Former trans Navy SEAL says he was 'used badly' by trans 'cult'
( Post Millennial )
Former Navy SEAL Chris Beck said in a recent interview with Robby Starbuck that he is detransitioning from being a transgender woman back to a man after realizing that he was a victim of "propaganda" and "used badly by a lot of people."
Beck, who formerly went by the name Kristen Beck, said that the media used him to promote transgenderism. Beck also warned about the dangers of trans ideology, the Daily Caller reports.
"What I see as conversion right now is the fact that you had a psychologist, you had CNN, you had everybody else," Beck explained. "You have the entire media. Everyone is converting all these kids into transgender."
Beck said that he served 20 years on a special operations team. He was told by a psychologist that he was transgender after one session. The psychologist, Anne Speckhard, then took "advantage" of Beck, he says, and co-authored a book with him.
"I got taken advantage of," Beck stated. "I got propagandized. I got used badly by a lot of people who had knowledge way beyond me that they knew what they were doing."
Beck and Speckhard's book "Warrior Princess," was a financial success, despite reservations by Beck on whether the book should have been published at all. He says that the book was released without his permission.
Beck said that Speckhard convinced him to write the book that would thrust him into the limelight. After the book's release, Beck was featured on a segment with Anderson Cooper of CNN. He says that the network "used" him and "destroyed" his life.
He called transgenderism a cult and said that any criticism of the ideology leads to harsh attacks.
"If they think that their narrative is so sacred that you can't even speak out against it, as soon as you say something, you're out," said Beck. "You're excommunicated. You are a Nazi. They ramp it up so fast."
Beck also discussed the dangers of "automatic acceptance" of children who claim to be transgender. He said that a doctor should require a "minimum number of sessions" before recommending a life-altering surgery or hormone therapy to kids.
"There's a lot of complications with these surgeries," Beck said. "And that's a part that they don't really talk about... I don't want this to continue, and I don't want these kids to get hurt."
