Chloe Cole, a 19-year-old woman who was put through sex change procedures as a young teenager, detailed the horrifying side-effects of transgender procedures on Tuesday while testifying in support of a Tennessee bill called the “Detrans Bill of Rights.”

Cole was in Nashville on Tuesday to testify in support of the bill, which would make gender clinics that perform transgender procedures and take any state money to also perform “detransition” procedures. It would also mandate that insurance companies who cover the transgender procedures also pay for “detranisition” procedures. During her testimony, Cole detailed the life-altering side-effects she still faced after being put through transgender procedures as a child in California. 

“They took skin grafts from my areolas that now leak clear fluid and sometimes blood,” she said. “I have to wear bandages every single day to keep it from staining my shirt and bedding. Doctors look at me and they just shrug. The experiment is never ending.” 

“California, my home state, is not safe for me,” she added. “They make it clear every time I walk into the doctor’s office. All they know is gender-affirmation. But I’m tired of being told there’s no way out for me,” Cole said. “We need to be able to come to Tennessee and get real medical care, instead of the ideological driven pseudo-science in California.”

Cole was questioned by Democrat Rep. Bo Mitchell who claimed that children struggling with their gender needed to be put on cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers or that they would commit suicide. 

“I felt like Rep. Mitchell (@VoteBo) did his best to minimize and talk down to me regarding my medical trauma. I do believe his rhetoric around suicide is dangerous and misinformed, I believe that it perpetuates suicide and leads kids that view him amicably down a dark path,” she said. “I’m glad we can unify around the common good and I thank him for voting for the Detrans Bill of Rights.”

The bill, HB 2816, was proposed by Republican State Rep. Jeremy Faison, who is the majority caucus chairman. It advanced to the House Health Committee on Tuesday and is also working its way through the Senate. 

“I’m proud to carry this legislation that guarantees care to individuals suffering from mental health challenges who were groomed to undergo disfiguring surgeries or experimental interventions,” he told The Daily Wire. “True gender-affirming care is instilling self-worth in how our creator made us. This legislation recognizes the trauma endured by these individuals and helps provide a way back from the medical harm inflicted.”
