Losing Our Daughters: A Review of Irreversible Damage by Abigail Shrier – Applied Heart  “While many of Shrier’s conclusions align with conservative Christian beliefs, Shrier herself is neither a Christian nor a conservative, and has noted in interviews how surprised she was by the pushback her book received in Leftist circles (she’s the only one). Shrier also makes it a point to tell readers that her book’s concerns are limited to underage girls. Adults who choose a transgender lifestyle are, for her, a different story, and she appears to generally support these folks in their choice. My positive review should not be read as a wholesale endorsement of Shrier’s views.”
