Parents are stripped of their own children!
Yes, I am still on the Child Abuse kick. I am sick and tired of parents being stripped of their own flesh and blood for trying to simply discipline their children and bring them up right. I’ve written two articles recently about this and you and click on the links below to review them before reading this, if you want to:
- Lack of Child Discipline – Published 07/10/2023
- Child Discipline and the Government – Published 07/19/2023
This is the epitome of child abuse – and it’s legal!
In one of my articles, one of my readers commented …
“What,” I thought? A kid can have transgender surgery without a parent’s permission.
I just had to investigate:
My first question was … “What states provide the most lenient laws for minors wanting transgender surgery?”
Here’s what I found:
The states that provide the most lenient laws for minors wanting transgender surgery are:
- New York
These states have all passed laws that allow minors to consent to gender-affirming surgery without parental consent, or with parental consent that is not required. In addition, these states have all passed laws that protect transgender minors from discrimination and harassment.
It is important to note that the laws regarding transgender surgery vary from state to state. It is always best to consult with a healthcare provider or attorney to get specific advice about the laws that apply in your situation.
Here is a more detailed breakdown of the laws in each state:
- California: California law allows minors to consent to gender-affirming surgery without parental consent if they are deemed to be mature enough to understand the risks and benefits of surgery. Additionally, if a minor is in immediate danger of harm, such as if they are experiencing gender dysphoria that is severe enough to lead to suicide, they may be able to consent to surgery even if they are not considered to be mature enough.
- Oregon: Oregon law allows minors to consent to gender-affirming surgery with parental consent that is not required. This means that parents can still consent to surgery for their minor child, but they do not have to.
- Vermont: Vermont law allows minors to consent to gender-affirming surgery with parental consent that is not required. Additionally, Vermont law prohibits discrimination against transgender people in all areas of public life, including healthcare.
- New York: New York law allows minors to consent to gender-affirming surgery with parental consent that is not required. Additionally, New York law prohibits discrimination against transgender people in employment, housing, and public accommodations.
- Washington: Washington law allows minors to consent to gender-affirming surgery with parental consent that is not required. Additionally, Washington law protects transgender minors from estranged parents. This means that shelters and host homes can not notify parents if a minor comes into their care if the minor is seeking gender-affirming care.
Are you kidding me? The child can consent without parental approval if it is deemed the child/minor is mature enough? Since when is a kid mature enough to make a life-long decision about the abuse of their own body. Folks, this is not a piercing or a tattoo. Gender affirming surgery can be life threatening to some.
Heck, there are many college-aged “young adults” that still don’t know what they want to be when they grow up and you’re telling me that a teenager can be mature enough to know if they want to be a man or a woman.
It’s really pretty simple and it’s scientific. A person (in most cases) is born either a male or a female.
There is a term known as “intersex” that effects some people being brought into this world.
A person of intersex is a person whose sex characteristics do not fit the typical definitions of male or female. This can include people with chromosomes that are not XX or XY, genitals that are not clearly male or female, or a combination of both male and female reproductive organs.
Intersex is a natural variation of human sex, and it is estimated that about 1 in 2,000 people are born intersex. However, many intersex people are not diagnosed at birth, and some may not even know that they are intersex until they reach puberty or adulthood.
There are many different types of intersex conditions, and the way that intersex people experience their gender identity can vary widely. Some intersex people identify as male, female, or non-binary, and some may not identify with any gender at all.
It is important to remember that intersex is not a disease or a disorder. It is simply a natural variation of human sex. Intersex people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, and they should have the same rights and opportunities as anyone else.
Here are some terms that are often used to describe people of intersex:
Intersex: This is the umbrella term that is used to describe people whose sex characteristics do not fit the typical definitions of male or female.
Hermaphrodite: This term is no longer considered to be accurate or respectful, and it should not be used to describe people of intersex.
DSD: This stands for Disorder of Sex Development, and it is the medical term that is sometimes used to describe people of intersex. However, many intersex people and advocates object to the use of this term, as it suggests that intersex is a disorder or a disease.
