Michele Moore and Heather Brunskell-Evans are British academics and feminists who recently edited the book, “Inventing Transgender Children and Young People” (2019). With David they discuss the rapid rise in gender dysphoria and transgenderism in the UK, including the dominant role that transgender organizations have played in education and treatment of the vulnerable youth who are literally not comfortable in their own skin, and in the censorship and deplatforming of critics. The discussion covers sex versus gender versus gender roles, and the emerging issue of detransitioners, the formerly transgender youth who are returning to their natal sex, often missing body parts such has breasts or testicles. This is the second compilation by this pair on the same subject, the first was “Transgender Children: Born in Your Own Body” (2018). The discussion ends by considering whether the wave of transgender ideology and affirmation has peaked, and those concerned with the physical and mental health of children, and the protection of women, are making progress in resisting an ideology that demands that people “perform gender” and eventually have surgery in a usually futile effort to resolve deep-seated traumas and other psychological issues.
