GenerAzioneD is born, an Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as "trans"

The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association was established GeneraAzioneD

The primary aim of the association is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GeneraAzioneD aims to promote the necessary transparency so that the best possible assistance is guaranteed to the people involved. 

GeneraAzioneD in fact, it was born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children who, often from one day to the next and without any manifestation in childhood, identified themselves as transgender. 

The association opposes all forms of discrimination and today welcomes those interested - on a personal and/or professional level - in knowing and sharing news on an exponentially growing phenomenon, promoting the making available of experiences and/or skills of its members (legal, medical, organizational, communicative, etc.) with a view to encouraging the development of an informed, conscious and constructive debate. To do this you need to start asking questions again.

What is gender dysphoria?

A condition of great psychological suffering characterized by a marked and persistent feeling of incongruity between the perceived gender and one's biological sex.

Understanding what it has become, how it is presented and addressed in reference to children, adolescents and young adults is the reason for the birth of GenerAzioneD and its reference channels.

From Generation Z to Generation D?

“Gender Dysphoria”, previously “Gender Identity Disorder”, has always affected a very small percentage of the adult and predominantly male population – 0.005-0.014% – and was characterized by infantile onset. 

In recent years, with the explosion in numbers of teenagers turning to gender clinics, everything has changed.

In 2018, the Tavistock Clinic in London - the only public center dedicated to the treatment of minors and an international point of reference until July 2022, when it was decided to close following the critical issues encountered by a independent review -, recorded a 4400% increase in requests from girls compared to the previous decade. 

The increase in cases, the reversal of the composition from predominantly male to predominantly female, the change in the age of onset from infantile to pubertal/adolescent and the frequent absence of manifestations in childhood have occurred throughout the Western world.

Faced with such substantial changes, many members of the scientific community consider unsatisfactory the explanations of those who would like to justify them solely with greater openness and acceptance on the part of society. In fact, even if we were to ignore the exponential increase in numbers, the shift in prevalence from male to female, the change in age of onset and the absence of manifestations in childhood would still remain unjustified.

You will find these and many other questions on the website GeneraAzioneD. The answers are not always simple or unambiguous but perhaps, to understand such a complex phenomenon, it is necessary to begin to admit that there are important gaps in research and studies, great divisions in the international scientific community and that lots of news  they do not reach the general public. Some important signs of change in this sense are arriving, for example with the publication of an article on New York Times  in which the risks of using puberty blockers are finally being acknowledged for young people with gender dysphoria. Another important report is that of Reuteurs, “Why detransitioners are critical to the science of gender care.” Through a wide selection of national and international articles in translation, testimonials, interviews, links to  documentaries and to others organizations GeneraAzioneD hopes to contribute to the creation of an informed debate, in a society that guarantees adults the freedom to make informed decisions and younger people to grow and mature and then make their own choices without the burden of an experimental medical treatment undertaken early.
