The Myth of Trans Regrets
Life is messy. There are those who regret transitioning. Maybe they made a mistake, or maybe their friends or family would not accept them. Whatever the reason, they deserve our respect and our help.
Keep in mind, though, that many of the people who talk about regretters do so because they fear gender variance. They want to ‘prove’ that trans people should not go down that road.
They are wrong. The great majority of those who transition report that their lives have gotten better. And they do not regret what they have done.
That does not mean that all trans people need to transition. Far from it. But those who do need to, deserve our support.
