60 Minutes Runs Piece on "De-Transitioning"

Don't get too hopeful.

The 60 Minutes piece, despite featuring teens who were depressed and suicidal being sold on transitioning as a Miracle Pill to fix them and then finding out they were sold a lie, and despite featuring a boy getting a doctor to remove his testicles a mere three months after self-diagnosing as maybe transgender, concludes, bizarrely, that we need more transgender "care" rather than less, and that restricting "care" for transgenders will make the situation worse.

They keep saying Republicans are limiting transgender "care."

They repeatedly fail to specify that Republicans are seeking to limit such "care" for children, who are the victims seen in this piece.

But Evil can't admit what Evil seeks and so resorts to lies.

The segment featured how transgender activists have pushed back on legislation across the U.S. that aims to protect children from undergoing potentially life-altering medical procedures before they are old enough to understand the ramifications of their decisions. One of the transgender advocates said the fact that so many transgender individuals had decided to de-transition was proof that more resources were needed for trans individuals, not fewer.

Grace Lidinsky-Smith, who decided to transition in her early 20s and later decided to reverse course, said that the amount of questions she was asked by health care professionals prior to her decision to take hormones was minimal.

Grace Lidinsky-Smith: She didn't go -- really go into what my gender dysphoria might’ve been stemming from. We only did a few sessions.


Grace Lidinsky-Smith: They asked me, "So, why do you wanna go on testosterone?" And I said, "Well, being a woman just isn’t working for me anymore." And they said, "Okay."

Lesley Stahl (NARRATION): Just four months after she started testosterone, she says she was approved for a mastectomy, what's called top surgery, that she told us was traumatic.

Lesley Stahl: You know, I'm kinda surprised because, based on everything you've said up to now, I would've thought you’d have a great sense of relief.

Grace Lidinsky-Smith: I started to have a really disturbing sense that like a part of my body was missing, almost a ghost limb feeling about being like, there's something that should be there. And the feeling really surprised me but it was really hard to deny.

Lesley Stahl (NARRATION):And so she detransitioned by going off testosterone and then went back to the clinic and, she says, complained to the doctor that the process didn't follow the WPATH guidelines.

Grace Lidinsky-Smith: I can't believe that I transitioned and detransitioned, including hormones and surgery, in the course of, like, less than one year. It’s completely crazy.

It is in fact "completely crazy."

But Stahl keeps telling us we need more genital amputations for children, not fewer.

Other young transgender individuals that "60 Minutes" interviewed said that they felt like they "didn't get enough pushback on transitioning."

"I went for two appointments and after the second one I had, like, my letter to go get on cross-sex hormones," an individual named Garrett said. Garrett went from taking hormones to getting his testicles removed in just three months, and later got a breast augmentation and felt significantly worse afterward.

"I had never really been suicidal before until I had my breast augmentation," Garrett said. "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?"

Video excerpt below.

I suppose the best that can be said is, "At least the leftwing propaganda media has taken the first cowardly tip-toeing steps to admitting maybe this is a problem and maybe we're butchering our kids to #Resist Trump."

Now keeping in mind that many/most kids are pushed into "transgenderism" as a possible cure for untreated depression, consider the following story:

They're sold a double lie:

First, that chronic depression can be cured by having parts of their body lopped off.

Many women decide to cut their hair short as an attempt to change up their lives.

Note that 1, this actually almost never works, and 2, this is an extremely reversible process anyway.

If these doctors want to suggest a surgical cure for depression, why not just prescribe a pixie cut, instead of a voluntary double masectomy?

The other lie, of course, is that after transition, they will in fact be the other gender.

No, of course they won't. Of course they won't.

Gender is not a hair length. It cannot be changed with scissors.

"Transitioning" people will only be "transitioned" physically intact people into a maimed version of their original gender.

And how the fuck is that supposed to cure depression?
