A court has overruled the parents of a teenager who identifies as “non-binary” and blocked their efforts to stop their child from undergoing irreversible “gender-affirming” surgery.
According to a report from The Telegraph, the British parents failed to prevent their child from having life-altering transgender surgery.
The parents reportedly asked the High Court in London, England for an injunction to prevent their 17-year-old daughter from having a mastectomy.
However, the court refused to grant the injunction.
The judge ruled that the child would soon turn 18 and would be able to consent to the experimental “gender-affirming” surgical breast removal.
The court heard that the 17-year-old first began to “identify” as lesbian and “non-binary” at just eleven but had not wanted to tell the parents.
The child told the court that the parents believed that gender ideology is “evil and satanic.”
The parents denied this, however.
The teenager, who uses the awkward pronouns “they” and “them,” told the court:
“I was being emotionally abused by my parents constantly because they would almost make comments to me about how identifying as transgender means I am mentally ill and they would constantly make homophobic/transphobic comments towards me and say things such as the reason LGBTQ+ is normal in the UK is because they are trying to reduce the population.”
The 17-year-old, identified in court documents only as EE, ran away from home in November 2022.
She reportedly moved to live in foster care after a series of alleged incidents with her mother and father.
EE’s parents, who moved to the UK with their child about 14 years ago, claimed that their daughter suffered from “catatonic states, a psychotic episode, and was bipolar.”
A doctor in the family’s native country reportedly purported to diagnose the teenager with schizotypal personality disorder.
EE’s lawyers claimed that her parents’ attempts to seek help for their daughter were “oppressive” and wanted to affirm their “fixed belief” that their daughter suffers from mental illness because she believes she is “non-binary.”
In his ruling, the judge reportedly wrote that EE’s parents made “homophobic” remarks towards her.
The parents argued that their daughter’s use of a “chest binder” was a form of self-harm.
In addition, the judge wrote that EE being compelled to undergo therapy last year was a form of “conversion therapy,” which is illegal.
In the United States, a growing number of leftists have been pushing to allow harmful experimental, irreversible transgender “care” for children.
Republican Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) has introduced legislation that would outlaw these kinds of experimental, life-changing treatments and surgeries for minors.
“Under no circumstances should doctors be allowed to perform these gruesome, irreversible operations on underage children,” Vance told The Daily Caller, which first reported on the legislation.
“With this legislation, we have an opportunity to save countless young Americans from a lifetime of suffering and regret.
“I want to thank Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene for leading on this issue, and I look forward to working with my Senate colleagues to protect children from these life-altering procedures.”
