As an alarming number of desisted and detrans young people come forward, more and more as time passes, they bring visibility and awareness to the medical malpractice that’s been going on for years. The major surge, in the number of kids who identify as “trans” in recent years, has done nothing to slow the medical field down. On the contrary, they’re willfully ignoring everything we know about how the brain develops, and normalizing youth “transition.”
Penny was just 11 years old when she decided that people online were right — that she was “transgender.” At 13, she was prescribed hormone blockers, and by 15, she’d had a double mastectomy. Now, at 16, she’s raising money on gofundme for a breast reconstruction.
“Very shortly after surgery, my depression got worse. I hated myself just as much as ever, leading me to a psychiatric hospitalization in October 2019.”
Gender ideology — a fairly new and contradictory belief system — is seeping into the school curriculum, pulling kids down the internet rabbit hole, and encouraging young people to question and analyze their “gender identity.”
As an alarming number of desisted and detrans young people come forward, more and more as time passes, they bring visibility and awareness to the medical malpractice that’s been going on for years.
The major surge, in the number of kids who identify as “trans” in recent years, has done nothing to slow the medical field down. On the contrary, they’re willfully ignoring everything we know about how the brain develops, and normalizing youth “transition.”
“During my hospital stay, I realized my mistake. Transition wasn’t the fix I needed and it couldn’t take away my mental health issues. I had never been tested for any body issues, so we assumed it was gender dysphoria… I was completely distraught with my surgery.”
It’s being spun as “bigotry” to disagree, and “progressive” to get onboard. Labeling toddlers as young as 1, medicalizing children as young as 8, and performing double mastectomies (“top surgery”) on kids as young as 12, way before they ever even have a chance to reach full cognitive brain development, isn’t progressive. It’s abuse. And my saying so, publicly, out in the mainstream, for several years now, hasn’t been without consequence, even threats. But reading about kids like Penny, fuels me to speak even louder than before.
“From the very start, people online told me that if I was uncomfortable with my body, I was probably trans.”
After Penny decided she was “trans,” at age 11, she “attended a gender clinic to express [her] issues of gender dysphoria.” At 13, she was put on hormone blockers. At 14, she was prescribed testosterone. She was 15 years old when medical professionals performed a double mastectomy on her.
We don’t reach full cognitive brain development till around age 25, and up — And this isn’t something we’ve just discovered. We’ve known this the whole time. Penny’s doctors knew. The entire medical field knows. In fact, it’s so basic, I learned this as a first year PSY student.
In a fundraiser, posted in June of 2020, on gofundme, Penny writes, “Hi, my name is Penny and I’m a 16 year old detransitioner. When I was 11 years old, I came out as transgender. My parents were hesitant at first and of course scared for my safety, but overall supportive. I attended a gender clinic to express my issues of gender dysphoria. They asked me the usual questions about if I felt disconnected with my body, my desire to be the opposite sex, and my issues with my period. From the very start , people online told me that if I was uncomfortable with my body, I was probably trans.”
Some well-meaning parents weren’t prepared for this crazy period in time — Where the medical field is lying, the so-called “LGBTQ” is gaslighting, and children are growing up surrounded by constant rapid-fire, with the worst of the world at their fingertips.
The so-called “LGBTQ” has promoted the idea of “trans kids.” A great number of people have decided it’s progressive, played along, or kept quiet.
The fight to enforce gender ideology, which comes with an extremely long list of often irrational demands, has been compared to the fight for gay and lesbian rights, which mainly consisted of two requests — ‘don’t abuse us, and let us get married.’ The two movements are not even remotely alike. Pray, do tell, what parent could ever walk into a room and introduce their toddler as a lesbian, without seeming certifiably insane?
Statistics show that 85 percent of the time, young people who are diagnosed with “gender dysphoria” grow up to desist, with uninterrupted puberty, and more than 75 percent of the time, kids who experience “gender dysphoria,” grow up to be LGB, if allowed a chance to grow up. That number drops to around 0-10 percent with “early transition.”
What we’re seeing now is a massive human rights violation that targets LGB youth, and it’s being spearheaded by the very organizations that were once set up to protect us. It’s harming young straight people as well.
“I had giant scars on my chest and a body part gone.”
Penny writes, “I am glad I had the support at the time of my doctors because I was in a near constant state of depression and suicidal ideation. However I am not glad that they did no psych evaluation on me to test me for underlying disorders such as body dysmorphia or eating disorders. When I was 13 I was put on hormone blockers, which keep the estrogen from producing. This is what was recommended and it made me happy because I thought I was sure. After this, I gained around 40-50 pounds due to hormone imbalances, making my body issues worse. I only got more depressed and uncomfortable with myself, but I was happy it stopped menstruation. The next year at 14, I got a therapist approved letter to start testosterone, hormone replacement therapy.”
The entire medical field collectively chose to ignore the fact that Penny couldn’t possibly give “informed consent” to these treatments, because she hadn’t even come close to reaching full cognitive brain development. Like many kids, she wasn’t questioned about other things that might’ve been going on.
Penny lives in Pennsylvania. In many places, such as NY, you’re no longer allowed to do anything but “affirm” a child’s “gender identity” — it cannot be questioned.
Penny writes, “Although I was pleased at the time with the changes I saw, my mental health still wasn’t improving, and transition was not the easy fix i expected. I insisted that I go through with surgery, a double mastectomy. At this point, I was starting to have doubts but I assured myself it was normal. On August 16th, 2019 I got top surgery at the age of 15, one of the youngest people that clinic had operated on. Very shortly after surgery, my depression got worse. I hated myself just as much as ever, leading me to a psychiatric hospitalization in October 2019.”
We rarely hear the major organizations and media personalities, who promote the medicalization of youth, so much as acknowledge the shocking number of desisters and detransitioners coming forward, unless it’s to say they don’t exist — The “LGBTQ” silences detrans youth and tosses them out like collateral damage. But we do often hear them threaten parents with false statistics, the idea that their child will commit suicide if they don’t allow them to transition, and it’ll be their fault.
For years we’ve been shouting about this, often feeling like no one would listen. Lesbians, in particular, have been aggressively silenced within mainstream “LGBTQ” media, and in mainstream media as well. We’ve also been excluded from what few lesbian mainstream publications we had remaining, in the name of “inclusion.”
Recently, J.K. Rowling stepped up in a major way to back up lesbians when she shared an article I wrote, titled, Anonymous Letter From a Terrified Lesbian.
Amidst a surreal amount of abuse and death threats she received, for speaking up in a number of tweets, the author of the Harry Potter series didn’t back down. On the contrary, she too, spoke louder. She used her platform to bring awareness to issues surrounding self-ID and the unethical medical abuse of young people.
A young detrans voice, who had a double mastectomy as a teen, responded to J.K. Rowling with gratitude for highlighting what’s going on, and said, “countless trans people have told detransitioners to shut up and sit down because we were ‘never trans’ and we ‘should have known better.’” A year after her surgery, she generously shared her story online — That she’d attempted suicide the year prior because she didn’t want to admit that she needed to detransition.
