To the Editor: Re “Gender Dysphoric Kids Deserve Better Care,” by Pamela Paul (column, Feb. 4): I’m an L.G.B.T.Q.+ teenager.

Ms. Paul cites stories of detransitioners as if they are damning to the practice of gender-affirming care as a whole. Not all detransitioners regret their transition, and not all transgender people will medically transition.

An overwhelming 98 percent of people who started their transition care as youths continue into adulthood, per a 2022 study from the Netherlands published in The Lancet.

Speaking from experience, my peers and friends who have undergone medical transitions have never “regretted” it, and after beginning care, their quality of life greatly improved.
