Though it received absolutely zero attention from the zealously pro-trans establishment media, this Saturday, March 12th, marked Detrans Awareness Day, a holiday of sorts for those who’ve suffered tangible harm because of radical trans ideology.

The purpose of the holiday is to provide those who’ve detransitioned from being transgender an opportunity to share their experiences. Their stories matter both because they matter as people, and because their stories serve as a necessary counterweight to the propaganda pushed by pro-trans activists, including those in the press.

The fact is that detransioners are far more common than activists, including those in the media, care to admit. The establishment media in particular are so invested in trans ideology that in 2019, NBC News ran a report encouraging the media to mostly avoid covering the detransitioning “narrative” because it makes detransitioning “seem more common than it is.”

Yet the spate of stories that flooded Twitter on #DetransAwarenessDay suggest detransitioning is indeed “more common” than they’d have one believe.

One story came from a woman Twitter-named Helena, who described how her school had “encouraged” her to get “sucked into gender ideology.” This led to her eventually being “prescribed a very high dose of testosterone at 18.”

The treatment wound up being “very damaging.” She eventually detransitioned back into a woman, though it was no easy ordeal.

In the tweets posted below, she added, “[T]his is not rare.”

Another story came from a woman Twitter-named Winter Rose, who described how she’d “let the internet convince me that” going transgender was the right solution for her gender dysphoria.

“It turns out, gender dysphoria can also be a symptom of not fitting into society’s ideals for femininity and compounded by hating yourself. I am gender non-conforming, not trans,” she wrote.


Another story came from a woman Twitter-named Watson. She wrote that she’d originally transitioned because she too had been led to believe that transitioning was the one and only proper solution for gender dysphoria. But that, she warned, isn’t necessarily true.

“We’re told people with dysphoria are treated with transition, right? But unlike other trans people, transition didn’t help me,” she wrote.

“I detransitioned because I experienced extreme transition regret: realizing that my desire to become a man stemmed from a variety of factors that ultimately led me to want to be someone else, not my “authentic self,” but someone (and something) else entirely. It was an escape.”


One of the most powerful stories came from a woman Twitter-named Grace Elizabeth. In a stunningly eloquent set of posts, she described how she and another person — her partner, it would appear — were essentially duped into going down the path of hormone replacement therapy and surgery.

“The only path it leads you to is adhering to and being a tool of the hyper-marketing path they say ‘the gang’s all in.’ Pain and alteration, shiny stereotypes and twisting of innocent people, induction into dark places they call ‘freedom’ when it’s anything but,” she warned.
