As The Daily Wire reported this afternoon, the judge in the James Younger case has effectively nullified the jury verdict by giving the father joint conservatorship over his son, which includes a say in the boy’s “transition.” This would seem to be the best possible outcome we could have hoped for in a messy and tragic situation. It will be up to the father to protect James from here on out. Now, at least, he might have some ability to do that. We can’t know for sure, but it seems likely that the outcry from the public over the last week had a hand in bringing about this decision.
But the public cannot be mobilized every time a child’s gender confusion is encouraged and amplified by abusive parents. As more and more minors follow the trend of identifying as “transgender,” we cannot protect them all from being prescribed “puberty blocker” drugs, which are, as I have written previously, the same drugs used to castrate sex offenders. This is why Republicans in Congress must step in.
There is no situation where it could ever be morally, ethically, medically, or scientifically justified to give a physically healthy child drugs suppressing his normal development simply because he is confused about his biological identity. It is an outrage that medical practitioners engage in this kind of barbarity, and abominable that parents would allow or request it, but that is where we are. Republicans can put a stop to it and should. A bill banning the chemical castration of children would be massively popular everywhere and among everyone, with the exception of the craziest loons way out on the left wing fringes. If Democrats in the House want to appease that deranged mob by explicitly coming out in favor of poisoning and deforming pre-pubescent children with medically unnecessary hormone drugs, let them do it and sign their own political death warrant in the process.
The radical far Left has gotten away with imposing its superstitious, anti-scientific, anti-child, anti-woman theories of gender on the public because the people who know better have been, for various pathetic reasons, reluctant to speak out against it. I get the sense that this self-imposed silence on the part of the sane crowd with regards to the gender issue is finally ending. The Left’s vision of sex and gender is incoherent, self-contradicting, and harmful. Most people can see that well enough, whether they are willing to say it out loud or not. A Republican legislative broadside against this madness is sure to be a winner, politically. It’s also just the right thing to do. So get it done, Republicans.
