Skip to comments.Detransitioner: ‘I’m suing the doctors who removed my healthy breasts’

“Sometimes in the shower, I realize they’re gone. I just have these scars.”
Camille Kiefel, 32, had her healthy breasts removed in 2020 to align with her nonbinary gender identity. She says her doctors approved the surgery after two Zoom meetings, breezing past a whole host of mental health issues.
Now that Camille is in a better place mentally, she realizes her surgery was a mistake. So, two and a half years later, she’s suing her social worker, therapist, and the gender clinics they work for — Brave Space Oregon and Quest Center for Integrative Health — seeking up to $850,000 in damages.
As a child, Camille never gave her gender identity a thought. But when her best friend was raped by a relative in sixth grade, she said she became acutely aware of her femininity. Around that time her father also imparted well-meaning advice that backfired.
“My dad told me about how men talked about girls, because he wanted to protect me and to get me to dress more conservatively,” she told The Post. “But it made my anxiety worse. All that really screwed me up. I remember I was even afraid to be alone.”
From that point on, she began dressing more androgynously. “I didn’t want to highlight my curves. I had a lot of discomfort around my breasts and hips.”
But the idea that she might not actually be a woman didn’t occur to Camille until she enrolled at Portland State University, where she minored in gender studies and was introduced to alternative views about sex and gender.
By the time she reached her mid-20s, she embraced a nonbinary label and used she/they pronouns. All the while, she was struggling with a slew of mental-health issues, including anxiety disorder, social anxiety, PTSD, major depressive disorder and ADHD.

Good luck with that. I think the case would be stronger suing her parents.
Buyer’s remorse. She will lose.
This is why trans-kids have maybe 2-3 more years until you never see them again - lawsuits. This woman will probably lose her lawsuit, but when kids that were operated on or given hormones under the age of 18 begin suing as adults, there’s not a judge out there that wouldn’t grant punitive damages.
Multiply that by all the former trans kids hunted down by liability lawyers and doctors and therapists will simply stop providing services to non-adults.
“until she enrolled at Portland State University, where she minored in gender studies”
“”Portland State University, where she minored in gender studies””
A real serious student there! She deserves to have her student loans forgiven!
When does the crazy stop?
We need to bring back mental hospitals.
Just don’t hire Nurse Ratched.
OTOH, all of the gender nonsense happening to children (mental, chemical, physical) needs to punished and punished HARD!
> All the while, she was struggling with a slew of mental-health issues, including anxiety disorder, social anxiety, PTSD, major depressive disorder and ADHD.
Bingo! The common thread linking every “female-presenting non-binary person” I’ve ever met. They need GOOD mental health care, not a chopmytitsoffame.
She had the surgery in 2020 and she is 32?
She was all grown up.
While I decry the ethics of these surgeries in general, she knew what she was doing. Suing the folks who gave her what she asked for is not going to go well, imho.
We could use more Red Foremans as fathers...
“ I think the case would be stronger suing her parents.”
The doc who sawed off her breasts ought to have some liability.
Almost all lawyers are extremely far left, so don't expect that to be a very big bandwagon. Those that do will be attacked by the Department of Justice, the FBI, all of the media, etc. They will most certainly risk disbarment.
Besides, the Rats will most likely shield the tranny industry the way they shielded Clot Shot manufacturers.
What a sad story. You can’t help but sympathize with this poor, confused kid and be very angry at the whole crooked, insane, liberal establishment that urged her to destroy her very femininity.
“...she minored in gender studies...”
If the school is completely honest, this would be the easiest course in the world...
End of course...
In a sane America...
“ She had the surgery in 2020 and she is 32?

Yes, but that shouldn’t let the doctor off the hook. Just because a nutcase asks him to mutilate her, doesn’t give him immunity for complying. What if she’d asked him to saw off both of her legs and drill a hole in her skull?
