I’m happy to present this conversation on Detransition Awareness Day, as my guest has an unusual and thought-provoking story of cross-sex confusion in childhood, and its eventual resolution. She speaks eloquently about her experience, as you’ll hear.

She also writes poignantly, as you may already have seen if you happened upon her moving six-part essay, ‘A Desistor’s Manifesto,’ which appeared recently on the PITT [Parents with Inconvenient Truths about Trans] Substack.

Here’s one of my favorite passages from that series:

“Real love says the truth. It doesn't pretend in the name of ‘love’. It doesn't hurt under the guise of ‘love’. Real love is not afraid of rejection. It's not hungry of social affirmation and cultural acceptance. Real love doesn't stand idle while someone's body, future and overall life are being decimated. Those behaviors are the very opposite of authentic love.”

I hope you’ll find Helene’s clarity, strength and resilience as hopeful as I do.
