Target Reverses Decision to Remove Book Critical of Transgender Craze

Last week, Target retailers announced that they would remove a book called “Irreversible Damage” by Abigail Shrier, a critical look at the transgender trend and how it is affecting children who are not yet old enough to make informed decisions about their own healthcare – particularly as it regards a subject as fraught with controversy as the unscientific concept of “being trapped in the wrong body.” After considerable controversy, however, Target went back on its decision, announcing Friday that they would be stocking the book after all.

“Yesterday, we removed a book from based on feedback we received,” Target announced on Twitter. “We want to offer a broad assortment for our guests and are adding this book back to We apologize for any confusion.”

According to Amazon, the book takes a refreshingly skeptical look at the wave of teen girls suddenly deciding that they are actually boys.

“Until just a few years ago, gender dysphoria—severe discomfort in one’s biological sex—was vanishingly rare. It was typically found in less than .01 percent of the population, emerged in early childhood, and afflicted males almost exclusively,” reads the book’s description.

“But today,” it continues, “whole groups of female friends in colleges, high schools, and even middle schools across the country are coming out as ‘transgender.’ These are girls who had never experienced any discomfort in their biological sex until they heard a coming-out story from a speaker at a school assembly or discovered the internet community of trans ‘influencers.’”

The controversy led UC Berkeley professor Grace Levery to go on Twitter and encourage people to steal and then burn Shrier’s book.

“Since some ppl have misunderstood my tone, and censorship is an important matter and as a public educator I have a duty to be precise, let me clarify: I do NOT advocate defacing library books. I DO encourage followers to steal Abigail Shrier’s book and burn it on a pyre,” Levery wrote. “Plz make sure you use a safe pyre, and that you have an extinguisher to hand. Be safe, when you are burning books. Remember: all you’re doing is removing a commodity from circulation—much as one might destroy a contaminated crop, or take action if a distributor failed to do so.”

Few things get the leftists more upset than hearing even a whisper of criticism about their new transgender movement. Why is that, do you think? Could it be that these claims fall apart under even the slightest serious scrutiny?

No, no, we’re sure that’s not it…

What do you think?

  1. Ah yes,,,,let the book burnings begin! Finally someone with enough balls to do the right thing, and they WILL be destroyed by “socail” media.

  2. Didn’t the Nazis do this in Germany back in the 1930’s or so? They took books, that did not agree with their philosophy, and burned them in big piles. So does this woman agree with the Nazis thinking; that if you do not like it, then you have the right to destroy it?

  5. God made MAN and God made WOMEN there is nothing in between America is going NUTS and the stupid brainwashing fools from the Left are as nuts as ever. Time to leave People what they are made of from GOD ALMIGHTY attempting to change someone not born that way is against all of God’s plans, and the queers/Lesbians wake-up you belong to God first and man and women are the way of life not man and man or women with women what your doing will effect all Children in the wrong way end it now and become a God loving human as God made you to be

  6. Mr. Golding, I read your comments with interest. I am a retired Southern Baptist pastor who has had some experience with these types of things. Do you believe God has a sense of humor? If not, how do you explain the Dodo bird. That poor thing looks like God used left over parts from all of his creations.

    When I was 40 now 35 years ago I came out of my self-imposed closet. I am a very firm believer that God created me, I certainly did not choose a life style where someone would make fun of me. I also noticed you used the word “queer” in your comments. Growing up did anyone ever call you something that either made you mad or embaressed you? I have and that word was “queer.” It is fine for you to express your opinion but until you walk in my shoes you have no idea of how you would feel. God teaches us several things. We are all his children. He teaches us to LOVE everyone unconditionaly. Far too many times we profess love but we do not practice loving everyone. Did Jesus say, okay we can accept him once he stops doing this or that? He did not. He took people where he found them. Matthew was at a table collecting taxes for the government ideal job in the middle of the Jews. Peter and Andrew were fishermen and from what we know about fishermen, sometimes they can be quite coarse. Is it possible for you to love anyone where you find them? Are you able to love a gay man or woman? Until you can do these simple things, you are far from ready of being able to understand what people have experienced in their lives. I do not adhere as to whether I am right or left because the only side upon which I stand is the side that my Lord and Saviour gave me. Remember He was thrown out of the temple because His teaching did not agree with the status quo. But remember His last words on the cross, Father forgive them, they know not what they do.

