Father fights to prevent daughter, diagnosed as suffering gender dysphoria, being given puberty-blocking drug Lupron

RINCE GEORGE — The British Columbia Supreme Court has stepped in to allow an 11-year-old child diagnosed with gender dysphoria to be represented in a parental dispute over medical treatment.

The child, identified only as J.K. in court documents, was born female and is transitioning to become male, a treatment that includes taking a puberty-blocking drug called Lupron.

J.K. and his mother both asked the court to appoint a litigation guardian to represent the child after J.K.’s father launched legal action to try to stop the Lupron treatment.

Court documents show J.K.’s mother has been supportive of his transition but the father argues that the treatment was undertaken without his consent and the child has not been adequately assessed by experts.

    Performing medical experiments to turn prepubescent children into the opposite sex is worthy of Doctor Mengele. And yet here it is, in Canada in 2016.

      We can argue day and dark about being gay, whether people are born that way or it’s learned or whatever. But making life-altering decisions about their sexuality before they hit puberty is about force-feeding an agenda.

    • That is an apt analogy.

      They done this since the seventies and the eighties with often tragic results.

      I remember this kid because he’s in my age group.

    The judge and mother are engaging in violent child abuse.

    • I agree.

      And if the “treatment” proceeds and this child grows up to be a confused, suicidal adult…it will be the dad’s fault.

    Gender dysphoria has nothing to do with homosexuality. What I’d like to know is how the “professionals” tell the difference between a eleven year old tomboy and a kid with dysphoria.

    • Alain

      Simple answer is that they cannot tell the difference.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        They can tell the difference they just want test subjects.

    The judge will rule the dad is a bigot and decide to terminate his parental rights so the treatment proceeds and the dad no longer can visit with his child.

    The very fact that this “treatment” involves administering a drug that blocks puberty just shows how depraved the whole thing is. This pseudo-scientific transgenderism bullshit cannot be debunked fast enough, and the sooner someone steps up to the plate and exposes it for the fraud that it is, the better.

  • Please study this, there will be a quiz later.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      Well, this clears everything up.

  • FactsWillOut

    The kid’s gender is not fully determined until after puberty.
    Messing with pre-pubescent kids endocrine system is abuse, no matter how the kid feels.

      If he is competent enough to make this decision he is competent enough to buy booze, buy smokes, buy a house,and get married but wait the law thinks he is not competent enough to do any of these things. so why in the hell would they think he is competent enough to make this decision.

      Oh and his mother deserves a damn good knuckle slap in the back of the head and that’s just for starters

      • Kathy Prendergast

        “He” is not even a he; the child in question is a girl, not a boy. I hate the way the media is now reflexively using the politically correct “gender pronouns” even in cases where the subject is not an adult but a confused child. The mother is probably a ‘gender activist” herself; they usually are in these cases, consciously using their children to fight their battles for them. If she had a son he would probably be “transitioning” to become female right now.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    If I or any of my sisters has told our parents when we were kids, “I want to be a boy!” they probably would have given the very sensible response of, “well, you can’t be, because you were born a girl”. I guess that would considered child abuse now.
