Australian Court: Sex Change Surgery Totally Okay. For FIVE Year Old...
There are an alarming number of parents committing child abuse forcing transgenderism on their kids (see Idiot Parents Support ‘Transgender’ Change… For a 7 Year Old Child and Child Abuse? Lesbian Parents Force Toddler Son to be ‘Queer’). But forcing surgery when the child is only five-years old? Apparently that's totally OK in Australia.
What happen to just putting The Wiggles on the tele and letting kids be kids?
A five-year-old child who was born a boy will undergo intersex surgery after the Family Court agreed to a request by the parents to remove the child's gonads.
The child known as Carla, was thought to be female when she was born, because she had ambiguous genitalia, The Australian reports.
But when her mother noticed swelling around the vulva, she underwent tests and it was revealed she had male and not female reproductive organs.
Her male gonads were simply tucked inside her body, making her genital area appear similar to that of a typical female's.
Okay, I want to pause here for a second. Sometimes the balls don't drop. This is going to sound indelicate, and I'm sorry, but sometimes with dogs or cats, the testicles do not descend. That doesn't mean they're not there, it just means they're... up there. Just need to be gotten to. Which doesn't mean a male is a female simply because of genital appearance.
Back to the story...
Once referred to as hermaphrodites, babies born similar to Carla were often assigned a gender at birth.
With the help of surgery, babies had their sex decided for them.
This practice has now been widely condemned by the intersex community who argue the surgery is 'medically unnecessary'.
Without the young child's input, it is argued the wrong gender could be assigned entirely.
Intersex activist Morgan Carpenter told The Australian on Wednesday it was appropriate to assign a gender to an intersex child at birth, but not enforce it with irreversible surgery
I'm torn. One one hand, no child should ever have to go through elective surgery. If there is a health reason, that's one thing. But forcing a child to go through a surgery that the child doesn't actually have to go through is wrong.
On the other hand, the "intersex" community seems to be advocating taking parents choices away that doesn't validate the "intersex" political agenda.
I just... I don't know.
This is an actual tough case here. But if Carla has male reproductive parts, they're just tucked up in there hiding (to put it unscientifically), little Carla might actually be little Carl. And once his/her hormones start doing their thing, Carla might find he/she drawn to more masculine pursuits. Like mansplaining, or leading the patriarchy.
Something to note: Carla is actually intersex, having presented as a girl but having the plumbing of a boy. Which means Carla is anatomically different than the vast majority of the transgender community, who are simply cross-dressing and demanding the rest of us alter our sense of reality for their feelings. That's a big difference. Major. Do not allow the transgender community to take up Carla's cause as one of their own. This is an actual medical case of hermaphroditism. It is not as simple as "Carla is a boy in a girl's body" or vice versa. Carla actually has male gonads tucked up inside her. Or him.
Bottom line? This case of Carla's would've been a lot less political and cultural had the vocal trannies and their compadres not pushed so hard on "gender is totes fluid" these past several years. People like Carla and his/her parents actually need unbiased, scientific information to base their decisions. Not what's culturally in fashion. A person's entire life depends on it.
