Trans-Despotism on the March

Speaking of totalitarian despotism, put this one in your pipe and puff on it. It isn’t from the United States, but it’s close enough.

The story, from the Daily Wire (via Maggie’s Farm) tells of a fourteen year old girl in Canada who decided she was a boy. Her parents refused to allow her to have hormone injections, so a court overruled them and ordered the injections. Your child now belongs to the state.

But, that's not all. It is a crime not to use the child's chosen pronouns. When child’s father refused to call her by her preferred pronouns, a judge had him thrown in jail. If you think that there is no limit to the cultural insanity, you are not wrong:

On Tuesday, the father of a biological girl who believes she is a boy turned himself into a Canadian court and was subsequently taken to jail after the Attorney General of British Columbia issued an arrest warrant for contempt after the father had insisted on referring to his daughter as his “daughter” and used the pronouns “she” and “her.”

Robert Hoogland, from Surrey, British Columbia, has a 14-year-old daughter. In February 2019, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that the girl receive testosterone injections without obtaining parental consent. “The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence,” The Federalist noted.

Guilty of "family violence" so does calling their child by get biological pronoun equate to beating the cr*p out of your spouse or kids? Please define family violence..i do not think those words mean what you think they mean.

This is exactly what Jordan Peterson predicted with mandated pronoun speech laws.
