This seems to be a thing. I wrote about it a bit here but very interested to hear other women's experiences, observations, and analysis of what's going on here.

But OP's article features two women, one who was 27 and the 41 at the time they went tranz. Moreover, she said she's observed this phenomenon in

Heterosexually-partnered woman between the ages 35-40ish

Almost always white

Self-identified progressive but basically a normie until Trump got elected in 2016 or until May 2020 if a little slow on the uptake

The 35-40 age bracket seems a bit young in my view for "progressive" white women to be going through empty-nest syndrome. Lots of white women in that demographic don't have children until they're in their 30s.

Also, are we even sure all the white heterosexual women doing this have children? It's not clear to me from the links to reddit threads that OP gives in her article.
