Girls removing their breasts
Transactivist propaganda invites girls uncomfortable with their female form to compress their breasts with special bands (binders), the first step towards the final mastectomy.

On how many fronts can one fight alone? American psychiatrist Miriam Grossman, who treats the despair of these families, tells the story.
Keira Bell, with her battle against the large London gender clinic Tavistock, has become the symbol of the thousands of young women mutilated and damaged for life because they do not conform to the stereotypes of femininity. Today we tell you what happens to parents of girls like Keira Bell through the words of a psychiatrist who has one of these mothers under treatment. Miriam Grossman is a child psychiatrist who has been working for decades on the problem of the sexualisation of children -of [...]
