Former Transgender People Says Pressure From Social Media and Friends Made Them Transition

Four women who formerly identified as transgender men are speaking out, saying influence from social media and friends led them to transition as teens.

Their condition, known as “rapid-onset gender dysphoria,” is controversial in the transgender community because it implies transgenderism can be a fad, and not something born solely from internal feelings. In rapid-onset gender dysphoria, teens transition quickly due to influence from friends and social media.

The four women are part of the Pique Resilience Project.

“All four of us experienced Rapid-Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD) and subsequently identified as trans men for several of our teenage years,” their website says. “We have all since detransitioned/desisted and have been able to explore other individual factors that may have caused or exacerbated our dysphoria.”

National Review interviewed three of them. The women don’t use their last names.

“It was very much the ‘in’ thing to do,” Helena said of transitioning.

She was, she said, “very confused about life.”
