‘If detransition is real, the whole “gender identity” house of cards collapses’ — Ed Diehl, OR state rep

I received confirmation this week from Legislative Legal Council that House Bill 2002-A specifically EXCLUDES DETRANSITION TREATMENTS from insurance coverage.

With this bill, Medicaid and private insurance are mandated to cover treatments when your “gender identity” and sex don’t align. But, if you believe you have made a mistake and want a procedure to align with your sex, coverage will not be mandated. 

The wording in the bill is intentional.

…SO HERE IS THE CRUX OF THE ISSUE: To detransition is to demonstrate that gender identity is not immutable. 

By including detransition treatment coverage in the bill, the true believers would be acknowledging that detransition is real, that some children and young adults are being harmed, and that the professionals can be wrong. And that is something they simply cannot admit.
