Detransitioned Navy SEAL tells parents 80% of gender confusion ‘corrected’ on its own by end of puberty

A retired Navy SEAL who used to be a so-called “transgender woman” is now warning parents to think twice before exposing their children to transgender treatment/surgery.

Chris Beck, formerly a “transgender woman” named “Kristen Beck,” issued the warning while appearing on Fox News’ “Fox News Tonight” last Wednesday.


“So I was in mental health counseling for my graduate degree here at a university where I live, and so I was learning all the procedures, I was learning all about human development from birth all the way through – up to 25 years old, you’re still developing your brain. So the thing is, is that when you’re going through these courses, they’re coaching you and they’re coaching you on what to say to parents, and they’re not showing all the data,” he said.

“So one of the biggest pieces of data that they’re missing right now is that 80% of the kids who are going through gender dysphoria or gender confusion either before puberty and during puberty, 80% of those kids are corrected – [They] will get rid of all that gender confusion by the time puberty is over. 80%!”

Which is why, he continued, allowing children to pursue irreversible transgender “treatment” is not such a great idea.

“If a kid goes on puberty blockers when they’re 13, 14, 15 years old, they’re chemically castrated. They’re not going to have children when they get older. They’re not given this data. So eight of those kids, out of those ten, are going to want to go back to be just a regular old person and they’re not going to be able to,” Beck said.

Fox News notes that Beck “came out as transgender in a 2013 interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper but expressed regret years later.”

In a separate interview last December with Robby Starbuck, to be exact, he said, “Everything you see on CNN with my face, do not even believe a word of it. Everything that happened to me for the last 10 years destroyed my life. I destroyed my life. I’m not a victim. I did this to myself, but I had help.”

“I take full responsibility. I went on CNN and everything else, and that’s why I’m here right now, I’m trying to correct that,” he added.

His attitude back in 2013 when he came out as transgender was entirely different. In fact, at the time he talked about how “courageous” it was for him to come out as transgender.

“Two of my SEAL team brothers, they said it’s a whole different type of courage. And I look at it, and it’s not something I look at myself or I say, you know, I’m courageous. I never thought about it that way. But there have been a lot of people that say that. And I guess it is,” he said.

As to why he decided to start speaking out, he explained on Fox News that he wants to ensure parents are aware of the realities of so-called “transgender care.”

“Ya’ll need to start leaving these kids alone. They’re castrating them. They’re doing these double mastectomies. They’re hurting kids. Eight out of ten, 80% of those kids, there’s studies, massive studies, 80% of those kids are not transgender. Eighty percent of those kids are just confused. Parents, you need to wake up. Don’t let your kids get into stuff. You better share all the data. All of the data,” he said.

During a previous Fox News appearance in December, Beck told then-host Tucker Carlson that transgenderism has turned into an ideology.

“The transgender [issue] originally started out as pretty basic and very rare. And now it’s kind of morphed into an ideology. And that’s what I’m speaking out about. Thinking about the ideology. I’m not talking about the people,” he said.

“Now, there’s a lot of transgender people out there; great folks. But the ideology as I’m talking about is becoming something where it’s being pushed in schools and young teenagers are having surgeries because it says they’re transgender. It’s an affirmation,” he added.

He further noted that there’s never any pushback, despite reports that the vast majority of people — particularly kids — who think they’re transgender eventually change their minds.

“Now as soon as somebody goes in there and says [they want to be] transgender, you’re basically labeled transgender, and they start pushing your surgery. That’s what I’m trying to stop because [there are] a lot of gay people out there who are transgender but not transgender in everything,” Beck said.
