Former Patient Speaks Out: ‘Gender Transition’ Regret Deserves a Voice| National Catholic Register

NEW YORK, N.Y. — New York woman Grace Lidinsky-Smith said she regrets going through “gender transition” surgery, in a June 25 essay. Lidinsky-Smith wrote that she’s not the only person who has experienced wrongly prescribed hormone therapy and surgery by medical providers who operate under no commonly agreed standard of care. Her June 25 essay, There’s No Standard for Care When it Comes to Trans Medicine, was published by Newsweek. “Activists may not want to admit it, but I am not alone in my regret,” she said. Lidinsky-Smith said her self-examination led her to discover other “detransitioners” with similar stories. Some people stopped a gender-transition procedure quickly, she said, while “others were on cross-sex hormones for years and had multiple surgeries before deciding the path wasn’t right for them.”
