The trial of a Canadian dad took place this week, with sentencing taking place Friday April 16th. The 6 month sentence handed down culminates a lengthy battle which this man waged against the state vis à vis chemical castration and sterilisation of children that’s currently happening in the name of gender affirmation and the SOGI123 ideology in which schools actively peddle the genderist belief system to students.
SOGI123 feeds children lies, telling them they are in the wrong body, that their sex was chosen at birth (as opposed to observed and recorded) and that sex isn’t real. Psychologically distressed children receive the message that they are in the wrong body—”dysphoria” they call it—and need to “transition”, meaning alter their bodies with experimental hormone treatment and with surgery to appear as the opposite sex. In many cases these conversations take place in secret and the social transitioning begins with the parents unaware and uninvolved. And then at some point the child announces they are the opposite sex and want to take the next steps. Parents are told it’s none of their business and that’s that, a family has essentially been tanked by the well-meaning educators who view themselves as social justice messiahs and who actually resemble social justice pariahs.
Someone, an adult with a nefarious woke intent, plants the seed in the child’s head— “What if you are ‘trans’ … you’re a boy trapped in that girl body” the teacher or guidance counsellor would say to the non conforming tomboy-looking young girl who is most likely autistic and would get a diagnosis if only the waiting list weren’t several years long. The SOGI evangelicals, like their intellectual predecessor Harry Benjamin, have a dualistic vision of human beings and insist that the body must be altered, even at the cost of mutilation of physicality and lobotimisation of the endocrine system, to match the mind.
Cross hormones chemically castrate—freeze the gonads in place. For a pubescent child the object of gender identity treatment is to stop sexual maturation and so application of cross hormones prior to ripening of the gonads necessarily compromises reproductive function and possibly sexual function as well. Sexual maturation serves a physiologic and metabolic and neurologic purpose. This time sensitive mechanism which facilitates transition of the human being from child to adulthood cannot be paused like a Netflix or Amazon Prime show! One need not look far or with much rigour to find mounting evidence of the harm of this experimental treatment being shoved onto children and their parents with the participation of a captured medical field. For adults the physiologic effects of cross hormone castration cast a wide ripple—it led Alan Turing to the suicidality that caused him to take his life. In fact, research recommends caution in giving gnRHa (ie Leuprolide aka Lupron) to sex offenders because of it’s intense effects! Could we maybe afford children the same rigours of ethical care we are affording criminal nonces, or nah?
When it comes to the children at the centre of the SOGI controversy, with respect to psychotherapy and any kind of trauma counselling to explore underlying issues—the SOGI evangelicals have opted to regard these as Gender Identity Conversion Therapy, a bullsh1t term they essentially invented because they are riding on the coattails of gay rights and need to fold their imaginary gender identity conversion therapy in with gay conversion therapy, a very real and abusive phenomenon—. Because apparently it’s healthier to believe a lie some grifter told you that you are actually the opposite sex and call this lie “gender identity”, (a nebulous and unscientific term that defies definition and cannot be objectively measured), and swallow the bullsh1t threat that you will kill yourself unless you become the opposite sex than it is to explore the reasons adolescents feel uncomfortable in their skin and feel like they are someone else. The clever scam of Harry Benjamin acolytes and SOGI/WPATH evangelicals was the creation of the whole myth of the sacred ‘gender identity’ to hide the derangement and ultimate misantrophy of their genderist ideas.
Anyone who knows anything at all about child development and child response to trauma sees this SOGI/WPATH “gender affirming” approach as a load of horse sh1t, in addition to being abusive. However the gender extremists have positioned themselves nicely under the rainbow umbrella, appropriating the LBG label and misleading the general public into thinking that gender identity is like being gay. In fact, gender identity is simply a modern form of sexism and a woke form of anti gay rhetoric and, ultimately genderism is gay conversion therapy and autistic eugenics.
CD and his wife separated and the child, as expected, exhibited behaviours which resemble trauma responses. The school coached the child to transition and the father had no idea until he saw the child’s picture and new identity in the year book during the 2015/16 school year. At the age of 13 the child began hormone treatment with cross sex hormone, which would effectively sterilise a pubescent child—whose gonads haven’t fully ripened—in addition to being an off label and experimental use with many adverse side effects and deleterious long term consequences. A lengthy family court battle ensued thru to the decision in which the BC Court of Appeal overturned the nonsense hyperbolic “family violence” charge vis à vis “misgendering” and, in fact criticised it as being against the child’s best interest because of it’s polarising effects and then thru to the decision and the order which CD disobeyed by going public.
