An exemplary and detailed analysis of a place whose doctors, Barnes writes, most commonly describe it as “mad”. This is a powerful and disturbing book’ – Financial Times FiLiA: It sounds like these clinicians were put in almost an impossible position and in certain cases, definitely the empathy that you have for the participants in your book shines through. Even though sometimes it's infuriating. Because you kind of wish that you can have a more clear-cut story, of heroes and villains, and so on and so forth. So in that sense, it can sometimes be a slightly frustrating read. But I wondered if you would mind talking to us a little bit about what your discoveries were about the child safeguarding aspects in particular. Because I think one of the other things that this book has that's really important is discussion with Sonia Appleby after she had won her case.

To begin with, the extent of the GIDS’ involvement with the pressure groups Mermaids, GIRES and Gendered Intelligence right from the start is staggering. These are political campaign groups, two of which are run by parents, with very set ideas and beliefs based on the unscientific concept of innate gender identity. They are not politically impartial. As Mermaids became more politicised and extreme in their belief in gender identity ideology, so did the GIDS.

This is a great article from Transgender Trend. And I am certain the same will apply to the author mentioned although I have not read it. There are however two sides to every story and I wish to present mine. My story starts long ago (1940) when my mother took (well was it actually?) a drug, a man-made chemical, a supplement it has been called all those names, but whatever it was. Over the next three decades until it was banned (1971) this substance has caused a multitude of medical conditions that are attributed to it.FiLiA: You include lots of different perspectives and lots of different voices from people who were actually there, who were actually involved, and had direct experience. So it's not a sort of commentary from folks on the side lines. Dr Anna Hutchinson, in particular, plays quite a large role in the book. She kind of opens and closes the work with that question: ‘Are we harming children?’ You do seem to be quite careful about choosing a range of different stories with a range of different outcomes in terms of kids who've actually been through GIDS themselves and have different perspectives, and some of them seem quite positive. So do you think it's fair then to characterise what happened at GIDS as a “serious medical scandal”? And in that case, why? Not only is this pathway wrong, but unlike claims made to the contrary, it almost certainly is hurting children and we simply aren’t hearing enough of the detransition/regret stories (and neither are they) because it has turned into a bizarre political and ideological battle, where instead of encouraging free thinking, doctors and providers are being forced to STOP thinking and prescribe to the status quo, or find somewhere else to work.
