James Caspian was denied permission to research the phenomenon of detransitioning at Bath Spa University in 2017, and says he has been approached by many patients since who say: “I’m not the other sex. I shouldn’t have done this.”
(The Christian Institute) Four young women who began identifying as men have created a video explaining why they ‘detransitioned’ and have returned to living as women.
Helena, Jesse, Dagny and Chiara set up a new group to help young people understand the dangers of transgenderism.
Pique Resilience Project looks to “promote positive social change through candid examination” of their experiences as detransitioners.
In the video, they reveal that three of them had taken testosterone to begin medically transitioning from female to male.
Dagny explained it was the support of her parents that persuaded her to transition.
“I think if I had been made to wait until I was 18, when I was just on the verge of going to college, I would not have started hormones.”
Jesse said she believes it compounded her other mental health issues and that her time ‘living as a man’ was a “confusing and deluded” part of her life.
She added: “I completely regret jumping into it. I should have just chilled out”.
