Transgender Regret Is So Prevalent That Even the Mainstream Media Is Recognizing It Now

One thing that has always haunted the transgender trend is the regret that many feel after they’ve had transitional surgeries or hormone treatments done to them. Mainstream media sources were more or less terrified of discussing it, and even universities were afraid of looking into it out of fear of backlash from the LGBT community.


All the way back in 2018, I wrote how Bath Spa University originally approved psychotherapist James Caspian’s request for de-transitioning research after thousands who underwent some form of transition surgery began showing up to surgeons for reversals. Surgeons noticed that those who came in to receive their de-transition surgeries were younger and younger, going from 45 to 21 years of age.

The problem has gotten large enough that there was a “#DeTransAwarenessDay” on Twitter that featured stories of regret and warning from those who went through irreversible surgeries and are plagued by decisions they can’t take back.

While the LGBT activist community wasn’t allowing for this talk to even happen, the problem has now grown so large that it’s become unignorable. In fact, it’s become so loud that even 60 Minutes ran a segment on it.

Within the segment, you’re given an interesting look into how quickly transition surgeries happen. Reports that people feeling a sense of gender dysphoria, stemming from depression, aren’t really looked into by doctors or therapists. They’re simply asked to sign a consent form, and then treatment begins.

A woman named Grace Ledinsky-Smith tells this very story and notes it was only four months into her testosterone treatment that she was approved for a mastectomy. She claims the process was traumatic and soon after began de-transitioning. All of this happened over the course of one year.


An individual named “Garrett” had a similar story to tell with his resulting in the removal of his testicles after only three months on therapy.

“I went for two appointments and after the second one I had, like, my letter to go get on cross-sex hormones,” he said.

“I had never really been suicidal before until I had my breast augmentation,” Garrett added. “And about a week afterwards I wanted to, like, actually kill myself. Like, I had a plan and I was gonna do it, but I just kept thinking about, like, my family to stop myself. It kind of felt like how am I ever going to feel normal again, like other guys now?”

Now, Doctors are beginning to speak out like Dr. Laura Edwards-Leeper, who exposes the fact that the medical community is afraid to speak out on the topic.

“I feel like what is happening is unethical and irresponsible in some places,” said Edwards-Leeper. “Everyone is very scared to speak up because we’re afraid of not being seen as being affirming or being supportive of these young people or doing something to hurt the trans community. But even some of the providers are trans themselves and share these concerns.”

This matches up with other stories that have come out recently. One Planned Parenthood insider revealed that the abortion giant has begun shifting toward transition therapy and that they’re pushing it on teen girls. As I wrote in February, teen girls would come into the clinic for hormone surgery in the same way they’d go to the mall to get an ear piercing. Hardly any questions were asked, and those that were were somewhat leading:


The “health assistant” told Shrier that each day, teen girls would come to the clinic, sometimes with a parent or with groups of girlfriends all claiming that they have the trendy new mental illness of “gender dysphoria.”

“I think they were telling what they perceived to be their authentic history to them at the time. Like, I was a 13-year-old girl, you know. Everything is very dire, everything needs to be remedied immediately,” she said.

The woman was presented with a script to read to the kids, but it didn’t put too much emphasis on the patient’s history of evaluation.

“The questions that we asked were like, very closed-ended…It would be, ‘you know, at what age did this start’? Boom — that is it. ‘What kinds of dysphoria do you feel’? Boom — that’s it, you know? ‘What do you want out of your transition’? ‘Do you want top surgery?’ ‘Do you want bottom surgery’?”

Often the pattern held that these girls who came in for transition drugs were all suffering from some form of high anxiety or depression. Some came in with self-abuse scars on their arms, but Planned Parenthood staff were instructed not to address them at all.

This means that places like Planned Parenthood, and likely activists in the medical and psychological fields, are preying on depressed or anxiety-ridden people in order to push these therapies and surgeries on them, likely for profit.

Regardless, the reality is catching up with many who transitioned and the transgender fad is proving to be far more dangerous than too many in the medical industry are willing to say. The time is coming, however, and stories are rising to the forefront of society. The dangers of transitioning are becoming hard to ignore as more stories come out. The question is, will mainstream society drop the fad and embrace reality?
