“Psychological violence” to misgender kids: Trans, parental rights clash in Vancouver

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

Protests erupted in downtown Vancouver on Saturday. Many groups rallied outside of the Vancouver Art Gallery, some with parallel and others with conflicting messaging.

The largest crowd by far were rallying in support of a father whose daughter is receiving state mandated hormone injections against the wishes of the father.

Maxime Bernier's People's Party candidate Laura-Lynn Tyler-Thompson was the keynote speaker at that rally, speaking against SOGI. SOGI, which stands for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity is a transgender toolkit for educators, used to teach kids that it's hip for them to be trans... even if they are not.

Across the street, in opposition to the hundreds of pro free-speech, freedom of conscience, anti-antifa and parental rights activists were a couple dozen LGBT activists. If you only listened to the mainstream journalists at the event, you wouldn't know that the leftists were outnumbered 4 to 1 by the right wing attendees.

City TV's on-location reporter firmly planted herself among the socialists and communists in the LGBT group, breathlessly asking them if they “expected something like this in 2019,” referring to the parents across the street who were opposed to state organized transgender propaganda.

Another anti-SOGI protester told The Rebel that Global News up and fled the event when she asked their reporter if they would be covering anything but the LGBT side of the conflict.

In the above video, you'll see interviews with both sides of the rally, something that you will not find anywhere else. The Rebel is committed to sharing the other side of the story at RebelInvestigates.com, even if it runs against the marching orders that Justin Trudeau and Katie Telford have given the Canadian media.

Thankful for the reporting of this very important reality in Canada. As parents we have responsibilites and rights to direct our children whilst they are under our care, this situation is removing parental responsibilities and rights and HARMING children, long before they are developped enough to make sound decisions.
God Bless all those who turned out to express that the government has NO PLACE in raising our children.

“The largest crowd by far were rallying in support of a father whose daughter is receiving state mandated hormone injections against the wishes of the father.”

Love how you fail to mention that the mother IS in favor of the trans choices, you guys are clearly trying to obfuscate that fact and make it sound the government went above this kids parents. The proof of that is in the comments wherein all your sub-intelligence toe liners clearly think the government is acting without any parental consent.

The father is essentially being verbally abusive according the the trans child and the mother.

You guys are spreading propaganda for shame.

This whole transgender tyranny needs to be labeled for what it really is-GENDER APPROPRIATION!

Liza R, I will not have to deal with the consequences.. I’m out of Canada soon, and I’ve earned that right… I do feel for those that will have to deal with what comes next, but not my problem. Every person has to stand up and fight for their own rights.. And the rights of their Children, and Grandchildren… I’ve done my part, so the future is not my problem.. I, and my family suffered the consequences of the Left during the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s.. We all came out ahead because we fought for what was right… We win..

Now progressives and teachers can scare kids to death telling them the world is going to end in 12 years or whatever because that is not indoctrination or violence LMAO!
commented 2019-06-18 18:45:22 -0400
If kids are mature and capable enough to make this decision then why are parents legally financially responsible for them at the same age? And why do parents have to pay if their child damages something?
commented 2019-06-18 18:44:13 -0400
Andrew your Christinaophobia is violence then as well , or is the term JESUS FREAKS inclusive and loving LMAO?
commented 2019-06-18 18:42:47 -0400
Andrew Stephenson it is not an agenda and brainwashing is not an alternative. They are free to make these choices as adults. If they are mature enough at that age then they should face adult sentencing when they commit a crime.
commented 2019-06-18 18:41:05 -0400
Andrew Stephenson a teacher or a book telling a kid they are not their sex is INDOCTRINATION! Try learning the meaning of words.
commented 2019-06-18 18:40:08 -0400
Andrew Stephenson you said Gender. Try and keep up. And a pronoun is a made up label. And why should it only apply to them, why can i not demand to be called King Stud as my pronoun??

Robert Sloane said, " It’s not about being “inclusive”, and they know it.. It’s all about hating everyone that does not “comply”." and I agree. These people are the furthest thing from live and let live and they call us the hateful fascists and bigots.

This crescendo will bring in change, of that there is no doubt. We are reaching ‘the peak of a gradual increase’ in cray cray. Either objective truth rules or chaos does. Life altering decisions are not for children to make. Their brains haven’t yet developed and their life experience isn’t broad enough to do that, which is why they are under the care of parents until they mature.

