‘Hundreds’ of transgender people who have transitioned want to un-do their surgery, a campaigner who decided to stop identifying as male has revealed.
Charlie Evans, 28, from Newcastle, was born female but identified as male for almost ten years before deciding to stop taking testosterone and become a woman again.
‘Hundreds’ of people have contacted her, including 30 in Newcastle alone, asking for guidance around detransitioning – the process of becoming the gender they were born – after she went public with her decision last year, she told Sky News.
‘I’m in communication with 19 and 20-year-olds who have had full gender reassignment surgery who wish they hadn’t, and their dysphoria hasn’t been relieved, they don’t feel better for it,’ Ms Evans said.
The people who get in contact with her are usually in their 20s, ‘mostly same-sex attracted’ and often autistic, she added. (Read more from “Former Transgender: Hundreds Who Had Gender Reassignment Surgery Wish They Hadn’t, Want to Transition Back (VIDEO)” HERE)
