Progressives have become so obsessed with the "transgender movement" that they are fighting for children who haven't even hit puberty yet to be able to change their gender. Now it seems that the leftwing doesn't even think it's important for the parents of these small children to give their consent before a child begins transitioning...
A legal group is speaking out after learning that a school facilitated an 11-year-old girl’s “gender transition” behind her family’s back, and only informed them when she had become suicidal.
The girl told her teachers at age 11 she wanted to be a boy but didn’t want her parents to know. She became suicidal after a year of living a double life as a boy at school and a girl at home.
Only when she told her guidance counsellor she was depressed and wanted to kill herself did the school inform her parents, says lawyer John Carpay, director of the Calgary-based Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF).
The parents knew their daughter, who is moderately autistic, was struggling, but had no idea the school was facilitating her “transition” to a “boy,” Carpay said.
Carpay believes this is proof — if any were needed — that the Alberta NDP government’s radical bill forbidding schools from telling parents if their child joins a gay-straight alliance without the child’s consent will harm vulnerable children.
“Apart from the actual cases, it’s something common sense would tell you: If parents are pushed out, then you’re pushing out the greatest sources of love and the greatest source of protection that children have,” he told LifeSiteNews.
“The law doesn’t seem to recognize that the political activists don’t love these children anywhere nearly as much as their parents do,” he said. “There’s an underlying assumption that political activists are 100 per cent trustworthy and can have access to kids without parental supervision, which is outrageous.”
It's incredibly alarming that the left is fighting for schools to have more control over a child's life than their parents do. A school's job is to educate children, not to facilitate them in hiding major life decisions a child is thinking about making, from their parents.
While we can't say for sure, there's a good chance the girl would not have reached the point of being suicidal if her parents had been informed by the school of what was going on sooner. The child then would not have had to live a stressful double life.
Furthermore, an 11-year-old is far too young to make a decision that will change their lives forever, such as changing their gender. Eleven year old's haven't even hit puberty yet, which means that there's no telling how they will mature sexually once they become adults.
If this girl still feels that she wants to change gender when she is 18, she should be free to do so. However, until then, her parents should have the final say over what she chooses to do. All good parents have their children's best interests at heart far more than leftwing school activists ever could.
