Segment 2 & 3 – Lost in Trans Nation: A Child Psychiatrist’s Guide Out of the Madness
“Throughout our country, atrocities are taking place in doctor’s offices and hospital operating rooms. Physically healthy children and adolescents are being permanently disfigured and sometimes sterilized. Those youth say they’re transgender, and we—their parents, teachers, therapists, and doctors—are supposed to agree with their self-diagnosis and take a back seat as they make the most consequential decision of their lives: to alter their bodies in order to, we are told, “align” them with their minds.”  Miriam Grossman, MD joins us to discuss her new book, “Lost in Trans Nation.”  (Originally aired November 17, 2023)
