The Stream had an fascinating report written by a motherwho explained what occurred when she went to professionals for support for her a daughter. Her daughter wanted everybody about her to treat her as if she had been a boy. The professionals didn’t substantially care what the mother had to say, they just assumed that the youngster was the authority, and the parents had been anticipated to toe the lie… or else.

She writes:

If you take your youngster to a clinic to seek support, affirmative care implies the therapist will have to comply with the child’s lead. The experts will have to accept a child’s professed gender identity. In truth, this is the law in several states.

Beneath “conversion therapy” bans, questioning a child’s professed gender identity is now illegal.

[…]Parents are encouraged to refer to him as their “daughter” and let him pick out a feminine name. Teachers are told to let him use the girls’ bathroom at college. Therapists will reassure parents that social transition is harmless and reversible.

[…]The “experts” inform parents that it is dangerous to query their children’s beliefs, that they will have to help their children’s healthcare transition, which contains a lifetime dependence on hormones, and that if parents do not comply, their kids will be at greater threat of suicide.

The healthcare personnel prescribed hormone altering drugs to the youngster:

When the teenage years commence, affirmative care implies providing young folks cross-sex hormones. Girls as young as 12 are prescribed testosterone for lifetime usage, when boys are provided estrogen.

These are significant hormonal treatment options that influence brain improvement, cardiovascular well being, and may possibly improve the threat of cancer.

And it is not just drugs, it is surgery, also:

For girls, a single regular process is named “gender-affirming prime surgery,” also recognized as a double mastectomy. They are performed on girls as young as 13 years old — otherwise healthful girls who think they are transgender.

[…]There are also teenage girls undergoing radical hysterectomies in the name of gender identity.

Now, the very first point that occurred to me when reading this story was: what occurs if the parents do not want to go along with this? And also, how did these pro-transgender non-parent actors even locate out about it?


In Canada, transgender kids can strategy teachers in the government-run public schools, and healthcare personnel in the government-run well being care technique. And then these government workers can take the parents to the government-run courts to get the will of the secular left state imposed on the parents.

The Federalist first reported on the story in the final week of February:

Clark* very first located out that his 12-year-old daughter Maxine was getting treated as a boy by her college when he saw her new name in her class’s grade seven yearbook. “Quinn” was the new name her counselor had helped her choose out, and Maxine’s college district in Delta, British Columbia, Canada, had decided that “Quinn” really should be treated, for all intents and purposes, as a boy.

According to education policy, parents have no proper to know their child’s “preferred sex, gender, or name” at college.


Maxine’s counselors at college … referred Maxine and her mother, Sarah, to a “Dr.” Wallace Wong — a psychologist and LGBT activist who predictably decided that Maxine really should be referred to a children’s hospital for testosterone injections when she was only 13. Not to be outdone, the children’s hospital asked Maxine’s parents for permission to commence injecting Maxine with testosterone on her pretty very first check out. Clark mentioned no and refused to sign.

From the middle of August till October, the hospital worked Clark more than, attempting to get his consent. When he ultimately refused, the hospital dropped a bombshell threat: merely place, they declared that they didn’t need to have Clark’s or Sarah’s permission for that matter.

The Federalist later reported that the courts had sided with the government-run college and the government-run well being care personnel against the parents.


You may well wonder what occurs in America, if parents pick out to fight the professionals on the secular left.

Here’s a current instance reported at the Day-to-day Wire:

On Friday, Ohio parents had been denied custody of their daughter for not getting supportive sufficient of her alleged transgenderism.

The 17-year-old biologically female youngster identifies as a boy and claims she has suicidal thoughts more than her parents’ lack of help for her transgenderism (they will not, for instance, contact her by her new selected male name). The parents had been fighting for custody of their daughter back from the state in an work to cease prospective transgender hormone remedy.

The Hamilton County Judge, Sylvia Sieve Hendon, took the youngster away from the parents, so that the youngster could get transgender hormon replacement therapy.

I believed this component was pretty fascinating:

The parents’ Christian faith was used against them in the case by Donald Clancy of the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Workplace.

I looked at exactly where Hamilton County is, considering that it would be in a liberal city like Toledo or Cleveland, or even Columbus. But it is essentially a suburb of Cincinnati, close to Indiana. I assume that the judge, like all government workers, is paid out of the dollars taken from peope like the parents in taxes. They’re paying this judge to do this to them.

Be cautious how you vote

In situations like this, I usually like to remind Christians to bear in mind how they vote. Several Christians feel that a major secular government really should be empowered to hand out welfare, cease worldwide warming, present free of charge sex adjustments, free of charge abortions and free of charge contraceptives, and so forth. But they do not recognize that a major secular government does not care about religious liberty, parental autonomy, or conscience rights. They care about redistributing taxpayer dollars to purchase the votes of folks who rely on government.

When the secular leftists manage so substantially of society (the schools, the hospitals, regulations on business enterprise, and even regulating free of charge speech!), it is tougher and tougher to be a Christian with integrity. At some point, you are going to conflict with the secular left, due to the fact they’re just everywhere. That is why Christians really should in no way vote for larger government. It increases the location of conflict, when simultaneously draining away the dollars we would need to have to defend outselves. Due to the fact larger government needs greater taxes, and that implies significantly less of what you earn can be utilised to fight back against the secular leftists.
