50 Ways to Detransition

“The problem is all inside your head”
She said to me
“The answer is easy if you
Take it logically
I’d like to help you in your struggle
To be free
There must be fifty ways
To detransition."

Just stop all the pills Jill

Refuse to inject Seth

It's gonna be hard Barb

Just get yourself free

Let go of the lie Kai

Love your whole self Ralph

Get out of the box Mox

And set yourself free

(To the tune of "Shut up and Dance with me." Sorry to ruin it)

Don't you dare question the ideology.

I said, " You're not a girl."

He said, "Shut up and call me she."

He learned this stuff in therapy?

He said, "Yes, yes, shut up and call me she."

He's a victim of a cult.

His therapist is lying and this is the result.

Cis, white men his school would just insult.

Oh this was bound to happen, this was bound to happen.

Took estrogen

I'm scared of what will happen

He changed his name and he said,

Don't you dare question the ideology.

I said, " You're not a girl."

He said, "Shut up and call me she."

He learned this stuff in therapy?

He said, "Yes, yes, shut up and call me she."

A shapeless dress and his same old sneaks

My kind and loving son now has a vicious streak.

I felt pain in my chest when he said to me,

"I was born to be a woman. Born to be a woman.

It's all a lie!

I don't know how it happened.

He raised his voice and he said,

Don't you dare question the ideology.

I said, " You're not a girl."

He said, "Shut up and call me she."

He learned this stuff in therapy?

He said, "Yes, yes, shut up and call me she."

Oh, my son and I love rewriting songs!

'She' is me, yeah, yeah, yeah

'She' is me, yeah, yeah, yeah

'She' is me, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You think you've lost your son.

But I saw them yesterday,

And it's them I'm thinkin' of.

They told me what to say.

They said, "You are 'her,'

And you know that can't be bad.

Yes, you are 'her,'

And you know they should be glad."

They said you hurt me so

I should have lost my mind.

But they say that I should know

THEY'RE not the hurtin' kind.

They say you hate me,

And you know that that is bad.

But they love me,

And you know you should be glad, ooh

I am 'her,' yeah, yeah, yeah

I am 'her,' yeah, yeah, yeah

With a girl like me,

You know you should be glad.

They said it's up to me,

But they know I'm not a boy.

Your hate will hurt me so.

Apologize, transphobe!

Because I am 'her,'

And you know that can't be bad.

Yes, I am 'her,'

And you know you should be glad, ooh

'She' is me, yeah, yeah, yeah

'She' is me, yeah, yeah, yeah

With a girl like that

You know you should be glad

With a son like that

You know you should be glad

In a cult like that

You know you should. . .be glad?

oh, no, no

oh, no, no, NO!

I don't even have to rewrite it. Zombies "She's Not There" I have already found fitting. Search it up on YouTube if you don't know that one, it's an oldie.

Oh, ok I’ll bite:

Her name was Lola

She was a cis girl

But that was in 2019

Before ‘vid and lots of screens

Now she’s named Pedro

And wears a binder

And all her teachers ooh and ahh

Now that Lola’s ditched her bra

She sits there on her phone

And buys testosterone

She ditched her home and she ditched her family

Now she’s all alone…

Apologies to Barry Manilow and everyone for whom I ruined this song 😬

Yeah, that was kinda therapeutic.

Bye Bye name

Bye Bye Mom & Dad

Hello pretend lad

I think I'm my true self

Bye Bye breasts

Bye Bye pretty dress

Hello hormonal mess

I feel like a success!

There goes my gender to something new

A life of hard drugs, and surgeries too

Dropped out of college, and lost my friends

Then went no contact, how will this end?

Bye Bye home

Bye Bye family

Now I am truly me

Why do I feel so blue?

Bye Bye truth

Bye Bye sanity

Hello calamity

What ever shall I do?

I'm through with God, I'm through with life

I'm through waiting to go under the knife

And here's the reason that I'm so free

Trans cult and Satan have rescued me!

