I can assure you both, as the mother of this child, that The Gavel Project is legit. I am a client and intend to fight a society that took my child away from me for political reasons. And definitely not in her best interest. I thank God that The Gavel Project cares and agreed to take on this huge issue. It’s been a heartbreaking journey... tragic.

Hello Emily

I looked up the Gavel Project and I share your concerns. Most of its cases seem concerned with anti-vax and similar Covid matters.

Here in the UK an international law firm called Pogust Woodhead is appealing to detransitioned patients who were harmed by the Gender ID Service at the Tavistock Clinic in London. They are planning a Class Action lawsuit: https://tavistockclaimlawyers.com/

There must be lawyers in the US who would take on a group of parents of deluded children wrongly "affirmed" by State authorities.

The PITT platform is exactly the right place for such a campaign to start and for the search for a suitable lawyer to work across all States to be found and briefed. Or am I being over-optimistic?

I have been following this story and I would like to get this in front of everyone I know to help with crowdfunding. But I want to get some verification of the legal side of this first. I looked up the Gavel Project and it seems legitimate. But how do I get independent verification of this group’s credibility and actions?

The possibility of setting precedent that allows courts to classify “misgendering” as parental abuse will galvanize every parent who hears of this. I want to help stop this. But I also want to be able to say, yes I’ve done due diligence, this is for real, and I don’t know how to do that. Help?

Judge Robert Kershaw, Circuit Court of Maryland, is up for re-election in 2023. A concerted effort to deny him re-election needs to be made. If this effort is made, and succeeds, it will send a message to other judges who are anti-family.

This sounds like a story that would be on the "Twilight Zone"!

No kidding! Exactly how I still feel! It’s all so crazy! And sad. So so sad.

Unbelievably tragic! Ms. Khan, Mr. Via, and Ms. Olsen are disgustingly woke liars! So Ms. Khan thinks that doing dishes and not having your preferred pronoun is abusive is nuts! So doing chores is abuse; I made the family bread, did the dishes, vacuumed and never once felt abused; words fail me! Grown adults lying through their teeth out to destroy two loving parents; if you can't say 'no' to your kids or 'wait till you're an adult' then what is the point of having children if you cannot raise them the way you see fit. I said 'no' or 'you're two young' to my two boys and yes, they did chores but then woke transgenderism wasn't around back in the 80s. I pray for transgenderism to become a black blot in history sooner than later, before more lives of children and teens are ruined for life.

Fantastic and important work! I can't help fund, but I can promote their tweets (yes, I know it's pathetic; but you never know who might see and have cash) if they'll tweet about the case.

I worked in the abuse and neglect system for a number of years. To see the system bastardized in this manner by activist counselors, teachers, attorneys and judges enrages me. The real abuse here is not by the parents. It is the sex trafficking and harms imposed upon this child while on the streets and then in state custody. These are the outcomes I feared would start happening years ago. Thank you for helping this family.

Thank you, Ryan! I will share and keep sharing until we save all our children! What is happening is beyond belief and wrong on every level. Please keep up the good fight for our children's lives.

Medical kidnap has been done forever. The war against the children will unite humanity if we let it. There are so many people out there who have had their children stolen in one way or another.

Ted Gunderson can tell you all about it. It isn't directly trans related, but if you love children and you care about parental rights, everyone should listen to him.

Thanks for the write up, OP.

Please everyone look into medical kidnapping.

We parents are in a war against evil. I am not legally entitled to refer to my daughter as “her” as she is legally male. My conscience does not allow me to refer to her as him. So I refer to her as “my youngest child”. Just takes a little longer to say than “her”. We are being bullied into changing our language. This is a loss of freedom of speech.

Here is how to fight critical race theory and the transgender ideology in schools. Complain to state agencies that investigate discrimination (yes, sex and sex orientation discrimination are covered). Check out my podcast for more info. https://justingaffneysamuels.substack.com/p/how-to-complain-to-state-agencies?sd=pf

Wish your verbal messages could be printed.

I wrote my messages out as an article. I linked to all the state agencies one can complain to, as well as the US Department of Education Office of Civil Rights. Read my article here and if you have questions please leave on my article and I will answer them. https://justingaffneysamuels.substack.com/p/filing-complaint-against-groomers?sd=pf
