YouTube content creator Blaire White, who often talks about her experiences as a trans woman, rose to prominence on social media with her controversies taking everything from political issues to gender identity. She has also been open about her transition over the years, including sex-proof surgeries such as facial feminization and hormone treatment.
In a new video on November 10, White talked about the next step in her journey with the usual and unwavering honesty. In 2018, the popular YouTuber told viewers that she was going off hormones for a while to preserve her DNA so she could have a baby with a surrogate. The 27-year-old campaigner unveiled her path to parenthood with her boyfriend, Joey Sarson, in her 2020 update.
White said going off hormones was a ‘horrible’ event
In a new YouTube video, “The Truth About Why I’m Not a Parent,” White reflected on her experience of going off hormones for a while to try to become a parent through a surrogate.
The social media influencer reminded her fans of her 2018 video, “I’m Detransitioning,” in which she explained that she intended to suspend treatment for the time being for her DNA to preserve. As she had gone through with her plan, White revealed that it had not gone as she had hoped.
Describing the experience as “horrible,” White said, “It was a huge responsibility to get off hormones. Her physical changes – such as thicker body hair, thinning hair, and oily skin – were “traumatic” and “terrifying” for her sexual dysphoria.
Even after all her efforts, unfortunately White was unable to preserve any of her DNA. According to her doctors, she had just been on hormones for too many years to make it possible.
“It was hard for me to go through that and still not get the results I wanted,” White admitted.
She advised viewers to think about possible fertility issues as early as possible
While White was now looking excited about the prospect of adoption, she admitted that she was disturbed by the fact that doctors did not warn her of infertility when she started hormone treatment. . She began her medical transfer when she was just 20 years old. At the time, she didn’t think much about having children. Now, she felt that parenting would be an essential part of her life.
“I personally don’t see my life with the satisfaction and value I want without having children at some point,” White said.
The villain ended his video by pleading for trans young people to consider conserving their DNA and planning for the future – even though they were still unsure if they wanted to being parents.
“Even if you strongly believe that you will never want children and that you will never want a family, it may be worth saving your DNA,” said White. “You don’t know where you’ll be 5, 10, 15 years down the line, and you don’t want to close your options.”
While White’s message was aimed specifically at other trans people, especially trans women, she believed that anyone going through fertility issues could relate to her story.
“This is not just about trans people,” White said. “I think anyone with fertility issues or anyone who wants to become a parent by any other means could get in touch. “She said infertility was much more common than many people knew – and they didn’t talk close enough.
