Child abuse, by any other name

Man, this slope we’re on sure is slippery, ain’t it?

Parents could face abuse charges for not affirming their LGBTQ child under a new bill

Virginia parents could face a felony or misdemeanor charge if they do not affirm their child’s sexual orientation and gender identity, according to a state lawmaker with plans to introduce the legislation in Virginia’s upcoming legislative session.

Right now, parents’ rights and LGBTQ protections are a big focus in Virginia.

Thousands of students in Virginia have walked out of class protesting Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s newly proposed model policies on the treatment of transgender students at school.

But Gov. Youngkin argues school districts and school administrators shouldn’t keep parents in the dark about their child’s sexual orientation and gender identities.

“These same progressives in Fairfax County actually believe they should lock parents out of their children’s lives,” Youngkin said at a “parents matter” rally during the beginning of the school year. “They think parents have no right to know what your child is discussing with their teacher or counselor.”

DAMN the Repugnican bastige, for not acknowledging that It Takes A Village™ to raise a child…a village of pedophiles, degenerates, and the mentally ill, that is.

In response to Youngkin’s proposed model policy on the treatment of transgender students at Virginia schools, Democratic Virginia Delegate Elizabeth Guzman plans to take legislative actions.

“The day that Governor Youngkin wanted to implement this policy, I immediately texted the policy lead of that committee and said, this is how we’re going to push back,” Guzman told 7News.

Guzman is a social worker and she’s planning on reintroducing a bill in Richmond that she says would help protect LGBTQ children from their parents and guardians who are not affirming of their child’s sexual orientation and gender identity.

“If the child shares with those mandated reporters, what they are going through, we are talking about not only physical abuse or mental abuse, what the job of that mandated reporter is to inform Child Protective Services,” Guzman told 7News. “And then that’s how everybody gets involved. There’s also an investigation in place that is not only from a social worker but there’s also a police investigation before we make the decision that there is going to be a CPS charge.”

“Mandated reporters,” eh? Gee, wonder what that might consist of, how one might go about getting hired on for such a position, what the position pays, who their bosses might be, and what ideological leanings might be Qualification One for those bosses?

“No, it’s not. It’s educating parents because the law tells you the do’s and don’ts,” Guzman answered. “So this law is telling you do not abuse your children because they are LGBTQ.”

Ahh, what godawful straits we’d all be in without The Law around to instruct us on the Do’s and Don’ts.

“I think that it’s extremely important that we show that as a community we are ready to accept each other for who they are and whom they love,” Guzman told 7News. “And this is not a bill that will agitate parents because we haven’t seen any parents to come against it.”

If that last contention is actually true, which I very much doubt, then it’s those inattentive, uncaring parents who need to be the ones tossed in the hoosegow—for child neglect, reckless endangerment, and a few other charges to be specified as and when.

Via Divemedic, whose title says it all: “We Always Knew They Were Going Here.” Well, some of us surely did, yeah. Man, I’m so old I can remember all the way back to the Olden Thymes, during the brouhaha over gay “marriage,” when so much as indulging in idle speculation on how it could open the door to all sorts of more bizarre and depraved escalations was haughtily dismissed as absurd, a complete impossibility, the exclusive province of unsophisticated knuckledraggers.

And now, well, here we all are. Prediction: within four or five years, marrying barnyard animals will be acceptable. Then, enthusiastically celebrated. And eventually, mandated under color of law.

    1. Seems like the children have been getting abused throughout history. Your “divine intervention” is going to be rather late for them, it’s documented.

      1. It isn’t my intervention, and it most assuredly is documented in scripture. if you think is run of the mill abuse you are a moron, this is unknown in history

        1. you are a moron

          I don’t believe your bullshit, the bullshit you can’t prove.

          Throughout history children have been abused. Only a moron waits on “divine intervention” to stop it.

          1. Only a moron waits on “divine intervention” to stop it.

            That’s my attitude. “They’ll get theirs in the end” is too vague and too uncertain, whether it relies on Jesus or Karma.

            The thing to do, I think, is name your pistol Zeus and let it send lead thunderbolts whenever divine intervention is needed.

  1. So, if allowed to stand, this unconstitutional and moot law would compel Goodthink, on pain of jackbooted thuggery, and would compel parents with long-held and deep-seated religious convictions to be forced into confrontations, perhaps even violent and kinetic ones, with TPTB.

    IOW, decent folks will have to start shooting CPS and jack-booted “just following orders” thugs in the face.

    I’m sorry, but from where I’m sitting, I’m having trouble finding a downside for that.

    Solzhenitsyn’s Lament comes to mind.
    Start shooting the Devil’s minions in the face when they come to the door, and they’ll soon stop coming to the door.

    1. It has no chance in hell of passing. But it is instructional and could provide a list…
