I recall seeing a cartoon by Kathryn Lamb, which shows a teacher standing at the front of her class and asking those who are the same sex this term as last term to put their hands up. We all get the joke these days but it wouldn’t have made any sense when my kids were little.

When my daughter was in her third year of life, she announced she was a boy. Her brother ­put her straight. He was the big boy in the family and she was the little girl. She wasn’t best pleased and argued that she could be a boy if she wanted to.

I wasn’t particularly surprised that she either wanted to be a boy or believed she was one. She had short hair and hardly ever wore dresses, which meant she looked more like the boys than the girls in her picture books and she was mistaken for a boy every single time by strangers. What’s more, she didn’t know any girls. She had one older brother – two years her senior – and there was a dearth of girls her age amongst friends and neighbours, so all her playmates were boys. She would share a bedtime bath with her brother, so she knew they had different genitalia. But at that age she didn’t understand what that difference meant or what being a girl meant.

I responded to her declaration by telling her that she was in fact a girl, that there was no reason to want to be a boy because a girl could do everything a boy could do, that I was a girl myself albeit now grown up. Soon afterwards she started pre-school playgroup, where she met other little girls and that was the end of the matter. She was never a girly girl but she never again expressed a desire to be anything other than a girl. Whether she spent her childhood as I’d spent my own, secretly hating the fact that she was a girl, I don’t know.

That was back in 1990. I wonder, in today’s climate, whether anyone would have suggested she might actually be a boy born in the wrong body and, if so, whether she would have latched onto the idea and refused to let it go. This article, which describes a girl whose behaviour – rejecting dolls, playing football, etc – sounds exactly like my daughter’s, inclines me to think she would have. It actually doesn’t bear thinking about and my heart breaks for all parents who find themselves in this situation. I admit I find it hard not to judge those who take a different approach to the one I think I would have taken.

On this page I put links to websites of adults – parents, professionals and anyone else with something relevant to say – who are concerned with the rise in the number of children who want to transition, as well as to the stories of families who are going through it and to an assortment of articles, the inclusion of which isn’t intended to imply endorsement.


So, you think you may be trans…:

A critical guide to the debate around trans identities for parents, teachers and others involved with caring for children and young people

Written primarily for adults with caring responsibilities but likely to be of interest to anyone concerned with the rise in the number of young people seeking to socially and or medically “transition”, this book by sociologist, Tim Davies, is a well-researched, clear and comprehensive explanation of the phenomenon of transgenderism and its effects as an ideology, with particular focus on the current generation of transitioners. The book can be ordered here.

How to be a Trans-Educated Rational Parent

4th Wave Now

“4thWaveNow was started by the mother of a teenage girl who suddenly announced she was a “trans man” after a few weeks of total immersion in YouTube transition vlogs.  (The daughter has since desisted from identifying as transgender.) After much research and fruitless searching for an alternative online viewpoint, this mom began writing about her deepening skepticism of the ever-accelerating medical and media fascination with the phenomenon of “transgender children.”

4thWaveNow has now expanded to feature not only the writing of the founder of this blog, but that of other parents, formerly trans-identified people, and people with professional expertise and experience with young people questioning their gender identity.”

Here is an interview with 4thWaveNow founder & her daughter Chiara 27.02.19.

Transgender Trend

“We are a group of parents based mainly in the UK, who are concerned about the current trend to diagnose ‘gender non-conforming’ children as transgender. We reject current conservative, reactionary, religious-fundamentalist views about sexuality and we have no political affiliation. We are also concerned about legislation which places transgender rights above the right to safety for girls and young women in public bathrooms and changing rooms.”

A campaign by trans activists against crowdfunding for the production of more copies ultimately failed:  Fundraising site re-instates campaign to send transgender resource booklet to schools Independent

Genspect International

“Our international organisation includes professionals, trans people, detransitioners, and parent groups who work together to advocate for a non-medicalised approach to gender diversity.”

Safe Schools Alliance UK

The Safe Schools Alliance is a group of concerned parents, grandparents, teachers, governors, health professionals, education professionals, and carers from more than 30 local education authority areas in the UK. We are from a wide range of backgrounds and have no religious or political affiliation.

The SSA campaign is focused on working with schools and educators to ensure that school policies meet the safeguarding needs of all students whilst taking into account the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010. We endeavour to provide clarity on the law and offer unbiased, evidence-based guidance and support where conflict between protected characteristics arises.

The physical, mental and emotional well-being of children is absolutely paramount. A collaborative approach with schools is essential to ensure a safe and supportive environment for children.

Our Duty

“Our Duty is an international support network for parents who wish to protect their children from gender ideology.

Gender ideology is a set of ideas that is leading many children to think that they are transgender. Adolescents in particular are prone to seeking refuge in a gender identity that is at odds with the reality of their sex. We are an evidence-based organisation.

Primarily, we facilitate peer support for parents of children with what has been called ROGD.

We put you in touch with other parents who want to protect their children from harm.”

Parents of ROGD Kids

“We are a group of parents whose children have suddenly—seemingly out of the blue—decided they identify strongly with the opposite sex and are at various stages in transitioning. This is a new phenomenon that has only recently been identified. Researchers are calling it Rapid-Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD), and it is epidemic among our most vulnerable youth.

Our children are young, naïve and impressionable, many of them are experiencing emotional or social difficulties. They are strongly influenced by their peers and by the media, who are promoting the transgender lifestyle as popular, desirable and the solution to all of their problems. And they are being misled by authority figures, such as teachers, doctors and counselors, who rush to “affirm” their chosen gender without ever questioning why.”

Gender Critical Support Board

“The Gender Critical Support Board is run for parents and families by parents and families who share the experience of coping with a child, teenager or young adult who believes she or he is transgender.
We are critical of the phenomenon of transgender youth growing at epidemic rates.
The forum provides support for parents and families who would like a thoughtful and cautious approach to intervention for their gender dysphoric child.”

Bayswater Support

“We are a group of parents in the UK and Ireland who have been brought together by our experiences of parenting children with gender dysphoria or who have declared a transgender identity.

Having looked for the best support for our children, we have found only the ‘affirmative’ approach to their new identity, backed up by affirmative environments in schools and elsewhere. We’ve found little scope to explore the new identity as a young person’s solution to trauma or distress, as a response to the challenges of adolescence, or to understand its role within underlying mental health or developmental contexts.

If your child has come out to you as trans and you’d like to talk with or meet other parents encountering this complex issue, get in touch – we’re here for you.”

Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine

We are a growing group of international professionals with expertise in a range of clinical and academic disciplines who share a deep concern over the lack of quality evidence behind the increasing use of frequently irreversible hormonal and surgical interventions as the first line of treatment for young people with gender-dysphoria.

Gender-dysphoric and questioning individuals deserve respect, compassion, and high-quality medical care. Join us in our mission to promote evidence-based care for gender dysphoric children, adolescents, and young adults that prioritizes long-term outcomes, and is free from undue political, ideological, religious or financial influences.

Partners for Ethical Care

Our mission is to raise awareness and support efforts to stop the unethical treatment of children by schools, hospitals, and mental and medical healthcare providers under the duplicitous banner of gender identity affirmation.

“In March, Stonewall published a new schools guide ‘An Introduction to Supporting LGBT young people’, replacing the guide of the same name published in 2015 which is no longer available from the website. The new guide goes further than any previous Stonewall schools guidance in several significant ways, the most serious and potentially harmful aspect of which is the whole section dedicated to children with SEND, including autism.

We have reviewed all ten Stonewall schools guides from 2015 to the present.”
