Activists claim that ROGD is not a real thing yet some parents insist that ROGD perfectly describes something that they’re seeing in their teenagers. We explore this new phenomenon of adolescent-onset gender questioning, how it arises and how it impacts families.

Socially mediated mental health phenomena from different generations and other parts of the world shed light on this controversial issue.
