A former transgender woman says that cross-sex hormones and sex-change surgery doesn’t solve the underlying psychological problems associated with gender dysphoria.

Walt Heyer was 42 when he began taking female hormones and underwent sex-change surgery, including genital reconfiguration and breast implants. His doctors told him it was the only solution to his gender distress.

But they were wrong, Heyer explained in an op-ed published Monday in USA Today. The now 77-year-old detailed his transition from a man to a woman, then back to a man eight years later.

“After de-transitioning, I know the truth: Hormones and surgery may alter appearances, but nothing changes the immutable fact of your sex,” Heyer wrote. “You will hear the media say, ‘Regret is rare.’ But they are not reading my inbox, which is full of messages from transgender individuals who want the life and body back that was taken from them by cross-sex hormones, surgery and living under a new identity.”

Heyer eventually remarried. He and his wife, who have been married for 21 years, provide support to others through his website SexChangeRegret.com.

He has written several books on the topic, including “Sex Change-It’s Suicide: A Whistleblower Speaks Out” and “A Transgender’s Faith.”

    And this is where mental health needs to be concentrated on…for the parents brainwashing their children because they prefer a girl or boy over the child they have.

    I believe this should be laid at the doorsteps of the parents. Who has the most influence over a child from the time they are born? A child picks up the good and bad from their parents or whoever is spending the most time with the child. This behavior is promoted by people with sick minds.

    I believe the parents are the ones that plant the idea in a child’s mind about being the other gender. They either want the attention of a child cross dressing or want to be “part of the event”. And show everyone how cool they are. Children do not know the difference between boys and girls until much older. And by that time, they usually are pretty much set in the own gender. Unless the parents planted the idea in their mind early on.

    Sometimes I regret the choices that I made as a 42-year-old adult. When I do, I blame myself. No one was holding a gun to this man’s head. In fact, one has to jump through a lot of hoops before surgery even exists as an option. The dude was married, for God’s sake, and he was a cross-dresser. He blames everyone for his decisions: his grandmother, his uncle, his parents, his doctors, the media, etc. Give me a break. MAN UP and accept that the choices we make at 42 are our choices, for better or worse.
