“I changed my bone structure. I got hair extensions, changed wardrobes, started wearing makeup, and removed my hair. I did it because I thought it would make me happy. I felt happy at the time, but during a while, I felt like I was chasing happiness.” Being a woman is not mine.”
Immediately after the announcement, London came under intense scrutiny and backlash.
The white man was born, and London underwent 32 different procedures over eight years to look Korean.
“All my life I wasn’t happy with my appearance and I was bullied as a kid,” London told Fox News Digital. “In 2013, I was living in South Korea, and plastic surgery is ubiquitous there. I felt, ‘Maybe I can change myself and find happiness.'”
He explains that his desire to look Korean stems from living in South Korea and his love for the people and culture.
“Originally, I went to the doctor and picked a member of [Korean pop boy band] BTS, surgeries are going to go wrong, and so I’m going to do it again,” he says. And then when I decided to become a woman, I wanted to focus on Rosé From the Korean girl group BLACKPINK. She’s beautiful and has a cute face, and I felt like I could emulate that. I just find Koreans so beautiful; They are very good and beautiful people.”
London explains that while he felt he could be happier as a woman, he realized that wasn’t the case and was confused about his identity.
When making his personal announcement to his fans, London received an intense hatred, which he made clear he was used to. He also spoke out against what he calls the hypocrisy of his critics.
“I got used to them a lot,” London tells Fox News Digital. “Who are they to tell an individual that they can’t be what they want to be? They don’t live by my personal experience. I’ve been denigrated by the media and leftists. It’s a double standard. Last year, when I came out of my race, people attacked me. But after That I became trans, and people started celebrating me; they criticized me for wanting to look like a K-pop star, but praised me for being trans. It’s so hypocritical. When I became a woman, they suddenly liked me. It’s a world confusing.”
London shares that even as a transgender woman, he would not use women’s restrooms, out of his “respect” for women.
“I’m a true feminist,” he says. “Even when I lived as a transgender woman, I wouldn’t use the women’s restroom; I never wanted a woman to feel threatened. I would use the men’s room, too.”
He also criticized allowing transgender female athletes to play on women’s teams and leagues, such as swimmer Leah Thomas.
London has also examined the increase in the number of young children wanting to change sex, stressing that parents should allow their children to wait until they are adults to decide if the transition is right for them.
“I want to help parents, and tell their children to wait until they are adults,” he says. “I think people think it’s normal to change our gender. Especially for kids these days, there are school boards that push these ideas on kids, when they’re 5 years old, with a different gender. And I think it’s wrong. These are the kids and they have to make these decisions. As adults. I feel like kids change their gender without realizing what they’re doing, and then they become adults and they regret it. I’m in favor of gender change, but if you’re a kid and you’re taught things like you can easily be affected by whatever adults talk about.”
London recently shaved off his hair completely, which he considers the beginning of his journey to becoming a man. He’s also shed his makeup while lifting weights at the gym. He says the last six months of living as a woman have provided him with clarity of identity, and he is taking proactive steps, such as therapy, to continue his journey toward happiness.
“I’m still the same person on the inside, so now I’m focused on the positive, and I’m going to heal to be happier with who I am. I’m happier than ever.”
London also added that he donated his hair to charities in Iran that support women, in response to the deaths of Mahsa Amini and another repressed woman in the country.
“This is for the women of Iran. I stand with you all,” he wrote on his Instagram, alongside a picture of him with his new head. “I am auctioning my Korean hair to raise money to support women’s charities in Iran. All women deserve the same rights as men and deserve dignity, respect and freedom to make their own decisions. The Iranian regime has killed many women. Everyone should speak up and support the women of Iran.”
