Parental rights are at the top of my list of liberties to protect because they’re at the top of the radical left’s list of liberties to attack. “Progressives” truly believe public school teachers and government-provided indoctrination services should be raising our children with parents doing little more than supplying the money necessary to keep the brainwashing flowing.
I recently got into a debate with a fellow conservative about various state laws that are popping up across the nation banning “gender affirming care” for children. For those who are unfamiliar, “gender affirming care” is the woke way of describing hormone poisoning and genital mutilation to permanently change the sex of a child.

The conservative I was debating, who I generally respect, was lambasting me for condemning the actions of states like California while supporting the “similar” actions of states like Florida. The former will take children away from their parents if they do not allow their children to be permanently deformed. The latter will take children away from parents who allow it.
“You can’t have it both ways, Rucker,” my conservative friend told me. “Either parents have rights over their children’s gender or they don’t.”
It was disappointing to be getting a strawman argument from a fellow conservative, but I’m glad it happened. It alerted me that some things that are black and white to me aren’t as clear to others who are otherwise likeminded.
I’ll keep my argument simple. Parental rights do not supersede the physical health of the child. “Gender-affirming care” is the practice of permanently deforming a child. Therefore, it is child abuse. This is backed by the plethora of evidence showing later-life regret from “transitioned” children, many of whom end up with major mental disorders. Some commit suicide, though you’d have a hard time finding corporate media stories telling their tragic tales.
Comparing California and Florida laws through the lens of parental rights is disingenuous, especially for a conservative. California endorses child abuse. Florida protects children from child abuse. I see no contradiction in condemning one and endorsing the other.

Let’s look at it with a different hypothetical. Let’s say there’s a movement that promotes hand-shifting. Right-handed people who want to be left-handed because they believe they were born in the wrong bodies decide to surgically remove their right hand and replace it with a prosthetic.
If an adult wants to do it, that’s on them. If they do it to their child, it’s child abuse. Period.
I’m all-in for parental rights. Those rights do not empower parents to have genital mutilation performed on their kids, millions of whom were confused about sexuality BEFORE the recent push for trans-supremacy. Now that we live in a society that embraces brainwashing children into thinking they’re in the wrong bodies, the “gender affirming care” industry is making a killing off woke parents. They are deforming their children permanently and must be stopped.

Do you really have tpo ask the question?
Child abuse by any other name is still child abuse. How long before the pedos finally achieve their goal of legalizing pedophilia? This ought to turn out swell for these sick parents, they will be able to trick their kids out to the highest pedo bidder $$$,$$$.$$
I can see it now, all the sicko pedos lined up down the sidewalk drooling all over themselves just waiting their turn.
Then: Child Abuse was PROscribed by law.
Now: Child Abuse is PREscribed by law.
One might as easily argue that parents have total control over a child’s diet – and thus can choose to starve the child. That is as absurd, and as abusive, as the assertion that parents may mutilate and/or poison a child so long as it is theirs. To oppose this is not to undermine parental authority, but to affirm natural, nurturing parental authority, which the left is trying to replace with perversion and destruction.
The authoritarianism is entirely on the side of the fascists in this public-private (i.e., fascist, i.e., corporatist, i.e., stakeholder) desecration of childhood: for children are incapable of making rational, ethical choices about such things. To accomplish this obscenity, these leftists must necessarily undermine, then eliminate, natural (vs. unnatural, artificial, corrupted) parental authority.
People generally do not understand that we have been living under fascism for many decades: Medical Boards and Bar Associations are unelected and unaccountable, yet they wield de facto governmental authority over practitioners and recipients alike. Like the universities and seminaries, these modern versions of medieval guilds were long ago infiltrated and subverted in the Long March Through the Institutions by the Frankfurt School (e.g., Antonio Gramsci and Herbert Marcuse). Doctors and lawyers are some of the most potent and wicked activists responsible for these horrors.
As for the schools and faculty, the Frankfurt School, which has effectively annexed all other schools, was aided enormously by two Democrats: John Kennedy and his Federalized collective bargaining (Executive Order 10988, 17 January 1962), and Jimmy Carter and his Federalized public schooling (Department of Education Organization Act, 17 October 1979). Those have combined to make public schools enemy encampments in every state, no matter how otherwise conservative.
It absolutely is authoritarian to take children away from parents for ANY other reason than direct abuse.
You just do NOT want to go there. You lose the high ground if you stoop to the level of the fascist left.
If encouraging, funding, and permitting mutilation is not child abuse,
the term has no meaning. Words have no meaning. Parents have rights
but they end when they attempt to remove perfectly healthy organs and
pump their children full of massive amounts of artificial hormones for
the rest of their lives. When they allow their children to destroy their
bodies now and souls later. When they advocate for a lifestyle known
to cause almost half (41%) to attempt suicide. There is NO better example
of DIRECT ABUSE on earth than the kind you defend and support, Tom.
No: I just DO want to go there – and it is NOT authoritarian: It is the exercising of natural, healthful, parental authority over young lives under parental stewardship. “Gender-Affirming Care” IS “direct abuse”!
You have been successfully indoctrinated into Cultural Marxist ideology: equality of outcome, and situational ethics. Natural Law no longer exists to people like you; you have already abdicated the “high ground”.
