Chloe Cole is a detransitioner and describes herself as a "former trans kid" She was diagnosed with gender dysphoria at 9 years old and was treated by Kaiser Permanente in the San Francisco Bay Area between the ages of 13 and 17. She was a tomboy who thought of herself as a social misfit. She started thinking about transitioning after creating an Instagram account and being recommended lots of LGBTQ content: "Social media introduced this idea that I could be a boy." In eighth grade, Chloe was sexually assaulted and she began binding her breasts with chest binders. She was prescribed puberty blockers at age 13, and a month later, she was injected with large doses of opposite sex hormones (which permanently lowered her voice). Chloe had a double mastectomy at age 15, in June 2020.
