This review was first published at First Things Parents with Inconvenient Truths About Trans: Tales from the Home Front in the Fight to Save Our Kids, edited by Josie A. and Dina S., Pitchstone Publishing, 392 pages, $19.95 In June 2021, two mothers launched a Substack called Parents with Inconvenient Truths about Trans (PITT). Here, parents of trans-identifying children could tell their stories and voice their opposition to the greatest medical scandal of our time. Within a year, the project became famous in the “parent underground,” with over 250 stories published and more pouring in from around the world, including the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia, Ireland, Spain, South Africa, France, New Zealand, and countries in Latin America. A selection of these stories have now been compiled into a collection; it is a heartbreaking read.
Do you think this book would be good to share with a parent who seems to be supporting their child's decision to transition?
