when we are younger,
we did many things without really thinking it through.
i remember when i wanted to move out at 16,
with no job,
into an apartment with friends at the time.
the selling point?
Big ass speakers in the living room so we can party
needless to font,
that didn’t happen and i stopped fuckin with them months later.
well according to a recent article on the “daily mail“,
some folks in the transgender community,
who opted to have gender reassignment surgery,
are in regret over transitioning now.
who is pictured above,
stopped identifying as male and is allegedly helping others de-transition.
this is the story via “daily mail“…
Hundreds’ of transgender people who have transitioned want to un-do their surgery, a campaigner who decided to stop identifying as male has revealed.
Charlie Evans, 28, from Newcastle, was born female but identified as male for almost ten years before deciding to identify as a woman again.
‘Hundreds’ of people have contacted her, including 30 in Newcastle alone, asking for guidance around detransitioning – the process of becoming the gender they were born – after she went public with her decision last year, she told Sky News.
‘I’m in communication with 19 and 20-year-olds who have had full gender reassignment surgery who wish they hadn’t, and their dysphoria hasn’t been relieved, they don’t feel better for it,‘ Ms Evans said.
The people who get in contact with her are usually in their 20s, ‘mostly same-sex attracted’ and often autistic, she added.
Ms Evans is now setting up The Detransition Advocacy Network to help people who feel the same way she did.
according to “meaww.com” tho,
there maybe some flaws in charlie’s story:
While there is no concrete data on how many trans people have come to regret their decision to transition, the Daily Mail quotes a spokesperson for Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust—which offers gender identity services for children as young as three—as saying, “Decisions about physical interventions made in our care are arrived at after a thorough exploration process. While some of our patients may decide not to pursue physical treatment or drop out of treatment, the experience of regret described here is rarely seen.”
Meanwhile, Evans is being criticized by many trans people for her claims that she had once transitioned who said taking testosterone does not count as transitioning. They also pointed out that her charity is not registered anywhere and that she even took part in anti-trans protest at Manchester Pride.
so i have a question:
Is this something that one can de-transition back easily?
i feel like some folks need to think carefully for big life changes.
with some major decisions,
i feel like once you do it,
there might be no turning back.
whatever the truth in this story is,
i hope those who want to de-transition are able to do so with little to no issue.
