As political correctness increasingly prevails over logic and reason, social acceptance can actually foster and hide abuse, and society begins to accept the unacceptable. One such example, which holds an eerie parallel to the classic song by The Who, was featured in the Daily Telegraph: a seven-year-old boy in the UK, forced by his mother to live as a girl.
One of the distressing components of this story is how social services staff failed to identify the ‘significant emotional harm’ being done to the boy in question:
The judge said the woman had been “absolutely convinced” the youngster “perceived himself as a girl” and was determined that he should be a girl. He said the boy was now living with his father, who is separated from the woman. The youngster still saw his mother.
[Judge]Hayden said “flares of concern” had been sent from a “whole raft of multi-disciplinary agencies”, and he could not understand why so many concerns had been “disregarded so summarily” by social services staff.
The judge said social services staff had “moved into wholesale acceptance that [the boy] should be regarded as a girl”.
Incredibly, the mother of the boy seemed completely unconcerned with the psychological trauma she was causing her son. Rather than allowing the boy to naturally discover with which gender he identified, the mother pushed her own preferences on him, subjecting both him and her to live a warped, disturbed reality:
The judge said he had analysed evidence from the boy’s parents, local authority social workers and a psychologist. He indicated the boy’s parents had separated some years ago. The boy had stayed with his mother.
The boy’s mother “told me that [he] was ‘living in stealth’ by which was meant, she explained, that he was living life entirely as a girl”, said [Judge] Hayden. “He dressed, at all times, like a girl and, it transpired, had been registered at a new general practitioner’s as a girl.”
He added: “I consider that [the mother] has caused significant emotional harm to [her son] in her active determination that he should be a girl.”
Despite the mother’s claims, it seemed the boy wanted nothing more than to be a boy. Happily, the boy seems to finally be able to do so under the care of his father:
Hayden said the boy had settled well in the care of his father and his father’s partner. “I have been told that [the father] and his partner were shocked when they first saw [the boy] by the extent to which he appeared to be a girl, both in appearance and in mannerism,” said the judge. “However, what is striking is how well [the boy] has settled down.”
The judge added: “I have noted from reports that the boy] has become interested in Power Rangers, SpongeBob, superheroes and is constantly finding new interests … It is striking that most of [the boy’s] interests are male-oriented.
“I am entirely satisfied, both on the basis of the reports and [the father’s] evidence at this hearing, that he has brought no pressure on (the boy) to pursue masculine interests. [The boy’s] interests and energy are entirely self-motivated.”
The unquestioned acceptance of the young boy living as a girl is a disturbing sign of what is happening in our world. Biology, a hard, scientific fact, is ignored (and even contested) in order to adhere to a politically correct ideology. This is only one story that has been uncovered - how many more children are suffering from abuse because of a forced, radical ideology?
When marriage is stripped of its male-female definition, it opens Pandora’s box of gender horrors. Gender ideology seeks to destroy marriage, the family, and the simple joys that accompany each sex; this boy is only one of its victims. Australians must understand that redefining marriage is only the tip of the iceberg. As this story shows, there are dire consequences if we allow radical ideologies to pervert our cultural perceptions of truth.
