Can we keep the political leanings out of this? It’s so reductive and such utter crap.

I’m very left wing - my country’s left Party is far too centrist for me and has so far been all for affirmation and TWAW. I wouldn’t vote for a conservative candidate ever. Ever.

If you're a born Lesbian, there is no other option sexually. That would be a bisexual. Women who "take a dip in the lady pond" are not Lesbians.

I haven’t discussed my child with any friend or relatives. I’m just terrified of what will happen.

I homeschooled my daughter (secular; there's a large community here) and it wasn't enough; I didn't know the dangers of (1) social media and (2) progressive kids until it was too late. And her homeschool PE coach knew she was claiming to be trans before I did. I caught their emails back and forth.

It ruined any respect I had for him. And there was no excuse. He is a certified teacher, therefore a mandated reporter; if he'd truly been afraid I would harm my daughter for knowing about her issues, he should have contacted the county. Instead, he encouraged her to keep secrets. In a fully conservative state, I could have had his head on a platter. Unfortunately, we're swing. And I never in a million years expected to say that. I'm an old-school leftist. I don't know who the hell any of these idiots are anymore. Not leftist, for sure. They are rubberstamping oppression and calling it liberation.

Your point needs to be amplified: IF SCHOOL PERSONNEL suspect parents are abusive & therefore unsafe for their children, then the schools NEED to report to CPS. This near nation-wide policy of schools encouraging kids to keep secrets, to confide in school staff & not in their own parents is deeply sick & destructive. I've experienced it first hand. Those who think adults other than the parents are more concerned for the health & well being of children are woefully misguided. No one else in the world will take care of a child like a parent will. No one. These people who coach kids to keep secrets & lie are groomers. Whether they are on the internet or in schools or doctors offices, they need to outed & prosecuted.

I like that you are still able to occasionally see the funny side (because, let's face it, if it wasn't so sad it would be hilarious. Furries indeed!) I used to have the occasional giggle imaging my son's huge feet in high heels.

Yes. There is.

When I tell people that my son receives his counsel, meds, and all support from his university they are STUNNED (as we were). When I tell them this local university was top in the nation for their transgender building (an entire center) they are stunned. We had no idea when he went there.. why would we research that? The brainwashing group is in his face and at his fingertips daily. I tell as many people as I can. Hopefully it will save one of their children.

Sadly, nothing new under the sun. Yes, children have always been victims of this evil world....

They are not victims of the world. The world is their literal source and life-support system. They are victims of people, and when you blame people's actions on a nebulously-defined "world" you are trying to absolve yourself of responsibility toward a wrongdoing you are witnessing.

I’m so sorry you’ve had to experience this.

It’s so hard to open up about what we go through, this nightmare. To learn those you looked to for support & the ability to vent, have the inability to keep your information confidential & to try to appreciate your position is heart wrenching.

I’ve reached out to a local support group consisting of parents & families dealing with these issues. I’m awaiting a connection. I’ve done so because I’ve experienced similar feedback to yours.

Maybe you want to try the same.

This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to deal with & function through. If you asked me years ago what trials I thought I may have to deal with as a parent, I would have never imagined it would be this. It was the furthest thing from my mind.

I pray you find a trustworthy confidant.

I’m willing to listen, if you need to vent.

Please think about the support group.

I’ll let you know when I hear back from my contact, if you’re interested. Maybe she can connect you with one in your area.🕊️❤️🙏

Talk about being deluded. Many of the gay kids wind up transitioning because of religious homophobic parents. Gay is born. To not love, support and accept a child who is gay is against everything you preach and YOU are telling your "God" he made a mistake.

Sheer nonsense. Biologists have never found a single gene that leads to homosexuality. And they have been looking for decades.

Expand full comment

There isn't a single gene that leads to maleness or femaleness, either. There are multiple genes across lots of chromosomes. When you don't know what on earth you're talking about, don't accuse others of "nonsense."

I mean, the author of this piece has a lesbian (or at least bisexual) daughter. Read the damn room.

The Left's attraction to one side and one side only in any debate is largely why they have found themselves in this pickle.

Of course there is not a single gene that leads to males and females. There is an entire karyotype. It includes two distinct chromosomes the X and the Y. On each chromosome there are distinct genes that support the functions of the individual carriers, and those would be either male or female. And by the way. Regardless of my university degree, I didn't need higher education to learn this. At least at one time, it was taught in high-school biology. Around the time I was 16 or 17.

That "born this way" stuff is true sometimes, and other times it is not. There is NO evidence for or against that contention of "born this way".

Expand full comment

Being born gay is true 100 percent of the time.

Where did you get 100%? Have you not heard of "lesbian until graduation" and "political lesbianism"?

Expand full comment

False statement. There are a LOT of cases in which people make choices.

There is no valid proof of this assertion.

Expand full comment

It looks like they're "making choices" because they are bisexual, George.

God damn. I shouldn't have to explain this to a literate adult.

Expand full comment

Bisexual is a big fake category. Sex researchers do not believe in bisexuals. Bisexuals always have a preference. It's not a real thing.

A lot of "gay/lesbian" is behavior. They are open. Gay behavior is just a choice.

Nope, not "born that way". CHOOSE that way.

Scientific documentation, please.

An explanation of why anyone would want to be gay with people like you existing in this world, please.

I don't know why women willfully enter BDSM relationships either. I don't understand at all what arouses them about pain. I don't understand men who like to be suffocated, or humiliated. I don't understand the sexual attraction to children or animals. Just because I don't understand it does not follow that I have to tolerate it, or view it as either legal or moral.

Dysphoria is a genuine mental condition. It is in the DSM. The Trans Ideology claim that it is being born in the wrong body is a tool for convincing young people to transition.

Expand full comment

Yes, it's in the DSM. And the question is "why is it NOT a delusion"? The answer is that trannie pressure groups gained the upper hand in the UNSCIENTIFIC AND PURELY POLITICAL ACTION of DSM classification. The DSM is not written by god himself. It is written by teams of "scientists". In the case of gender dysphoria, it was a tainted and activist influenced process.

actually I think it is a stretch to call PSYCHIATRISTS "scientists".

Psychiatry is not a highly scientific field. Or, if one insists on calling it scientific, one must acknowledge that it is a miserably ineffective & unsuccessful science.

Expand full comment

That's basically what I said. The delusion is that they are born in the wrong body and transitioning is the magical cure.

OK, good, then we agree. I'm drinking zinfandel. Just put the grandbaby to bed.

Good for you. It can be lonely being sane. I hope your daughter desists and hope the same for my son. I refuse to use pronouns or call him by his chosen name. It's lying to him and I just can't do it. Stay strong.💪
