Advocates Protecting Children 
“…dedicated to fighting the gender industry, and especially its predation on children in the form of unethical social and medical transition for the sake of political and financial profit.”

Beyond WPATH [World Professional Association for Transgender Health]
“As mental health professionals, public health scientists, and allied organizations and individuals, we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the current Standards of Care released by WPATH (the World Professional Association for Transgender Health). We hold that WPATH has discredited itself.”

Canadian Gender Report “… a group of parents and professionals concerned about the medical transition of children, the introduction of gender identity teaching in our schools, and the changing legal landscape that replaces biological sex with the subjective notion of gender self-identity.”

Do No Harm
"We are a diverse group of physicians, healthcare professionals, medical students, patients, and policymakers united by a moral mission: Protect healthcare from a radical, divisive, and discriminatory ideology. We believe in making healthcare better for all – not undermining it in pursuit of a political agenda."

Enough Is Enough
"Making the Internet safer for children and families" (Has extensive material on trafficking, pornography, etc.)

Gender Dysphoria Support Network
“… an international group that aims to offer support to families of individuals affected by gender dysphoria. Our support network recognises the difficulties presenting the person with gender dysphoria and also recognises that friends and families can be in need of emotional understanding and support. “

Gender Exploratory Therapy Association (GETA)
“We believe people who are experiencing distress regarding gender or biological sex should have access to ethical, developmentally appropriate psychotherapy.
“We reject treatments that set out to change sexual orientation or gender identity. Practices that use coercive techniques have no place in health care.”

National Partnership for Women and Families
“To improve the lives of women and families by achieving equality for all women”

Our Duty
an international support network for parents who wish to protect their children from gender ideology.

Parents with Inconvenient Truths About Trans (PITT)
“Personal Stories and Essays by Parents Impacted by Transgender Ideology”

Parents of Rapid-Onset Gender Dysphoria [ROGD] Kids
“… a group of parents whose children have suddenly—seemingly out of the blue—decided they identify strongly with the opposite sex and are at various stages in transitioning.”

Partners for Ethical Care
“… a non-partisan, all-volunteer, grassroots nonprofit organization.. to raise awareness and support efforts to stop the unethical treatment of children by schools, hospitals, and mental and medical healthcare providers under the duplicitous banner of gender identity affirmation.  We believe that no child is born in the wrong body.”   

Protect Childhood [Ireland]

Save the Tomboys
“... to raise awareness about homophobia in the gender movement and “the mass medicalization of tomboys, who are disproportionately likely to grow up lesbian.”

Transition Justice
“We connect detransitioners and others negatively affected by gender medicine with legal assistance. If you have been harmed by transition-related interventions, please contact us today. We can set up a consultation to learn more about you and how we may be able to help.”

By developing a contaminated, stigmatized identity, the child victim takes the evil of the abuser into herself and thereby preserves her primary attachments to her parents. Because the inner sense of badness preserves a relationship, it is not readily given up even after the abuse has stopped; rather, it becomes a stable part of the child's personality structure.

Significant strides have been made by women throughout the world to challenge the deeply embedded misogyny that has plagued the lives of women and girls for millennia. Advancements (which are far from universal) such as the right to vote, to own property, to obtain a divorce, to control our own reproduction, and many other human rights have been achieved by women with great sacrifice and struggle. Nevertheless, the threat of censure, internalized as a template of fear and self-loathing, continues to enforce the physical and psychological silencing of women and girls, even in privileged cultural contexts.

It is difficult for men to measure the enormous extent of social discrimination that seems insignificant from the outside and whose moral and intellectual repercussions are so deep in woman that they appear to spring from an original nature. The man most sympathetic to women never knows her concrete situation fully.”
