“Wherein they think it strange, that you run not with them into the same confusion of riotousness, speaking evil of you .”  1 Peter 4:4

Thank you for this well written piece! PITT and all the parents and people who have spoken out saved my son's life. We were one of those horrific tales of woe; going to a gender therapist thinking he'd do a deep dive into my son's issues and instead the therapist pushed the agenda of affirmative care with puberty blockers and told me to "get on board." I'm still shaken by the ordeal. Like you and other's we know our kids... my son is gay and feels much shame and confusion on how to fit in and navigate. We found a new therapist after MUCH vetting, who is amazing and my son is lighter and realizes trans is not the answer, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I wasn't still afraid of gender ideology and social contagion. I'm not good with words like so many of you amazing contributors, but I am behind all of you and will speak up whenever I can to schools, community, friends, etc.

An excellent article. It's a battle we have to win! Family life and the lives of our children and grandchildren are paying the price.

Keep pushing, keep shouting, keep refusing, do not give up, we can do this because we are Parents and we are the reason human beings exist. No one is calling the shots for our children even if they are down that rabbit hole we are either here to fish them out or save other’s who can be saved.

Yes! It’s truly happening Gender Ideology is unravelling and gaining momentum and we have made it so! As the Mandalorian says “This is the Way!”and who does he protect? “The Child”.

Excellent post, thank you for sharing. You have pointed out some of my pet peeves about the whole topic. As you said, it used to be totally unacceptable for a person to keep secrets with a child and from that child's parents. It was considered predatory. Now, thanks to the trans ideology, it's perfectly acceptable with anyone EXCEPT your parents! Imagine the apoplectic response if schools were converting children to Christianity and baptising them without their knowledge! At least the children wouldn't be physically maimed for the rest of their lives.

The state I live in just had to pass a Parental Rights Bill, due to this very subject. It gives parents the legal right to know what is happening in their minor child's school and in their healthcare. I cannot fathom having to pass a bill to guarantee this. It's ludicrous. Our state also does not have to inform the parents of a minor child their location if they have run away to a state sponsored shelter, and can receive any "gender affirming care" without parental consent or knowledge. Needless to say it is a blue state.

Good for you for following up on this candidate and caring more than a lot of others would. It's parents and concerned people like you and so many here that make it their business to know the facts and not blindly follow that will bring an end to this madness. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

I know you're going to think "Yeah, easy for you to say!" but my advice is to just say NO to the whole damned thing. The whole rotten ball of wax, say NO to all of it. No preferred pronouns, no non-binary nonsense, no to boys in girls sports (encourage your daughters to sit out in protest if possible), no to "sex is a spectrum". It's all BAD!! They will say you need to "be nice" or "show respect" but then if you do, they've started controlling what you say, and then they've got you fearing saying something wrong. I personally barely have to deal with this literal nonsense, so yeah, it's easy for me to say. But I'm have a ton of sympathy for everyone that has to deal with this cult-like behavior and my advice is to say NO early and often. Once they realize you can't be controlled, they will give up trying. Some people may say that you're being "horrible" (like they have about me) but they'll quickly stop trying to pull this BS with you also.

Once celebrities and politician’s kids start to detransition, their attitudes will change pretty quick.

Celebrities transition (or otherwise sacrifice) their own kids for membership in the Cult. Politicians? Maybe....

Stop saying TRAs! They have no problem calling you a TERF. They have no problem acting nasty and mean and loud and violent.

They’re RATs. Call them RATs. This is about child abuse.

Just heard someone who studied education affirm the truth of your statement, “It used to be sketchy and illegal for adults to collude with children, but now it’s just the policy of the Department of Education.” So crazy! Thankfully, more and more people are choosing educational options that protect their children from this insanity, but praying for those for whom it is too late and/or not possible.

The main difference between liberals and conservatives is that liberals tend to be more willing to cut family ties over ideologies. At least that has been my personal experience. And I’m not saying that conservatives have been the good guys in fighting the trans cult.

In the past, conservative white and black parents were hostile and rejecting towards their children if they dated someone from the other race. Many people who came out as gay were permanently disowned or disinherited by their conservative parents. The parents' behavior was sometimes justified by religion but more often there was the attitude that no justification was needed, so certain were these WWII and earlier folks that their life choices were "The Way." I think it remains true today, that ideologues do not see themselves as such, rather they believe their thought constructs are The Truth.
