From the publisher description:
"Gender Hurts examines the wider social and political context and implications of the phenomenon of transgenderism. Jeffreys and Gottschalk propose that gender in western culture is socially constructed as the basis of male domination and that the concept of gender has the potential to hurt many. They argue that in transgenderism the hurt can take several forms; psychologically, physically and socially. This book explore how the phenomenon is affecting people’s lives from exploring the implications for the children and adults who are diagnosed as having gender identity disorder, to the survivors’ movement who claim to have been misdiagnosed, and the impact on the partners of transgenders."

This book will cherry pick the worst examples of pain that surrounds the process of transitioning and will be used as a voice of authority in denying medical, psychological and social services for individuals with sex dysphoria. It is not a work of science even though it will be cited as a scientific source.
