I'm so sorry. The internet has lured so many of our kids into this dangerous mess.

Welcome to the board. You'll find like-minded parents here who share your fears and concerns.

I hope you find the board helpful.

Best wishes.

I feel like I am going to throw up. Found out my sweet A+ daughter 16 thinks she's a man. Typical story. Right now trying to deal with blocking her access to [recreational] drugs which also came out of her "glitter family" associations, which I'm trying to cut her away from as well. So much swirling around I don't even know where to start.

I need to know how to convince her of reality. I'm seeing parallels between the religious cults we were warned of back in the 70s&80s and the trans affirming "glitter family" community. I think I'll try that tactic - to convince her she's in a cult, not in reality. I have no idea what to do or exactly what to say. I spend all day rehearsing little speeches.

Compounding all this is that I share custody and her other parent thinks affirming is a good idea to prevent suicide. I'm thinking she's already dead and that I'm not going to have her in my life anyway. What the hell is going on? I'm a good dad BUT FOR agreeing with a 16yo that a girl is a boy. I have such anger toward all the groomers who have been part of this.

I will never ever call her by a boy's name or pretend she's a man. Period.

Same. My daughter is only doing this at school but I recently discovered at work she is going by a male name. I've cried for days, she's always had depression issues especially when she gets knee deep in her cell phone but always has been very girly.

Welcome, DLM1446. I'm sorry your daughter is yet another who has been caught up in this.

Your account has been activated. I'm hoping you'll find the members-only section helpful. I know you will find it supportive. I guess I've worded it that way because actually helping our kids can be difficult, but the members here are wonderfully supportive. We help each other as best we can but there is not any sort of tried-and-true method for pulling kids out of the cult-like groupthink. 

Welcome. You are not alone.

Hello and welcome. I'm so sorry your daughter is yet another kid caught up in this mess.

Your account has been activated. You have certainly come to the right place for support. We also help each other as best we can, though there is no reliable course of action to take.

Again, welcome. You are not alone.

We are parents of a girl who came out as trans boy two and a half years ago. The usual story. We were stunned to get the "standard" three-page letter, clearly not written by our master of misspelling, a letter with full sentences, with links to "approved" sites, and all. We were stunned to learn that our high school, which requires our consent to cross the street to go to a fabric store, now changed our daughter's name and gender without uttering a word to us parents. Friends enthusiastically followed. Members of our religious community were ecstatic at an opportunity to parade their progressiveness - that is to say, yes, they started to call the cute girl they had known for years by a boy name - in our face. We had to buy her new clothes and yes, new underwear with the pocket upfront. But we refused medical transition. Now we are six months away from the dreaded 18th birthday. I feel as if I am staring at the oncoming train. The only good news is there are many new posts and research articles on the subject. THANK YOU to everyone who makes it happen.

Here's one I just found, with stat's - especially focused on Girl-to-boy transitions.
