Chloe Cole was 15 years old when she agreed to let a “gender-affirming” surgeon remove her healthy breasts. Her “brutal” transition from female to male was anything but the romanticised “gender journey” that was portrayed. “They guilted my parents into allowing them to do this”. They said, “Either, you’ll have a dead daughter or an alive son”. She was convinced she would be happy and feel like a whole person. Now 18, it’s as if a nightmare is ending. Cole is one of a growing number of young “Detransitioners” who reject current trends in transgender ideology and oppose the “gender-affirming” model of care being pushed by progressive lawmakers at state and federal levels.
