What happens when you think you're on a hero's journey, but end up on the wrong path? In this episode, co-host Laura describes her experience of medical gender transition and detransition as she realizes the path to her authentic self lies far beyond the realm of gender.
<p>We dive deep into the factors led to her decision to transition and her process of detransition and radical self-acceptance. We also discuss the role of socialization on young people's identities and contemplate the impact of trauma, eating disorders, isolation, and gender nonconformity, questioning the rationale and effectiveness of medical gender intervention to treat the human condition.
