(Natural News) A former U.S. Navy SEAL who spent nearly 10 years living as a transgender woman is now undergoing the detransitioning process while warning about the lies being perpetuated by the left regarding gender ideology.
“Chris Beck served in the Navy SEALs for 20 years on special operations teams and also served on the famed SEAL Team Six. Through 13 deployments, he received over 50 awards and medals for his service, including the Bronze Star with valor and the Purple Heart,” Christian Broadcasting Network News reported.
In an interview with conservative filmmaker and former U.S. congressional candidate Robby Starbuck, Beck explained what happened between the time he left the military to when he realized that living the transgender life as Kristan Beck was a lie and more “cultish” than anything else.
He told Starbuck that he was offered and prescribed hormones almost immediately when he first sought them around 2012 or so, without so much as a consult, per se, or given a period of time to be sure and comfortable with his request.
“I walked into a psychologist’s office [and] in one day I have a letter in my hand saying I was transgender. I was authorized for hormones. I was authorized all this other stuff,” Beck explained.
Navy SEAL Chris Beck came out in 2013 as transgender. @andersoncooper did a special on @cnn about it. His story was used as propaganda to allow trans people in the military and to popularize the issue. Now Chris is ready to expose the truth.

He went on to say that when he ‘came out’ as a trans woman on CNN host Anderson Cooper’s show in 2013 after writing the book “Warrior Princess” with psychologist Anne Speckhard that everything about the program was nothing more than “propaganda,” and that the left-wing host and network used him.
“Everything you see on CNN with my face, do not believe a word of it,” he said. “Everything that happened to me for the last ten years destroyed my life. I destroyed my life. I’m not a victim. I did this to myself, but I had help.”
Beck, like many other detransitioners, has become a huge advocate for protecting children against the “transgender craze.”
“There are thousands of gender clinics being put up over all of America,” he shared. “As soon as [kids] go in and say, ‘I’m a tomboy or this makes me feel comfortable’ and then a psychologist says, ‘oh, you’re transgender.’ And then they set you on hormones – the same hormones they are using for medical castration for pedophiles. Now they are giving this to healthy 13-year-olds,” he explained.
“Does this seem right?” he asked. “This is why I am trying to tell America to wake up.”
In October, a trio of detransitioning young people called into a school board meeting in California to warn against pushing children to engage in transgender therapies and surgeries.
Chloe Cole, Abel Garcia, and Cat Cattinson called the Conejo Valley Unified School District’s (CVUSD) Board of Education during the meeting’s public comment period to express their vehement opposition to “the pushing of trans ideology which, they said, led them to believe they were transgender and pursue permanent life-altering medical transition procedures,” CharlieKirk.com reported.
“I’m calling because I’m concerned about the messaging directed at kids by the school surrounding gender identity ideology,” said Cattinson, a 30-year-old molecular biologist and a detransitioned woman who thought she was a boy after being propagandized with trans ideology at the age of 13.
“I began identifying as the opposite sex, a man, and [that belief] negatively affected me for the next fifteen years,” Cattinson added. “Puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries are irreversible.
“By affirming a child’s cross-sex identification, they are encouraged to reject their biological sex, seeking drugs and surgeries that destroy the function of healthy body parts. I think that instead, we need to tell kids they don’t need to change themselves to be themselves,” she said.
Abel Garcia, 25, a male who medically transitioned when he was 19, called in with concerns as well.
“I am here speaking up against the school board on the push that they are doing right now towards children with the transgender ideology,” said Garcia. “I cannot expect a child — a high school, middle, or elementary [aged] child — to understand the full extent of the damage that will be done to their bodies, if an adult like myself wasn’t able to.”
“I had only about six months time between my initial referral and my actual surgery,” Cole said regarding her bilateral mastectomy. “Very quickly, I was given what I wanted, but it was far from what I needed. Two years later, I am still suffering from major complications.”
