Gender ideology may be child abuse

In April this year, a Canadian judge found a father guilty of “family violence” for publicly and privately referring to his 14-year-old daughter, who identifies as a boy, as a girl. He has been further banned from using her birth name, and from attempting to persuade her to abandon treatment (testosterone shots) for gender dysphoria.

Monique Robles points out (LifeSiteNews, April 25, 2019) that the case stems from the fact that when the girl claimed to be transgender at age 13, school authorities sent her and her mother, without the father’s consent, to a transgender activist psychologist, who recommended that she begin hormone therapy.

The father believes that the girl does not have the “mental capacity and emotional maturity” to make the decision to have testosterone treatments, which can have irreversible effects, and is seeking to have the treatments terminated.
