The Detransition Diaries is a documentary film that recounts the stories of three young women, who felt that their trauma and dysphoria would be fixed by trying to medically transition from female to male. Watch the official trailer here.
Medical professionals, therapists, counselors, and even school officials affirmed that they were indeed ‘trans’ but only once they started down this path, which promised to offer hope, they each came to realize that they had made a terrible decision.
In The Detransition Diaries, you will meet Helena, Cat, and Grace, who all came from different backgrounds but shared similar struggles. Not wanting to live in this world as female, all began medical transition by taking testosterone and one went as far as having a double mastectomy. Each changed their names, their hair, their pronouns, thinking that this would help them and relieve them from their duress and suicidal ideations. That didn’t happen.
This film focuses on the rising number of young girls and women who decide to transition. Statistics show that between 2016 and 2017 the rate of gender surgeries among women and girls quadrupled in the U.S. and continues to rise. This is due, in part, to the reality of this new social contagion.
The video includes Kellie-Jay Keen, a British Women’s Rights Campaigner, Libby Emmons, Sr. Editor of The Post Millennial who has written extensively on the transgender debate, as well as author and consultant Natasha Chart, who as a young girl with autism now works to protect autistic children from being affirmed that they are perhaps “born in the wrong body”.
