In her chilling 2019 book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, Abigail Shrier lays out the way a network of young “trans influencers” with massive social media followings assist young girls in embarking on the transgender journey without the knowledge or consent of their parents.
These influencers produce how-two videos and vlogs explaining how girls can lie to their doctors and therapists in order to procure testosterone (referred to colloquially as “T”); purchase breast binders online; and amass the various accessories necessary to begin living as a member of the opposite sex.
Shrier also notes that despite the current narrative from the trans movement and their enablers in academia, the media, and progressive politics, puberty blockers are tremendously dangerous. They impact brain development; stunt growth; risk barring the user from reaching peak IQ; inhibit sexual function; reduce the density of bones; raise the risk of heart attack by up to five times; thicken the blood; and create a higher risk of cancer, blood clots, and vaginal atrophy. The desired results are often permanent. Girls will grow body hair and beards, often within months; their voices will lower, and even their facial structure will change. Thus the title of her somber book: Irreversible Damage.
