*For those in Sydney, the event will take place at 10AM
Bettina will talk with two parents of young teenage sons who suddenly announced they were transgender. One is a mother of a 14-year-old whose son was persuaded he was in the wrong body after being subjected to the online influence of a thirty-something trans activist. The other is a father of a very ill college student whose doctors were prepared to further risk his health with hormone therapy after they decided he was gender dysphoric.
Most public attention on the current transgender craze has focused on girls, yet these two parents are part of a large group of 75 parents of trans-identifying boys under 19, mostly from U.S., but also Canada, UK, Europe and Australia.
The discussion will focus on aspects of our culture which might make these young males susceptible to rapid onset gender transition.
These parents will give valuable insight into the pressures they faced as they struggle to stop their sons being persuaded to take hormone treatment which could put them at risk of a variety of medical complications, including infertility.
Most of these parents are forced to conceal their identity as they face intense hostility from the industry of health professionals, school counsellors and doctors captured by trans ideology.
