RE-TRANSITION, DE-TRANSITION, GOING BACK, MOVING FORWARD...

NoGoingBack is a group for people of who spent time transitioning medically, socially, and/or physically to another gender ... or who were TG/TS identified for part of their lives ... And then chose to stop transitioning and/or stop ID'ing as transgender/transsexual.

This is NOT a group for people who think that transitioning is categorically wrong - it is for people who simply feel it is/was the wrong choice for them personally.

Some of us have returned to living in our birth-assigned gender, others continue to live cross-gender lives, and still others are genderqueer, 3rd gender, or otherwise gender-variant.

There is no term for people like us, though some of us speak of ourselves as de-transitioning, re-transitioning, ex-trans, going back, moving on, finding our true selves, accepting our gender difference. This group is for people who've are trying to create fulfilling lives for ourselves in our birth-assigned gender, in a 3rd gender or in-between space, or as a non-transitioning transperson.

Anti-transgender and anti-gay sentiment are NOT welcome. This means, among other things, no posts making generalised statements about transitioning or SRS being wrong - and no generalisations about the trans community. This is a TRANS-POSITIVE COMMUNITY.

We do welcome: Examining the various reasons and pressures that led us to transition or trans-identify. Finding ways to support our trans friends and loved ones while validating our own choices. Sharing ways to cope with living in gender-ambiguous bodies. Creating community to support gender variance. Ending isolation.

People considering stopping their transition or weighing whether or not to transition are welcome.