Further, to pretend that SOGI is not forced indoctrination by our institutions is just more subjective nonsense. Parents aren’t having it.
While I agree that other people’s children are not our responsibility or anyone’s responsibility but the parents of those children, a continuing SOGI push will effect society. As Dave Sutton points out, “If our children today are being brainwashed in public schools then try to imagine what their children will be like. If that’s even possible.”
We will all reap the consequences.

Dan M., it’s okay to hate your enemy. They hate you. It took me many years to understand that. And with their (Government sponsored) “agenda” now growing exponentially and out in the open, I have no issue with any person responding with the same hate that the LGBTQ community espouses.. What’s good for the Goose, is good for the Gander.. And just to remind all, June is LGBTQ (blah, blah, blah) Pride Month. And June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day. And June 27th is Canadian Multiculturalism Day… So I guess June is not the best Month for Straight White Males. Funny thing though, is that all of these “Special Interest” groups really do use their time to slam and blame us Straight White Males. It’s not about being “inclusive”, and they know it.. It’s all about hating everyone that does not “comply”.. And yes, we are not supposed to protect ourselves. Are we having fun, or what?
commented 2019-06-18 13:04:03 -0400
And to Joe L., I agree with you. Holy Crap!! There are many videos out there that cover the same topic. Why do they all look the same? Why are they all obnoxious? Why can none of them carry on a real conversation? These types are truly messed up in the head…
commented 2019-06-18 12:59:06 -0400
First, I do not understand why any of you respond to Andrew S. Ignore and do not read his posts, which is what I do.. Second, it is clear that our Educational Systems are to blame for this mess, but it is up to the Parents to counteract whatever they believe is wrong for their Children. Then it is up to them to take the necessary action and make it right. If Parents do not watch out for their Children, then I have no sympathy for the outcome. Their Children are not my/our responsibility. Finally, I cannot be happier that I do not have to worry about this any longer. My Daughter turned out fine (because) I was there for her when she needed me…

I am very glad there’s someone covering this…from the perspective of the truth, common sense and moral absolutes – as opposed to the BS and lies from the paid whores, degenerates and liars of the FNMP (Fake News Media Party)!
Keep up the good work, Keean.

I’m feeling a little overwhelmed these days by how I feel about the homosexual agenda (which includes the whole LGTBQRSTUVVYWHATEVERBS), homosexuals, and their enablers – both officers of the state and civilian enablers.
When I was young and an urban liberal, (that was difficult to admit) I had tolerance for most things…now that I’m older, more experienced and wiser, I have very little tolerance for anything – and everything lefty!
I mean how is a man supposed to feel when under attack? In Canada these days you’re NOT ALLOWED to defend yourself. If you do, your attacker may or may not go to jail…but you definitely will be in jail! WTF?!
I’m being attacked for being conservative, Christian, heterosexual, gun-owning and not conforming to the Global Marxist agenda, and daring to stand up and express myself about it!
If someone attacked me in person – let’s just say they wouldn’t get within arms reach of me – and that’s my right, and – I think – my duty as a man, to defend myself and mine. So why does the left want to criminalize self defense while they slap criminals on the wrist and set them loose on the public? Think about why?
The overwhelming nature of my feelings these days is because of what I feel. I have never been a hater – a screecher, yes – but never a hater – cause and effect has changed that. Those ‘people’ at that event – the group and individuals – that support that kind of baby-murdering, same-sex, pedophilic, weirdo-sicko nonsense…the only thing I feel towards them is disgust and hatred – and that feeling bothers me more than anything!
The liberal left is attacking me for who I am and who I am not…and therefore my natural, and correct response is to FIGHT BACK!
If I do – I go to jail or get murdered in the process by armed law enforcement officers…for standing up for my rights as a Canadian citizen and as a human being!

THIS MUST CHANGE!

They say, “You can’t judge a book by it’s cover.” but, holy crap, can you ever judge a book by it’s cover!
I teach my children to be kind and not to jump to conclusions especially about a persons LOOKS. But when a girl with purple or red hair and several piercings tell’s you to F()ck off or completely ignores your question? JUDGE away. Actually it’s not judging, the facts are right in front of you, swearing at you, and looking unusual.

Dave Sutton:
“Teach children that transgender is normal and tomorrow they will force it upon all of us’

Nobody’s strapping you down and shooting you full of estrogen, so no, it’s not being “forced” on you. At the same time, you can’t stop someone else from voluntarily doing the same – you can’t force someone else to comply to a cisgender lifestyle.

