33. Emelie's De-transition & Path to Self-Acceptance Whose Body Is It

    • Society & Culture

In this episode I’m joined by Emelie, a Swedish de-transitioned woman, public speaker and activist. We discuss her experience in searching for an answer to feeling different from other girls growing up and how she came to believe she was a man stuck in a woman's body. She shares how her mental health declined steadily after coming out as "trans" despite having a decently affirming circle, and the path that led her to ultimately suppress her initial instincts against medicalization by paying for a double mastectomy out-of-pocket. She describes enduring total dissociation from her body, how talking with trans-identified women peaked her post-op, and the grief and anger she experiences from losing so much in the face of the trans-affirming healthcare system. We cover nuanced pronoun usage, self-contradictory online influencers, and the insane lottery of choosing life-long medicalization in place of self-acceptance.
