Seth Connell writes that transgenderism itself is a movement that glorifies mental illness in pursuit of more State control over our lives. But transgenderism for children is inherently abominable and nothing short of child-abuse.
What is the latest example of children being abused by leftist idiots?
Well, in Texas, a seven year old (yes, a seven year old) was brought to the Texas Legislature to testify against a bill that would require each person to use the restroom according to the gender marked on their birth certificate, not whatever gender with which they “identify.”
Texas is the latest state taking up the fight to protect women and children from predators (and yes, predators are using this movement to their advantage).
These irresponsible and criminal parents are capitulating to their child’s gender dysphoria and causing irreparable harm (all because equality, don’t you know).
CNN reports that Libby Gonzalez was brought before the legislature to discuss how the bathroom bill would harm “her” because of “her” status as a transgender individual.
“She” reportedly “became a girl” at three years old. It was at that time that her parents, Frank and Rachel, “realized” that their then-son was not living the life that he was supposed to be living.
Long before that moment, the Gonzales’ say they saw the “early signs” their child was not her “authentic self.” There were times when they thought maybe their child was gay. It wasn’t until around the age of 4 or 5 when their child began to verbalize more to them who she really was, that they accepted it too. Their child was transgender.
In the months and weeks that followed, Libby began to transition. She asked to grow out her hair, she gravitated to more stereotypically girl toys, and said she felt more comfortable wearing girl clothing.
Rather than protecting their child from a dangerous and damaging mental condition, these “parents” are capitulating to their child’s self-harm; and they are damn proud of it.
And perhaps even worse than that, these so-called “parents” are forcing their child into the spotlight, and forcing him to be “the new face” of transgenderism.
Today, there is only one staunch defender of children from this kind of horrific abuse, and that is the American College of Pediatricians.
These harms constitute nothing less than institutionalized child abuse. Sound ethics demand an immediate end to the use of pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies.
It is time for our nation’s leaders and the silent majority of health professionals to learn exactly what is happening to our children, and unite to take action.
There are extremely few situations where I believe that any other entity has a prerogative to override parental authority, but when parents are abusing their child and causing irreparable sexual and identity damage in a way like this, such parents should be put into prison.
