March 12 was Detrans Awareness Day, a date that provides an opportunity for those who fell victim to the cruel ploy of youth medical transitioning to educate others. Many victims of transitioning have been separated from their families, had their healthy bodies permanently mutilated, and seen their mental health ignored and further devastated. Voices of the detrans community need to be heard; their stories need to be told. They need and deserve compassion, advocacy on their behalf, and respect for being brave voices in a culture which rejects and shames those who choose to leave the medical transition cult.
