Scott Newgent Biological Woman Detransitioner speaks out
Oct 22, 2022
Scott Newgent spoke At Matt Walsh’s ‘Rally To End Child Mutilation’ Newgent appeared in Nashville outside the Tennessee State Capitol with Walsh, former Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, detransitioner Chloe Cole, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and others raising awareness about the dangers of transgender treatment for minors. From an interview with Newgent: “I am forty-eight-year-old transgender man who transitioned at age forty-two, and I am a parent to three teenagers. Before my transition, I was known to the world as Kellie King, a dynamic, powerful business sales executive, consistently leading the sales charts while acquiring countless honors, awards, and accolades.
At age 42, I made a decision that turned my world upside down. Everything that was once gold turned to coal, almost instantly. That decision was to transition from a lesbian to a transman, to become Scott Newgent. I endured medical complication after medical complication due to transgender healthcare. I lost everything I’d ever worked for: home, car, savings, career, wife, medical insurance, and most importantly my faith in myself and God. In a battle to survive, I went from ER to ER, trying to solve a mystery of why my health was failing. I learned firsthand the truth about how dangerous and perilous medical transition really is.
I learned the hard way that if you get sick because of transgender health, you will witness physicians throwing their hands up and saying one of two things: 1) “transgender health is experimental, and I don’t know what’s wrong” or 2) “you need to go back to the physicians who hurt you in the first place.” My medical complications have included seven surgeries, a pulmonary embolism, an induced stress heart attack, sepsis, a 17-month recurring infection, 16 rounds of antibiotics, three weeks of daily IV antibiotics, arm reconstructive surgery, lung, heart and bladder damage, insomnia, hallucinations, PTSD, $1 million in medical expenses, and loss of home, car, career and marriage.
All this, and yet I cannot sue the surgeon responsible—in part because there is no structured, tested or widely accepted baseline for transgender health care. Every time I closed my eyes to give up, my children’s faces appeared within my mind, a reminder that they were worth any amount of pain. Every time it became too much, I said silently and consistently, “Not today, not tomorrow, give me all you got, but I am not leaving my children.”