Gender variant: This term is used to describe people whose gender identity or expression does not fit the traditional expectations of their assigned sex at birth.
Non-binary: This term is used to describe people whose gender identity is not exclusively male or female.
It is important to use the terms that people of intersex prefer to describe themselves. If you are unsure which terms to use, it is always best to ask.
Now I do feel somewhat empathetic for these people. They did not ask to be born this way … but the bottom line is that 99.95% of the people being born today are either Male or Female and there should be no decision that has to be made about their sex … especially by a minor.
Specifically, what is the law in the state of Washington?
When I got this readers comments I wanted to know the specifics about the Washington State Laws about minors and gender affirming surgery.
Here’s what I found:
The laws regarding children and transgender surgery in Washington are as follows:
Underage people cannot legally consent to gender-affirming surgery. This means that any surgery that alters the physical sex characteristics of a person, such as top surgery or bottom surgery, would require the consent of the minor’s parent or legal guardian.
However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, if a minor is deemed to be mature enough to understand the risks and benefits of surgery, they may be able to consent to it without parental consent. Additionally, if a minor is in immediate danger of harm, such as if they are experiencing gender dysphoria that is severe enough to lead to suicide, they may be able to consent to surgery even if they are not considered to be mature enough.
If this is the case than why even say … “Underage people cannot legally consent to gender-affirming surgery?”
In 2023, Washington passed a law that protects transgender minors from estranged parents. This law allows shelters and host homes to not notify parents if a minor comes into their care if the minor is seeking gender-affirming care. This law was designed to protect transgender minors who have been kicked out of their homes by their parents for seeking gender-affirming care.
It is important to note that these are just the general laws regarding transgender surgery in Washington. There may be specific exceptions or requirements that apply in certain cases. It is always best to consult with a healthcare provider or attorney to get specific advice about the laws that apply to your situation, especially if you live in the state of Washington and have a child that is considering such surgery.
In my opinion …
Having a child make a decision about changing their sex from what they were born with to the opposite … is nothing short of “Child Abuse.” This is child abuse that is making its way across the United States and the World and it must be stopped. It is happening because the “Liberal Left” wants it to happen and those that disagree with it remain silent. The “Silent Majority” is letting the “Liberal Left” ruin our country and our world … again in my opinion.
So, what is Gender Dysphoria?
It is a term used to describe the distress or discomfort that a person may feel when their gender identity does not match the sex they were assigned at birth. This can include people who identify as transgender, genderqueer, or non-binary.
Gender dysphoria can manifest in a variety of ways, including:
- Feeling a strong disconnect between your gender identity and your body.
- Feeling uncomfortable with your sex assigned at birth.
- Desiring to live as a different gender.
- Feeling depressed, anxious, or suicidal.
People will tell you that gender dysphoria is not a mental illness, but it can be a source of significant distress. There are a number of treatments available for gender dysphoria, including hormone therapy, surgery, and therapy.
Again, in my opinion, gender dysphoria is just as much a mental illness as anything else they call a mental illness such as depression, bi-polar disease, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or schizophrenia.
If people can seek psychological help for these conditions, they should also be able to seek psychological for gender dysphoria. This is what most of these young kids need before any sex change surgery.
The bottom line is this …
Regardless of who it offends, if a grown man wants to become a woman or a grown woman wants to become a man and both go through the terrors of sex change surgery, that is their prerogative. I don’t have to agree with it, but I am certainly not going to try to stop it either.
However, we must stop preaching this CRAP to our children and let them grow up to make up their own minds. If you believe they have Gender Dysphoria and may become suicidal, by all means, get them the psychological help they need … but not surgery at a young age. In my opinion, for a parent to agree to that before the child has reached the age of majority is nothing short of child abuse. And, for state and federal government to allow a minor to make such a decision then the state and the federal government are also contributing to child abuse.
That’s my take … I’d like to know yours (agree or disagree) I won’t get upset or angry.
