‘Child Abuse’? Massachusetts Therapy Ban Means Parents Could Lose Their Kids if They Try to Help Them

Massachusetts lawmakers are considering a therapy ban that would not only make it illegal to counsel children about unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion, but also punish parents who allow it by taking custody of their children.

Andrew Beckwith, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, told CBN News that the bill “categorizes the treatment itself as child abuse.”

It appears that Massachusetts is the first state to consider defining such therapy as abusive and allow for the option of taking away parental custody.

“This is a bill that would allow the state to take, for example, your daughter, and make her someone else’s son,” Beckwith said.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, a powerful LGBTQ advocacy organization, 15 states and Washington, DC have already passed therapy bans for youth. Beckwith says Massachusetts could be the first to add the abuse definition. Lawmakers in Maine and Colorado are also considering therapy bans for youth right now. LGBTQ advocates have argued for years that therapy that allows youth to discuss their concerns about unwanted same-sex desires or gender identity issues is harmful.

Massachusetts lawmakers first introduced a youth therapy ban bill in 2013. Beckwith says proponents appear to have an “aggressive timeline” right now, because last year lawmakers couldn’t agree on the abuse provision and delayed a vote until the end of the session in June.

This year, according to Beckwith, they’re already taking action. Lawmakers held a hearing on March 5 to consider testimony from those the measure would impact.

Parental custody is already an issue in transgender cases involving children across the country. Recently, Ohio officials stripped parental rights from a couple that opposed medical treatment for their teenage daughter who wanted to become a boy. In Texas, a divorced father and mother are fighting over medical treatment for their 6-year-old son. The mother says he identifies as a girl and wants to pursue medical treatments to help him change. The father says the boy identifies as a boy and opposes the treatments.

The Massachusetts Senate’s bill S.70, titled “Relative to abusive practices to change sexual orientation and gender identity,” was reported favorably by committee Monday, March 11, and referred to the committee on Senate Rules.

Hearings on Massachusetts House Bill H.110, “An Act banning conversion therapy,” was extended for additional testimony. A new date for the extended hearings has not been set. The House version of the bill would “prohibit practices by health care providers that attempt to change sexual orientation or gender identity. Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities.”

New French law compels schools to replace ‘mother/father’ with ‘parent 1/parent 2’

Callum Paton reports for Newsweek that on Feb. 12, 2019, France’s National Assembly voted in favor of an amendment removing the words “mother” and “father” from forms in French schools, replacing them with “parent 1” and “parent 2.” In so doing, the amendment became law, alongside a new school bill.

France’s majority party, La République en Marche! (LREM; in English “Forward!“), which was founded in 2016 by now-President Emmanuel Macron, says that the new law is a necessary step to bring France’s schools into line with the European nation’s 2013 same-sex marriage law — the Marriage for All Law that was passed in 2013. A Forward! legislator, Valérie Petit, told French outlet 20 Minutes: “The amendment aims to anchor into law the family diversity of children in the administrative forms submitted in school.”

Rodrigo Arenas, co-chair of Fédération des Conseils de Parents d’Élèves (FCPEP), the country’s largest federation of parents, called the amendment a “very good thing” because it “takes into account changing family situations” and “resonates with the law passed on the fight against harassment, because often in situations of child harassment, children have been targeted for not conforming.”

In a tweet on Feb. 14, Arenas decries usage of “mother” and “father” as religious tyranny (translated from French):

It will be necessary for the supporters of the “a Papa, a mother” to understand that a religious conception of the family cannot be imposed on a secular public school. This is why private schools exist.

Arenas also retweeted a tweet by LICRA (International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism), calling for making “homophobia” (whatever that means) a crime:

Racism, anti-Semitism, negationnisme, homophobia must cease to be regarded in our country as “opinion crimes” enshrined in the Law of 1881 which protects the freedom of the press. They must be considered as common law offences.

