So, do your kid a favor. Unplug them.

Parenting advice from a detransitioned woman.

“For me, I first really discovered F2T transition on the internet.  I made lots of trans friends through the internet.  I learned about F2T “passing guides” on the internet. I bought my first chest binder on the internet. I got lots of positive feedback loops from other transitioning adolescents on the internet (including them saying things like “your parents just don’t understand/don’t support you, you can sue them if they don’t give in” etc).  I saw my first dose of F2T pornography on the internet.  I found a doctor that I could go see to give me hormone treatment on the internet….

“In closing, this trend is going to have a devastating impact on today’s youth about 10 years down the road.  These things are not very well studied, and we are/were their guinea pigs.  Be a role model, be a mentor, but most of all, don’t be afraid to be a parent.  Don’t allow yourself to be bullied into this.  This is your child’s health that is being played with, and your child’s health is not a game – it is life or death.”

  1. Good advice. It’s not just the trans trend you have to worry about. I have been a teaching assistant for college classes for about a year. Most of the people in the classes are 5-7 years younger than me, which isn’t a big age difference but some of them really can’t function without checking their phone every five minutes. It’s almost like obsessive compulsive disorder. I know people older than me, even a few baby boomers with the social media addiction.

    I think it’s perfectly reasonable for parents to act like parents and put reasonable limits on their teen’s internet usage, especially when they’ve fallen in with a culty clique that tells them their life will be better with cross-sex hormones and surgery.
