Chloe Cole in Australia

Detransitioner Chloe Cole has been touring Australia, meeting politicians, supporters and speaking to the media. Her powerful story acts as a warning to law makers and health practitioners who lie to young people about solving their gender incongruence via misleading medical pathways.

Gender “affirming” actions such as undergoing a double mastectomy have left Chloe, and countless others, with lifetime medical issues that compounded their issues, not solved them.

Chloe is warning the government to take seriously the fact that many countries are moving away from such models due to the serious harm they are inflicting on young people. She highlighted the fact that her issues weren’t really “out of the ordinary for an awkward, tomboyish, adolescent girl.” Like other people, she also had trauma and other issues that contributed to her diagnosis but these were not questioned or appropriately addressed before she was taken down an irreversible pathway of harmful consequences.

Chloe’s powerful message encourages girls and women in particular that while there are difficulties in being female, there are some gifts that come with that as well.
