01:36
big stack of his articles
01:38
are listed for your enjoyment goes like
01:40
this
01:42
hard to believe but we have come to the
01:45
point where parents have to question if
01:46
our schools and medical systems are a
01:48
net positive
01:49
in our children’s lives or perhaps even
01:51
worse a danger to our children
01:54
in canada one father has been put
01:57
through
01:57
a living hell by the school and court
02:00
systems
02:01
and his daughter is paying a serious
02:04
price
02:05
the canadian father is clearly a decent
02:07
man non-political and genuinely
02:09
concerned with the well-being of his
02:10
daughter with no preconceived notions
02:13
the problem began when his daughter was
02:16
only 12 years old and having some
02:18
problems in school based on some mental
02:19
health issues
02:21
they turn to the school counselor for
02:22
help as many of us would naturally be
02:24
inclined to do
02:25
the school counselor immediately
02:27
identified the daughter as
02:29
transgender while still only 12 years
02:31
old
02:32
the school helped her pick out a male
02:34
name and began treating her as a boy
02:36
without
02:37
informing her father according to the
02:40
father when he found out he wasn’t sure
02:42
what to think or do
02:43
as would be natural for most any parent
02:45
but he was
02:46
accepting of her exploration of her
02:48
gender
02:49
the school recommended that his daughter
02:51
see psychologist and lgbt author
02:55
dr wallace wong very quickly dr
02:59
wong concluded the child had gender
03:01
dysphoria
03:02
and recommended she began taking
03:04
cross-sex hormones
03:06
while she was still only 13 years old to
03:09
his credit
03:10
doctor wong works with his local orphan
03:12
and foster care system although
03:14
according to press reporting he’s come
03:15
under criticism
03:16
for potentially diagnosing as high as 20
03:19
percent of those children
03:21
with some form of gender dysphoria
03:24
the family was referred to hospital and
03:26
supplied with disclosures by medical
03:28
personnel which explained
03:29
that if his daughter received the
03:31
injections her bones would stop
03:33
growing which would create serious
03:35
long-term health problems
03:37
her brain would stop developing and she
03:40
will be permanently
03:41
sterilized among other issues both real
03:44
and potential
03:46
specifically the disclosure added that
03:49
no one knows all of the long-term health
03:51
implications because the procedures are
03:53
so new
03:54
the father thought his daughter’s
03:56
history of mental health issues was
03:58
a more likely cause of any problems than
04:00
gender dysphoria
04:01
and refuse to grant permission for
04:02
hormone treatments
04:04
he concluded it was more responsible for
04:06
his daughter to be older
04:07
before making health decisions that are
04:09
irreversible such as being sterilized
04:13
shortly after the daughter’s fourteenth
04:15
birthday her father was informed by a
04:17
doctor at the british columbia
04:18
children’s hospital in canada
04:20
that his consent was no longer required
04:23
because the daughter was capable of
04:24
deciding the question on her own
04:27
the father believes that his daughter
04:28
was misled and brainwashed by school
04:30
administrators and leftist activists
04:32
who began to treat his daughter as a
04:34
transgender boy at school
04:36
when she was 12 years old without
04:38
informing her parents
04:40
the father immediately took the matter
04:41
to the courts trying to stop the
04:43
procedures from going forward against
04:45
his wishes
04:46
in february 2019 justice gregory bowden
04:51
of the bc supreme court found for the
04:53
government
04:54
and ordered that the 14 year old girl
04:56
began taking cross-sex hormones on her
04:59
own prerogative the court went far
05:01
beyond this finding and stipulated that
05:04
if either parental referral to her using
05:07
female pronouns
05:08
or being addressed by her birth name
05:10
they would be considered
05:11
guilty of family violence
05:16
the same evening the father gave an
05:18
interview to the federalist and referred
05:20
to his daughter as a girl this was later
05:22
cited by the court and the father was
05:24
convicted of family violence in
05:26
april of twenty nineteen once again the
05:29
judge
05:29
francesca marzari m-a-r-z-a-r-i
05:33
francesca marzari
05:37
went way beyond and issued an order
05:39
authorizing the father’s arrest
05:41
without a warrant by any police officer
05:43
who has reasonable grounds to believe
05:45
he has referred to his daughter as a
05:47
girl or with female
05:49
pronouns the court also imposed a gag
05:53
order so he can speak publicly about
05:54
anything related to his daughter or the
05:56
case keep in mind
05:58
there are no laws in canada that permit
06:00
the courts to issue
06:01
gag orders that stop parents from
06:03
talking to their children
06:05
or removing the parents from the
06:07
decision-making process
06:08
for medical treatment of their child the
06:11
appeal process did slightly relax
06:13
these findings and remove the part about
06:15
the father being arrested for family
06:16
violence based only on his comments
06:19
the gag order in other aspects remain in
06:21
force
06:22
and his daughter started the hormone
06:24
injections as of march 2019
06:26
at 15 years old she is sterilized
06:29
and must take the treatments for the
06:31
rest of her life
06:33
who knows what health problems she will
06:35
suffer as a result
06:36
the medical world admits they just don’t
06:40
know
06:43
how do we end up in this dark and
06:44
dangerous place
06:46
how would any child at such a young age
06:48
know for sure if they want to be
06:49
sterilized or not
06:52
it is stunning that somehow this has
06:53
become a partisan political issue
06:56
and that the left is supportive
07:00
famously the left calls conservatives
07:02
deplorables
07:03
but it’s the left which has lost its way
07:06
and they are in fact degenerates
07:08
and amoral the age of majority has long
07:12
been agreed upon as 18 years
07:14
for most things and even that might be
07:16
too young for these sorts of decisions
07:19
should we not at the very least explore
07:21
all avenues of mental health treatments
07:24
first and make sure there aren’t any
07:26
other separate issues
07:28
a 13 or 14 year old girl cannot consent
07:30
to have sex with an adult male because
07:32
she’s too young to be allowed to make
07:34
those decisions
07:35
she’s also too young to decide if she
07:37
should be sterilized
07:39
this child some argued was targeted by
07:43
the school and court
07:44
systems to make a political point
07:46
terrorists kill and hurt people to make
07:47
a political point too
07:49
at least they’re honest about it and
07:51
don’t try to impose gag orders and hide
07:54
from their own actions brad johnson
