“‘Coming out of my transition was like leaving the Twilight Zone, but the rest of society is still in it.’ After living nearly a decade of his life as a transgender woman named Brianna, Brian Wagoner ultimately came to realize his transition had been a mistake. ‘There’s a lot of money to be made by doctors here. They see the dollar signs, and in the end, money talks.’ Wagoner reached out to The Post after reading an article in June that profiled two young women who regretted transitioning to men in their teens. As a closeted teen, Wagoner began dabbling in drugs, and by the time he transferred from a junior college to the University of La Verne in California to study sociology at age 20, he said, he was regularly using marijuana, ecstasy, Adderall and cocaine that he got from friends and dealers at his school. Gay porn led him to transgender fetish content–which sparked a sudden feeling of gender dysphoria, also described as a discomfort within one’s body. ‘Before I discovered this bizarre subgenera of pornography, the idea of being a woman never crossed my mind. Never. It just came out of nowhere, really,’ he said. Desperate for a lifeline, in early 2012, he started searching for information about the transgender movement on YouTube and found a clinical social worker based in Los Angeles who made videos about trans people. He made an appointment to see her. During their first in-person session, he said, she immediately told him he could be transgender. After just a couple therapy sessions, the therapist gave Wagoner, then 22, a referral letter to see a doctor in Hollywood who wrote him a prescription for estrogen on his first visit. He was also rewarded socially for transitioning to a woman at college, where he remained a student until he was 25. ‘At my college, I was basically like a minor celebrity for being trans.’ After he started tuning out ‘woke political beliefs’ on social media and listening to contrarian media figures like Jordan Peterson and Joe Rogan, Wagoner said, he realized he no longer wanted to be Brianna. ‘Once I got off drugs and got a real job, I just had a clear head and started feeling a new gender dysphoria all over again,’ he said. ‘I was looking at myself in the mirror and looking at my childhood photos as a little boy and started thinking, What have I done?’”
“Trans Woman returns to life as man,” New York Post, July 11, 2022
CONCLUDING NOTE: This man’s story is very telling. America’s pop culture is a wicked, unhealthy thing, and this young man is a sad product of it. Not possessing the life-changing power that comes by a personal relationship with his Creator through faith in Jesus Christ, and lacking the wisdom that comes by God’s supernatural Word, he was a pawn in the hands of the demonic pop culture, its lies, and its fatal attractions: evolution, atheism, humanistic psychology, moral relativism, yogic mysticism, the glorification of sexual freedom, unisexuality, occultism, the drug culture, pornography. It’s a conspiracy, but not man’s, and it cannot be defeated with human weapons. It’s the devil’s mystery of iniquity. He laughs as his victims are enticed, trapped, defiled, corrupted, ruined, and sent to the depths of hell. I thank the blessed God for the saving gospel of Jesus Christ which is the power of God unto salvation for all sinners, even those who are in the depths of moral depravity.