    You make no point to give children the ability to understand more than you think. Their opinions will waver thru the years as they grow up. I think it is time for you to get on your knees and talk to God. Notice I said talk. We are His children and we need to remember that as we pray. The Lord’s Prayer is an example of how to talk to God, it is NOT a formula prayer. Repeating it over and over is not what God wants us to do. I heard an old song many, many years ago. It was the story of an old farmer in a cornfield. He talked to God about his crop needing some rain, he talked to God about his wife as she was not feeling well, he talked to God about his children/grandchildren and he went on and on just talking to His Father. You know many, many times we carry a cross to the altar as it has become so heavy we cannot bear it. There is another song and I believe its title is, “Leave it There.” That is exactly what we are supposed to do with all of our problems. But we are supposed to thank God for what we have . Right at the moment I am seeking God’s direction about buying a new car. I firmly believe when it is God’s time, I will get the car I need whether it is a Cadillic or a VW bug. When I let Him chose, it will be a car upon which I can depend. I have a soon to be a 21 year old car that runs as well as a new one because it runs on God’s power. Of course, I am expected to have it serviced at regular times, wash it once in a while, have it tuned up when needed. I think you get my point. It is a relationship between God and I. When you have done some of these things, then let me know what God has told you.

    • First off, we are not all children of God. We are his creation but the path we choose will determine whom we belong to. John 17:12 and 2Thessalonians 2:3 speak of the son(s) of perdition, the one who does NOT belong to God. This would be one who decides what God really meant versus what His Word says.
      I pray you go back to Gods Word and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal what it means. You are Loved by God, but we do not always follow him as we should and that is the difference between being Gods child and not being one.

  7. mr Crawford, I find it a little bizarre that you were a southern baptist preacher. do you not read the entire Bible? How can you explain the scripture that speaks to Sodom and Gomorrah? the Bible specifically states that sodomy is an abomination. Man was not made to lay with a man, nor was a woman to lie with a woman. your way of rationalizing your failure to accept that you were made in GODs image borders on blasphemy. I don’t care what ends the QUEER community goes to, nor the “religions” that approve this behavior say, it is WRONG. you can say GOD loves all his children, and this is true, but I can’t believe he loves those who deliberately defy his teachings. it is a good thing that all people dont believe as you, or this world would have ended. two men cannot create life, nor can two women. there is nothing correct about your lifestyle, regardless of your attempts to justify it. do you honestly think a child knows the difference between being a boy or a girl? they say what they feel will make them fit in. they say what they hear their parents say. just like when the gay presidential candidate kissed his queer “wife” on television, the little 9 year old boy went to him and said I’m GAY just like you. where do you think he got that idea??? he was trying to fit in and feel important. children need to be just that. anyone who allows their child to wear a dress, or girls underpants should be charged with child abuse. they are not fit to be a parent. they will have to answer to GOD at sometime in their life. I would not want to have to confess that I intentionally ruined a child by inflicting my own inadequacies on a precious child. you are right about one thing, GOD did make you. HOWEVER, you chose your own path.

  8. You were a Pastor? WERE is a strong work, thank God your NOT anymore with your outrageous ideas, were you removed because of your misunderstanding of the Bible? Or were you one that follows your own acts? I think it’s a good think that your not a Pastor anymore for your knowledge seems a LOT off the true facts, “God” as I said, and as it is written, in the very beginning made Man and Women and I don’t remember anything other then that so if I’m missing a verse please enlighten me to what you have said, Bible is the facts not a make believe idea as it seems you are going. I feel sorry for you, and misrepresenting a true Pastor I had a Pastor tell me this a long time age, If it isn’t in the Bible then It isn’t a fact, try that on maybe you better ask for forgiveness from the Lord God as I will Pray for you to re read the Bible and the facts.

    • Mr Crawford is a lost Pastor that is why he isn’t anymore retired or asked to leave either way I think you as Gabby said reread the Bible and find the verse that has a human being other then Man and Women I sure never saw that verse, so being a retired Pastor you will have to tell me where it is at in the Bible.

  9. target continually goes against anything that is moral and Biblical. Yes, you are brainwashing children who are too young to even know what they want. Parents should know better and so should target when it comes to selling this garbage. We will continue to BOYCOT them.
