The Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that a 14-year-old girl receive testosterone injections without parental consent.  The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence.  The young girl was encouraged by her school counselor to identify as a boy while in seventh grade and a doctor decided that she should begin taking testosterone injections at the age of 13.  Her father suspected that mental health issues could the cause than the effect of his daughter’s gender dysphoria and he wanted her to wait until she was older to begin irreversible hormone treatment.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that a 14-year-old girl receive testosterone injections without parental consent. The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence.

As previously reported, Maxine* was encouraged by her school counselor in BC’s Delta School District to identify as a boy while in seventh grade. When Maxine was 13 years old, Dr. Brenden Hursh and his colleagues at BC Children’s Hospital decided that Maxine should begin taking testosterone injections in order to develop a more masculine appearance.

Although Maxine’s mother was ultimately willing to support hormone injections, her father Clark* was concerned about the permanent ramifications of cross-sex hormones. Suspecting that his daughter’s mental health issues might be more the cause than the effect of her gender dysphoria, he ultimately decided that it would be better for her to wait until she was older before she embarked on any irreversible course of treatment.

At that point, Hursh informed Clark that he would begin testosterone injections on the basis of Maxine’s consent alone, claiming that he had a right to do so under the BC Infants Act. Clark promptly sought an injunction to prevent this. On Wednesday, however, a judge deemed Maxine “exclusively entitled to consent to medical treatment for gender dysphoria,” regardless of the opinions of either of her parents.

Further, the court stated that “Attempting to persuade [Maxine] to abandon treatment for gender dysphoria; addressing [Maxine] by his birth name; referring to [Maxine] as a girl or with female pronouns whether to him directly or to third parties; shall be considered to be family violence under s. 38 of the Family Law Act.”

Biden’s ‘Kids in Cages’ Prove Hypocrisy on Immigration

March 1, 2021 NY Post and Breitbart 0

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris savaged President Trump for keeping “kids in cages.” But now they’re doing the same thing by housing 700 migrant teens in some of the very same facilities they decried. Biden is ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for Central American asylum seekers, which took pressure off the border.

This is unbelievable. So now, the State Nursery who raises YOUR children can brainwash them from a young age, persuade them to change their gender,and put the parents in jail for not just objecting to the sex-change, but for CALLING THE CHILD BY HER BIRTH NAME!!! Un f’in believable! The looonies are running the asylum. Of course the ultimate agenda is a genderless human, raised in incubated test tubes by The State, as predicted in Huxley’s BRAVE NEW WORLD. Subsisting on a diet of Soylent Green for the body and Soma for the head.
