Today I'm in Vancouver to speak with the lawyer of the father in the shocking British Columbia Supreme Court decision that ruled he must call his transgender daughter by male pronouns or risk a charge of “family violence.”
The Supreme Court judge handed down a ruling siding with the teenager, stating that the father has no authority to deny his child's intake of potentially dangerous Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which stimulates masculine sex characteristics. Further, the father is legally restrained from trying to persuade his Grade Nine teenager to reconsider the potentially negative impact of such a regimen.
In response, the father is fighting the court on the grounds that his own Constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms have been unduly restricted.
So why would I be speaking to this man's lawyer Carey Linde, and not the father himself?
During the proceedings, his child's lawyers had received a protective order stemming from a separate petition to the court which effectively restrains this girl's father from giving interviews about this case.
In Canada, who gets to decide if a young child goes on a field trip? A sleepover? What about the child getting braces? Certainly not the state. Parents reserve that right.
And that is as it should be, parents have the sole power to decide what their children do, when they do it, and where they do it. Nobody cares more for the wellbeing of children than their parents (much to the puzzlement of cultural Marxists.)
For some reason however, in Canada, this judge has set the precedent that trans children can not enjoy the parental protections that every other Canadian child does. How would you feel if your parents were overruled by a court when they told you not to stick your fingers in the paper shredder?
Parental rights are not just the rights of parents. They are the God given rights of a child, allowing them to have someone with real life experience to be their greatest advocates.
We live in a world where the state is fine with parents putting their children in mortal peril by not refusing vaccine injections (which science tells us is safe and effective), but if a parent refuses injections of Gonadotropin releasing hormones (which science tells us has adverse effects on bone mineralization, that it compromises fertility, and effects on long term executive brain function is uncertain), well, then the parents are engaging in "family violence." That is a direct quote from the judge.
