    Dad Calling Gender-Confused Daughter A Girl And Not A Boy Constitutes Family Violence, BC Judge Rules

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 25, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) A Canadian judge found a father guilty of family violence for publicly and privately referring to his 14-year-old daughter who identifies as a boy as a girl.

    British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Francesca Marzari also issued a yearlong restraining order forbidding the father from speaking publicly and to reporters about his legal action to stop his daughter, referred to in court documents as AB, receiving testosterone shots against his wishes, reported the The Federalist.

    Marzari further forbade the father from referring to his daughter as a girl, either directly to her or to third parties, from using her birth name, and from attempting to persuade his daughter to abandon treatment for gender dysphoria.

    The fathers expressions of rejection of ABs gender identity, both publicly and privately, constitutes family violence against AB, she wrote in her April 15 ruling.

    The father argued that he had a right as a parent to express what he believed to his daughter and the world at large, Marzari wrote.

    But his rights do not include harming his child.

    Marzaris order is the latest blow against British Columbia father, referred in court documents as CD, in his legal battle to stop his troubled daughters transition. CD is separated from ABs mother, and they share joint custody of the teenager.

    Justice Gregory Bowden ruled in February that AB did not need her fathers consent to begin testosterone shots and that not affirming AB in her chosen gender was family violence.

    AB has received regular injections at British Columbia (BC) Childrens Hospital over the course of the last two months, The Federalist reported.

    CD appealed the decision and continued to refer to his daughter as a girl in media interviews, including telling The Federalist he does so because she is a girl. Her DNA will not change through all these experiments that they do. CD did likewise in interviews with Kari Simpson of the BC parents rights group Culture Guard.

    As a result, ABs lawyers who notably include longtime queer activist Barbara Findlay asked the court for a restraining order against CD, alleging his conduct was putting AB at risk.

    As evidence against her father, AB recounted that during one visit, CD sat her down to watch a video about Maxine a pseudonym publications use to refer to her and she refused.

    The teen also alleged her father was unable to call AB by his chosen name or gender, and the visit ended prematurely and badly, Marzari wrote.

    For his part, ABs father argued others have pressured and co-opted his daughter, so that AB is not speaking for himself, the judge wrote in her ruling.

    In defence of advancing his dispute with his child so publicly, he says that this is not a dispute with his child so much as with activists that want to take away his parental rights.

    According to documents of the earlier case, AB has been troubled since her parents separated in 2013. She suffers from depression and has attempted suicide at least four times, and went through a lesbian stage in Grade 7.

    CD described his daughter as very vulnerable in a February article in The Federalist. He believes she lacks the mental capacity and emotional maturity to make the decision to have testosterone treatments, which have some irreversible effects.

    When AB claimed to be transgender at age 13, school staff sent her and her mother, without her fathers knowledge, to transgender activist psychologist Dr. Wallace Wong, who recommended she begin hormone therapy.

    CD has since filed a complaint against Wong to the College of Psychologists of British Columbia, alleging Wong unethically and unprofessionally led his child to seek a transition.

    Marzari rejected CDs activist argument as not supported by evidence and cited Justice Bowdens earlier finding that AB was competent to consent to medical treatment.

    But Marzari herself has a long history of LGBT and abortion advocacy with West Coast LEAF before her 2017 appointed as judge, according to Culture Guards Simpson.

    Moreover, ABs lawyer and lesbian activist Findlay is listed as a respondent in the original case heard by Bowden.

    CDs lawyers also argued his Federalist and Culture Guard interviews were hearsay, and that he had no intent to violate the ban on revealing his daughters identity.

    Marzari ruled CD did not disavow what was reported in those sources and they were reliable enough for the purposes of deciding the issue.

    However, I am not concerned with the truth of what CD has said in those interviews, but with the words having been said at all, she wrote.

    The father does not accept this courts previous determination that referring to AB with female pronouns or otherwise denying his gender identity is causing AB harm, Mazari observed.

    CDs behaviour both before and after the determinations made by this Court indicate that he is likely to continue to engage in conduct that constitutes family violence against AB, she wrote.

    That would include conduct already determined to be family violence by this court, and the publication and sharing of deeply private information that is harmful to AB.

    Hence, the need for the restraining order.

    As well as forbidden from referring to his daughter as a girl, CD cannot directly, or indirectly through an agent or third party, publish or share information or documentation relating to ABs sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, mental or physical health, medical status or therapies except with lawyers and medical personnel involved in the case.

    Culture Guards Simpson blasted Marzari as an activist judge and the ruling as a violation of CDs free speech and parental rights.

    American Conservative writer Rod Dreher called the ruling horrifying.

    (I)f you think this isnt ultimately going to be tried in the U.S., youre dreaming, he warned.

    CDs appeal of Bowdens ruling will be heard May 14, The Federalist reported.

    When a government neuters your child and punishes you for objecting, there is nothing left for the parent to lose. Might as well go full Breivik at that point.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.
