This article is from Quillette, which is a conservative outlet, but they have some common-sense writings on their site. (not everything). This article is written by Debra Soh.
I’ve been saying this exact thing for quite a while now. Parents are pushing their children into being “trans” because they can’t handle the thought of them being “gay” or “lesbian”. It’s just a different kind of Gay Conversion Therapy. A particularly sick one.
Or they’re going along with their child’s “dysphoria” because they’ve been told their kid will “commit suicide” if they do not allow them to transition. The parents are victims, too.
