Chiara, Jesse, and Helena are three young women who formerly identified as transgender. Now they think it’s a false and dangerous ideology. Here they talk to National Review.
Chiara was raised by a single mom. She wanted to start hormonal treatment, followed by surgical intervention, but her mom said no. “It was very much a desperate thing for me. I wanted it right now. . . [I] wasn’t looking forward to the future. It was all about ‘if I don’t transition, I’m gonna die.’” Now she is so glad that she wasn’t allowed to go through with it.
