“You’ll be miserable and unhappy with your body for the rest of your life”

This post shows a few more examples of young teens coming to online transgender communities and being convinced to take hormones and/or puberty blockers.

A 16 year old boy who has been questioning his gender makes a post, stating that “even when I was young, characters in the games I played and protagonists in my imaginary stories and worlds were almost always female”, and that he wants to be “a social, somewhat nerdy, somewhat scene, girl who is tomboyish in attitude but not in looks”. He also plans to “get more into fashion and socialize a lot more” as a girl.

The commenters jump in to stress the importance of immediately transitioning:

“If you won’t do it you’ll regret it for the rest of your life.”

“Yes, seriously don’t wait! (…)  it’s best to start as soon as you can. These feelings will never go away”. Note that the commenter in the above screenshot is twice the age of the poster.

“Puberty ends around 17. If you don’t do it when you’re young. You’ll be miserable and unhappy with your body for the rest of your life.”

Less than a month later, the same kid posts this: Getting told to wait until 18, don’t know if I can survive that long

Another poster, confused and distressed, asks “I want to be female so much but is that even possible?”

And is told that yes, it is possible:

“What is there to be afraid of? You’ll be way cuter after HRT. (…) The longer you exist without HRT, the more your body’s natural testosterone will fuck you up. So don’t be afraid of it, embrace it!”

In this post, another 16 year old wants to know how to get medications to halt puberty, and receives advice regarding specific subreddits, as well as concrete advice on how to order and obtain packages with a PO box, as well as offers to chat via PM:

And finally, yet another 16 year old looking for advice on obtaining hormones, behind parents’ backs. In this comment chain a person twice their age offers advice, and ends the conversation by asking “mind if I PM you?”

This is what trans people are saying online. This is what happens to kids who stumble onto “helpful” adults online.

  1. I think /r/TransDIY is a far more active resource for that problem.

    I agree it’s terrible how they are facilitating this level of things.

    It’s not that far to narcotics. Not to make a hysteria.

  2. The [transgender people] on Reddit are great for entertainment. They are so delusional. The last part about the DIY hormones is like when […] drewiepoodle tried to lure that kid to its house last year, which you did cover on your blog.

    Can’t they get into legal trouble for even insinuating to children on where and how to do this stuff?

    I’ve seen that stuff a lot ‘The longer you wait to transition, the harder it will be to ‘pass’. It’s all apart of their plan. To get younger and younger ‘trans’ people to think they are ‘trans’ and to make the public sympathize more with their ’cause’.

    I hope the world wakes up before its too late.

    Keep fighting the good fight.
