Diamond Dee makes me think a little of Walt Heyer. No their stories are not identical but neither was really transgender.
When you watch this video you won’t likely recognize yourself in it. Diamond had a sexual addiction problem so severe that he ended up having gender reassignment surgery without even actually suffering from any gender dysphoria whatsoever. I am hard pressed to even make the connection between the two.
Like Mr. Heyer, he was ushered through the system by people who clearly were not up to the task of determining whether this was a patient fit for such a procedure.
Diamond understands this and now wants to help others not make the same mistake.
The unfortunate thing in all this is that people hungry to discredit actual transgender people will pounce on this case along with Mr. Heyer’s and decry the insanity of it all.
However if anything Diamond’s case proves that there are all kinds of people in this world who will do all kinds of things without the proper reflection.
