Genspect is an international alliance of professional groups, parent groups, and others who advocate for a rational and informed approach to gender issues.
Across the world, clinicians and other professionals have serious misgivings about the “affirmative” approach. Parents are concerned that their kids are not receiving appropriate treatment and support. And many trans and detrans people share these fears, believing that a better model of care is possible.
Genspect unites these voices. We represent 19 different organizations in 17 different countries. We’re not just speaking for a few: we speak for thousands.

A lot of parents worry about the undue influence of gender theory on educational and medical institutions working with young people. For many parents, this is not a philosophical debate: their children have been very badly impacted by the denial of the significance of biological sex, promoted by gender theory.
At best, this unscientific stance is reinforcing regressive sex stereotypes and eroding female safe spaces. At worst, it’s guiding some of the most vulnerable towards medically and surgically altering their bodies. We’re campaigning for informed decisions that prioritize long-term health.
We want to provide a platform for a more honest and open conversation.

We unequivocally oppose the transition of children, and young people under 25 – the age at which the brain reaches full maturity. When it comes to vulnerable young adults, such as those with neurodiverse conditions, we believe that this age may be closer to 30.
We are funded via our public fundraiser, and from private contributions, all of which come from parents with gender-questioning kids. We are committed to protecting the identities of all parents we work with, unless they choose to waive the right to their own anonymity.
What we do:
There are thousands of parents whose children are questioning their gender. Many of these mothers and fathers just don’t believe their kids are getting the right information. In other cases, young people have come to identify once again with their biological sex: parents want those stories to be heard, too. Our parent testimonials share a handful of these stories.
Genspect is uniting parent groups from all around the world. The money we raise will help us to run campaigns and meet our overheads, so we can work to get these families’ stories into the mainstream media. We’re officially angry, and it’s time for us to act. Help us to help you.