Right wing reactionaries continue their narrative about Bill C-16 and forced speech in connection with this case because of the genderism aspect of the case. CD has stated he has no issue with the genderism aspect, he takes issue with the cross hormone treatment and with the notion that a 13 or 14 year old child has the capacity to consent to such profound and life altering treatment.
Can a child consent to it’s own sterilisation? Ethically and legally this seems deranged. Should a child who attempts suicide really be deemed mentally able to weight present benefit against long term risk, when a child lacks this ability developmentally to begin with? The High Court of England seemed to think not in its Bell v Tavistock ruling.
It seems to me, when we strip away the polemic narratives and the emotional rhetoric and look at cold hard fact, the case comes down to a few things—
Can a child consent to it’s own chemical castration/sterilisation?
What is the role of parents in safeguarding children from predacious healthcare practitioners who want to conduct the Mengelian experimentation on unsuspecting vulnerable children?
The Infant’s Act of BC states parents do not need to consent to their child’s chemical castration/sterilisation aka “gender affirming therapy”.
What is the role of school in brainwashing vulnerable children through some kind of woke reverse-inception indoctrination?
What is the school’s role vis à vis coaching students to devise a new identity in secret from their parents?
Do educators have the professional skill to facilitate such life altering therapies and is that their role, really?
Does anyone who keeps important information about a child’s psychological functioning and wellbeing from the parents really have the child’s best interest at heart?
Why are SOGI evangelicals so desperate to hide things from parents, and why are they so desperate and eager to drive a wedge between the child and it’s most important support system—parents and family?? This is extremist and cultish behaviour, it is predacious to focus on children and collaborate with them about secret identities without the knowledge of their parents!
Regarding CD directly, he made a choice to disobey the court order. The authorities arrested him for Contempt of Court, a criminal offense. He did not get arrested for misgendering his child. His arrest had nothing to do with pronouns or forced speech, it had to do with violating a gag order that required him to remain anonymous in the media to protect his child’s identity as well as the identities of the health care practitioners involved. Whatever we feel about this order, it is the order of the court and we can’t really decide which orders to follow like we are at a buffet.
From a parental perspective he acted in the interest of his child and in the interest of all children currently facing this ridiculous SOGI ideology telling them nonsense lies. From a legal and ethical perspective he violated his child’s privacy by emerging from his anonymity to speak out. Could he have spoken out and continued to criticise the SOGI process from behind the gag? Why did he feel the need to reveal himself? What process of analysis or weighing of consequence did he engage to determine that it would be in his child’s best interest to reveal the family name, and therefore the child’s identity? Why on earth were those signatures not redacted before those forms were shared with anyone?
Can we really say we care about child safeguarding if we refuse to acknowledge the child and family in this case has a right to privacy? This case is an important case for Canada, and now we must peel away the polemics, the emotional rhetoric, the manipulative and disingenuous narratives, and the ideologues’ misrepresentations and look at the facts before us and the groundwork laid out by the UK professionals who have been leading the charge against unethical gender identity therapy of children.
This case provokes strong reaction and emotion. CD made a decision, I believe in earnest, and he engaged in civil disobedience knowing the price he may pay. As a parent he was willing to pay that price. He spoke out and provided an important addition to the floundering discourse. He needs to get on with his life again, we need to let him. We need to remember these are human beings and not chess pieces. Principle > Emotion must remain the guide, especially considering we are opposing an ideology predicated upon the notion that feeling, ie emotional reaction one has at a time, overrides material reality and known fact.
Perhaps this is quite an emotionally unrewarding position I have taken and missive I have written about CD and the case of gender extremism facing Canada because it lacks the outrage many crave right now. Ego discomfort frequently provides the sources for true growth and transformation, so muddle through the multitude of weird feelings and work through the facts of the case—the two court decisions I’ve linked above provide great background free from polemic influence. Remember, with every decision we make, we face two choices: ego vs truth. It’s easy to pick ego and tell ourselves its truth we have chosen. All too easy. Remember yourself. Outrage serves no constructive purpose, it comes from ego.
Things seem bleak right now for Canada, politically. Let’s love Canada enough to take it back from the neo colonial wokester authoritarians who have tried to steal it from us. Let’s use principle, grassroots, and the law to wage this battle. Let’s remember human interest before warrior rhetoric and ego. Let’s try not to consume people and their lives for dopamine hits. Let’s continue battling body snatching SOGI-ists who are bent on the destruction of the family and society.
