[Ed. – Parents branded as child abusers.]
An Australian magistrate ordered that a gender-confused teenage girl be removed from her home after the magistrate called the parents’ refusal to allow her to ‘transition’ into a boy “abusive.”
Police removed the 15-year old from her home after the state children’s court magistrate cited in an October protection order the girl’s risk of self-harm. The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, allegedly discussed suicide in online chatrooms.
The parents, who also cannot be named, objected to what they described as bullying by authorities and are in the process of appealing the decision. They deny any abuse of their daughter.
“(The authorities say) we will not allow her to change gender, so it’s dangerous for her to come back to our house because we will mentally abuse her — they want us to consent to testosterone treatment,” the father told The Australian in a Nov. 28 report.
