If you thought the LGBT agenda was just going to stop at gay adoption, gay marriage, and multi-gender restrooms, think again. When progressives get their teeth into progress, they don’t stop until…well, actually there’s no end to that sentence. They don’t stop, period. That’s the whole point. There is no “good enough” in the mind of a liberal. There is always something more. More “acceptance.” More “equality.” More government. By the time they’re done getting everything they want, Christians and conservatives will be locked up in labor camps…and possibly have the better of the situation, considering what the left is going to do to the rest of the country.
Now we don’t really expect all of that to happen, but damn if it doesn’t seem like we’re losing control of this country in a hurry. Just take this situation unfolding in Ohio. The parents of a 17-year-old girl (who thinks she’s a boy) have lost custody of their daughter because they do not support letting her get transgender hormones and will not call her by her chosen male name.
“The grandparents, rather than the parents, will be the ones to help make medical decisions for the child going forward,” reports CNN. “But before any hormone treatment is allowed, the court ordered, the teen should be evaluated by a psychologist who is not affiliated with the current facility where he is receiving treatment, on ‘the issue of consistency in the child’s gender presentation, and feelings of non-conformity.'”
Just stop and think about this for a minute. An Ohio court has decided that since the child’s parents are NOT open to letting their underage daughter get hormone therapy that will “turn her into a boy,” and the grandparents ARE open to such therapy…that the grandparents are the ones better suited to care for the child and make medical decisions for her. Like…what? How far from the strong bedrock of reality have we strayed that any judge anywhere in the country could make such a ruling? It is nothing less than bone-chilling.
In her ruling, the judge called on the state legislature to pass laws that would essentially allow teens to make these decisions on their own.
“What is clear from the testimony presented in this case and the increasing worldwide interest in transgender care is that there is certainly a reasonable expectation that circumstances similar to the one at bar are likely to repeat themselves,” wrote the judge. “That type of legislation would give a voice and a pathway to youth similarly situated as (the teen) without attributing fault to the parents and involving them in protracted litigation which can and does destroy a family unit.”
We don’t doubt for a moment that such legislation is coming. In fact, we’ve already seen the first signs of it in the Pacific Northwest, if not Ohio. And thus, we’ll see hundreds if not thousands of teenagers rushing to make life-altering decisions that can never be fully reversed – decisions that correlate strongly with long-term mental illness, depression, and suicide.
Nice work, progressives. You’ve really done it this time.
