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).

“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.

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.”
