A trans teen protesting against the launch of an anti-trans book was dragged outside of the Sela Meir publishing office in Ramat Gan, a Tel Aviv suburb.
The Book Launch
Hundreds of LGBTQ+ activists gathered to protest against the launch of the Hebrew translation of the book “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters.”
Its All About Gender Dysphoria
“Irreversible Damage” has been at the center of controversy since its publication. The book suggests that gender dysphoria in young people is a result of peer influence and social trends.
Trans Activists Organized Protests
Activists raised concerns about the harmful messages promoted by the book, leading to the cancellation and relocation of the protest event multiple times.
They Gathered Outside the Publishing Office
Despite the challenges faced in organizing the event, LGBTQ+ demonstrators came together outside the Sela Meir publishing office.

Waving Pride and Israeli flags, they expressed their solidarity and determination to fight against bigotry and misinformation. Chanting slogans and banging drums, the protesters sent a message of support for transgender rights and equality.
Trans Activist Breaks In
During the event, a 17-year-old named Ayelet broke into the office and approached Abigail Shrier, the author of the book, but was tackled and forcibly removed from the venue.
They Were Shouting ‘Freak’
Videos of the incident went viral on social media, where Ayelet could be seen being dragged away by security officials, and people inside the venue were shouting “Freak.”
Activist Shared Concerns
Following the incident, Ayelet, who reportedly uses they/them pronouns, spoke to local newspapers, emphasizing the need to stand against the exportation of bigotry from the United States to Israel.
It Highlighted an Important Matter
They highlighted the importance of autonomy and decision-making for Trans individuals, emphasizing that their parents love and accept them for who they are.
The Book Is Spreading Misinformation
One of the protest organizers, Amy Roseman, condemned “Irreversible Damage,” claiming that it spreads misinformation and discourages parents from accepting their transgender children.
It Promoted Harmful Notion
Roseman characterized the book as filled with lies and hate, promoting the harmful notion that transgenderism is a condition that can be cured.
