Referred to as Kobe, as his real name is not identified for privacy, he was born a biological male and transitioned to become a trans woman, getting castrated by a physician in the process, according to Fox News. After de-transitioning back to being male, he contended that he is a “patient for life” as part of his “gender-affirming care.”

Kobe is now attempting to accept himself for who he actually is and is warning other kids not to do what he has done. He says he “checked every box for what they call a trans adolescent.” The young man was described as being “effeminate” and he loved to play with Barbies. He loved the color pink as well.

He asserts that if he had never encountered gender ideology, he probably “would have just stayed a feminine boy. And there’s nothing wrong with that.”

“I felt unlovable as an effeminate man in society and everything. A feminine boy, actually. I was never a man, I’m trying to reclaim my manhood now and everything. It’s hard. I have breasts, I have the hip development of a woman, because I started the estrogen young. I have no gonads. You know, it’s hard. My skull never really masculinized,” he told Fox News.

“Kobe, in retrospect, looks back at the medical interventions as a subconscious use of ‘self-harm.’ During his early teenage years, he was struggling with internalized homophobia. ‘I mean, I saw it as a way out of my homosexuality, if that makes any sense,'” Fox News reported.

After he underwent gender reassignment surgery, he finally realized that he had made a terrible mistake.

“I was like, ‘Oh, wow, this is so great. I’m locked in my transition. … But then everything started to crack, and I couldn’t ignore the complications,” Kobe recounted. “I couldn’t ignore that I mutilated myself pretty much with the permission of a psychiatrist. It’s insane now, looking back. It’s just self-harm, you know.”

The boy first discovered transgenderism via YouTube, “And I said, ‘Oh, you can do this.’ You know, I don’t have to be a gay guy. I don’t have to be an embarrassment. And all this horrible stuff that I thought about my homosexuality, and it was like a light bulb. It was like, ‘This is a way out.’ I thought it was.”

Kobe informed his parents at age 11 that he was transgender. Under the advisement of older trans people online and other kids, he played the “suicide card” in order to get his parents to agree to puberty blockers which have been linked to bone density problems.

“I started using, like, ‘the suicide tactics,’ because that’s what they are. That’s what they tell us all to do. … I don’t want to use the word ‘groom,’ but we are like taught. I guess the older trans people teach us to say that stuff to get the health care and everything,” the teen revealed, according to Fox News.

“And I mean, there were times when I thought I was genuinely suicidal over gender dysphoria, but it was, I think, it was all just stuff that was in my head. I don’t think I would have ever been suicidal about being biologically male if I had never been exposed to that stuff,” he contended.

At age 13, he went on puberty blockers and then graduated to estrogen at 16. When he turned 19, Kobe was castrated.

“I was expecting it to help me help my mental health, and it didn’t do anything. I just wasted so much time, and all I did really was become a medical patient for life,” he sadly commented.

Due to the puberty blockers, Kobe claims his growth was “permanently stunted” and he has chronic pain in his spine. He also claims that it “suppresses your life,” “your drive to do anything,” and “your happiness.”

“I lost a lot of sexual function. I lost a lot of sensation down there,” Kobe remarked. “The mental stuff was really bad, but also like joint pain. It was just something near all the time. I was, like, aching and hurting.”

The estrogen also took its toll.

“It was constant brain fog. I was psychotic at some point. A lot of men that I know who went through this hormone replacement therapy, it’s the exact same thing for them. Estrogen just makes them snap,” he explained.

“The way that your metabolism sinks when you go on drugs, it’s insane. I had such a hard time maintaining the weight and everything. It led me toward some really dangerous eating disorder behaviors and everything, which I also don’t think I would have ever gotten into if it wasn’t for the trans stuff. And not being able to keep the weight off with the blockers and stuff like that,” he added.

Reassignment surgery for males is ghastly. The penis is split and inverted to create a vagina which has to be dilated for the rest of the person’s life.

A letter issued by a physician claims that Kobe’s hormone replacement was successful and that he was happier and more mentally stable.

“None of it was true. I wasn’t mentally stable. I hated myself. I wanted to die, and I just was constantly trying to become something that wasn’t. And it was awful. It was dissociating, it was terrible. But … and I’m sorry that – the estrogen – I lost my train of thought…” he asserted.

Due to an insurance problem, the reassignment surgery was canceled. Kobe opted for an orchiectomy procedure which removes the testes. He will have to take testosterone artificially for the rest of his life but he feels more normal now.

He still has pain in the area, especially during sex, and has trouble urinating.

“I don’t think it’ll ever not be an issue,” he noted. “I made the decision. I accept that and everything. It’s just something that I have to live with now.”

“I know now that so many people end up taking their own lives after the surgery. And honestly, if they had allowed to invert my genitalia into what looked like a female genitalia, I don’t think I would be here in a couple of years, honestly, because there’s no undoing that,” he warned.

After he woke up from the indoctrination, Kobe realize how insane all of this is.

“I just realized how insane it was. I mean, people were saying trans women get periods, [they] deserved to be in women’s sports, women’s locker rooms with their male genitalia just swinging out, that trans women deserve to be in women’s prison and stuff. I just saw that the rights of trans people were overtaking the rights of women, actual women. And I just couldn’t justify any of that,” he told Fox News.

“I just want [people] to know that I am strong. I see myself as very strong for what I went through. I’m a pretty compassionate person. I do care about kids that are suffering with gender dysphoria and everything. And I think that they deserve help. But I don’t think that that helps,” Kobe concluded.
