Can a person truly be 'trapped' in the wrong body? Can modern medicine really 'reassign' sex? What should our law say on these issues? Anderson offers a balanced approach to the policy issues, a nuanced vision of human embodiment, and a sober and honest survey of the human costs of getting human nature wrong. In doing so, he examines the grim contrast between the media's sunny depiction and the often sad realities of gender-identity struggles. He believes the most helpful therapies focus on helping people accept and even embrace the truth about their bodies and reality.

Anti-trans, unscientific, harmful, dangerous rhetoric.

"Well you don't pick your parents and you don't pick your partner" - Detective Martin Hart, True Detective, Season 1

In context of this topic, perhaps this statement could be amended to be something like "Well you don't pick your DNA and you don't pick your chromosomes"

Just a few years from now once this strange social trend collapses under its own weight, people will wonder how the sterilization of pre-pubescent children not only wasn't frowned upon but was actively encouraged as a moral good. This book is a breezy, non-polemical dissection (eek....no pun intended) of a hollow and shabby progressive meme that was strangely taken seriously as a moral & political movement during the early 21st century in the Western world.

This work does succeed in steering clear of the graphic details that can be found in other works addressing this same topic and I did appreciate that very much. The ruined lives of people of all types and all ages will eventually pile up to the point that it can no longer be denied and this movement will implode. Unfortunately at this time we are a few years away from that tipping point. At present we are stuck in the intermediary holding pattern where common sense criticism is only slowly beginning to be allowed. Sadly many, many people are going to suffer while we wait for this nefarious meme to collapse. Let this book be your guide.
