Short thread on Responsibility and Blame-Shifting.

🧵 In any given situation, a person has a degree of things they can control and things they cannot control.

Because of this, it's extremely rare to be 100% responsible or 0%.

In reality, it's somewhere in-between. Sometimes it's closer to 100%, sometimes it's closer to 0%.

I'm not interested in normalising any paraphilia.

They are destructive on the individual and the people around them.

I am interested in prevention, de-escalation and helping those in my cohort, especially those in recovery.

🧵 My cohort are mainly millennials, some late gen Z overlap, around the ages 25 to 39ish

As for kids and young adults, there are accounts that cover safeguarding and interventions in schools like @Isla_macy and @Transgendertrd

An Open Letter to Genspect

🧵 Dear Genspect,

I must ask, are you still an organisation for Detransitioners?

It certainly seemed to start that way, and whilst its nice to see Chloe, Prisha, Luka, Laura and Michelle, there is an alarming lack of us this year. Don't you think?

I belong to a cohort of men and boys that never really fit in.

We weren't particularly effeminate, but we weren't really masculine either. We're quiet, soft, smart but naïve at the same time.

Some of us happen to be gay, some bi, some straight.

🧵 We looked at the men in our life, in our family and culture and feared what we would become.

And we saw women who had all the qualities we had, and our absolutist thinking led us to a simple conclusion, that the reason we feel the way we do, is because we are women too.

I'm pleased to announce that we will be launching a Judicial Review against the UK's Adult Gender Clinics.

The review aims to challenge the failure of the NHS to provide appropriate treatment and safeguards for adults suffering from gender dysphoria. Last Friday, Paul Conrathe issued a notice to the UK's Secretary of Health (@SteveBarclay) and the Minister for Women and Equalities (@KemiBadenoch) informing them of our action. Dr. Hilary Cass has also been notified.

We are optimistic the UK Government will welcome the review.

My story is quite simple, I hated, hated the fact I was gay.

I despised myself, I hated my body so much. I felt disgusting, I would take any offering to escape the decades long struggle.

So when gender affirmation came along, it was all too kind an offer... I thought I was a heterosexual woman in a man's body, I genuinely believed that.

I was totally unhinged, deeply obsessive, distressed and I told the gender clinic everything.

What was the point? The affirmation model permitted them to ignore all the red flags and go on anyway

Having fun with Chat GPT.

I asked it to write a poem about a man, who thought he was someone else who had limbs removed.

I'm a year in. And I'm handing in my 🦎

A 🧵 I'm struggling to recognise myself in the mirror.

I wish I had less dignity, I'd show you what it looks like.

It's fucking awful, like my arsecrack has been extended all the way to the front.

Its disgusting, I'm disgusting.

Even the term 'cross sex hormones' is a misdemeanor. It ponders to the pharma PR campaign that estrogen is the essence of womanhood and testosterone is the essence of manhood.

Just call it for what it is, drugs.

Testosterone energises.
Estrogen soothes. Imagine being an autistic man who doesn't fit in and can't deal with rage and anger, and has their Testosterone stopped and estrogen increased (increasing serotonin production).

If you're thinking about GRS, you really need to ask yourself what will you do if it goes wrong, because living like this isn't glorious, it's miserable.

Let's talk about complications.

Heres 10 to start
🧵 1. Nerve Damage (Sensation)

Any surgical intervention that involves removing muscles, organ and bone comes with a high risk of nerve damage.

Current studies estimate 1 in 7 will lose full sensation.

Personally, I know of more post ops who report a lack of sensation than with.

A former victim of keffals has been in touch.

As brave as this kid is, I'm absolutely enraged they've been blocked at every turn bringing this forward.

There are more wishing to speak out, but are looking for a safe landing to do so. @kittypurrzog @jessesingal

It's infuriating to see Trans people propel the lie that people detransition because of a lack of acceptance.

How about this one, detransitioners will retransition because of a lack of acceptance from their friends and family.

🧵 First let's address the reason for detransition. @DaysGoByGoBy Alex, head moderator of /r/detrans ran an indepth controlled survey on detransitioners, you can see the full survey here: reddit.com/r/detrans/comm…

What do you notice about the responses? Acceptance at the bottom.

Gender dysphoria is a bland, useless and damaging concept

Here's why 🧵 1. It's the only medical condition based primarily on self diagnosis.

In the UK Gender Dysphoria is classified as a medical condition. No other medical condition relys solely on the authority of the patient.

What happens next with Detrans and LGBTQ+?

tl;dr - They will be commodified into "LGTBDQ+" Calling us fake didn't work, neither did calling us liars.

Why? Internet histories, cross verification from others all confirmed our stories were true. They came after us, contacted people we knew, tried to dig up what they could and only found that our stories were true.

Let's talk about deadnames!🧵 When a person gets married and takes their partner’s family name, they do not refer to their previous name as a deadname, why not? Even people who change their name for any other reason aside from being trans, do not refer to this as a deadname.

I've seen this 1% regret rate flying all over twitter. It's from this specific meta study.

Look at the sample sizes, bias rating and mean follow up time.

This is not robust at all and anyone quoting this should be pointed towards the meth

journals.lww.com/prsgo/fulltext… Additional note should be taken to "Types of regret". Not all of the meta studies asked it and the questions around detransition are "Not specified"

Also sad lol at the main cause of regret.

I want to tell everyone what they took from us, what irreversible really means, and what that reality looks like for us.

No one told me any of what I’m going to tell you now.

🧵 I have no sensation in my crotch region at all.

You could stab me with a knife and I wouldn't know. The entire area is numb, like it's shell shocked and unable to comprehend what happened, even 4 years on.

A name is given with love. To change a name is to sever a bond.

Just as someone changes their name and pronouns, they inadverigly change that given connection to their parents.

This is the true meaning of the deadname, the death of the parental connection I was wondering where all the Trans on twitter went, apparently they went to Spain 😂

Hello world, I wish I could show my face, but the truth is I'm more ashamed of how I look now then ever before.

We place flowers at scenes of heartache and loss, which is my profile picture will be a Tulip or a Rose.

I have immense loss I'd like to share my story.
#detrans I'm in my later 30's now and I transitioned when i was 25.

I have been on hormones for all that time, and had penile inversion with scrotal graft nearly 5 years ago.

Im mildly incontinent for life now, and though i had a decent result. Its nothing like the real thing.
