UPDATE: Lawyers threaten The Rebel for misgendering 14-year-old in BC

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

Two years ago, Professor Jordan Peterson predicted this would happen, and now it has: The Rebel recently published a video which allegedly misgendered a teenager and now we are being told to remove it… or else.


SUPPORT OUR INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM

An ongoing court case in British Columbia has been eroding the parental rights of a father who does not wish his 14-year-old biological daughter to be given the hormone replacement therapy promoted by the teen's mother. Among the orders given by the court is a gag order extending to both the father and to the father's lawyer Carey Linde demanding that they do not “misgender” the child.

In an exclusive interview with The Rebel, lawyer Carey Linde referred to the teenager as "she." We published the interview, and we'd do it again.

“A 14 year old isn’t “yours”” Says, nobody who could stop me. I wouldn’t let a judge stop me. "

The judge can indeed stop you, up to and including jail time.

Teenagers are not chattel. They have their own rights.

Andrew Stephenson if a 14 year can make this choice then they are adult enough to face adult consequences for crime as well RIGHT???”

Ever heard the term “tried as an adult”? Depending on the crime, it can happen.

ALBERTA MAGA commented 3 days ago
Andrew Stephenson what medical consensus are you talking about? Please enlighten me as to when this happened”

I don’t know the exact timing, but it’s been around since the 80s at least. You hear about it now as governments are acknowledging their right to exist without being targeted for hate. Even the Religious Right acknowledges that gender dysphoria is a real thing, even if they protest against actually treating it (why do they feel so entitled to meddle in other’s lives? Jesus, or something).

I have read most of the comments, with great interest. I am bothered by the fact that with all that’s going wrong in the world today, there is a court case over a pronoun. I should perhaps add here, that I am a great fan of Jordan Peterson and I agree with him on pretty well everything.

Hello All,
I think you people are not seeing the true enemy! For Instance the Justass system is where i would lay the blame. If this goes to court it will be ruled in favour of the mother. It will already have been decided as these so called judges no their obedience is to the sacred institution and what is needed for the future. Every country is fighting for the honer of being the leader and to be recognized as such on the world stage. And your country dear old Canada is the most obedient and folds like a wet noodle, the hell with truth or law.

This is called neo-marxism or neo-socialism if you wish. The classic marxism is based on the struggle of the oppressed working class against the capitalist oppressors. Today, there are no oppressed workers, i.e. no oppressed and, therefore no oppressors, hence in this leftist struggle for power they must be invented. Thus we have new oppressed: LGBT, muslims, blacks, other visible minorities (although they are becoming majorities), disabled, women, etc. As to oppressors, we have so-called mystical white supremacists, males, who carry “toxic” masculinity, and simply white males (for being white) as a climax of evil, who are the worst possible oppressors. In this particular case, there is a clear example of oppressed vise oppressor. Transgenderism is a mental disorder often combined with hormonal deficit. So, the authorities are promoting and facilitate a mental disorder for their strife for power.

This is an important case. If that Dad loses, it will set a very bad legal precedent.

“A 14 year old isn’t “yours”” Says, nobody who could stop me. I wouldn’t let a judge stop me.

My children were MINE until they became legal age. My responsibility.
MINE, not some childless bureaucrat. You live in a parallel universe Andrew, and you underestimate the powers of maternal/paternal instinct.
It is a love and fierce protective devotion that only those with children of their own understand. I would never give my children over to or allow them to be led by any "professional’, if it went against my instinct as a parent.

Robert you may have just described “Stephenson’s” childhood. Didn’t that troll claim on a thread some time ago that it was a she before then a he or was it a he then a she? No matter, it has claimed so many things, my fav still is the dozens of alleged educational certifications, though mental certification probably is closer to the truth as evidenced in so many older threads.

Holy Crap… Weird Science!! From first hand knowledge of this latest “Trend”.. I will now give my 2 cents. My Nephew, at the age of just under 40, decided (He was a She). So I got to thinking about what went wrong, and now I know.. 1: My Sister is a Nutbar, and that’s a given.. 2: Her kid was fed Ritalin throughout his growing years. 3: The “messed up” Educational System in Mississauga screwed his mind up, with all kinds of Leftist/NWO/Pro LGBT BS.. And guess what? The kid still lives in the basement, and cannot support himself.. Oopsy, I misgendered.. Lol.. Ya, like I give a damn.. Last time I talked with my messed up Sister, I said to her “Karma will get you and has already paid you a visit, and it’s living in your basement”..

A 14 year old isn’t “yours”. At that age they have certain legal rights of their own, particularly in terms of medical treatment. If your will, and their will, differed, theirs would probably be considered more important.

This misgendering nonsense is nothing but a power trip. A push for control, total control.

Not when they are mine and they are minors. It is not only my place it is my job.

Medical consensus for consent be damned. Mess with my minor at your own risk.

