Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters by Abigail Shrier is a book topping the Amazon and Google Play market that affirms abusive trans-exclusive rhetoric that has already been used against young transgender men to invalidate their experiences and incite abuse. In Amazon's case, Shrier's book is the very first result when you search up "transgender", sitting at the top of a sea of other titles that promote similar harmful calls to action.

Shrier makes a number of egregious leaps of logic in order to invalidate transgender boys to suit her conservative values. A frequent false-association she creates is in regards to the attempted suicide rate of trans people coinciding with regretting transitioning or even expressing the urge to detransition. She blatantly ignores the fact these statistics much more coincide with transgender individuals feeling ostracized and attacked in a modern society that insists something is wrong with them. According to a study run by the UCLA School of Law, 98% of transgender individuals who claimed to have faced discrimination within the past year they engaged in the study considered suicide that year. In the same study, 30% of transgender individuals who reported being physically attacked in a public place reported attempting suicide. Transgender people's struggles with mental health have much more to do with how society treats them and less to do with their struggles with identity. Shrier ignores this.

I am calling for the book's immediate removal from everywhere it is sold. The blatant misinformation and hate speech that endangers the lives of thousands of growing transgender boys. The removal of the text will protect those men from abusive parents who may use the text to justify emotional abuse.
