The increasing number of American adolescents identifying as transgender has led to a rise in detransitioning.

Some individuals attribute their gender transition to underlying issues, influenced by online activists and the transgender community.

Luka Hein and Chloe Cole, who detransitioned, shared their stories of feeling pressured into transitioning and experiencing rejection upon detransitioning.

Both faced protests and criticism for speaking out about their experiences.

They highlighted the lack of support for detransitioners and the intense backlash they receive from the transgender community.

“While this is all going on, I also kind of shut myself off and retreated more and more into online spaces,” Hein said.

“In these online spaces, normal teenage insecurities like not liking your period or being self-conscious about how your body is growing and developing, growing more curves, breasts, stuff like that … it was twisted into, ‘Oh, these are not just normal teenage experiences, this means that you’re actually a boy born in the wrong body.'”

“Obviously from someone who went through trauma, was disassociated completely from their body, that was a that was an idea that all of a sudden I was like, ‘Okay, yeah, that makes sense.'”

“During that time, no one really pushed back against what was going on after I came out, it was automatically accepted as like, ‘Okay, yes, this is the issue,’ despite the fact that these professionals knew the history of what was going on in my life, knew I had other co-morbidities, there was no push back,” she said.

“My parents were told that there is a suicide risk if you don’t affirm … the whole ‘Would you rather have a dead daughter or a living son’ mantra stuff.”

“In high school, that made me rather unpopular with some of the other trans-identified people because they didn’t like it … to the point where one of them almost punched me in the face at a youth pride event over it,” she added.

“They’re always the most miserable people I’ve ever met, and they’re always so mean,” Hein said of trans activists.

“It’s funny because I can’t think of really many, if any other medical practices that the victims of these medical practices get treated like this,” she said.

“It’s one of those things where when you have a child or a young teenager and they’re coming to you and they are distressed and they are saying, ‘I think every single thing is wrong with me, down to my very physical being’ … What kind of adult do you have to be to look that child in the eyes and say, ‘Yes, everything is wrong with you and we’re going to make sure we change everything about you, and you’ll be better,” she pressed.

“You are just affirming every negative perception of themselves into reality, instead of helping them work through it.”

“Once I even said that I was detransitioning, that I regretted it, in that I was talking about my experience and how transitioning damaged my life, the immediate response from my transgender friends in this community that I once looked up to, that I once saw as a second family … was now entirely against me,” Cole said.

“With each step [of my transition], I was actively encouraged to go further into it, I was celebrated for what I was doing, but now that I was being honest about it, now that it was something that was painful for me, they were telling me that I had to stop talking about my experience, that I was harming other people within the community by making them feel afraid of thinking this themselves,” she said.

“For example, yesterday there was a protest they [trans activists] were holding,” Cole said.

“I’ve never seen anything like it before. It was like a concert drag queen dance ritual kind of thing and one of the men who was in women’s clothing there went out of his way to try to intimidate me, shaking his fake breasts in my face, knowing that I had a double mastectomy at the age of 15, just a complete mockery of my experience and of women in general.”

“This is a group of people that is very ideologically captured and many of them are not the most mentally stable, many of them have severe trauma that is not being addressed,” Cole said.

“They’re not being helped by the doctors … [which] are actively encouraging them to go further and further into their unhealthy lifestyles.”

“They’re convinced that there is a genocide actively being waged against them, against children and that any sort of pushback against this is pushback against their livelihoods,” she added.

“Basically, they’re told that they are losing their basic human rights and they’re losing their rights to health care.”
