He told Starbuck that he is “not transgender” and used his confusion as an example of why psychologists should not “push their agenda” onto children. Beck claimed in the interview that it took a one hour long meeting at the Department of Veterans Affairs for him to be recommended hormones, which he has now been off for seven years. He went on to break down the effects of the hormones used for the gender transition on his body.

Beck was turned into a national figure when he came out as transgender in a 2013 CNN interview with Anderson Cooper. The interview came after he co-wrote the book “Warrior Princess” with psychologist Anne Speckhard. The book detailed him coming out as transgender. He warned viewers in the interview not to believe anything CNN said about him because he claims they “used [him]” and “destroyed [his] life” over the past decade.
He also accused Speckhard of manipulating him into becoming transgender and writing the book. In the interview, Beck claimed that she “lovebombed” him in the beginning and allegedly expressed her excitement about the book turning her into a millionaire. Beck later recalled how he tried to stop the book from being published because of doubts he was having. He says he remembered not knowing the book was published until he received a phone call from a friend. The next day, he says he was swarmed by media outlets, including CNN.
Beck talked about being “propagandized” and “used badly by a lot of people” because he was naive. He went on to cite gender ideology as one of the reasons why people are becoming transgender, adding that confused children are being “talked into this” and will not listen to people like himself.
Beck served in the Navy SEALs for 20 years on special operations teams, including the famed SEAL Team Six. Over the course of 13 deployments, he received over 50 awards and medals for his service, including the Bronze Star with valor and the Purple Heart, according to his speaker bio.
