Although you mentioned a couple of boys in this article, one detransitioner interviewed by Graham Linehan made an observation that it may be harder for boys to find the support to detransition than it is for girls. For girls, all the radfems and GC fems are like “we got you” when they want to detransition, but the boys don’t have that so much. Also, my thoughts are that whilst both females and males can behave pretty badly when they do the trans thing, the girls may be forgiven more easily by women in general when they want to detrans. It’s possible that this isn’t a deliberately judgemental thing, but just a ‘comfort zone’ thing.
