just wrote a rebuttal to that horribly misinformed @PsychToday piece from last week: "Mass Psychogenic Illness: The Latest Make-Believe Cause of #Transgender Identity" – it's on Medium, so please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it!

...also, the piece is not monetized, as I wanted it to be as accessible as possible. if you appreciate that I make essays like this for free, please consider supporting me on Patreon! patreon.com/juliaserano/ov…
re: two misconceptions about my new essay: 1) I did not address certain claims made in the @PsychToday article (re: "peer clusters", social media influence, etc.) b/c I already addressed these in depth in my #ROGD essay: medium.com/@juliaserano/e… #transgender #psychology #LGBTQ
2) someone presumed I'm arguing that *every single teen* who comes out as trans will ID that way for life. I've never said that. Rather, I believe it's best to let kids explore their genders & decide for themselves (i.e., gender-affirming approach):
...a reminder that (unlike some Medium pieces) none of these essays are monetized, as I want them to be as accessible as possible. so please share widely! & if you appreciate that I make these pieces for FREE, please consider supporting me on Patreon! patreon.com/juliaserano/ov…
FYI the Gender Dysphoria Affirmative Working Group have just published a response to the aforementioned @PsychToday article - you can read it here:
