‘It’s an assembly line’: De-transitioned man says parents encouraging kids to become transgender are guilty of ‘child abuse’

A man who lived for eight years as a trans woman before de-transitioning has called out the “child abuse” from adults who encourage transgenderism in kids, saying it’s an “abhorrent” interference in their natural development.

Born male, Walt Heyer began transitioning to female at 42 years-old. He lived that way for eight years before realizing he had been a victim of childhood abuse and began the process of returning to his birth-assigned gender.

In an explosive interview with controversial conservative host Candace Owens, Heyer re-told the story of his troubled childhood; how his grandmother sparked gender confusion by encouraging him to wear a purple dress at the age of four – and how he suffered sexual abuse at the hands of an uncle as a direct result.

He recounts his own personal experience of visiting a top gender therapist seeking help at the age of 41. Married with two children and a successful career, Heyer was still suffering mental anguish after years of being unable to talk about his past. After only two sessions, the therapist prescribed hormones and wanted him to approve reassignment surgery.

“Don’t let them tell you that they go through some exhaustive psychological counseling because it’s absolute baloney – they just approve, approve, approve, affirm, affirm, affirm – give them hormones, give them surgery. It’s an assembly line.

Heyer ultimately divorced his wife, underwent surgery and was fired from his job.

The comments sound provocative at a time when society teaches that the only acceptable response to a questioning or confused child is to immediately support their decision to live as another gender. He is not looked upon kindly among trans activists, who say that, while he may have been misdiagnosed as transgender while actually suffering from a “dissociative disorder,” that is not the case with all trans individuals.

Yet, Heyer is not alone in some of his conclusions. Others have warned of the dangers of pumping kids full of hormones and using surgery as a drastic quick-fix to a problem which may be more layered and complicated.

In the UK, the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) recently cautioned that there is a lack of “robust evidence” about the long-term impact of puberty-blocking drugs and hormones given to trans-identified kids. Whistleblower Dr. Kirsty Entwistle, who’d previously worked at the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS), has said “traumatic early experiences” – including sexual abuse – can lead a child to present with gender dysphoria, but doctors are refusing to fully investigate these cases for fear of being labelled “transphobic.”

Addressing the high suicide rate among those who have completed the surgical transition, Heyer blames what he believes is the realization that they can “never” really fully become another gender, which results in further depression.

“It’s insane to treat depression with hormones and surgery, but that’s what they do.
