On Monday, Ritchie Herron bravely told his horrific story of transitioning from a man to a woman in a Twitter thread. Some of the tweets in his thread were removed as they were “mass reported,” but he is not going to allow that to silence him.
Herron is a 35-year-old detransitioned man from the North East of England, UK. He medically transitioned at the age of 26 and has been on hormone replacement therapy since. At age 30, he underwent genital reassignment surgery. In March 2022, Herron publicly came out as detrans.
I want to tell everyone what they took from us, what irreversible really means, and what that reality looks like for us.
No one told me any of what I’m going to tell you now.

Herron has been involved in detrans advocacy, appearing on podcasts, writing about his experience and is a member of Genspect’s team.
Genspect is an international alliance of professional groups, parents, trans people, detransitioners, and others who advocate for a better model of care than the current “affirmative” approach.
