The first man in the United States to be legally recognized as “nonbinary” now says it was a “sham,” and notes that mainstream media and LGBT organizations treat him as though he does not exist.
In a Monday article in the Daily Signal, Jamie Shupe, a man who recently desisted back to his biological sex, explained that four years ago he wrote about his decision to live “authentically” as the woman he said he always had been in The New York Times. Three years ago, he asserted he was nonbinary — neither male nor female — and was allowed to identify as such by the state of Oregon. He was the first person in the United States where a “third” sex was formally designated on his legal documents.
“Now, I want to live again as the man that I am,” Shupe wrote Monday, elaborating that while he took hormones and participated in “medical transgenderism” for several years, he never had surgery to remove his genitals and today considers himself lucky.
“But that’s not to say I got off scot-free. My psyche is eternally scarred, and I’ve got a host of health issues from the grand medical experiment,” he said.
