needs he is applauded and affirmed. Fear for my other college age children whom I was so proud and willing to send off and "pay" for what now I am not sure what kind of education (indoctrination) I too, cannot sleep.. It is also the last thought before I fall asleep and the first thought as I wake up. Now I not only pray for my son, but for all the other mothers and fathers going through this same nightmare of something so irrational and senseless as believing one can change sex or that one was born in the wrong body. Simply not possible. Thanks again.

People , there is a trans troll called “Fiona” on this site.

Saying the usual trans nonsense and badgering.

If you have received a message from “ Fiona” , you’re not alone.

I’m so sorry. One day they will see the reality. I hope you can find others to support you. Your so-called friends are toxic. You need to make new ones. I know your profound hurt will always be there though. I hope you find like minded people who care about you.

Funny thing is, my daughter didn't believe in any of the gender ideology and trans ideology, she was completely against it and only believed in biology! She started questioning kids at school about it and they thought she was mean and probably transphobic, she kept saying jokingly that she should identify as a paper clip! She won't tell me what changed in her thinking or why her thinking changed, but says "why can't people say what they want to be", she even agrees its a social construction, but still wants to be called another name and says she's a homosexual boy, . I'm just lost .

No biologically male gay man will ever accept her. Does she/ can she understand that? Same sex attraction is exactly that.

She is straight, not “ homosexual “. She is actually unknowingly being offensive to gay men.

These kids are brainwashed, they don’t seem to understand what’s really happening. I hope you can find the reason why she altered her scientific mind. Hopefully, she’ll understand before it’s too late.

How terrible for you to witness. I’m so sorry.

She says she's understands but I doubt she really grasps it. She has friends that are trans etc and online friends too.

Its heartbreaking that her normal rational mind has been brainwashed. She also has been diagnosed ASD.

PITT, you have my wholehearted support. Your powerful essay deserves an even wider audience. I'd like to suggest that you also submit it to WoLF, the Women's Liberation Front. WoLF is actively working to reverse the transgender madness we are all subjected to today. I am sure they will publish what you have written.

Every week, the Letters from the Front section of the WoLF website posts a letter from an anonymous gender critical woman about how the aggressive transgender movement has negatively affected her life. On November 3rd, WoLF published my letter. This letter told of my response to learning an old boyfriend had two of his four daughters declare themselves to be transgender shortly after he died. Last week I learned one of these two daughters had a double mastectomy at age 24. She is also bipolar and autistic.

https://www.womensliberationfront.org/letters-from-the-front-submissions/from-a-heartbroken-woman

WoLF is also working hard to defeat SB132, the California law that requires the prison system to transfer any biological male inmate who declares himself to be a "woman" into the women's prison where he can beat, rape, and impregnate his female cellmate. So far, three hundred biological men have been transferred into women's prisons. Things have gotten so bad, California prisons now routinely distribute condoms and information on how to secure abortions to all women prisoners.

The deranged transgender cult that is now sweeping through society doesn't just harm parents and their vulnerable children. It has the potential to destroy our entire society, and it must be stopped.

It is spreading at an alarming rate. Society has been too preoccupied with the covid pandemic to notice this. It is more destructive in some ways as it affects the next generations. Covid has already mutated and will weaken in this generation.. The same must happen to this mad ideology. Mutate and weaken?

This is beyond question evil and delusional. Humans go through puberty. Every parent went through puberty. It's how you go from being a child to being an adult.

Trans delusion means that the child is rejecting the adult in them. That some affirm this make THEM the evil ones.

Has anyone tried to take the trans deluded child away from their current environment, and put them into another? Say, for instance, the home of the grandparents in another town? After removing the cellphone, of course.

Remove the cell phone, the most obvious thing to do and yet the most difficult. When I tried it I was treated like a surgeon trying to amputate a healthy body part. Impossible, as children now think that cell phones are essential items and they are entitled to them. Would have been accused of assault if I had tried. It stayed under the pillow at night and was always firmly attached to the body during the day.

Well, here's a thought - cancel the contract. Just do it.

Some days I feel like giving up, but nearly 5 years into this nightmare I see glimmers of hope...

I Will NEVER use her male name or gender pronouns, and I've told her that...we have an understanding....

I picked her up from the train station last night...she had on tight jeans with embroidered flowers and sequins, her short hair in piggy tails and hair clip and looked gorgeous...my heart mended a little...but know it will be broken again when someone calls her 'Josh' x

Hang in there - mums unite xx

I can not use the male pronoun. Seems wrong. Everybody around me refers to her as him. I am alone.

I know enough about detransitioners to know that your daughter's showing up in unambiguously feminine attire is a very big deal. No "trans man" would dress that way unless they were in a state of flux. You have reason to hope. You hang in there too.

The pain and the anger in this piece reflects my own. I find myself being very distrustful and becoming overwhelmed with anger. I also try to warn and caution other parents and it is like they can not see the veil that I have lived behind. We are parents who have seen behind the curtain and we will never be the same. For those parents who have children that desist or de-transition they too are left with scars.

Thank you for putting our day-by-day, hour-by-hour, minute-by minute experience on paper. I am so tired of waking to this, falling asleep to this, and dreaming this. It’s a true living nightmare — your child in peril with the world, including your closest friends, happily pushing him or her toward the cliff. No escape. I think it’s the constant questioning of my own sanity that really gets to me. Like the ground is shifting beneath my feet constantly. Most of my friends are worthless or worse, at best saying they’ll read an article or watch a video but then never following through. Such a small act. Cannot imagine what keeps them from it. Thank goodness for the one or two who get it. I have always been an absolute rock, but I don’t think I’d make it through this without them.

Did I write this? Nothing has ever felt this way- nothing - there are no words to accurately describe this pain. We are rocks!

I have a friend who refused to read Abigail Shrier’s book on my recommendation because: “my cousin liked the book and she’s a conservative, so I don’t think I’ll like it.” The fact that I’m not a conservative wasn’t enough to convince her. How’s that for intellectual curiosity?
