Desist, Detrans, Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult, Maria Keffler, 2021. Available at Walmart, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.
'Blindsided when a child suddenly announces a transgender identity, many parents today find their families under assault by an insidious predator: the billion-dollar gender industry. "Do you want a live son (daughter) or a dead daughter (son)?" Nearly every parent whose child has fallen into the gender industry's clutches has heard the same emotionally manipulative threat: agree to your child's immediate social and medical transition, or prepare for the child's suicide. Schools, healthcare providers, politicians, and an aggressive activism machine are coercing people-and especially children-down a destructive path of medicalization in the name of transgender medicine. Caught in the maelstrom of gender identity politics, medical experimentation, and a cultural zeitgeist that paints the family as an oppressor, parents are lied to from every quarter, and told they must consent to their children's gender transition and medicalization. But there is a different-and saner-path. A growing cadre of parents are saying, "No," to the gender machine's unethical and deceptive narrative. Based on sound principles of psychology and child development, as well as on strategies used by parents who have pulled their children back from the gender cult's destructive ideology, Desist, Detrans, & Detox: Getting Your Child Out of the Gender Cult provides a roadmap to help families navigate the treacherous terrain of gender indoctrination, and bring their children back to reality and safety.'

‘Transitioning’ Procedures Don’t Help Mental Health, Largest Dataset Shows--Ryan T. Anderson (8/3/2020)
"So, the bottom line: The largest dataset on sex-reassignment procedures—both hormonal and surgical—reveals that such procedures do not bring the promised mental health benefits.
