Every other day I'm made aware of yet another ideology that throws children to the wolves.

It's so disheartening.

I've always suspected that the cries of "we must protect the children" was complete bullshit. But it's never been more apparent than it is now.

Great work again, Abigail.

Thanks for all you're doing to try to help the kids of today.

You're pushing a boulder up a hill, to say the least.

We're trying so hard to deny the obvious; the wealthy and powerful want sexual access to the young and pretty. That's always been true: court eunuchs were common in China; imperial Roman elites had lots of sex with children; corrupt clergy did too; the Ottoman harems were no different; ISIS and the Taliban prize child brides today. Jeffery Epstein was popular among our elites for a reason.

We're giving the benefit of the doubt too willingly on this issue. The wealthy and educated are sexualizing children today; do we really think that's accidental? The most vocal proponents of the LGBTQIA2S++ agenda aren't in in for human rights. They just want to have sex with kids. I realize this is hard for many to accept, but the evidence is becoming to voluminous to ignore.

Please note: I'm not saying everyone that pushes LGBT is a pervert. There are certainly a lot of well intentioned people who drunk the Kool-Aid and think it's all about inclusion and acceptance. They are just useful idiots of the real agenda though.

Abigail, I just reupped by subscription. You are a brave woman.

Well done, Abigail. I was a foster parent 30 years ago and took pride in the way we were able to provide stability for vulnerable and confused children. I am horrified at the ideology they embrace now in CA. Many children will be harmed before this turns around.

Got to get you back on Bill Maher because he’s the closest this story will get to MSM.

Never trust a person named “Weiner”.

Weiner may be ‘moderate’ in some regards, especially if getting campaign donations, but in reality this guy is one sick evil person gloating about his gay status and being abusive when questioned. Such a horrible man and of course from San Francisco, a city of porn and immorality.

Weiner truly and unabashedly suppports grooming and trafficking

Foster youth ID as trans at a very high rate. But they are surrendered, on average, between age 2 and 3. Their issues stem from early abandonment, trauma, neglect, and abuse, not 'gender.' These are not kids who get kicked out of their houses because of 'identity,' as Weiner fantasizes. This law shows no understanding of developmental reality, and is based on activist 'studies' which play fast and loose with the facts.

The nexus of sex-trafficking, drag queens in schools, plus children put in foster care if they express cross-sex ideation is predictable, if you talk to trans widows, that is, the ex-wives of men who ideate a female persona. How is it that we can predict this woo? The therapists and doctors we accompanied our husbands to claimed you can change sex and if you don't stay as a loyal wife, the fault is yours for 'breaking up the family." This is ongoing, more young mothers in my shoes are contacting me to act as their voices. There is no such legitimate thing as "true trans." The science is not there. Link to commentary on Dr. Stephen B. Levine's expert testimony on this point:

Excellent article, Abigail. Can't wait for your book.

I'm an atheist who doesn't believe in the supernatural. But Scott Wiener sure sounds like the living embodiment of the devil incarnate.

Wow. He smartly aligns himself with centrists on other issues which in turn gives him a pass on this stuff. But net-net this is a really bad person.

Again, the remarkable and courageous Abigail Shrier composes a searing indictment of the horror affecting our youth.

At some point, having a bad conscience for their misdeeds may haunt these individuals.

History, as the final judge of our deeds, will not be kind to those who knowingly harm children.

Scott Weiner is a predator groomer. Expose plume health, which mails hormones and surgery support letters across state lines: https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-do-no-harm-part-2

This is...awful. Thank You for shining a light on it.

Progressives seem to believe in a lot of things, but data and statistics aren't two of them. Not wacky enough, I guess.

On the PITT Substack, they talk about Sage, a girl who ran away from home while transitioning to male. Sage ended up being sexually assaulted and sex trafficked. Twice. https://open.substack.com/pub/pitt/p/sages-law?r=2js06&utm_medium=ios&utm_campaign=post
