David Reimer’s Life
David Reimer was a healthy young baby boy when his life was changed forever by a botched circumcision. The doctor mutilated his genitals, and decided to change him into a girl in order to cover up his mistake. He even cited it as an experiment on gender concepts to get his parents to agree to it.
David became “Brenda,” and lived most of his life with serious gender dysphoria. The young Canadian ended up committing suicide as a result of the issues his forced gender assignment caused on him in 2004.