Conservative parties call the amendment a danger to society:

  • Xavier Breton, a conservative deputy for the country’s Les Républicains (LR), denounced the law as frightening, calling it a result of “politically correct thinking that did not correspond to reality” in that 95% of legal unions in France are comprised of male-female couples.
  • Eric Ciotti, another lawmaker whom Newsweek calls “rightwing” (how come the media never call leftwing parties “leftwing”?), calls the law a “fantasy” and that the “negotiation of gender” would “deconstruct the balance of society.”
  • France’s main “far-right” party, the Rassemblement National (RN), which progressed to the second round of the country’s 2017 presidential elections, also objected to the amendment. RN leader said “the mask had fallen” from the face of Forward!, and that Forward! is showing their contempt for the family.

Meanwhile, the Yellow Vest rebellion continues in the streets of Paris. In the video below, a protester had his hand blown off.

Homosexual actress Ellen Page slams Chris Pratt for attending “infamously anti-LGBTQ” church

Now do followers of Islam, Ellen. I triple-dog-dare you!

From Fox News: Ellen Page slammed Chris Pratt for attending a church she claimed is “infamously anti-LGBTQ” and doubled down on her comments on Saturday.

Page’s criticism came after Pratt appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and talked about being religious and completing a 21-day fast inspired by the Biblical Prophet Daniel.

“The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” actor frequently attends Zoe Church, which is modeled after Hillsong Church, a megachurch founded in Australia but which has locations in New York City and Los Angeles, the New York Times previously reported. Variety stated Pratt was also a Hillsong church attendee.

Following Pratt’s appearance on the late-night show, Page took to Twitter to criticize Pratt for attending the church, which she did not name. “Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?” She tweeted along with a Hollywood Reporter article about Pratt’s interview.

On Saturday Page, who came out as gay during a 2014 speech in Las Vegas at a conference for the Human Rights Campaign, doubled down on her comment against Pratt and said the actor should “try and listen” to the LGBTQ community.

“If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed,” the 31-year-old actress tweeted Saturday. “Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop. Sending love to all.

She said in another tweet, “If lgbtq+ people are expressing their pain, their trauma, their experiences … maybe just try and listen? Open your heart, stop being defensive and have compassion. It’s a beautiful and life changing feeling, empathy. Much love truly to all.

Pastor Chad Veach previously told the New York Times he modeled Zoe church after Hillsong, which is popular among celebrities, including Justin Bieber.

Senior pastor Brian Houston at Hillsong previously said in a 2015 statement that the church does “not affirm a gay lifestyle.”

“We do not affirm a gay lifestyle and because of this we do not knowingly have actively gay people in positions of leadership, either paid or unpaid,” he said in a post on the church’s website. “I recognize this one statement alone is upsetting to people on both sides of this discussion, which points to the complexity of the issue for churches all over the world.”

He said that he loves and accepts “people on a personal level.”

“Everyone is welcome at Hillsong church except for known predators, those who are disruptive, or those who have adversarial agendas,” he said, adding that gay people are welcomed at the church but cannot pursue a leadership role.

Page has been outspoken about LGBTQ issues and recently spoke out against the attack on “Empire” star Jussie Smollett. (Maybe you should wait for that investigation to pan out, Ellen. It has yet to be proven that an attack actually did occur.)

Radical feminist kicked off Baltimore LGBTQ Commission for referring to male rapist as male

Trans ideology has allowed a male rapist into a female prison. It has allowed males to compete in female sports. It has forced women to accept men into showers and locker rooms. It has allowed a man to be named Glamour Magazine’s Woman of the Year. Women who object are vilified and harassed on social media; they lose friends, social standing, and even jobs.

The transgender fiction is too much even for some Leftists.

Last November, a self-described Progressive playwright said she was blacklisted for dissenting from the transgender groupthink.

The latest inmate to break free from the Left’s thought-gulag is self-described radical feminist Julia Beck.

Austin Ruse reports for Crisis Magazine, Feb. 1, 2019, that Julia Beck, a lesbian and a self-confessed “radical feminist”, told her story on a recent Heritage Foundation panel, convened to encourage opposition to a Congressional bill called the Equality Act.

