School Helps 11-Year-Old Girl 'Transition' To Boy, and Hide This From Her Parents...

Rebel Staff

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.

Andrew i never said they were, the NDP and you think they are. Supporting being able to kill them until the moment they are born seems to me to be someone who views them as Chattel. And you cannot hold parents responsible for their lives or actions if someone else can force their values on them. People who change diapers and pay the damn bills should have say and be informed of their childs state of mind.
And sorry tot tell you that not forcing kids into the LGBTQZZZ crap or making them think they are another gender is not a crime against them , nor is it harming them.

Andrew Stephenson said, “Children are not chattel…”

If the schools want to be parents they can pay the bills and change the diapers.

People like Andrew are too ignorant to know this is grooming and brainwashing and they somehow love the lefts obsession with sexualizing children. Sick scum.

Andrew other media will not want this story told. And sorry but it is not their kid, they have no right withholding this info. Your commies are not masters of all humanity like you think. And kids do not know they want to get a sex change. And i doubt you would say the same if the state stopped one of those demented parent from brainwashing their kids into being another gender. And what happens when the state is hostile? If you want to decide , have your own kid. Since you decide for others i can have a say in abortion.

I can’t find this story from an impartial source (literally everything I’ve looked for is angry right wing groups huffing and puffing, and is notably short on facts. Perhaps someone has a link to a real news site that is a bit less about being angry and a bit more about telling us what actually happened?)

There are a couple of unaddressed questions here. Why was the kid afraid to talk to his/her parents? Was it because he/she was afraid of opening up? What did the “transition” entail? If it was changing clothes then I see no issue here. If it was more and the parents were potentially hostile,t hen yes, it should have been handled differently. If the parents were going to be hostile the kid should have been removed for their own wellbeing.

Oh, and 11 is well into the normal range for hitting puberty. Thanks to improved nutrition and possibly exposure to endocrine disruptors, as early as 9 is not uncommon now.

The story is even crazier than the headline. I never thought you could live a double life alternating between genders.

How can a pre-pubescent child even understand what changing gender is about, without the interference of those in authority that think transgenderism is cool?

When I was a kid I always preferred playing sports and games with the boys, because they were happy to have you join in if you were as good as they were. I had my six shooters and played Cowboys and Indians, football, baseball etc. The girls always had ulterior motives about including you in their games, which could change from moment to moment… depending on what you had that they wanted.

Perhaps if there had been some sick teacher who encouraged me to become a boy I might have considered it… not because of my sexuality, which wasn’t a thing then, but so I could fit in more with the group of kids that I most enjoyed being with. At that age it might have seemed like a cool idea!

Today I am a happy, well adjusted grandmother and grateful that I am living my life as a woman. But what about those unsuspecting children who are preyed on by the Marxist education system, becoming social experiments? Perhaps, if left alone, they would grow up becoming well adjusted people in the gender to which they were born. Perhaps they wouldn’t have become suicidal from living a double existence which they were compelled to keep from the most supportive people they have in their lives… their parents.

Keeping such information about the meddling of school teachers from parents is criminal and needs to be against the law! Schools, teachers and others should not be allowed to have so much control over any children that are not their own. I wonder how many of those teachers would encourage their own children to change genders? The answer to that question could be truly telling!

I hope the parents of the sighted case win their law suit with largesse and can force changes in the corrupt education system. Thank you John Carpay for working on their behalf!!

Billy Howard, I couldn’t agree more!
I posted this video for our resident troll Andrew on another thread, I will re-post here as these so called Trans- activists are peddling lies.

How about focusing on actual reading, riting and rithmatic?

What is wrong with parents these days? Some parents definitely need a swift kick, their total apathy has allowed for this garbage (indoctrination of children) to take place and be considered normal.

Aqua Velva – It’s uncanny how Pink Floyd nails what is going on in our schools in that song. The government and psychotic union teachers who are undermining parents at every turn. They are even trying to get our children used to eating at school, under the guise that parents are sending their children to school hungry. What a load of garbage. There may be a few due to abuse issues, but they are making all parents out to be incapable of raising their own children.

We don’t need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!

It’s shocking that something like this could happen in our country and we should be concerned that it is a sign that we are slipping towards eventual totalitarianism. In totalitarian states separating children from parents was a standard operating procedure. Parents could not be trusted to properly indoctrinate their kids and might even fill their heads full of incorrect ideas and rebellious thoughts. The government’s “apparatchiks” in the education system were involved in all kinds of efforts to remove the child from parental control including encouraging kids to rat out parents who criticized the state and it’s leaders, to sending kids off to state run facilities to encouraging them to think of the state, party and its leaders as parental surrogates. Considering that many of our education bureaucrats have a romanticized impression of totalitarian states, I can see them putting the SOP’s to use.

The Marxist Gang that operates our educational System needs to be disbanded. All hey are doing is teaching While Kids how to be Gay. ‘The ultimate birth control’. Schools should teach, only the technical side of what happens when a child is conceived. The rest is up to the Parents or the Child will find out by experimentation.

If we let the likes of Nottley have her way, then we will have nothing but childless Gay people to create a none existent future population.

The parents should sue the school and the NDP gov’t for child abuse (mental stress). They should sue for $millions. This is a test case.
