Many activists in the media claim that therapies that did not "affirm" an individual's transgender identity (which the article refers to as "gender-identity conversion efforts / "GICE") lead to severe distress and even suicide attempts. These findings have been used to promote legislative bans on non-affirmative therapies worldwide. This is false and explained at length here.
How did we get here? Let’s start with who is funding this medical catastrophe. Jennifer Bilek has done extensive research on this. We encourage every parent to read this thoroughly.

Information on the money behind this movement can be found here and here.
