Child’s gender identity sparks legal battle

A judge has ordered the parents of a kindergartener to allow their son to pick his own clothes after his gender identity became the flashpoint of a bitter custody fight.

The child’s parents — whose names are under a publication ban to protect the identity of their son — are separated and disagreed about whether their son, who turns five this month, identified as a girl or a boy.

The Oakville mother believed her son identified as a girl and would often send him to school dressed in stereotypically feminine clothing. The mother also used the pronoun “she” to describe her son.

The father, who lives in Burlington, believes his son was a “normal boy” who was being forced to act like a girl by his mother. He dressed his son like a boy, even holding a bonfire to burn his son’s girl clothes (at the child’s request, he contends).

  • The mother will pat herself on the back when her son makes the talk-show circuit one day.

    The mother should be charged with child abuse and have custody denied.

    But this is not a sane world, this is a crooked liberal shit-bag world

    • I agree.

      The “crooked liberal shit-bag world” of progressive loons makes me want to puke.

    • She should be.

    “Dr. Joey Bonifacio, an expert in gender identity…”
    Sick Kids says “gender dysphoria is relatively rare, but increased awareness and acceptance has led more teens to identify as transgender.”
    So a counter-evolutionary societal illness, once “endangered”, is making an epic comeback, thanks to experts like Dr. Joey?

    One thing is sure: We can look forward to more cases like this.

    Poor kid. Mom projecting her mental illness on the boy.

    • It sure seems that way.

        Munchausen by proxy?

          That is precisely what I was thinking.

    Global thermonuclear war is looking better and better.
    I think that the survivors in the radioactive bombed out rubble will have a healthier society than this.

    In my humble opinion both parents are trying to push the gender identity agenda through judicial decision. Probably they are paid by the homosexual lobby to get a court decision that will say that it is a child right to choose his/her gender. .

    • FactsWillOut

      Given the current state of affairs, the court will decide he is in fact a girl.

      • john700

        Not only that, but it would create the precedent and all the kids would get to choose their gender. But we should be tolerant, shouldn’t we?

      Based on the story it would be the mother not both parents. Otherwise I suspect you are correct about big queer being behind it.

      • john700

        No, it’s him too, but he pretends otherwise just to get to court.

        • Alain

          I stand corrected. Thanks.

    With reports of Mothers of this type I am starting to understand the term “BatShit Crazy”

    If you believe your son is a girl, you are criminally insane and belong in a cage under heavy sedation.

    In Canada it is common for women to hypersexualize children in divorce proceedings. This is done by bathing naked with them, exposing them to a pedophile relative, uncle or grandpa, or the next uncle dad that is the sex partner of the mother. This woman has taken a rather more direct attack on the child and the father. My opinion is that the judge has decided that this child is the therapy child for the mother and has no right to a stable household or life. This is the state of family law in Ontario, never get married, never have children.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Or simply avoid any romantic/sexual/relationship intimacy with Canadian women at all costs. My sons seem to be ahead of the curve on this file…

  • Justin St.Denis

    The wife is a child abuser and also batshit crazy. This “case” ain’t rocket science to any but those in the legal profession and the judiciary. I feel genuine pity for the child in question. I really sympathize with the father, who likely knows the deck is stacked against him now that the inmates run the asylum.

    Sometimes, I wish I was a tree…………………..

  • I am amazed that people nowadays still have kids. I would certainly hesitate, given the sexual identity problems that are being imposed on them by the current weird generation.
