An official Target company Twitter account announced Thursday they had removed author Abigail Shrier’s book, “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” from the retailer’s “assortment” after an unverified Twitter user complained the book questions transgender ideology, especially the concept of irreversible hormonal and surgical experimentation on minors.
“I think the trans community deserves a response from @AskTarget @Target as to why they are selling this book about the ‘transgender epidemic sweeping the country.’ Trigger warning: Transphobia,” wrote the user.
Target thanked the user for bringing Shrier’s book to their attention.
Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. We have removed this book from our assortment.

Target did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment on the reason for removing the book, nor whether the book would be removed from store shelves and online.
Shrier’s book is not about sexual orientation or transgender adults.
