Dr. Michelle A Cretella eloquently spoke at a recent meeting of the AAPS concerning the current transgender phenomenon. Her review of a recent book on the subject caught my eye. This is an important subject and the public is very confused. I observed this abnormality in a friend’s son. He didn’t understand that he will never fully function sexually as a woman. His doctor never had apprised him of this. He was shocked when I informed him of some very awkward situations he will experience when living in a female environment. Confusion reigns.

Editor Ruth Barrett is a courageous radical feminist who has defied political orthodoxy in publishing
Female Erasure. The book is an eclectic, incisive, well-referenced analysis of the transgendering of society and its harmful impact upon women and children. Not only did Barrett swim headlong into the transgender tsunami, braving an onslaught of harassment, but she also reached across the political divide when she invited me, president of the pro-life American College of Pediatricians, to submit my scientific
statement on gender dysphoria as chapter 12 of her anthology.
Radical feminist and conservative thought overlap not only on trans-genderism, but also on pornography,
prostitution, sex trafficking, the sexualization of children, and the negative consequences of society’s embrace of sex stereotypes. All of these, in turn, converge in the politics of gender ideology, as Female Erasure reveals. . .
