On Friday, March 31st, UConn’s law school hosted a symposium that drew attention for its focus on Parental Rights. There was the 90-minute Panel 2, “Parental Rights and the Policing of Gender-Affirming Care” featuring:
* Alexander Chen, Lecturer of Law and Founding Director of the LGBTQ+ Advocacy Clinic at Harvard Law School
* Patience “Polly” Crozier, Senior Staff Attorney at GLAD
* Greta LaFleur, Associate Professor of American Studies and Director of Graduate Studies American Studies at Yale University
- all of the panelists are active in higher education, politics, and law
- they are constant, and efficient: training students, recruiting future lawyers, and pushing statutes and policies
- all see their roles as “saving” children from more than simply gender dysphoria; saving them from a “harmful” worldview that acknowledges physical and biological objectivities
Over-arching claim: the world, medicine and culture forces a gender identity upon children.
Reality: physical biology and DNA provide a teleological foundation, that we are created beings. Nature and nature’s God have never provided examples of identity rooted in psychological problems, NOR examples of society benefitting even a little bit, from such normative deviations. Further evidence corroborates the reality that rapid-onset gender dysphoria is what has by-and-large bred the activism the panelists managed to (thinly) veil.
The greater the deviations, correspondingly LESS of the following benefits: species procreation, healthy mental outlook, healthy relationship dynamics with men and women, and knowing self and God.
The panelists are cordially invited to explain which societal benefits result from policies that conceal a child’s peer-influenced decision from their parents’ knowledge.
Claim: children need outlets to express what might be a variation on sexuality that is unique to them; not allowing this expression would result in severe psychological trauma.
Reality: children are UNABLE to grasp sex and the layered psychological depth of uniting one physical body with another. Sexual abuse is what results in severe confusion and Trauma: broken bodies, broken hearts and broken people. Rest assured not a single person on this earth has “perfect” sexuality; and the un-bullied person is rare indeed.
The goals at this symposium were not to reconcile worldviews, nor strengthen American families. These cloistered ideologues, operating in isolation from normative reality, pushed for a greater divide. Six questions:
- How are educators and medical personnel differentiating between clinical gender dysphoria and the phenomenon known as social contagion among teen girls?
- If idea exposure is a concern, why NOT include religious texts like the Bible or Quran to expose children to ideas they could identify with in school libraries? (church and state ‘separation’ is no more: gender-ology is a doctrine requiring faith to believe).
- How exactly are pediatricians, child psychologists and gender specialists explaining the documented risks of hormone use and puberty blockers to children?
- What steps are pediatricians, child psychologists and gender specialists taking to avoid a permanent, costly, life-altering mis-diagnosis? Detransitioner Chloe Cole is filing lawsuits.
- If gender identity is so fluid, why is there a huge policy push to access medical surgery (aka “gender affirming care”) as quickly as possible?
- What kinds of gender-affirming care are available for detransitioners in Connecticut?
Any of the panelists featured in the UConn law symposium may answer any of the questions above, for Connecticut parents to better understand the context, and their options.
