I don't think there is a thread on this yet? Apologies if I've missed it.

Highlights the dangers of transitioning GNC children and young adults.

I think it was discussed at the time, it's quite an old article (from March) - I remember reading it & pretty sure there was a thread about it.

Ah OK, that makes sense - it has resurfaced in the BBC news homepage, which is interesting timing given the events of this week. I've just reread it and it is pretty uncompromising in spelling out the dangers of telling young GNC lesbians that transitioning is the solution.

The World Service has been running a short series of people's experiences with detransitioning. They were advertising it last night, so I noticed.

I listened to the World Service docs at the time - was surprised to hear the Drag Race contestant Eureka pop up as a detransitioner, don’t recall it being mentioned on the show at all.
