School trustee: Allowing children to change gender is ‘child abuse’

Barry Neufeld, a trustee for the Chilliwack School District, wrote a Facebook post on Monday slamming the province’s Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) 123 program, which aims to educate children about gender identity, discourage bullying and promote inclusion.

“At the risk of being labelled a bigoted homophobe, I have to say that I support traditional family values and I agree with the College of paediatricians that allowing little children choose to change gender is nothing short of child abuse,” Neufeld wrote in the post.

    At last. A breath of fresh air among all the gender twoddle. 99.99% of children are born into one or two genders ( you know what they are!) Let them grow up that way. Stop confusing them. Stop pandering to the “politically correct” ( and in reality incorrect ) miniscule minority.

      How the hell did something as asinine as “gender fluidity” manage to make its way into mainstream leftism?

      • Barrington Minge

        Most probably because mainstream leftism is for people with nothing better to do then think up ways to annoy normal people. – In between boiling the lentils and protesting about any historical figure who has a statue.

      100% of children are either male or female, there are no other genders and there are no in betweens. boys have a penis, girls have a vagina. even hollywood used to know that

        True. can’t disagree Walter!!!

        There are, I understand, some unfortunates who are born with ambiguous genitalia (sometimes called intersex). It’s a rare condition, about one in 2,000 births. It used to be that parents decided which way surgical correction would go (male or female), but now medical treatment generally advocates waiting until the child is older and can indicate a preference.

    I agree with Neufeld and applaud his courage for speaking out. Meanwhile our crazy ultra-progressive Nutley goes apeshit against the Catholics in AB.

    Oh my God! He speaks out for traditional values! That is not allowed in Sunny Ways Canada. He is obviously a Nazi and must be banned from public life.

    • Editor

      Oh, he will. Even though he’s 100% right.

    That anyone who sticks his head up against the progressivism which has infested our society risks career destruction is the clearest symptom of how cultural Marxism has rotted away the foundations of our society.

    One wonders how long Mr. Neufeld can remain as a school board trustee. Not long, given the power of the establishment media cartel and various pressure groups. Just watch the reaction.

      I predict torture for hate speech by the zealots at a Human Rights Tribunal.

    Unless this p-c delusion in all its forms, and most importantly this abuse of the next generation, is excised from our society, and I mean completely, we really are doomed. We see the corrosive effects on respect for law and order at this point, and yet such a stark and obvious warning is lost on most people.

  • He is normal.

    This is a good thing.

    I’ve written Neufeld to praise what he has said. It took guts for him to do that, and will likely destroy his career. Here’s his e-mail address if any of you want to write to him before he gets so much hate mail, that he has to shut down his account:


    • Lightstream

      Thanks for the email address Jane. I emailed Mr Neufeld and congratulated him for speaking his mind.

      • Jane

        Thanks very much for writing to him Lightstream. We need to let people like Neufeld know that they are on the right track. The left is extremely powerful, and will remain so as long as we remain silent.

    • WildWelshWoman

      Thanks for providing the email address. I, too, emailed Mr. Neufeld and gave him accolades for his honesty. Cheers Jane!

      • Jane

        Wonderful! Thanks so much for writing to him. It’s terrific that you and Lightstream have taken the time to write to him. Thanks again.
