Why It’s Probably Not A Coincidence
That The Mother Transing Her 7-Year-Old
Isn’t Biologically Related

The story of seven-year-old James, whom his mother has pressured to become “Luna,” has been all over my newsfeed. The messy custody battle deserves every second of our click-bait-prone attention: Jeffrey Younger, James’s father, wants to keep his son’s body intact, while Anne Georgulas, James’s mother, wants to allow for “treatment” that would physically and chemically castrate him. The havoc that divorce wreaks in a child’s life is mainstage in this tragic case. Most of us children of divorce quickly learn to act one way with mom and another way with dad.

Comments:

Good analysis, with helpful suggestions and warnings.

This whole article: What. Adoptees. Have. Been. Saying. For. A. Long. Time. Now. FTA = “During her testimony Georgulas stated she is not the biological mother of James or his twin brother Jude. She purchased eggs from a biological stranger. This illuminates a well-known truth in the world of family and parenthood: biological parents are the most connected to, invested in, and protective of their children. That’s why parental rights are a thing, and why parents—not the government—should have authority over medical decisions and education. It’s one reason biological parents are the two people to whom children have a natural right.“

Hmmm . . . I have A LOT! of experience with adoptive families. I have a bit of a hard time with some of this. I also have experience that leads me to agree with some of it. That said, the author makes some very good points. This one, in particular struck me as meaningful: Third-party reproduction begins with the premise that the child exists for the adult, not the other way around. Again - sometimes first party reproduction is motivated in like manner.

I was a foster child. That is a step down from adoptee, because for them to actually want to keep you they have to get a paycheck. Having said that, the item that concerns me most about this 'mother', it that she is a psychologist specializing in children. 1st, isn't there a rule about treating your own family? 2nd Why is she permitted to practice in the first place???

This whole mess is a reminder that establishes norms have been derived through the ages for a reason and are not all outdated quirks. Humanity constantly strove for the answers to our very existence, the stars, gravity, war, peace, what lies beyond the next body of water, mountain range, earth’s atmosphere. But alas the woke generation has arrived. We can ignore humankind’s quest for knowledge and wisdom, everything is new. Earth didn’t need the salvation of Jesus Christ let alone a second coming, the woke children of today are what we have been waiting for since we crawled our way out of the primordial ooze. Backing away from confrontation with the left leaves real people in harm’s way, exposed to real suffering. This isn’t just about social pecking order and hurt feelings if excluded from the cool kids club. This is life or death, intact body parts or butchery be it inside out and “invisible” or external, same thing. We slaughter babies so we can have inconsequential pleasure and many who would not themselves do so, cower from any confrontation with those who do, out of fear of social exile. It is our duty to fight this evil, we are being tested. I hear "Onward Christian Soldiers" in my head.

Re #3 the child’s “mother” is an MD, a pediatrician, who says she treats the whole child. In other words, she dabbles in psychology as well. Somewhere in her there is a screw loose. When you read how she decided this boy was really a girl and at what age (she knows that there is ambivalence about gender at age three) and what she did to foster it, insisting he call himself and be called Luna, insisting he dress as a girl, and all the rest, while he was visiting his dad and refusing to be anything but a boy, to which there were outside witnesses. She seems more the mad scientist, using her child (who was never a part of her) as her subject. Sick. If they share custody, won’t she continue her voodoo? I still fear for this boy.

What this woman, Anne Georgulas, wants to do to her son is an abomination. A crime against her son, against humanity, against God. She wants to turn this boy into a MONSTER, a chimera, a thing. She must not be allowed to do this. And the jury who voted to allow it...how would they feel about doing this to their own children?

I am the biological father of two boys, and the adoptive parent of a boy and a girl who came from Russia. I was curious, going into the foreign adoption process, to measure my emotions in relating to my four children. I soon found that there is absolutely no difference for me - except that my adopted children are nicer than my birth children. (But as was pointed out by my friends, the adoptive children have better genes. I think that was a bit of an insult, but probably a correct observation.) Separate from that, the pediatrician mother appears to be a nut case. She is violating medical ethics by treating her own children, and that's just for starters. She is also suffering from confirmation bias, perhaps because she wanted a daughter. Beyond that, we should be careful in making generalizations about biological versus non biological children.

The fact that he has a twin brother that she is "allowing" to be a boy makes me wonder if this "Pediatrician" is doing this as an experiment and that she plans to publish her results to achieve fame, fortune, and most of all "wokeness points"

She carried the children to term and gave birth to them. I think that makes her their mother. Egg donors don't strictly sell eggs. They are paid for the service of donating them, which involves surgery. Equating a non-biological parent, such as an adoptive parent, with an abusive stepmother or boyfriend is offensive. There are many other reasons to oppose this mother's efforts to let her young son's "transition" without denigrating non-biological adoptive parents.

