As States Ban Parents From Resisting Their Kids Going Transgender, Will Congress Step Up?

Congress must pass legislation to stop state governments from trampling parents’ rights to protect their kids from radical sex theory.

BY: VIRGINIA FOXX
JANUARY 02, 2023

Attacks on parents are getting closer to home. From a woke education establishment to increasingly activist child protection agencies, parents are losing the right to decide how to raise their children. My new legislation, the Parental Right to Protect Act, will ensure parents aren’t expelled from their child’s life because they disagree with the left’s radical ideas on sex.

More medical facilities are offering life-altering, non-reversible medical interventions for adolescents who believe they were born the wrong sex. Many parents are against these experimental surgeries and hormonal interventions because they know these treatments will cause irreparable physical and emotional harm to their children.

Take Chloe Cole, for example, who at age 13 began taking puberty blockers. At age 15, she had a double mastectomy. And at age 16, she made the decision to stop these interventions and instead affirm her sex. Earlier this year, Chloe launched an organization alongside others who regret having received so-called “gender-affirming care.” This organization now works to warn others about the harms caused by such medical interventions.

It’s no wonder countries such as the United Kingdom and Sweden have recently suspended their use of this experimental approach on children, recognizing its inherent risks. Too bad the Biden administration isn’t following suit.

In fact, the Biden administration and congressional Democrats are hell-bent on pushing a radical agenda in schools and in the home that is often squarely opposed to parents. Just this week, NBC news reported that the “Education Department has opened what appears to be the first-of-its-kind investigation into Granbury Independent School District after it pulled library books dealing with sexuality and gender.”

Parents Shut Out
Schools across the country are pushing children’s books and curricula in the classroom to normalize transgender ideology. When parents ask for access to school curricula many are stonewalled. One Rhode Island mom was billed $74,000 after filing a Freedom of Information Act request to gain access to her daughter’s school curriculum.

School boards nationwide have used various tactics for silencing parents, such as barring or restricting parents from participating in public meetings. One school board in Pennsylvania is now being sued for a pattern of trampling the First Amendment rights of parents, which includes cutting parents off in the middle of a sentence, yelling over them during their allocated time to speak, and deleting the remarks of parents it disagrees with from the official record and video recording.

Parents who do not support transgender medical interventions are sometimes kept in the dark by the education bureaucracy. An Ohio school district told teachers they did not have to inform parents if a student began transitioning at school, and one Florida school district kept “gender transition” counseling of a 12-year-old girl secret from her parents until she attempted suicide — twice.

Congress will fix it by passing a law to make Transitioning mandatory, and declare parents who object "Terrorists."
For unvaccinated, we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death — if you’re unvaccinated — for themselves, their families, and the hospitals they’ll soon overwhelm. Sloe Joe Biteme 12/16

We Lost Our Daughter to a Cult
2 hr ago
Parents with Inconvenient Truths about Trans
Quote
Our case is typical. An intelligent, young adult daughter, possibly on the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum, involved in social justice issues, suddenly professes a new supernatural belief. We, the parents, scramble to understand, but simply don't accept this new faith as "true." A few months of wary communication follow, then all contact is cut-off.

What the hell just happened?

We lost our daughter to a cult. ...

At first we sought to use facts and figures to convince her. In hindsight, we now realize how foolish this was—when one converts to a new religion, the convert won't engage in an honest debate. We tried to keep open minds. But one bright line we immediately drew—we would never support self-mutilation, which seemed to be a key aspect to this new cult. And that is where she chose the cult over her family.

By now it should be clear we are talking about the transgender cult. And we keep saying "cult"—but is this really a cult? Here are some definitions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult#Destructive_cults, "a highly manipulative group which exploits and sometimes physically and/or psychologically damages members and recruits." Also, people in cults show "behavioral and personality changes, loss of personal identity, cessation of scholastic activities, estrangement from family, disinterest in society and pronounced mental control and enslavement by cult leaders."

The situation checks all the boxes but one—there are no cult leaders. So this can't be a cult, right? Unlike, say, fundamentalist groups, this campus group didn't have a clear central authority figure. Isn't that the hallmark of a cult? ...

Congress needs to step up and quash this idiocy from the CDC:
Quote
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) just released an LGBTQIA2S+ guidance publication for elementary, middle, and high school faculty and administrators. This catechismal treatise, The LGBTQ Inclusivity in Schools: A Self Assessment Tool, states its purpose to be: A focused, reasonable, and user-friendly approach to identify potential strategies to increase LGBTQ inclusivity in schools

If that sounds reasonable to you, scroll a few more pages in the publication and you will find lists of wholly unreasoned multiple-choice questions posed to educators by the CDC.  For example: During sexual health education lessons, I describe anatomy and physiology separate from gender (e.g., “a body with a penis,” “a body with a vagina”)

The answer they are looking for? A) This statement applies to me a great deal

Scroll a bit more to find another reasonable brainteaser for an elementary school teacher:  I present information on all types of sex, not centering only on penis/vagina penetrative sex

According to their scoring system, be sure to select answer A) again, otherwise be flagged as insufficiently inclusive.   ...

How does this advance the mission of the CDC? What disease are they trying to control, reality? Common sense?

COnsidering the prevalence of STDs among the GLBTQ etc. demographic, I'd postulate that promoting that lifestyle (pick one) is antithetical to the mission of improving public health.

But then, COVID proved to me the CDC has gone political, and no longer primarily supports the mission of improving/maintaining overall public health. This may be a reflection of the head of HHS.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Congress sure in hell needs to step up.....

"This was shown to daycare owners in NC.

A teacher used a doll to teach gender identity to 4-5 year olds.

When a child brings up “non-binary,” the teachers say it’s “a huge testament to how much we’ve been talking about it in the classroom” & “it’s constantly in conversation” (Video)

If you are the parent or grandparent of a child under 18, please do what you can to get them out of the public school.

I can not agree more. They don't even teach what they are supposed to. A lot of these kids can't even read well. 9999hair out0000

Why is this even a topic of discusssion in Elementary Schools?

Prepubescent children need not be "educated" in this, there is NO need.

Middle School, Grades 6-8, onset of puberty for some, clinical discussion in 8th grade science class including mechanisms of becoming pregnant, without any discussion of sexual preferences, etc.

High School: Health or Biology Class, clinical discussion of anatomy, physiology, diseases and conditions brought on by sexual behaviour.

No programming about what is not natural and normal behaviour should happen, ever.
Leave that for sociology and psych classes in college.

Mom Explains What It Took to Rescue Daughter From Transgenderism
By Virginia Allen
 Published on January 31, 2023

Erin Friday’s daughter was introduced to gender identity ideology in a comprehensive sex-ed class in seventh grade.

“The seed was planted after that class,” Friday says. “And in fact, all of her friends, there were five, sat in my front yard saying what their new labels were.”

Friday says she was “alarmed by the language that they were using, including ‘pansexual,’ which is not a term that 11-year-olds should know.”

The mother began looking into what her daughter was learning in school and was struck by the fact that other adults were not also questioning the teaching of gender ideology to middle schoolers.

When her daughter said she was “transgender,” Friday began taking decisive steps to rescue her from transgenderism. She took her daughter’s phone, put her in a new school, and tried her best to surround the preteen with the truth about who she was as a female. It was not easy, but Friday says, as a parent, “you have to be strong enough, your love for your child has to be strong enough, to take their vitriol.”

After about a year and a half, Friday’s daughter stopped claiming a transgender identity. Today, through the work of the parental support group Our Duty, Friday is helping other families navigate through gender identity ideology. ... More

An admirable job (particularly the step of removing the daughter from that public school).
