(FAITHWIRE) – At just 15 years old, Chloe Cole underwent a surgery that radically changed her life: She had a double mastectomy after taking puberty blockers, believing she was a transgender male born in the wrong body.
Forbes initially published an article critical of the now-18-year-old Cole, who has spoken out about the dangers of body-altering surgeries for children and teenagers. The outlet has since removed the story, written by transgender writer Dawn Ennis, from its website.
Ennis, a male who identifies as female, originally wrote the piece for the Los Angeles Blade, a pro-LGBT website. It was republished to Forbes on Sunday and immediately drew criticism for content many readers believed to be factually inaccurate.
