Detransition There Is That Word Again!

Florida just came up with another devious bill against us.

Now they are going after businesses that are following federal law that requires for healthcare for us.

Florida ‘Reverse Woke Act’ would make employers liable for detransition care

Companies offering coverage for gender-affirming health care in Florida may soon find themselves responsible for the total costs of an employee’s detransition care under a new state Senate bill filed this week.

Florida’s proposed “Reverse Woke Act,” introduced Monday by Republican state Sen. Blaise Ingoglia, would require businesses that cover gender-affirming medical care to be financially responsible for any subsequent detransitions — even for individuals that it no longer employs.

Ingoglia, who previously served as the vice chair of Florida’s Republican Party, said in a statement on Monday that the bill is intended to protect residents from being “used as political pawns to advance a leftist agenda for the Governor of California” in an apparent reference to a new California law that safeguards access to gender-affirming health care for transgender youths and adults nationwide.


“Woke businesses need to be held accountable when offering to pay for gender affirming surgeries in other states, such as California, because they are nothing more than political decisions masquerading as healthcare and human resource decisions,” Ingoglia said on Monday.

Because of the federal Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is illegal discrimination for your health insurance plan to refuse to cover medically necessary transition-related care. So this proposed law will put companies in a real bind in Florida. Follow state law and you are violating federal law and if you follow the federal law and you are violating state law!

How prevalent is detransitioning?

How common is transgender treatment regret, detransitioning?

Many states have enacted or contemplated limits or outright bans on transgender medical treatment, with conservative U.S. lawmakers saying they are worried about young people later regretting irreversible body-altering treatment.

But just how common is regret? And how many youth change their appearances with hormones or surgery only to later change their minds and detransition?

How often do transgender people regret transitioning?

In updated treatment guidelines issued last year, the World Professional Association for Transgender Health said evidence of later regret is scant, but that patients should be told about the possibility during psychological counseling.

Dutch research from several years ago found no evidence of regret in transgender adults who had comprehensive psychological evaluations in childhood before undergoing puberty blockers and hormone treatment.

Some studies suggest that rates of regret have declined over the years as patient selection and treatment methods have improved. In a review of 27 studies involving almost 8,000 teens and adults who had transgender surgeries, mostly in Europe, the U.S and Canada, 1% on average expressed regret. For some, regret was temporary, but a small number went on to have detransitioning or reversal surgeries, the 2021 review said.

Research suggests that comprehensive psychological counseling before starting treatment, along with family support, can reduce chances for regret and detransitioning.

Yeah there are some who detransition and they do it for various reasons. Some because of family pressure. Some because of religious pressure, some because social pressures, and some because it wasn’t right for themselves.

I have know personally two who detransition, one detransition because he couldn’t find employment and the other person retransitioned because they originally detransitoned because of social and family pressure.

But other surgeries also have regret.

Do you regret having cosmetic surgery?

According to the poll, 83% of people who had had plastic surgery wouldn’t consider having any form of cosmetic procedure again. 2,638 people aged 18 and over, from around the UK, all of whom admitted to having had cosmetic surgery within the past five years, were quizzed about the procedure(s) they’d had done and how they felt about the results.

All were initially asked about the type of surgery they had had to which the most common answers were ‘breast augmentation’ (31%) and ‘rhinoplasty’ (27%). Alongside this, the most popular cosmetic procedures included ‘liposuction’ (24%), and ‘eyelid surgery’ (16%).

Maybe they should ban plastic surgery?
