Please Watch The Detransition Diaries
Every Wednesday, if one has been submitted, we publish a piece by a detransitioner. Today, we’d like to raise the visibility of a new documentary film that tells the story of three young women—Helena, Cat, and Grace—who were trans-identified and later detransitioned.
This film focuses on the rising number of young girls and women who decide to transition. Statistics show that between 2016 and 2017 the rate of gender surgeries among women and girls quadrupled in the U.S., and continues to rise. This is due, in part, to the reality of this new social contagion.
Helena, Cat, and Grace shared similar struggles. Not wanting to live in this world as female, these young women felt that their trauma and dysphoria would be fixed by trying to medically transition from female to male, and medical professionals, therapists, counselors, and even school officials affirmed that they were indeed ‘trans’. All began medical transition and changed their names, their hair, their pronouns, thinking that this would help them and relieve them from their duress and suicidal ideations. Nothing could have been further from the truth.
Please show these women and all detransitioners some support by watching the documentary and sending it along to others!
