What is detransition?

Detransition is when a person who has already transitioned returns, for any reason, to live as the gender corresponding to their birth assigned sex. Detransition can be a really loaded term, and we’re not using it here to mean an unsatisfactory or regrettable result. Rather, we’re simply referring to the small group of people who try gender transition and then go back. Other terminology used is ‘retransition’ or ‘desistance’.
