Mother Loses Custody of Daughter Due to Politics

A mother in Chicago lost custody of her daughter for not affirming her “transgender” identity. The child’s father and stepmother succeeded in obtaining full custody by alleging that the 12-year-old girl was not mentally and emotionally safe with her mother.

The Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) produced a video interviewing the mother, Jeanette Cooper, who said she used to have custody of her daughter Sophia for six days and seven nights a week, but now can only communicate with her daughter by sending letters through the US mail.

“People who are imprisoned have more communication with their child than I do,” Jeannette said. “Usually, Child Protective Services has a definition of what it means to be ‘unsafe,’ to be either abused or neglected. There was no evidence that I had done anything like that,” she continued.

Cooper was skeptical when her daughter announced that she was transgender at age 12, having had no prior history of gender dysphoria. Cooper, who shaves part of her head and wears androngynous clothing, says her daughter had more stereotypically feminine behaviors and preferences than she ever did. Cooper told IWF she taught her daughter that it was not necessary to abide by traditional gender stereotypes.

“I don’t think there are any bounds on what it means to be female other than to exist in a female body,” Jeannette said. “There is nothing that I have to do to become female. I simply am. I can dress whatever way I want. I can cut my hair off, grow it long, I can change my clothes. I am still female. Any behavior that I have is female because it is mine.”

IWF reports that Cooper is “speaking out to warn parents how gender ideology has become the latest weapon in parental custody battles, severing one of the most fundamental bonds in life under the guise of protecting children.”

In 2019 during a visit with her father, Sophia never returned to her mother’s house after her father determined that Cooper was not supportive enough of their daughter’s trans identity. A custody battle then ensued between Cooper and her ex-husband and his new wife, a licensed psychotherapist, who Cooper believes played a major role in separating her from her daughter.

The seven-month investigation was conducted by a licensed clinical psychologist and required psychological testing, home visits, and hours of interviews with each parent.

“After that report came out, I thought, surely, this is going to resolve itself. Clearly, there is no finding of abuse or neglect. They didn’t find anything about me that is unsafe,” Jeannette said.

“But the thing that I clearly am not complying with is this concept that good parenting means that you affirm a child’s claim that there is something wrong with their body. I’m not willing to do that. I don’t think that’s good parenting.”

Publicly available court documents of the investigation found no abuse or neglect, only that Cooper needed to “further [her] understanding of an[d] support of the minor child as relates to the minor child’s gender dysphoria.”

“I have an understanding of the concept of a transgender identity,” Cooper told IWF. “I don’t think it’s the concept that they want me to have.”

Jeanette has now missed her daughter’s 13th, 14th, and 15th birthdays. Sophia, who now goes by “Ash” and uses xe/xyr/xyrs pronouns, will be turning 16 in August.

Under the terms of the latest custody agreement following the court’s investigations, Cooper can only see her daughter when okayed by her ex-husband, who has not responded to her repeated requests to visit her. As part of the limited custodial guidelines that Cooper reluctantly agreed to, her daughter cannot medically transition without a court order or her permission. She also retained the ability to contact Sophia by postal mail.

    You really pissed me off with the question yes for Pence and No for Trump for the selection.
    Duck off

  2. I feel sorry for this lady, as this is just a method of one parent gaining custody of their child by going along with this stupid faze. Any child that believes they are a different gender, needs to wait until they are an adult then there is one making any such decision for them. They can abuse their body anyway they wish. I have a niece that has never presented any type of male traits, always seemed very much a girlly girl, however she met a young girl at her school that had ran away from home because she wanted her parents to let her become a boy and the parents tried to get her to wait on making such a decision until she was older, but this girl had friends who were claiming to be transgender to get more attention from their parents, so she decided it was a great idea and then she started her flirting with my niece and telling her that she was also transgender and needed to accept it and to convince her parents that she should stay with her to help her accept her future as a male. She actually played my niece and her husband that this dear friend of her was homeless and needed a place to stay until she and her parents worked through their issues and so they agreed to let the girl stay with them, but it had to be cleared with the girls parents. Then, the next thing my niece and her husband knew, their daughter came out and announced to them that she was gay. They are heart sick but have gone along with their daughter and are trying their best to be supportive. The girl friend stayed with them for a year but fell in love with a boy and now she is back home with her parents and my niece’s daughter is totally confused how her best friend had gone from gay to straight so aquickly.

