Walt Heyer has undergone some criticism as of late for “bashing” transgender surgery and many people online are calling him out for it… but they fail to realize that Heyer as LIVED IT!
Heyer did the entire treatment; hormones, having his male member removed, the whole works and now the Post-op survivor has declared that the entire process, and even “longing” of living as a woman, is a huge mistake on his part, claiming that you are not a woman but just “mutilating yourself”.
As reported by The Daily Wire:
Writing in The Daily Signal, Walt Heyer, who underwent the full transgender procedure of taking hormones and having his genitalia removed so he could live as a woman before ultimately realizing he made a terrible mistake, asserts that even the world-famous surgeon who operated on him admitted that changing one’s hormones and removing one’s genitalia do not change a biological man into a biological woman.
Heyer recalls that his “sex change” surgery from male to female was performed by Stanley Biber in Trinidad, Colorado. He notes that Trinidad was nicknamed the “Sex Change Capital of the World,” and that Biber himself said he performed over 5,000 such surgeries during his career.
Eight years after the surgery, Heyer recognized his mistake. He writes that in order to legally change his gender back to male, he had to file a petition with the California Superior Court that verified he met certain criteria.
As reported by The Daily Signal:
That’s the key to understand: Hormones and surgical changes can affect one’s external appearance, but no innate biological change of sex occurs.
This truth should seem obvious, but discontented trans women contact me who say they didn’t know that they could never become a “real” woman. They are unhappy and opting to go back to the gender of their birth.
False Hope Could Lead to More Suicide
A 2004 U.K. Guardian article, “Sex Changes Not Effective,” points out: “While no doubt great care is taken to ensure that appropriate patients undergo gender reassignment, there’s still a large number of people who have the surgery but remain traumatized—often to the point of committing suicide.”
Too many post-surgical patients contact me to report they deeply regret the gender change surgery and that the false hope of surgical outcomes was a factor. For children, the focus on encouraging, assisting, and affirming them toward changing genders at earlier and earlier ages, with no research showing the outcomes, may lead to more suicides.
Others Advocate Less Surgery
A growing number of people like me, 50 years after the first surgery at Johns Hopkins University Gender Clinic in 1966, are advocating the scaling back of the radical, irreversible, often unnecessary genital mutilation surgeries.
Rene Jax, in his 2016 book, “DON’T Get on The Plane!” says, “Sex change surgery will ruin your life.”
Jax and I have had similar experiences. Both of us were approved for hormones and surgery to resolve our gender dysphoria, and after following the medically prescribed full regimen of hormones and genitalia surgery, and living as women, both of us came away with the same conclusions:
- Gender change surgery was a destructive body mutilation and a waste of time and money.
- After the medically-certified gender change, life didn’t improve.
- Gender dysphoria, that feeling of unease with one’s gender, persisted, and was not relieved as promised.