HR 2282, The Equality Act, introduced by Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) — who was the first openly “gay” mayor of a U.S. state capital — would enshrine the transgender ideology into American law under the legal concept of public accommodation, wherein the federal government will take away any and all women-only spaces in the country.

Julia Beck said she was booted from the Baltimore LGBTQ Commission because she referred to a male rapist, who claims to be female, as male. The authorities put the male rapist in a woman’s prison, where he proceeded to rape more women.

The logical question to ask the prison authorities and Baltimore’s LGBTQ Commission is this:

How can a man rape women unless he is male?

For correctly referring to the rapist as male, Beck was accused of “violence” and voted off the LGBTQ Commission. Leading the attack on Beck was the Commission chairman — a man who also claims to be female, and a lesbian.

During the hearing to kick Beck off the LGBTQ Commission:

  • A gay man announced that “biological sex is a thing of the past.” To which Beck sensibly responded, “How can we be homosexual if sex is fake?”
  • Testifying against Beck was a woman who identifies as a man, insisting she is not and had never been a woman despite having a vulva because “It does not make me any less of a man that I have a vulva. It’s there and it’s masculine.” Alas, as described by Beck, the woman-who-calls-herself-a-man had “just survived a hysterectomy and was shaking and complaining of hot flashes.”

Beck told the largely conservative audience at Heritage Foundation:

“There are only three sexualities: homosexual, heterosexual, and bi-sexual. All the hip new identities in the alphabet soup like non-binary, gender fluid, pansexual, are not real sexualities. Sexualities are based on sex while gender identities are based on stereotypes.”

To underscore her point, Beck points out that so-called “trans-women”, i.e., biological males, usually present themselves in the most exaggerated and even grotesque caricatures of women.

Beck was one of four radical feminists on the Heritage panel, all of whom have virtually nothing in common with conservatives other than opposition to the trans ideology.

Beck’s co-panelists also had horror stories to tell:

(1) Jennifer Chavez, of the Women’s Liberation Front, told several stories of desperate mothers whose kids were hijacked into the trans-cult. A 14-year-old girl “spontaneously” decided she was male and, according to her mother, went from a “sweet loving girl to a foul-mouthed hateful pansexual male.” The girl ran away from home and moved to Oregon, where she was given a double mastectomy and a radical hysterectomy, even though she had been diagnosed previously with ADHD, depression, and anxiety. She is now living on the streets and planning a surgery that would take part of her arm in order to create a crude penis with a mechanism to fake an erection.

Chavez said much of this contagion is spread via YouTube and other social media sites by Jazz Jennings and someone named Riley J. Dennis, who is famous for saying it is bigotry for males to avoid sex with “trans-women” such as himself. Dennis, one of the sickest and most dangerous people on social media, has a huge YouTube following where he discusses all manner of vile things such as how to have sex with someone in various stages of “transitioning.” A short clip of Jazz Jennings was shown at Heritage in which he was celebrating his impending castration. It showed a “penis” cake that Jennings gleefully sliced to cheers from his family and friends.

(2) Kara Dansky, also of the Women’s Liberation Front, said that the issue is really about the intellectual bankruptcy of gender identity ideology and the importance of language. No one really knows what these words mean; all definitions of gender identity either reinforce sexist stereotypes or are completely tautological and rely on regressive sex-based stereotypes. Referring to men who identify as female because they see themselves as nurturing and compassionate and like to wear dresses, Dansky said this is insulting to women who worked hard to get into the workplace, dress the way we like, and that women are not defined by what we wear.

Tranny flies into a rage at store clerk for being called the ‘wrong’ gender

Remember the Hans Christian Andersen tale about the child who, seeing the Emperor parading naked, alone blurted out the truth?

This is a contemporary version of the classic tale.

On July 25, 2018, at the GameStop store in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a tall man with a husky voice was paying for an item at the counter.

