On the MTV show called "True Life" there were two transgendered individuals that publicly detransitioned and it was jumped on by those that publicly are opposed to any help for transsexual children. They claim these two changed their minds as adults but the simple truth is neither of them were ever under care as transsexual children. Here is the link to the full MTV video.
In many ways I feel sorry for these two young people. The MTF transgender individual is unquestionably a gay young man who somehow found a therapist that allowed him to do what he did although in all honesty there is really not much anyone can do about adults, over 18, getting implants and transitioning which is what this young man did well after his teen years. He obviously bought into the transgender mantra that you can be anything you want to be without ramifications. There should have been alarm bells going off when he decided for implants, big ones by the way, with no thoughts of SRS.
SRS was never in this person's thought process. He was upset because he could not find love as a man in a dress with a penis. What did he expect? His only option would be a tranny chaser and that has risks. He detransitioned to be a gay man which should tell everyone he was a gay man to start with and never transsexual but according to transgender activist certainly transgender.
The FTM individual started testosterone but she was never a he just a confused lesbian. I sometimes wonder what these incompetent therapists think about when they so easily agree with someone who obviously is confused about their gender but not confused about their sex so much. These idiots and their fellow transgender idiots have blurred the true difference between gender and sex in order to allow for gender fluidity that has lead to more than a few mistakes along the way. Listen to some of the Transgender activists and even look at them and what you see is a man who made a mistake. Look at the leadership of the old Transsexual Menace crowd and tell me that was not a mistake. This person now spends their time trying to spew their gender views on the world looking like a man and unfortunately acting like one yet many in the Transgender movement consider this individual important when in the simplest terms this is someone that made a mistake getting SRS and wants to demean its value to those who need it.
The same can be said of any FTM that wants to get pregnant because quite simply if you are a man why would you want to be pregnant. Only women get pregnant unless you want the publicity. The same goes for the Transgender crowd that believes keeping their penis does not prevent them from being women. It goes along with the male mantra that men get what they want and screw any women that get in their way. One could almost make a case that the pregnant men are doing it just to throw it in the face of women. Could they possibly be that shallow? Yes, I am sorry to say.
Detransition is another arrow used to deny transsexual children early hormone intervention. This entire fiasco simply goes to the point that therapists, shrinks, and the transgender activists have not one freaking clue about what being transsexual is truly about. It is not about the clothes. It is not about the shoes. It is not about gender. It is simply about being female for the truly transsexual MTF and simply being male for the truly transsexual FTM.
Truly transsexual people shudder at the thought of detransitioning and going back to what they never were. It is why SRS is so important to both the MTF and FTM transsexual. It is why we refuse to accept a man with a penis as a women or a woman as a man if she gets pregnant.
I do hope and pray that both of these individuals are finally happy but I kind of doubt it.
I cannot comment on what the effects of transitioning at 5 or 6 does for those that are not transsexual because I personally have never dealt with one. But I have dealt with kids that we helped that transitioned between the ages of 12-14 and without question they knew exactly who they were, girls, and what they wanted, SRS, despite their ages. Spend ten minutes talking with them and you knew they were the real deal and it is why we helped. There was never any regret nor did any turn back. Kim Petras is a classic example of the good that happens when estrogen intervention occurs early on before puberty.
Thankfully neither of these young adults had SRS but the male is headed for issues because he has had major injections of silicone into his body and the long term ramifications are unclear although the risk for cancer is certainly higher. The young woman has had to suffer throw laser hair removal and will need electrolysis to remove the remaining facial hair. Both of these young adults have paid a price for the folly of their actions which were certainly condoned and facilitated by the Transgender medical community all in the name of the gender free-for-all they have fermented.
It is not your gender that needs fixing if you are transsexual. It is your sex characteristics but this has been termed "unnecessary" which has led to this type of folly. Those that oppose helping children will point to these two, they already have, but as stated before these two were adults when they started this and it was their stupidity or lack of oversight or competence in the medical world that allowed these two disasters to take place.
Say a prayer for the kids that need help because it could be harder to get and right now it is darn hard to find a competent doctor that truly understands what a transsexual is and how to treat them. Treating a transsexual like you treat the transgendered is like treating a cancer patient for hemorrhoids, it doesn't work.
