Lost in trans nation : a child psychiatrist's guide out of the madness / Miriam Grossman, MD ; foreword by Dr. Jordan B. Peterson.

Grossman, Miriam, (author.). Peterson, Jordan B., (writer of foreword.).

"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. The beliefs that male and female are human inventions; that the sex of a newborn is arbitrarily "assigned"; and that as a result the child requires "affirmation" through medical interventions--these ideas are divorced from reality and therefore hazardous, especially to children. The core belief--that biology can and should be denied--is a repudiation of reality and a mockery of what hard science teaches about being male and female. No child is born in the wrong body, Dr. Grossman reassures us, their bodies are just fine; it's their emotional lives that need healing. Whether you're facing a gender identity battle in your home right now, or want to prevent one, you need this book to guide you and your loved ones out of the madness"-- Provided by publisher