“Leftards were screaming that science must be heeded and adhered to yet now they scream IGNORE SCIENCE!!”

Generally speaking, someone with a winning argument lets the argument speak for itself without indulging in name calling.

“Science” relies on observation. It has been observed that sometimes physical sex and mental gender don’t align. Ergo, it is scientific to acknowledge this, even if we don’t quite know why this should be the case.

I want to protect children from people just like you Andrew."

Is it your place to “protect” them? Does that not infringe on their freedoms? I do not encourage one course of action or the other, and here I defer to the professionals who have a better grasp of the situation than I. Regardless, it is important to leave free choice to individuals.

“but you Andrew, think that is old enough to make a decision about a sex change?”

That seems to be the medical consensus that yes, in general, 14 year olds are able to understand the ramifications of it and give informed consent, certainly well enough to have separate security-of-person not under parental authority.
commented 2019-06-06 17:18:21 -0400
I laugh when morons tell me I am misgendering. You got a penis then you are a male. Got a vagina and you are a female. Pretty simple really. Mental issues are a whole different discussion.
commented 2019-06-06 15:05:55 -0400
14 yr. olds. are not old enough to have legal intercourse, get married in a civilized culture, go to war vote, drive a car, but you Andrew, think that is old enough to make a decision about a sex change? We are not talking about a belly button ring here.
The two sides will never meet. I just pray that the courts come to their senses and do the decent thing for the child and let a few more years go by.

“You could just as easily swap it”
I knew you would try that Andrew. Its not about what is best for the child with you and people like you, it is about winning. There is nothing scuzzier or slimier than that. I want to protect children from people just like you Andrew.

“A child’s gender should be dependent on what ‘parts’ it is born with”

Biologically – a vagina/uterus/clitoris are FEMALE parts, and a penis/testicles/scrotum are MALE parts no matter what the Leftards now claim. Rather amusing though how years ago these very same Leftards were screaming that science must be heeded and adhered to yet now they scream IGNORE SCIENCE!!

That the mother could not consider the wishes of the father of this child is the reason it is in the press in the first place. If you want to point fingers Andrew, point in that direction. I have no respect for any mother who would allow this to proceed for a 14 year old. None.”

You could just as easily swap it – why does the father not consider the wishes of the mother, and of his child? Why is he making a big deal of it? How come you think the father is somehow more reliable than the mother, the kid, and the doctors? I don’t think the information is available for you or I to make that determination.

“Andrew S. the left keep shifting the goal post. The fathers genuine and reasonable concerns are being ignored. I am proud to stand in support of him and his battle to save his daughter a lifetime of pain. To wait until the child is fully past puberty and is of legal age where supposedly the female born child can make an informed decision, is the only fair thing to do for that child, never mind the parents.
What about the mother? What kind of nutcase must she be that she can’t wait a few years? What is her rush? What is her agenda?”

I doubt they’ve been ignored. I’m sure they were taken into consideration. That they still decide against you doesnt’ mean that they ignored you. It means that all in all, the best option was different than the one you wanted.

There’s no evidence to support the ’lifetime of pain". Cases of regret do occur, but are rare enough that statistically speaking, not transitioning causes dysphoric individuals more problems.

14 is old enough to provide informed consent for medical procedures, if the child understands the ramifications. Such is the way the law works.

We have no evidence that the mother is a “nutcase”. It is probable that all involved individuals are mentally competent but merely have different opinions as to the validity of the argument. That is, however, speculative. Either and/or both could easily be nutcases Regardless, it is silly to deny the child his wishes because the parents can’t get along.

“Their warped sense of reality is the only one they espouse no matter the amount of evidence placed before them.”

The “evidence” is largely based on tradition, rather than actual evidence. The “evidence” is, in essence, that we have no idea what’s going on, and anybody that pretends they do, is … well, falling victim to the Dunning-Kruger effect.. Biology isn’t nearly as deterministic as they originally thought.

Remember how sequencing the human genome was going to solve everything? It didn’t. In fact it created more questions than answers. We can’t reliably look at genes and predict an output, even today we start with the starting condition, AND the end result, and try to figure out what’s happening in between. Long story short we don’t know. There are generalities that mostly seem to hold true, but also exceptions that the generalities can’t explain nor refute.

The only evidence we have is that sometimes people’s genetic and/or physical sex, and psychological gender, don’t always align. Traditionally they ignored when it did. We no longer do. We have no idea why that happens, only that it does.

The mother is using the child to get back at the father.
commented 2019-06-06 13:35:37 -0400
A child’s gender should be dependent on what ‘parts’ it is born with, to try and change this with injected hormones can only leads to homosexuality,
this means that there will be another family less, in this case, the white race.
Let nature do it’s thing, it knows best. Politicians with agenda’s that aim to kill of the white race are, to put it mildly, unwelcome.
