I appreciate your latest video. De-transitioning is such a difficult and sensitive topic, and I'm afraid that it's going to end up becoming more prevalent within the trans community. A trans YouTuber that I follow recently referenced de-transitioning in one of his videos, and he basically dismissed it by saying that the actual population of de-trans individuals is tiny, and that people use the idea of de-transitioning as a way of scaring trans people out of transitioning at all. What he said left a bad taste in my mouth, because when I look at social media - Tumblr, Reddit, YouTube, Twitter etc. - there's a growing community of de-trans people popping up, a lot of them self-admitted lesbians under the age of 30. In the last couple of weeks alone, like four different girls have stepped forward and admitted to de-transitioning and quitting T within the last year, one girl as recently as last week. But every time I see someone new pop up and come out as de-transitioning, it makes my heart break for what they've had to go through to come to this realization. Their stories are heartbreaking, and these girls are so incredibly brave. They deserve so much support and respect, and it's important that their voices are heard.
I don't understand why is it that many young people just jump the gun and decide to start medical transition when they haven't been able to find themselves first.
I have always been very masculine. Have been wearing men's clothing since I was 9. But I learned about what FtM trans were by the time I was 28 years old,and I moved to the US.
I have always felt as a man, but have never heard of this before. Puerto Rico is very conservative and this kinds of things are not talked about. I knew about MtF.
I don't transition due to respect to my parents. They won't be able to understand this whole concept, and I wouldn't put them thru it. But I live my life as a male. People refer to me as sir, even thou I still have 48DD on me, and not one drop of Testosterone, other than the one my body naturally makes. I am a weightlifter, And i am very muscular, so I guess people just don't see my boobs because the rest of me covers them. I guess they just think I am a fat boy with man boobs.
People need to be sure about what they are doing. Transitioning shouldn't be a fad, or something you do to gain attention. And it undermines the struggles of all the trans people that are fighting for visibility and not to be taken as crazy people that will go back to their assigned at birth gender.
