Detrans Awareness Day: March 12, 2021

Please join us in honoring Detrans Awareness Day on Friday, March 12th.

As we fight against the gender industry, we also need to support those who have been harmed by it. Detransitioners are often ostracized from their former trans-affirming communities. As a result of being prescribed experimental interventions such as puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, they often suffer from a myriad of health complications. Many have had parts of their bodies surgically removed. Their bodies have been irreversibly harmed.

Often detransitioners are told that “they made their bed,” and that they should take responsibility for their “mistake.” This is blaming the victim in the worst way. In many states, the only care offered to those suffering with gender dysphoria is medical interventions to alter their bodies. Therapists have been encouraged and sometimes legally compelled to only affirm a transgender identity, not to search for underlying causes of gender dysphoria.

Detransitioners were lied to.

They were told that these interventions were the only way for them to find peace and stability. They were told to embrace being “born in the wrong body.” They were encouraged to believe they were inherently flawed. Then they realize that these interventions were not the answer; in fact, the interventions exacerbated their distress. The help they were promised turned out to harm them. Then, to add insult to injury, they are told by those in the transgender industry “you were never really trans.”

Insurance companies and government programs who willingly covered the cost of transgender interventions, refuse to cover the costs of helping detransitoners recover a semblance of their pre-transition body. Insurance companies say that is cosmetic surgery.

Before detransitioners transitioned, they were told that the angst they had about how they looked was so unmanageable that their only option was to resort to transitioning treatments. However, the same angst they feel about their bodies after detransitioning is written off as their problem, and something they have to learn to live with.

We need to share their stories. We need to care about their struggles. We need to raise

awareness of their plight. Most of all, we need to advocate to stop these experimental

interventions before others become irreversibly harmed.
