A biological male is applying for a state-sponsored euthanasia program in Canada after complications from a vaginoplasty left him with a lack of trust in the country’s medical system, he wrote on Twitter in January.
Canada’s Medical Assistance In Dying (MAID) program reported 10,064 deaths in 2021, accounting for 3.3% of deaths in the country. Canada recently postponed the expansion of its criteria for MAID until March 2024, at which point people whose sole symptom is mental illness will be able to access a medical professional who can assist in their death. The government cited a need to give provinces in Canada more time to gather necessary resources for MAID assessors before implementing the expanded criteria.
“I’m accessing M.A.I.D as a sterilized first nations person of treaty 6, who is also a post-op transsexual woman of 14 years,” Duchess Lois wrote Tuesday in a Twitter thread. “I qualify for it as someone who is sterilized and who has undergone vaginoplasty. Two things that cannot be reversed or relieved.” (RELATED: America ‘Most Permissive Country’ For Sex Change Surgeries, Study Shows)
Lois said he experienced “depth loss” and dilations twice a week after his vaginoplasty, but allegedly could not receive a specialist referral until December 2021, when he finally received a referral for a doctor at the Lois Hole Hospital for Women in Edmonton, where he said he was “relabelled from homosexual to asexual by that doctor” via a “phone consultation.”
It was brushed off!
I was so confused as to why I didn’t have a penis anymore!!
That was the tipping point for me. It’s what changed my life and mind that I can no longer trust this medical system that is captured by gender identity ideologies.
It has killed the Indian.

After a “confusional migraine that lasted 22 days,” Lois said he became “so confused as to why I didn’t have a penis anymore.”
“That was the tipping point for me. It’s what changed my life and mind that I can no longer trust this medical system that is captured by gender identity ideologies,” he continued in the Twitter thread.
“So yes, I qualify as a sterilized ‘indian’ who has had vaginoplasty,” Lois concluded.
Lois told the Daily Caller he did not feel “pressured” to apply for MAID.
“I don’t think they really care tbh [to be honest],” he alleged. “Or I would have had received proper healthcare in the first place.”
A recent study from the Women’s College Hospital in Toronto found more than half of patients between the ages of 19 and 73 who have undergone vaginoplasties at Canadian surgical centers present themselves for postoperative care, exhibiting symptoms such as vaginal bleeding or sexual function concerns. Reported side effects of the surgery include hypergranulation, urinary dysfunction and wound healing issues, according to the study.
