Transgender Children: Toxic Moms and Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy

Posted on | November 7, 2016 | 2 Comments

Munchausen’s syndrome by proxy is a pattern in which a parent “fabricates, exaggerates, or induces mental or physical health problems” in their child “usually to gain attention or sympathy from others.”

Now, read this report from Julian Vigo at Feminist Current:

[On Oct. 21], The Guardian reported that “a seven-year-old boy who was “living life entirely as a girl” has been removed from his mother’s care after a ruling by a high court judge. At first read, it was unclear who the actors in this case were aside from, obviously, the mother (M), the father (F), and child (J). The judgment of this case, which includes a critique of the section 37 report prepared by Social Services, which Justice Hayden describes as “very disturbing reading,” though, begins to clarify things.
Justice Hayden writes that J’s mother caused “significant emotional harm” to her child and critiques the local authority social services staff responsible for the youngster’s welfare.
He goes on to detail the acts of a controlling mother towards her child, M’s personal diagnosis of J’s alleged gender dysphoria, and a system which failed this child. Together, these various failures demonstrate a pattern of abuse and a mother who, Hayden writes, “deprived [her son] of his fundamental right to exercise his autonomy in its most basic way.”
What the judgment shows is that reports made by the Local Authority’s Housing Department, J’s school, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), and Social Services gave M’s behaviour towards her child (including her approach to J’s “gender presentation”) a pass simply because she was receiving support from Mermaids, a UK-based charity that claims to support parents of children who identify as transgender. Observations like these show major conflicts of interest between Mermaids and the government agencies named in the judgement.
Susie Green, the CEO of Mermaids, began her trajectory into the transgender debate through personal investment. She took matters into her own hands regarding her son’s gender dysphoria, leaving the country for the USA, then Thailand, when the National Health Service (NHS) would not undertake the treatment she thought her child needed. Mermaids is entirely comprised of parents like Green, who have either a child who self-identifies as having gender dysphoria or have started seeking professional help for their child. . . .

You can read the whole thing. The transgender movement has gotten a lot of free publicity from the liberal news media which considers it a “progressive” cause, when in fact it is a dangerous cult. Toxic moms like Suzie Green have decided that having a Special Snowflake Rainbow Unicorn Child™ is a way “to gain attention or sympathy from others.” All it takes is to grab hold of some therapeutic jargon (“gender dysphoria”) and claim your kid is a victim of prejudice and — abracadabra! — you’ve changed your situation from (a) being the parent of a pathetic loser to (b) being the leader of a progressive social movement.

Here’s a book: You’re Not Crazy — It’s Your Mother! Just sayin’ . . .
