      IMO, it’s best that we be honest about the proportion of people who de-transition.  In case no one has noticed :), the right wing has produced wildly inflated claims regarding the proportion of people who de-transition.  In reality, it’s far less than 0.5% (.005).  It’s also important to note that there have been few, if any, instances of anyone wishing to de-transition after “irreversible” GRS.

        While there are a myriad of reasons why people detransition, I think the important one is whether or not it was significant in resolving gender dysphoria. External factors are largely out of the individual’s control and while they have statistical significance in understanding the entire picture, they really don’t speak to the internal factors. I wouldn’t be surprised if conservatives lump all of the possibilities together in order to make the numbers look larger than they really are, even though the internal numbers should be the only figures of merit…

      This seems like a no-brainer.  More information = better.

      I can think of no scenario in which holding back information about people for whom transition wasn’t successful is beneficial to someone considering it.

      Isnt this place here to help people through support and information?  Transition isn’t right for everyone.

      I feel knowing such stories is important. seeing that the grass isn’t always greener, and give pause to such an impactful life decision is really warranted. It is also why I think children should not be pushed to transition. I 100% support puberty blockers for Dysphoric children, but transitioning should be held until 18.

      As others have stated detransitioning is something that do happen for a number of different reasons we may personally find valid or not. I am always open to learn from other peoples perspectives as long as there is a mutual respect for each other’s unique circumstances.

      Statistics that I have seen show that it is a very small percentage of the trans population. Also, the vast majority are driven by external circumstances, such as finances, family issues, work issues and medical issues. Regret slots in behind all of those…

      Since we should wish to learn about all facets of this crazy roller coaster ride, I feel like tasteful, respectful discussion of any viewpoint must be heard. I can learn from anyone’s journey whether it aligns with mine or not.

      As long as the person discussing their detransition is not pushing an agenda (which applies to all of us, for sure!), I see no reason why not. I don’t necessarily think it should be a private group or be restricted, either.

      Good question!
