Once identifying as a transgender male and undergoing a double mastectomy, Daisy's path eventually led her to detransition. Now, she faces the consequences of her past decisions, particularly the devastating realization of her inability to breastfeed her newborn child. "The hopelessness of my situation is hitting me hard," she wrote in a recent post on X.

Daisy's bio poignantly captures her evolution: "25-year-old wife and mom of 2. Once a spritely wide-eyed transboy, now a grouchy catholic woman. Believe it or not, life’s better now."

In a moment of vulnerability, Daisy shared on social media the pain of not being able to breastfeed her child. "If only I could somehow go back in time to 2018 and show myself these photos. Those are not happy tears. This was her very first feeding. 40 minutes old. I know breastfeeding does not work for every woman, but the hopelessness of my situation is hitting me hard this time," she wrote.

The Sad Truth About Sex Change Surgeries

Daisy’s despair underlines a harsh reality: "I don’t even have the chance to try. There is no lactation consultant, no surgery, nothing that can ever make it so my children can suck their mother’s breast. There’s nothing that my body can create for them. There never will be. And the worst part is, it’s all my fault."

For those who were confused by the post, Daisy provided additional context to her struggle: "I’m a female detransitioner. I used to be transgender, identifying as a man, from 2015-2020. I had a double mastectomy or 'top surgery' in 2018 because I believed I would commit suicide if I didn’t. I do have a few screws loose still, but in the past, had a few more."

The insistence among those who push gender-affirming care that minors will commit suicide if they don't receive these life-altering surgeries is not only false, but it also has created endless stories of regret like Daisy's.

In response to Daisy's heartfelt disclosure, popular commentator Allie Beth Stuckey offered words of encouragement: "Sweet Daisy. She is blessed to have YOU as a mother. God chose you, knowing everything you can and can’t give her. His grace is sufficient for you both. Congratulations."

Daisy replied, "Thank you, Allie. I thank God every day for my babies. It’s just hard in these first days/weeks when my body knows what it’s supposed to do, but can’t."

Daisy Strongin's story is a reminder of the lasting consequences that stem from these reckless, painful decisions being pushed on children and young adults. It also highlights the power of grace, forgiveness, and the healing power of motherhood.