Bye Bye love

Bye Bye reality

Hello deceitful me

My future looks quite dark

Bye Bye dreams

Bye Bye laughs and joy

Hello brainwashed "boy", my cult affirms it's true,

So why don't God and you?

Bye Bye my life, goodbye

Bye Bye my life, goodbye

Bye Bye my life, goodbye.

Yes, humor and art are fantastic ways to expose this nonsense to people who don’t know/believe what is happening.

If you can't think of a song to rewrite, here are a few old songs that in my mind are particularly well-suited for the purpose: Young turks, YMCA, Kodachrome, Margaritaville, Escape (The Pina Colada song) practically writes itself. Does anybody else want to write a version of the latter? Here's mine

I was unsure of my manhood

I've had doubts for a while

I've got  somewhat flamboyant ,

kinda  feminine style.

 So while I should have been sleepin'

I read reddit in bed

And on the MTF forum

There was this post that I read 

If you like "My little ponies"

And have a beautiful mane

If you're not into football

If you have half a brain 

If you like wearing skirts at midnight

And want an hourglass shape

Then you are a transwoman

Take some E and escape 

I didn't think about science

I know that sounds kinda dense

But the people on reddit

Said it  makes perfect sense 

 So I  went to the clinic

Told them "I am not a dude"

And though I  still like my penis

I think they understood 

 Yes, I like  "My little ponies"

And gettin' chemical peels

I'm not into football

I am into high heels 

I've got to start the transition

And cut through all this red tape

So they gave me prescription, Perfect way to escape .

So I waited with high hopes

For those hormones to work

But with time came a feeling

I was being a dork .

Then I looked in the mirror

And  I said, "Oh, it's you"

Then I  cried and admitted

And said, "I always knew" 

"Yes, I  like"My little ponies"

I am not into sports,

like cooking and dancing,

I don’t like loud farts

 But I was born with a penis,

And I got Y chromosome

I grew up into man then

Human male, fully grown

When she was younger, so much younger than today

She wore only dresses, even when out to play

But now those days are gone and she's no longer self assured

Her mind was changed when trans infiltrated it through Tumblr and Discord

Help me if you can I'm feeling down

And I do appreciate you parents being 'round

Help me get her feet back on the ground

Won't you please please help me!

We went to therapy for reason and reality

That ship, however, sailed with affirmation only

It only worsened her fragile mental state

And made her all the more insecure

Help me if you can I'm feeling down

And I do appreciate parents being 'round

Help me get her feet back on the ground

Won't you please please help me!

I continue to hope and continue to pray

That this trans madness will eventually go away

But in the meantime wokeness has me undone

With chants of "Do you want a dead daughter or living son?"

Help me if you can I'm feeling down

And I do appreciate you parents being 'round

Help me get her feet back on the ground

Won't you please please help me!

We’re trans women hear us roar

In voices to deep to ignore

And we’ll force you all to pretend

We will cancel you before

Or maybe knock you to the floor

Cause no one’s gonnna misgender us again

I've got of picture of me and me

I wrote, "I love me", I wrote, "Me too"

I sit there staring and there's nothing else to do

Oh, it's in color, my hair is brown

my eyes are hazel and soft as clouds

I often kiss me when there's no one else around

I've got my picture, I've got my picture

I'd like a fake me over my real self

I want a doctor to take my picture

and take off all the parts that aren’t swell

I’m turning up and turning down

And turning in and turning 'round

I'm turning genders

I think I'm turning genders

I really think so

Turning genders

I think I'm turning genders

I really think so

Turning genders

I think I'm turning genders

I really think so

Turning genders

I think I'm turning genders

I really think so

Change sex, change drugs, change to man change to woman

No fun, no man, no you, no wonder it's dark

Everyone around me is a total stranger

Everyone avoids me like a psyched Lone Ranger

Everyone...

That's why I'm turning gender

I think I'm turning gender

I really think so

Turning gender

I think I'm turning gender

I really think so
