Detransitioner Maritza Cummings: What is it like to be born in the wrong body? Where did this phenomenon come from? I will explain my view point and lived experience that I've been through for the past 38 years.
First, I lived as a lesbian for 22 years, then I transitioned and lived as a male transsexual for an additional 17 years.
I was born in Havana, Cuba. My mother was given a form of estrogen to prevent miscarriages. She was able to carry me to term, but not without ramifications. I dealt with all sorts of health issues ranging from asthma to reproductive female issues. I had a deeper voice, bad menses, and a slew of emotional and neurological instabilities.
I was sexually molested from the age of 8 to the age of 12. I was socially awkward and did not fit in with other kids. I was mature for my age and preferred the company of adults over children in my age group. My parents were dysfunctional. My father was an abusive alcoholic and control freak; my mother was emotionally incapable of dealing with my demands --she was a very ill woman and was very spoiled by my grandmother.
I truly believe that many of our childhood traumas come back to haunt us as adults. Many unresolved emotional issues show themselves in various faucets of disassociation and grief, to the point we create poor coping skills to mask the real pain. I believe same-sex attraction stems from rejection, sexual abuse, and/or a mother or a father wound.

Erin Brewer developed a trans identity in first grade. She did everything she could to be a boy. Her teacher sent her to the school psychologist for assessment because her behavior was concerning. Thankfully the school psychologist did not affirm her, instead she came up with a plan for her mother and teacher to help Erin manage her difficult feelings. It took years for Erin’s trans identity to resolve but she is thankful that she got the help she needed to address the underlying cause of her trans identity rather than being told she was born in the wrong body and inherently flawed.
Erin grew up in Salt Lake City and earned a B.S. from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. She has a Doctorate in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University.
Erin shares her deeply personal story to help others understand the damage that is being done to our children by the transgender movement.

Maria Polaris (not her real name) and her husband’s lives were turned upside down when their daughter ran away from home after her first year of college in 2015. Someone they didn’t know picked up their daughter and helped her attempt to change sex.
"Since then," Maria says, "our family has had to find ways to cope, because once a child is 18, they can do whatever they want in the U.S. including, full medical transition without psychological assessments. This has led to regret and grave errors in the medical community. Ohio has six major gender clinics with the largest one boasting over 1600 patients (funded by a family in the process of transitioning their own child since age 3)."
Maria is now part of a support group for parents of Rapid-Onset Gender Dysphoria. They are also active advocates for more humane, evidence-based public policy in the area of gender identity.
No one is "born in the wrong body."
Previously it was nearly exclusively older males that wanted to "transition" to female. Now there’s a huge number of young girls, mostly teenage girls -- a 5,000% increase. Even Catholic schools that have these "Spectrum Clubs." PHLAG ("Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays," with over 400 chapters and 200,000 members and supporters) and GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) are culprits offering money to schools to get their resources in the school.

(February 11, 2021) Dr J is once again a guest of Fr. Rob Jack on Sacred Heart Radio's Driving Home the Faith. Today they're discussing Planned Parenthood's emerging new business model: transgender hormones. The sidewalk counselors are seeing it even as the kids aren't seeing what they're getting themselves into. Planned Parenthood, of course, is seeing repeat customers and dollar signs.

They're discussing the diocese of Lansing's policy on gender identity, which is a counterpoint to the policies recently enacted in other areas, including the public education system in Virginia. They also touch on the importance of calling out good behavior, positive and negative peer pressure, unassailable insurance directives, language control, and female erasure.
