Minister's Wife Proudly Flaunts Her Trans 12-Year-Old's Medical Implants
This should be called child endangerment. A mother is showing off how her 12-year old son, that now identifies as female, is getting hormone-blocking implants to prevent puberty. She claims her child is brave for doing this, but this is not exactly a new thing as she allowed her child to start this transition at 10 years old, because apparently at ten people should be making these serious life-altering decisions.
"Last month, speaker, advocate, and wife of Lutheran minister Jamie Bruesehoff celebrated her 12-year-old child, whom she claims is transgender, receiving a puberty-blocking implant in the arm.
“Today, this kid showed her strength once again. Today, she did something that was hard and scary. Today, she made herself proud,” said a social media post from Bruesehoff, the mother of Rebekah, a preteen who is biologically male but identifies as female.
“Today, Rebekah had her second surgical procedure to place a hormone-blocking implant in her arm to prevent her from progressing farther into puberty,” Bruesehoff gushed. “This is one example of what medically appropriate, medically necessary, life-affirming, and often literally life-saving treatment looks like for a transgender child.”
She finished her proud rant by bashing any naysayers.
“With news of further discrimination out of the White House spreading and GOP lawmakers in multiples states trying to prohibit gender-affirming, life-saving care like this for minors, I’m immensely grateful for my child’s medical care. EVERY kid deserves access to that care. We must fight those who want to prevent kids like her from living the lives they deserve,” the post reads. “ALLIES, we need you. Pay attention. Speak up. Stop the spread of misinformation. This is not abuse. This is allowing my child to live her best life.”
How is this ok? At 10 this child didn't need his need parents to buckle to a crazy idea. The minister's wife should have given the child counseling not encouraged a gender change or puberty-blocking surgery. This mother has potentially ruined her son's life, and for what to be trendy? This is America, everyone has the right to do or say whatever they want as an adult. But we should at the very least protect children from these absurdities. Let them at least get to 18 and undergo counseling and then they can decide if this is what they want.
