    By chance, I was proposed some Youtube videos about "de-transition", which is not completing the process of transition to the opposite and "returning" to the original gender. What do you think of it? Do you think it may be harmful to the interests of transsexual individuals?

    I post a random video I came across, the testimony of an individual born as a girl who decided to give up FTM transition.

    I see it as a personal decision. And I think the rights of transexuals is promoted by those making their own choices, rather than having the choice forced upon them.

    I'd have to track down the source again, but I saw sone stats recently on this.

    The percentage of people who regret transitioning is exceedingly low, and it's almost entirely made up of two groups:

    - people who realized afterward that they were gender non-conforming, not trans.

    - people who found the anti-trans bigotry and harassment to be too much to take once they couldn't "pass" as cis.

    The same article pointed out that if the anti-trans community were really worried about people entering into lifelong commitments they regret, what they really should be focusing on is opposite-sex marriage, which has a half to a third of the people who enter into it expressing regret about that decision by getting divorced.

    "Detransition" is a movement the same way that
    buyer's remorse on a wedding is a movement.
