In Canada, parents have many rights, however calling their daughter, their daughter, is apparently no longer among them.
As many of you know, I like to go to original sources rather than depending on what others tell me. Everyone has an agenda they want to push or a narrative that serves their own purposes and sure enough, when I looked into this alleged case of a Canadian citizen being arrested for calling his daughter, "daughter," which of course is absurd, I found this:
2. It is declared under the Family Law Act that:
(a) AB is exclusively entitled to consent to medical treatment for gender dysphoria and to take any necessary legal proceedings in relation to such medical treatment;
(b) Pursuant to para. 201(2)(b), AB is permitted to bring this application under the Family Law Act and to bring or defend any further or future proceedings concerning his gender identity; and
(c) Attempting to persuade AB to abandon treatment for gender dysphoria; addressing AB by his birth name; referring to AB as a girl or with female pronouns whether to him directly or to third parties; shall be considered to be family violence under s. 38 of the Family Law Act.
As you can clearly see from this order straight from the Supreme Court of British Columbia, there's absolutely nothing to this ridiculous sto--
 The protection order is required to be prepared by the Registry. However, I will summarize the substance of the order here:
a) CD shall be restrained from:
i. attempting to persuade AB to abandon treatment for gender dysphoria;
ii. addressing AB by his birth name; and
iii. referring to AB as a girl or with female pronouns whether to AB directly or to third parties
It is now considered "family violence" for a Canadian parent to call his daughter by her... name.
I could see how that would be... okay no I can't.
The court was also asked to gag him.
 In his amended application, AB seeks a series of orders that would restrain his father, CD, from publishing, speaking or giving interviews about AB's case and his medical records.
Naturally the right to free speech is revered by Canadian courts, enshrined in... no it isn't.
 CD shall be free to communicate to the court with respect to AB's sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, mental or physical health, medical status or therapies through submissions, pleadings or affidavits, but these materials may not be shared with third parties. In other words, the protection order shall not restrict what can be filed or said in court, but shall restrict what can be shared from the court file or said outside of court.
I can't really put it any better than this guy.
As someone who identifies as libertarian (don't misdogma me!), I really don't care what adults want to do assuming they leave me alone as well.
But we're not talking about an adult here. We're talking about a child.
By the 7th grade, the school had changed his daughter's name in the yearbook without telling her parents, and "socially transitioned" her with the input of gender ideologue psychologist Wallace Wong, who advised the pubescent child to take testosterone.
The report adds that Wong referred Hoogland's daughter to the endocrinology unit at the local hospital, and that a "treatment" plan was put into action on her first visit.
Sounds legit. I mean, she's what, 13 at that point? Most of the decisions I made at 13 were mature and well-considered like the time I wanted to see how tall an object I could jump off before I hurt myself...
"Here I am, sitting there as a parent, watching a perfectly healthy child be destroyed, and there's nothing I can do but sit on the sideline — and according to Justice Boden at the time, cheer it on," Hoogland said in an interview last year. "I can only affirm, or get thrown in jail."
What does he know? He's just her father. It's not like he's an endocrinologist or a judge or anything.
"They've now created a delusion, and they're forcing parents, like myself, to live in this delusion," Hoogland said last year. "And then what happens when the bubble explodes, and the delusion ends?"
"She can never go back to being a girl," he added. "I mean, she'll always be a girl, but she'll never go back to being a girl in a healthy body that she should have had — she won't be able to have children, she won't have a family. These kids don't understand what this stuff means."
"What kind of father would I be if, let's say in five, ten years, my daughter is de-transitioning, and she turns to me and says — ‘Why did none of you do anything to stop this? I was a child. None of you stuck your neck out for me back then.'"
Oh, come on, what are the odds of that? Like, Barely 80%?
Evidence from the 10 available prospective follow-up studies from childhood to adolescence (reviewed in the study by Ristori and Steensma28) indicates that for ~80% of children who meet the criteria for GDC, the GD recedes with puberty.
But, hey, that's just those crazy Canadians, right? Such a thing could never happen here.
Why, only conspiracy theorists, conservative ideologues, and bigots would suggest laws championing iNCluSiviTy would be weaponized.
Which reminds me, anyone read "The Equality Act" passed by the House last month?
Maybe we should.
