Chris Beck became famous in 2013 when he decided to become a woman, known as Kristin Beck. What made his case so eye-grabbing and newsworthy was that he was a Navy Seal with an illustrious 20-year military career. He had received a Purple Heart as well as a Bronze Star during his 13 deployments. He became a poster boy for the transgender movement, taking part in Pride Parades. He was also used by the media and psychologists to “normalize” allowing transgender people into military service and to gain support for transgender transitioning.
Now, nine years later, Beck wants to detransition back to being male. He now claims that “everything that happened to me for the last ten years destroyed my life. I destroyed my life! I’m not a victim. I did this to myself, but I had help.”
He says that when he began transitioning in 2013, he walked into a psychologist’s office and, in one hour, was authorized for hormones and “all this other stuff.” This “other stuff” included facial feminization surgery. He did not undergo genital surgery, however.
Beck states the following:
“I was used….I was very naive, I was in a really bad way, and I got taken advantage of. I got propagandized. I got used badly by a lot of people who had knowledge way beyond me. They knew what they were doing. I didn’t…..This is a billion-dollar industry between psychologists, between surgeries, between hormones, between chemicals, between follow-up treatments. There are thousands of gender clinics popping up all over our country. And each of those gender clinics is going to be pulling in probably over $50 million.”
In a widely publicized interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper in 2013, Beck said that he had to suppress his true feelings his whole life of wanting to be female. He/she said that she would go to Victoria’s Secret and buy lingerie and pretend it was for a fictitious girlfriend in order to avoid questions. He/she said it was easier to go shopping on holidays such as Valentine’s Day because more men would be in the store. He/she published a book about her life as a member of SEAL Team 6, which was entitled “Warrior Princess: A US Navy SEAL’s Journey to Coming out Transgender.”
Now, Beck says, “Everything you see on CNN with my face, do not even believe a word of it.”
Beck is coming out publicly about his decision to detransition because he desires to advocate for the protection of children against the “transgender craze”. He refers to it as cultish and not science-based.
In another statement made by Beck:
“The parents are so desperate to fit in with this ideology because of the fear of the ‘us’, ‘them’, they don’t want to be ‘othered’. So now they are using the children as these trophies of like ‘look at me. I have a child that I am accepting of.’”
Beck is just one of a growing number of outraged and regretful individuals and parents who bought into the transgender ideology. This pushback is being referred to as a coming storm over the trans “Tuskegee Experiment”. Some have said that the trans movement is the equivalent of the Tuskegee experiment.
The Tuskegee experiment, which began in 1932, involved the recruitment of 600 African American men in Alabama to study the contagious venereal disease, syphilis. The men were told they were being treated for “bad blood.” The men were given aspirin and minerals. Fifteen years into the study, penicillin became the recommended treatment for syphilis. But doctors from the US Public Health Service convinced local doctors not to treat the study participants with penicillin in order for the full progression of the disease to be studied. Thus, no care was provided for these men as they went blind, insane, and/or experienced many health problems and eventually death. Many spouses subsequently acquired the disease, and it was passed on to 19 children at birth.
There is now concern that the “Transgender Experiment” will be even more damaging and devastating than Tuskegee because it involves thousands of more victims. The transgender industry has been accused also of targeting victims of autism.
There are plenty of people and organizations to point the finger to as promoters of this: medical societies, hospitals, doctors, government health agencies, Big Tech, Corporate Media, Hollywood Celebs, leftist Democrats, and the list goes on.
If kids claim to be transgender, they must be affirmed in their wishes according to the transgender movement. Any psychologist who goes contrary to this risks losing his job and license to practice.
The growing national fury over transgenders and unfair advantages in women’s sports will only escalate. In 2017, the famous tennis player John McEnroe referred to Serena Williams as the greatest female tennis player ever but added that if she played against men, she would be ranked 700th overall. The mainstream media blew up with outrage over this. McEnroe was later asked on “CBS This Morning to apologize.” He declined.
Have Americans lost their collective minds? We are now living in an upside-down world. If we have learned anything from history, the time to fight back against dangerous and evil ideologies is early on before it becomes firmly embedded in the minds of clueless people.
Speak up, America!!!
