An eye-opening CBS 60 Minutes report on young people who experienced regret and chose to detransition after being rushed by doctors and counselors into undergoing transgender hormonal and surgical treatments has met with a backlash from LGBT activists for attem`pting to tell the truth about an important medical issue.

The existence of detransitioners – those who seek to reverse the ravages of transgender medical treatments – is an inconvenient truth for LGBT activists who want to suppress stories challenging the preferred narrative that some peoples’ bodies do not match their gender, and that ‘transitioning’ is a wonderful means to make their lives whole.

Their existence proves that narrative false and risks destroying the burgeoning lucrative market for gender clinics that have sprung up around the country and Big Pharma that sees in transitioners potential lifetime customers.

“It greatly concerns me where the field has been going. I feel like what is happening is unethical and irresponsible in some places,” Dr. Laura Edwards-Leeper, a psychologist at Boston Children’s Hospital’s youth gender clinic, told interviewer Leslie Stahl.

“Everyone is very scared to speak up because we’re afraid of not being seen as being affirming or being supportive of these young people or doing something to hurt the trans community. But even some of the providers are trans themselves and share these concerns,” Edwards-Leeper said.