The male store clerk correctly addressed the man as “sir”.

The tranny went berserk. Spewing obscenities at the store clerk, he demanded his money back because the store clerk called him “sir” instead of “ma’am”: “I don’t want credit, you’re going to give me my f***ing money back!”

A female shopper intervened and asked the tranny to stop wearing because there were children present. She said: “Excuse me, sir. There is a young man in here, you need to watch your mouth. I can call the police if you would like me to, you need to settle down.”

The tranny got even more enraged and told off the woman: “Excuse me, it’s ‘ma’am. It is ‘ma’am’! You need to mind your business!”

Then he turned back to the hapless store clerk behind the counter and shouted: “It’s ‘ma’am’! Once again, ‘ma’am’!”

The clerk tried to pacify the tranny and said: “I said ‘you guys’.”

The tranny yelled, “Right before you said ‘Sir’!” and went apesh*t, gesticulating, spewing obscenities, and screaming, “You said ‘sir’! Take it outside if you want to call me ‘sir’ again! I’m suing you!”

Storming toward the door, the tranny kicked over a stand of toys, then turned back to continue his tirade, screaming at the clerk: “I need your corporate number, now!” as the clerk repeatedly apologized. (Daily Mail)

The incident was verified by another customer who posted this on Yelp on July 26, 2018:

I was in this GameStop location yesterday and I saw the egregious treatment of an employee. As I walked in, I saw a man at the counter speaking with the employee…. As I was in the store for about 30 min, I was seeing how the man was pushing against store policies to try to get his way. [The employee] was extremely calm, respectful and understanding to this man. Throughout the interaction the man would not listen to [the employee] and actually escalated to call the police to challenge store policy. It was a CRAZY scene. [The employee] did not react in any negative way, just kept [his] cool and continued to do an amazing job. I will continue to return to this location, and I hope [the employee] gets the recognition [he] deserves as a great team member. People are there true selves under pressure, and I don’t think I could have reacted to such absurdity in the eloquent way.”

Boy Scouts of America is bankrupt

Another longtime American institution lost to pedophiles and the Left’s political correctness.

Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the largest Scouting organizations and youth organizations in the United States. Boys are trained in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. More than 110 million Americans have been participants in BSA programs at some time.

In recent years, BSA has been mired in controversy over the admission of LGBTs as scouts or adult leaders. On January 1, 2014, after major businesses like Intel, UPS and Merch severed their financial ties with the BSA over its decision to retain its policy prohibiting LGBT scouts and adults, BSA changed its policy. Henceforth, LGBTs are allowed, but any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, is not allowed. That, in turn, alienated some churches and conservative members who left the BSA for a new Christian scouting group, Trail Life USA.

Max Jaeger reports for the New York Post that sources told The Wall Street Journal that the Boy Scouts of America has hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

On December 12, 2018, BSA sent a letter to its employees that it plans to “explore all options available to ensure that the local and national programming of the Boy Scouts of America continues uninterrupted.”

BSA is overcome by an avalanche of problems, including:

  1. A precipitous drop in membership of as many as two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys — since the 1970s. In the last two years alone, the Mormon Church — BSA’s first partner — where scout membership had long been considered a rite of passage, pulled 610,000 scouts.
  2. Dozens of sex abuse lawsuits, stemming from hundreds of claims of abuse in the ‘70s and ‘80s, including one filed by four former scouts who claim they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The plaintiffs claim that BSA was aware that scouting had become a “pedophile magnet” but didn’t take appropriate action to prevent abuse from occurring. Last year alone, BSA paid $7.6 million to an outside law firm to help fight its legal battles.
  3. A lawsuit by the Girl Scouts this November for trademark infringement and dilution after the Boy Scouts of America dropped “Boy” from its name to rebrand as just “Scouts” in its quest expand recruitment to girls and “transgenders”.

Virginia school board fires Christian teacher for refusing to use ‘transgender’ pronouns

The new tyranny in America.

