South Carolina Lawmakers Propose Ban on Drugging and Mutilating ‘Transgender’ Kids
South Carolina legislators have proposed a bill that would ban “transgender” children from being drugged or operated upon for the purposes of their gender transition.
The legislation would prohibit drugs treating the “symptoms of clinically significant distress resulting from gender dysphoria.” It would criminalize all efforts to transition minors under the age of 18 toward a different gender.
The legislation’s primary sponsor is State Rep. Stewart Jones (R-Laurens). He told Post and Courier that he drafted the legislation after being alerted to the tragic case of 7-year-old James Younger of Texas.
“It’s almost been weaponized, and this is to protect children,” Jones said.
“For a child, it’s a whole different matter,” Jones added. “Somebody under 18, they can’t buy cigarettes and alcohol, and so they shouldn’t be able to have a sex change.”
Chase Glenn, who works as the executive director of LGBTQ-rights advocacy group Alliance for Full Acceptance in Charleston, is firmly against this legislation to protect children from these predatory practices.
“This is obviously a very troubling bill. This is an incredibly vulnerable population that we’re talking about, with an already high suicide rate,” he said. “This could have disastrous implications.”
The “disastrous implications” are more likely to come from children who are coerced into adopting this destructive lifestyle. A movement has developed in recent months of former transgender people wishing to de-transition from their non-birth gender.
Big League Politics reported on this phenomenon in October:
The movement is starting in Britain, where a charity called The Detransition Advocacy Network is being set up to help people return to their birth sex. They intend to provide support to detransitioners against pressure from the rabid LGBT community that is actively recruiting to their dangerous lifestyle.
The creator of the group, 28-year-old Charlie Evans, has detransitioned publicly and notes that young and mentally ill people are being recruited by the LGBT agenda. These vulnerable groups are being coerced by LGBT activists into taking drugs such as puberty blockers and putting their genitals under the knife.
“I’m in communication with 19 and 20-year-olds who have had full gender reassignment surgery who wish they hadn’t, and their dysphoria hasn’t been relieved, they don’t feel better for it,” Evans told Sky News. “They don’t know what their options are now.”
“I think some of the common characteristics are that they tend to be around their mid-20s, they’re mostly female and mostly same-sex attracted, and often autistic as well,” said Evans, who called herself a man for almost a decade before returning to her birth gender.
After going public with her story, Evans has been deluged with hundreds of individuals who feel the same way she does. It has emboldened her to start the group, and encourage others to fight through the hatred and harassment from the intolerant LGBT community.
Another individual who has detransitioned, who has only given the name “Ruby” due to fear of reprisal from LGBT activists, told Sky News that she began identifying as a male at the age of 13 and began to take drugs to induce her gender transition shortly afterward.
Ruby was planning to have her breasts removed this summer before she started having doubts about her transition.
“I didn’t think any change was going to be enough in the end and I thought it was better to work on changing how I felt about myself, than changing my body,” said Ruby, who is now 21-years-old.
“I’ve seen similarities in the way I experience gender dysphoria, in the way I experience other body image issues,” she added.
Ruby believes that the public health system in Britain has failed her, and urged her to undergo a transition that may have drastically worsened her mental health problems.
“When I was at my gender clinic to get referred for hormones, we had a session where I went over my mental health issues and I told them about my eating disorder and they didn’t suggest that that could maybe connected with my gender dysphoria,” Ruby said.
The LGBT agenda wants to force government institutions to be complicit in recruiting children into this depraved lifestyle. Jones aims to prevent kids “from being pressured or bullied in any kind of circumstance to have their gender reassigned” with his legislative efforts.