  3. BEWARE parents, the government is trying to take you out if the picture.
    You can NO LONGER parent your child, the evil in the government has taken over that responsibility.
    Ultimately indoctrinating your child.

  4. This case, which is between a parent and THEIR child, has no business with the court. This is complete overreach by the Democratic Communist Party in there efforts to push their disturbingly warped ideologies.

    We’re talking about a 12- year old child who’s decisions are easily changed by corrupt, sick teachers who indoctrinate children, against the parents will, to bend innocent children. This is about a government that wants to control every aspect of the American peoples lives.

    There is only one way to stop the anti-American damage the Democratic Communist Party has done, which is to vote them all out of political office. Moreover, as moderates and conservatives, we need to also vote out Rhino’s and Republicans who refuse to have a spine to represent the will of the American people who in trusted them to fight on their behalf !!!! VOTE

  5. Step mummy,, a licensed psychotherapist, what do you want to bet the psychotherapist has brain washed an impressionable child into this horror.
    I wish the girl could read about others who transition 20 years about the hell they have lived with. How they regret deciding they would be happier. Now they are having to go through Un transitioning. Their health is compromised, and they cannot undo any surgeries.

    People who consider plastic surgery get more mental health therapy than individuals who consider complete body mutilations.

  6. Transgenderism is a faze, a very harmful and bad faze, With the indoctrination that teachers and administration of schools, Tik Tok owned by CHINA, and other influencers touting how cool it is to be trans, these kids that are the most susceptible are being brought into the insanity. Anyone who believes they can change their gender to the one OTHER gender than they were born, are mentally ill and need a good psychiatrist, NOT the tranny kind. These drugs and surgeries are life-long and many trannies eventually realize what they have done and commit suicide. China uses Tik Tok and other media to promote trans in America, while they teach their kids Math, Science, Reading, etc and truly educate them. China laughs at America. The U.S. teaches LGBTQ insanity and forgets about subjects the kids were sent to school to learn. CPS has done a disservice to this child and her mother, and the dad is nuts.

    • IMHO, that “dad” needs to undergo the castration procedure. (yes, removing his testicals) He isn’t a man anyway

  7. Even many gays, lesbians, and bisexuals oppose transgenderism. My roommate/landlord is gay, but opposes transgenderism; he says that 40% or transgenders have attempted suicide.

    • This is what democrats call a free society. I can not understand why anyone would give away their freedom for some vague promises that can never be delivered upon. If you support this ridiculous ideology you are the problem. The destruction of the nuclear family is the goal and if you knew anything about history you would understand that this comes directly from Marxist doctrine. See Critical Theory See Frankfort School
      Educate yourself or forever be enslaved

  9. Merrick Garland’s son is the supposedly CRT pusher. Parents stand up for(your) kids. This is what an Authoritarian Government does. But we have uneducated young folks and some older folks that do not see the repercussions of these bad policies. Wake-up. Resist the devil and he will flee. These people do not deserve to be our leaders. Weak business skills, weak foreign policies, green nonsense, global warming confusion, overspending, illegal immigration, inflation, Afghanistan mess. They will make it easy to not take responsibility. Blame Trump and use the media, DOJ, FBI to make it look legitimate.

  10. In California gavvy giveaway the store and everything else for free newsom wants to allow prisoners the right to have sex reassignment surgery on the tax payers dime. When I heard this i almost peed and crapped in my pants after i stopped laughing and came down to reality, this idiot’s serious. And this was long before the September 2021 recall that I was sure would get rid of this no good for nothing thieving and lying hypocrite and douchebag. Surely there are thousands if not more thinking Californians not ok with this, and resent their tax dollars paying for sex change surgery on prisoners who have body dismorphia. Hey if people want to do this with their bodies their choice but let them pay the bills, not the taxpayers who won’t get anything but higher and higher taxes for this nonsensical BULLSHIT. If this isn’t the last straw, when are the people of California going to get smart andf get rid of clowns like newsom and this includes all of the other liberals, progressivees or whatever these idiots are calling themselves these days that’re running the quality of life into the groiund and doing a damned fien job of it, sad to say.. Evidently the people of California are slow learners and don’t know when they’re being screwed ad played as fools allowing BS like this or are so blase from smokin’ bad or the wrong kind of weed ( it’s legal here)
