Ex-Navy SEAL de-transitions, warns: ‘We’re hurting our kids. Kids are DYING’

On “The News & Why It Matters,” BlazeTV host Sara Gonzales, along with BlazeTV contributor John Doyle and chief researcher Jason Buttrill, talked about retired Navy SEAL Chris Beck’s de-transition, after famously coming out as transgender 10 years ago in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, and his warning about how the transgender movement is hurting children.

“We’re hurting our kids. Kids are dying, and I don’t want that to happen. And it’s killing me because I helped do that,” Beck said in a recent interview with Robby Starbuck.

Beck accused CNN and others of using him to encourage people to transition and warned that so-called gender-affirming care is hurting children. He also said he was “taken advantage of” by “people who had knowledge way beyond me. They knew what they were doing. I didn’t.”

“Part of my image is hurting these kids, and I want to make sure the whole world knows everything you see on CNN with my face, do not even believe a word of it. Everything that happened to me for the last 10 years, it’s just it’s horrible. It destroyed my life. I destroyed my life. I’m not a victim. I did this to myself, but I had help,” he added. “I take full responsibility. I went on CNN and everything else, and that’s why I’m here right now, I’m trying to correct that.”

u201cNavy 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. Watch here:
