Fox News highlighted the story Friday of a biological girl whose family encouraged her to identify as a boy, as part of its “America Together: LGBTQ+ Pride Month” series.

The video would be absolute despicable insane lunacy if I saw it on CNN or MSNBC.  

To see it on Fox News is a complete betrayal of anything remotely resembling conservatism or decency.

Every element of this video is propagandistic, dangerous garbage. The report states that this biologically female child was choosing her gender before she could speak

That is madness.

The report further states that Ryland’s parents began social transition at the age of five. 

This is child abuse. The vast majority of children who display signs of gender dysphoria desist over time.

The report is absolute, horrifying propaganda. 

We have Mom citing her “Christian faith” to justify the perversion of biological identity. 

We have the radical gender theory activist Trevor Project stats claiming that childhood transition is the only way to prevent suicide.

“I’d rather have a living son than a dead daughter” is, again, propagandistic sloganeering. There is no credible evidence that transition alleviates suicidal ideation among children who identify as LGBTQ+.

We have got Dad talking about “living authentically” – by hormonally transitioning a biologically female child, a transition that if continued will result in biological sterilization and/or breast- and genital-mutilating surgery.

This family became famous in 2014 – when Ryland, now 14, was six years old. Mom wrote a book about her own heroism. 

This is not about the children. This is about pushing a gender theory that victimizes small children.

And this is happening on Fox News, where the family is praised for its “extraordinary courage” in the face of the “politicization” of transgender issues.

“People are afraid of what they do not understand,” the reporter says.

But we do understand the agenda. We understand that this is propaganda on behalf of the destruction of children. And it is vile.

Fox News is too important to conservatives to be weaponized on behalf of the most radical Leftist propaganda imaginable – propaganda that aims directly at the mental and physical health of children. The company should terminate whoever is responsible for this agitprop abomination.
