A little over a week ago, the Supreme Court of British Columbia ordered testosterone injections for a 14-year-old girl who now considers herself to be a transgender boy, against her parents’ wishes. Even more frightening, her parents face legal penalties if they use the wrong pro-noun or dare to call her by her birth name.
John Stonestreet of Breakpoint rightly pointed out that “Just as same-sex marriage proved to be a grave threat to religious freedom, transgender ideology is proving to be a grave threat to parental rights.”
The stories that parents who are losing their parental rights in court simply because they do not subscribe to the pseudo-science behind transgenderism should send a shiver up the spine of every parent.
Recently, five mothers shared their stories for The Public Discourse. When their daughters and sons announced they were transgender, the heartbreak for their parents was only just beginning. Even though children usually make these announcements after intense indoctrination via the internet, schools and trans-activists, the concerns of parents are ignored. Instead, they are often vilified and threatened with legal action.
The result for families is heartbreaking. Children are suffering through surgeries which remove perfectly normal, healthy sex organs while parents suffer an equally agonizing situation—being sidelined and cut out of these life-altering decisions.
Twenty years from now, when these kids are more unhappy than ever, twenty years from now, when these kids cannot have children of their own—where will all these trans-activists be? They’ll be long gone, like the dreams of healthy outcomes for thousands of children who have become prey to a dangerous and scientifically flawed ideology.
Parents, beware. Protect your kids from this madness. If you don’t, who will?
