Watch Tucker Carlson interview with a lady who detransitioned deleted YouTube video
YouTube removes Tucker Carlson’s interview video for “violating YouTube’s policy on spam, deceptive practices and scams”
Helena Kerschner started using testosterone when she was 18 years old. After digging into online fan-fiction forums, she was drawn into the world of trans ideology and convinced that she was not female. She spoke with Tucker Carlson, and a video of her interview was pulled down by YouTube for “violating YouTube’s policy on spam, deceptive practices and scams.”
The video featured a segment of a longer interview Kerschner conducted with Carlson about her transition and detransition, what led her down the path of gender identity exploration and questioning, how she found her way out, and what she thinks about the gender industry now that she’s had her experience.
Kerschner said that it was completely normal for not only young girls but often young boys to feel uncomfortable with themselves, uncomfortable with their bodies. But we have this ideology that is especially prevalent online that says that if you have those feelings, that means you’re trans. She continues by saying that there are literally people who say, if you don’t even like your voice on a recording, that’s a sign of gender dysphoria, and you need to go see a medical professional because you’re trans.
Kerschner has spoken out about her experience, claiming that she loathed herself when she was 15 and was easily “sucked into gender ideology online.”
Her school supported her during her transition, and she was able to get testosterone without difficulty. “Was very damaging,” she remarked.
An important question
“How do you feel now at 23? Looking back on what happened?” Carlson asked.
She said that she felt honestly grateful for the experience because it taught her a lot about the world and about herself, but she really felt afraid for these other young girls like herself who might not be, you know, she considered herself lucky that she was able to get out of it unscarred really medically, but there are so many young people who can’t say the same. And psychologically as well.
It’s just devastating to, especially from a young age, be lied to, by adults at school, and by medical professionals and told that your body is wrong, you need to change it, you need to get hormones, you need to get surgeries, that’s devastating for a young person. So she was just really concerned for younger girls and boys like she once was being led down this path and being hurt by it.
Carlson discussed the permanent consequences of many of the prescriptions provided to young individuals who want to alter their gender, and Kerschner noted that even the White House has said that some of the effects of gender transition medicines are reversible, when they are not.
“The White House actually just put out a chart yesterday that says that some of these steps are reversible or partially reversible,” Kerschner explained. “However, that is a gross simplification of the facts. You can’t simply pretend like it never happened, you can’t just take it back when you start taking a cross-sex hormone since it’ll offer you not just physical but psychological alterations.”
