Do as many as 80% of transgender people detransition?

No. One study claimed an 80% desistance rate in trans children, but subsequent investigation has confirmed that this is a complete myth. The study in question did not differentiate between young people with gender dysphoria, young people who socially but not medically transitioned, and young people who were simply exploring gender-diversity. In fact, nearly half of the children involved in the study could not be located at its conclusion, and were recorded as ‘desisters’ by default. The only justifiable conclusion that could be drawn from the study on a subsequent review of its data, was that strong gender dysphoria was a good predictor of future medical transition.