Thanks to those above for defending adoptive parents. We have an adopted daughter who we received when she was 22 hours old. She is our whole world and always will be. When she was growing up she was one of only a very few children in the neighborhood who actually had two parents in a stable loving marriage at home. She also never set foot in daycare - I quit my job to be a stay at home mom. She is now 29 and 19 weeks into giving us our first grandchild who will be born in March.

It's one thing for her to be mentally challenged, but to think a court room full of people thought it was okay to sexually transform a seven year old is very scary. I still think it's the old fad system. You have one, me too. You adopted a black child. Me too. You adopted a child from Russia. Me too. You have a gay son. Me too. Your daughter is a lesbian. Mine too. Your child is a transgender. Mine too. You have purple hair. Me too. You have a tiny house. So do we. Never mind we are a family of five with a big dog. How very sad for children caught up in the insanity.

Lara Trump took the stage in a convention room at the Valley Forge Casino Resort and gave the crowd a puzzled look. “I’m a little confused,” President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law said. “I didn’t think women liked Donald Trump!” A crowd of about 1,000, mostly women, waving flags and wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, cheered and laughed back. The rally launched the president’s national “Women for Trump” campaign, aimed at bettering Trump’s support among women. The group hopes to encourage women to fund-raise, train volunteers, register voters, and speak proudly about their support, which several in the crowd said can be difficult.

HONG KONG - Hong Kong police fired rubber bullets and tear gas at demonstrators who threw plastic bottles on Wednesday as protests against an extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial descended into violent chaos. Tens of thousands of protesters had gathered peacefully outside the Chinese-ruled city’s legislature before tempers flared, some charging police with umbrellas. (Snip) Opposition to the bill on Sunday triggered Hong Kong’s biggest political demonstration since its handover from British to Chinese rule in 1997 under a “once country, two systems” deal guaranteeing it special autonomy, including freedom of assembly, free press and independent judiciary.

Kristol said, “The White House is panicking that is what is happening. That is why Trump is lashing out at everyone in truly as the senator says, it is unhinged ways. That’s why Lindsey Graham is floating this ridiculous resolution telling the House how to do it’s business and giving Republican senators something they can kinda be for.” He continued, “Even the reasonable Republicans who might defect don’t want to defend Trump on substance.

Rock legend Bruce Springsteen took aim at President Trump in a new interview Friday, saying the president doesn't "grasp" the meaning of being an American. In an interview on "CBS This Morning," host Gayle King asked Springsteen about a recent Trump rally in which the president bragged that his election victory in 2016 was accomplished without the support of celebrities like Springsteen, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. "You surprised that he's trash-talking you after all this time?" King asked. "Not really. Anything's possible," the New Jersey musician responded. King noted that "a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country," with Springsteen agreeing that it's a "very frightening time" in America.

On Friday during Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) funeral, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton used a Biblical analogy to take a veiled shot at President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump. Clinton was comparing Cummings to his namesake, the Biblical prophet Elijah, who stood up against wicked King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. Clinton said, “Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven — but he also prayed and worked for healing.” She added, “Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.” The crowd roared in acknowledgment.
Mathematics a tool of racial oppression, Seattle

Something called the "K–12 Math Ethnic Studies Framework," created by a Seattle Public Schools "Ethnic Studies Advisory Committee," is intended to instruct students that math is intimately connected to racial oppression. Students will be taught "how technology and/or science have been and continues [sic] to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color." The framework, the final draft of which is scheduled to be completed by September 2020, will also attempt to "explain how math dictates economic oppression." That's correct: math.

SAN FRANCISCO — Northern California braced for a weekend in uncharted territory as Pacific Gas & Electric prepared to shut off power to more than 2 million people as the region faced one of the worst periods of fire weather in a generation. It’s a perilous combination that left many anxiously planning for blackouts and the potential for more destructive wildfires, fueled by 36 hours of intense winds. Some fear they will have to confront fires without power, an experience those who fled this week’s Sonoma County fire described as terrifying. The Diablo winds are expected to pick up Saturday

In video captured by C-Span, Bobby Rankin—who was listed as a pallbearer for Cummings’ Friday funeral—walks down a line of VIP attendees. He hugs Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), then shakes hands with Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher urged both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton to “go away” and argued that neither of them can be at the 2020 DNC Convention. Maher said, “[T]he Clintons, they’ve got to go away. I’m saying this now, a year out, or less, they can’t be at the convention, maybe on the video waving or something. But I’m serious.” Maher then agreed with Representative Justin Amash’s (I-MI) assessment that Hillary is a “Trump asset” and added, “Bill is damaged goods. I just think they’ve got to go away.”

No, not “buy the book,” which I’ve been trying to get people to do since Ball of Collusion was published a few weeks back. I’m talking about by the book. That was the memorable phrase Obama national-security adviser Susan Rice emphasized in her notorious CYA memo. Remember? The memo took the form of an email. She wrote it while clearing out of her White House office while Donald Trump was being inaugurated. It purported to summarize a meeting more than two weeks earlier, when President Obama held an Oval Office pow-wow on Ukraine
