Chloe Cole, a 19-year-old detransitioner, broke down during House testimony Thursday when she spoke to the mother of a transgender child about the dangers of medical transition procedures.
Cole addressed Myriam Reynolds, another witness on the panel, who is a professional counselor and allowed her child to pursue transgender medical interventions.
“I understood that Mrs. Reynolds is scared for her child and I just want to set the record straight that I don’t hate her, I don’t think anybody in this room hates her,” said Cole, who started medically transitioning at the age of 12. “In fact, I see my own mother and my own father in her and that clearly she really loves her child, and she’s doing the best with what she’s been given.”
Cole began to break down, continuing, “Unfortunately, it’s not much, and for that, I’m sorry. I think every parent deserves the utmost grace and guidance with how to help their child. That being said, I don’t wish for her child to have the same result that I did….”
