Thank you Derrick!

The fundamental issue is the legalese nature of the word “parent”. Parent is a legally defined, codified, legislated, term that is used to restrict natural rights.

A very important issue. Governments attempting to usurp the authority of the children from the parents is a dangerous act of war against humanity.

When u register your car with the government, u are forced to carry their plate, so their enforcement officers know they have the right to remove you from it. When you register your marriage, the government becomes a party in your union. When you register a child's birth, you essentially hand title over to what you consider is a Supreme authority.

I have heard the word 'outrageous' being wrongly applied but here I am outraged the the state's right to interfere without parental consent. I will concentrate here on the subject of change of gender, discussed in the article I have read. Children should be allowed to grow up and decide for themselves what they want to be when they are 17 or older, not at the age of 11 of which you gave an example.

I will describe my own case. When I was a child I desperately wanted to be a girl. When I was told that when a certain comet crossed the sky you could go to bed wishing to be the opposite sex. I tried my best. As I grew older I decided I'd rather keep my male attributes and be a passive gay. I, and no one else, made the decision Parents or others deciding to do gender change operations on me would have been a disaster at an earlier age. I prefer to let nature take its tempered course course rather than the state or even parental control.. Parents are often an example for better or worse, if worse the youth can find other models in the people he knows or in authors. her reads

As for school, no one should be obliged to go to it. If the school is a particularly nasty place ,the parents who can afford it can find tutors. I have read a lot of biographies of famous people I admire very much, who left school. When I was taken out of school for a while - I can't remember why - my knowledgeable mother took over my education and did so much better than my teachers at school had done.

"Governments" are parasites. They have no right to our children.