Graham Moomaw reports for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Dec. 6, 2018, that the West Point High School in West Point, Virginia, fired French teacher Peter Vlaming for refusing to go along with the madness of ‘transgenderism’ by addressing a female 9th-grade student who imagines herself to be male with the Left-mandated “correct” male pronouns.

Note that FOTM‘s recounting of Moomaw’s report for the Richmond Times-Dispatch refers to the biologically-female student as “girl,” “she” and “her,” instead of “boy” and male pronouns employed by Moomaw, which is now mandated for journalists in America’s insane Left-dominated media.

Vlaming, 47, who had taught at the school for almost seven years after spending more than a decade in France, told his superiors his Christian faith prevented him from using male pronouns for a student he saw as female.

A year ago, the student was in Vlaming’s class, at which point, she had identified as female. Then, over the summer, the girl’s family informed the school system of her “transition” to being male. Vlaming agreed to use the student’s new, male name, but avoided using any pronouns — he or him, and she or her — when referring to the student in her presence. But Vlaming did use female pronouns to refer to the female student in conversations with others. According to “witnesses,” during a class activity on Halloween involving the use of a virtual reality headset, the student was about to run into a wall, and Vlaming told others to stop “her.”

In other words, the school relied on spies and informants.

The student said that Vlaming made her feel uncomfortable and singled out. And the school’s administrators sided with her. They recommended that Vlaming be fired for violating the school system’s nondiscrimination and harassment policies that were updated a year ago to include protections for gender identity.

West Point’s principal Jonathan Hochman said he had told Vlaming to use male pronouns in accordance with the student’s wishes, and hyperbolically condemned Vlaming’s refusal as “I can’t think of a worse way to treat a child than what was happening.” West Point schools Superintendent Laura Abel said that Vlaming’s gender “discrimination” created “a hostile learning environment” which made the student and her parents feel “disrespected.”

Although the school district’s attorney, Stacy Haney, justifies Vlaming’s firing on the basis of a school employee’s refusal to follow policies, Vlaming’s lawyer, Shawn Voyles, said the school district’s nondiscrimination and harassment policies contain no specific guidance on the use of gender pronouns, and that even as a public employee, Vlaming has constitutional rights of his own, specificially the right “to be free from being compelled to speak something that violates your conscience.”

Speaking in his own defense, Vlaming said he loves and respects all his students and had tried to reach a solution based on “mutual tolerance.” But the effort was rejected, which put him at risk of losing his job for having views held by “most of the world for most of human history.” Vlaming said, “That is not tolerance. That is coercion.”

Vlaming’s hearing drew an overflow crowd, made up largely of parents and students who support him. They describe Vlaming as a model teacher who does extra duty as a soccer coach and bus driver. They had brought to the hearing “Justice for Mr. Vlaming” signs, but school officials forebade the signs in the meeting room with the ridiculous excuse that the small room did not have space for the signs. So the signs were left in a stack outside the meeting room’s doors.

During the hearing, to highlight the pitfalls of rules against “misgendering,” Vlaming and his lawyer pointed out that school principal Hochman himself used the “wrong” pronoun for the student during his testimony. Describing his conversation with Vlaming after the incident on Halloween, Hochman testified that he told Vlaming: “You need to say sorry for that. And refer to her by the male pronoun.”

Despite the support from many students and parents, the school board chose to terminate Vlaming’s employment. Superintendent Abel released this brief statement after the vote: “As detailed during the course of the public hearing, Mr. Vlaming was recommended for termination due to his insubordination and repeated refusal to comply with directives made to him by multiple WPPS administrators.”

Vlaming has asked the School Board to reconsider their decision — the “absurdity” of punishing a teacher for discrimination on the basis of pronoun usage alone, with no accusation of overtly malicious behavior. He said, “I am being punished for what I haven’t said.”

Vlaming is considering a wrongful-termination lawsuit and is consulting with his attorney. He said: “I have to research how we would do that, what that would entail. I do think it’s a serious question of First Amendment rights.”
