This is something I've found myself thinking about ever since I came across Ben aka GNC Centric on YouTube and how she makes a lot of support videos for young Lesbians and especially Detransitioners since she is de-trans herself. Things especially got even better when she started doing podcast type livestreams where she co-hosts with other GNC women who are also de-trans as well, well at least one of them while the other who is older than them is a butch lesbian and they sometimes bring on other "de-trans" or masculine presenting women as guests and talk about all kinds of issues surrounding Trans ideology and how it's been affecting children and even lesbians.
I look at the comments on the video and I see so many young girls thanking them for talking about the stuff they do, some even saying that they're not feeling as "dysphoric" after finding other women just like them and I'm sure the older butch lesbian on the stream especially helps since I have a feeling a lot of these commenters are young girls in their teens.
Anyway it really got me thinking. Do you think that maybe what can help with this whole trans kid phenomenon topic is if these kids got to speak and interact with older GNC people? I mean the blunt honest truth about these "gender clinics" is that the therapists usually arent Gender nonconforming and honestly, there's only so much a non GNC person can say to these kids but at the end of the day, they just may not fully understand why these kids are feeling the way they do and I can't help but feel that if these kids were talking to older GNC men and women, it could do a lot to help them work through their issues.
On a few occasions on YouTube, I've spoken with kids who think they are trans in the comments section and I was even able to help this 17 year old feminine boy who was thinking he was trans by simply talking to him, challenging him, and reassuring him that there's nothing wrong with him. He thanked me for taking the time to talk with him and he said that while his gender therapist did ask similar things I did, he said they didn't go as in depth with them like I did and part of me thinks it's because these people just can't, it's a whole different world for them that they just wouldn't understand the way us grown GNC people can since we all went through what these kids being "transed" have been.
But what do you all think? Do you think this could definitely help these "trans" kids?
