In early October, the United Kingdom’s SkyNews ran an article about the “Detransition Advocacy Network”. A lot of young trans people were help to become the sex they were at birth. The topic portrays de-transitioning is much more common then you think. Luis Asquith said “I think the reason why detransition stories are popular in this given time is because it neatly fits into this idea that young people especially are being made to be trans”.While regarding how many trans people de-transition is spare. People who work with the trans industry say numbers are really low because it is very uncommon. In other cases for a child that has not reached puberty it’s better for them to seek some help before they start transitioning because they might not want to be transitioning at all, it could just be depression or anything else that may be causing them stress. Once your child starts to reach puberty and hit a mental health in life and they still feel as if they want to view themselves differently they potentially can. You just have to be there to support them and be by their side as much as you can .
