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.

“Why do the left – in general – insist on refusing to see and acknowledge their hypocrisy …”

No doubt to the fact that they rarely engage their brain. Their warped sense of reality is the only one they espouse no matter the amount of evidence placed before them.

Andrew Stephenson: The Rebel is not the ones meddling in others lives. It is the depraved, disgusting SJW’s trying to force their asinine view of the world on people that actually have a brain.

Yeah, they kinda are. The kids’ gender identity is nobody’s business but their own. The Rebel, by publishing such a detailed discussion of their private medical details, is being very invasive.

Further, deliberate misgendering is basically telling the world that you know more about this individual’s life than they themselves do. It’s not The Rebels’, nor yours, nor anybody elses’, place, to make that decision for them. They alone can make it.

Why do the left – in general – insist on refusing to see and acknowledge their hypocrisy, illustrated clearly by their trying to shut down dissent or argument to their indoctrinated delusion narrative and irrational Marxist ideology, instead of debating and discussing, or proving or defending their argument, validly?
The only reasonable explanation is that the left – in general – have a mental disorder…and it’s called liberalism, or progressivism, or leftyism…and the way that works is, you must have the mental disorder in order to buy into the delusional, lefty irrationality and complete lack of morality…which is why it’s the left – in general – who choose to be the moral relativists.
That this irrationality is being backed up and enforced by co opted officers of the state is what should be scarin’ the beegeezus out of Canadians!
It’s not only the FNMP (Fake News Media Party) that are THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE, it’s the entire 5 P Professional cabal that are the face of the enemy, the body of the serpent…we need to find the head of that snake and cut it off!
WHACK!!!

So who is paying these lawyers? What or who is the backer/backers for the queer community? We need to know exactly who we are fighting here.
The female born child is underage, so is incapable of making a serious decision like a sex change and has a right to protection from such interference. It is a parents right and obligation to protect their children at all costs.”

That’s not strictly true. First of all, the mother supports him, so he has parental support. The law basically doesn’t want to punish the kid for his parents’ fighting.

Second, medically teenagers are given significant latitude in making their own medical decisions. IF a 14 year old is capable of understanding the decision, their own autonomy overrides any sort of “parental rights”. That of course matters more if both parents are opposed, which they aren’t. This is the same reason why parental consent laws for minors seeking abortion are probably unconstitutional (Sask. asked this very question a few years ago, and that was the answer), the answer is basically that yes, even under-age minors have substantial medical autonomy under our current legal framework. In essence, much as the government can’t tell a woman what to do with her body, a parent can’t tell their teenage son/daughter/etc what to do with theirs.

As for the Rebel’s profound lack of respect for this fellow, it’s just plain scummy although not unexpecfed given their need to virtue-signal to their base, who feels a pressing urge to meddle in other’s lives.

The SJW’s are looking for a real war. I am sick of this shit! No way in hell will I ever stop calling biological boys or girls exactly what they are. And yes, I don’t give a tinkers damn about their feeling.

How can the father be held responsible in court for an interview he didn’t even participate in?
commented 2019-06-06 10:54:27 -0400
As I read that letter, it is the father who is being told to remove these videos, not The Rebel Media. And it is the father who is being told action will be taken against him if he fails to comply, not The Rebel Media.

Admittedly, I only saw the part of the letter posted in the news report but it seems the entire thing is being directed at the father and no-one is accusing The Rebel Media of having done anything wrong in reporting on this or “misgendering” the child.

Thanks Keean for you great reporting! Keep up the good work!

This is another reason that a careful vote is necessary this October. We have to put a stop to these abductions of our children. These groups had better not be government funded and therefore we are actually paying these slag lawyers to sue us. Crazy world.

This IS a hill to die on. The next generation will be screwed if they are not allowed to develop naturally, free from the agenda of a mentally twisted community. I feel for those who are confused about their identity but they have a screw loose. They need compassion and help, but they should not be allowed to harm others, especially our impressionable underage children. Parental rights have to trump this power hungry ideology. This is not a game folks. Keep your children close.

Fight? Hell ya.

Had enough yet. The process is the punishment for not saying the words.
Kangaroo court will always find you guilty.