This represents increasing freedom, not the opposite. You may not like an idea but you can’t stop others from engaging in it, as was once the case.

This is Canada. The government doesn’t get to take control over our children against our will"

What does the child want?

Andrew Stephenson you support others being forced to use pronouns , "

I pose a simple question. Who is the best person to determine the appropriate pronoun to describe person A? Is it person A, describing themselves, or person B, someone else?

You’re basically telling us that you, alone, bear the right to determine someone else’s gender. In fact, you do not have this privilege. They and they alone do.

ALBERTA MAGA commented 10 hours ago
Andrew Stephenson sorry but indoctrination is not the same as self determination "

You’re right. Self determination is not indoctrination. Being made aware of the right to self-determination is not indoctrination. They have the right to be made aware of an option. People may then choose it; if it’s acceptable to do so that may be in fairly high numbers. Much as the societal acceptance of tattoos has made them very widespread (and, seeing someone with tattoos is not pro-tattoo indoctrination either).

If your anti-trans agenda can only stand if you deliberately suppress the alternatives, it’s really not a strong perspective. There is no need for the teachers to enforce strict gender rules, only to prevent bullying when the boundaries blur. This is the ultimate free society where you can be what you want to be.

Western civilization is in a state of fast decline and all as a result of our Marxist educational system. The only way to stop them is to fire (or fire at) them.
Remember the Ontario sex education program posted by Ezra. To a male grade one student, ‘If you like the the look of the boy sitting next to you, it is OK to hold his hand, if he wants to. You can also ask him for a kiss if you like’…….
To me this is Effin disgusting! Not because of the sexual connotations but because of the system that condones it….‘O’ Canaduh.

A thought just occurred to me. Take into consideration the parents of today who support their trans kids by telling them “you are normal to feel this way…”. Furthermore, the indoctrination taking place in elementary schools where young children (starting in grade 1) are also being indoctrinated into this lifestyle. These young children spend 8 hours a day being taught by leftist teachers who they themselves embrace the leftist ideology and are constantly reminding our children that this way of life is normal and you must embrace it and nobody, not even your parents can tell you that you can’t be another gender. To ad insult to injury, how much time do these same children spend with their parents after school? Do they sit down with mom and dad (providing there is a father in the home to begin with) and have a discussion about the reality of the trans lifestyle, or are these children left alone to play video games with no parental input?
Statistics show us that the average amount of time spent by children with parents per day is 104 minutes (1 hour and 44 minutes per day). Let’s recap. children are in school 8 hours a day listening to transgender/homosexual propaganda with no ability to challenge or refute it, even worse at that age they simply embrace whatever they are told by adults. Once at home there is bare minimum contact with parents who hardly ever even discuss what happens in school leaving the child to embrace every lie they are fed.

What children are taught in school today will become national policy tomorrow. Teach children that transgender is normal and tomorrow they will force it upon all of us. Teach children that respecting authority is not to be embraced and tomorrow we will have anarchy and chaos in the streets. Teach children that the only opinion that matters is that of their college/university instructors and they become nothing more than foot soldiers of the tyrannical left. Interestingly enough, this is exactly what happened in HItler’s Germany once the nazi’s took control of the nation. The nazi’s decided what children will be taught, how they will be raised, what they will reject and who they will hate. What was the result? The SS was born out of the ranks of indoctrinated youth and they were totally devoted to the whim of Hitler. It all starts by teaching people (children) what to believe and what to reject.
Finally. If our children today are being brainwashed in public schools then try to imagine what their children will be like. If that’s even possible.

I can almost tell which ones support transgender, they not only dress ‘weird’, they have a FU attitude in your face, no dialogue, just FU. It’s been proven that it’s a mental issue, and kids struggling at young age, usually grow out of it by 14, some may take a little longer. Stop taking away our rights Trudeau.

We all know that those with gender dysphoria are mentally ill but why oh why have they been allowed to take over the asylum ? A totalitarian state taking away parents rights to raise their own children is more than insane it is evil . Jihadi Justine Castro and his very doubtful sexuality are obviously behind this lunacy . The media , of course , have been paid off by him / her , whichever !

Andrew Stephenson sorry but indoctrination is not the same as self determination because some demented teacher pushes progressive propaganda. Funny how you are fine with schools or warped parents pushing them on Gender but no one else is allowed to call out their brainwashing. HYPOCRITE!
