Together, we discuss issues such as:

-- The phenomenon of female teens/young adults self-IDing as trans. -- something that has never occurred before

-- The issues faced by boys/ M teens/young men who ID as trans.

-- The role of social media and social contagion -- including the proliferation of vile You Tube videos/Tumblr posts

-- The increasingly young age of children being IDed as trans., and the hazards of Puberty Blockers such as Lupron

-- What role ADHD/ASD/OCD and other comorbid mental health conditions play in IDing as trans.

-- The increasing number of detransitioners; their stories and what that means for our children

-- The search for allied (or at least) objective doctors/psychiatrists/therapists

-- Alternative therapies/treatments to avoid Lupron/HRT/surgery

-- The news

I was just told about this site.  I have a 13 year old who, in the last 3 months, told us she is transgender.  We are being supportive but it literally, came out of nowhere.  She claims, she's been thinking about this for awhile but we had no clue.  Everything's happening so fast and we are overwhelmed.  Some days, I think, it's phase.  Some days, I don't know.  I hope that I can find support here.  Thanks

Hi Nikkfitt,

Welcome. I'm sorry to hear about what your family is going through. Yes, you will find support here; your story sounds very familiar: a child/teen claiming to be transgender out of the blue, after a happy earlier childhood, never giving even a hint that they wished to be the opposite sex. It seems there are many possible causes, everything from social contagion and autism to sexual assault, fear of growing up, and rejecting outdated gender roles. 

Your membership has now been activated and you can join the rest of the forum. Hope to see you there.
