Virginia State Delegate Wants Parents to Face Abuse Charges if They Don’t Affirm Their LGBTQ Child

Virginia State Delegate Wants Parents to Face Abuse Charges if They Don’t Affirm Their LGBTQ Child

Your children do not belong to you.

Democratic Virginia Delegate Elizabeth Guzman plans to introduce legislation that will punish parents if they do not affirm their LGBT child.

What about when your child says he is a dinosaur? Alien? Spaghetti Monster? Why stop there? Or maybe even a furry.

Remember, your kids do not belong to you. You have to mold the children when they’re young!

The idea came after Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin proposed a policy saying schools cannot allow a child “to choose which pronouns they use, which bathrooms and locker rooms they use and which sports they play based on their gender identity — not biological sex —” without alerting the parents. The policy states:

Schools shall defer to parents to make the best decisions with respect to their children: Parents are in the best position to work with their children and, where appropriate, their children’s health care providers to determine (a) what names, nicknames, and/or pronouns, if any, shall be used for their child by teachers and school staff while their child is at school, (b) whether their child engages in any counseling or social transition at school that encourages a gender that differs from their child’s sex, or (c) whether their child expresses a gender that differs with their child’s sex while at school.

Guzman does not agree. From WJLA:

“The day that Gov. 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 said would help protect LGBTQ children from their parents and guardians who are not affirming of their child’s sexual orientation and gender identity.

Guzman’s legislation would expand Virginia’s “definition of child abuse and neglect to include parents who do not affirm their child’s gender identity or sexual orientation.”

Guzman floated the idea of punishing the parents with a felony or misdemeanor and something that could harm their employment.

WJLA reporter Nick Manock asked Guzman about religious freedom, even mentioning Muslims.

Man, Guzman put together a jumbled mishmash of nothing to explain the law would not infringe on their religious beliefs or free speech.

None of it makes sense because we all know the law would infringe on those rights:

“I’ve been asked that question by knocking on doors,” Guzman answered. “The Bible says to accept everyone for who they are. So that’s what I tell them when they asked me that question, and that’s what I will continue to tell people. You know, we all have a commitment to God. And for those believers out there, we know that there’s life after life, and there is going to be a conversation between that person and God and that’s what we’re after — to go by what the Bible says. It is not my job to judge anyone. It is my job to help people.”

“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.”

Guzman also thinks she knows better than you guys because that’s the politician mindset:

“What would you tell your Republican colleagues who say this is criminalizing parents? What would you tell them?” Minock asked Guzman.

“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.”

Just a handful of years ago we said that this was EXACTLY where they were going to go with their ‘pronoun’ bullshit when a whole bunch of RINOs were whining about just ‘respecting’ them and using the pronouns and calling us intolerant and hateful.

And not a single one of the alleged ‘conservatives’ who said that exactly this would never happen, will ever apologize or admit they were wrong.

    Yup. And the allegedly “conservative” website Bearing Drift aka the RINO website, said exactly that when I lived in VA several years ago. There are so many fake conservatives or even Republicans in VA.

Seems like she didn’t get the memo to keep this desire to jail Parents on the down low until after election day.

    Groomer Guzman and the socialist Dems are turning our schools into transgender Stockholm syndrome indoctrination centers.

What area does she represent? I suspect one full of DC commuters.

Child abuse to be mandatory by law?

How about a bill that characterizes encouraging or contributing to gender dysphoria child abuse?

How about criminalizing elective but permanent procedures such as gender modification surgery or hormone blocker therapy to minors?

Kind of life Virginia Code 18.2-371.1 (Abuse and Neglect of Children)

“Any parent, guardian, or other person responsible for the care of a child under the age of 18 who by willful act or willful omission or refusal to provide any necessary care for the child’s health causes or permits serious injury to the life or health of such child is guilty of a Class 4 felony. For purposes of this subsection, “serious injury” includes but is not limited to (i) disfigurement, (ii) a fracture, (iii) a severe burn or laceration, (iv) mutilation, (v) maiming, (vi) forced ingestion of dangerous substances, and (vii) life-threatening internal injuries.”

    The question is: who decides what is “necessary care?”

    You know who Guzman and the Dems think that should be.

    This map makes no sense. First of all, the district is marked “strong republican,” but shows as going to Guzman with 52%. And it doesn’t include Woodbridge, where her district office is (according to the official state website), and it extends into counties she doesn’t claim to represent. Seeing as this map is not at an official government website, I’m wondering if it’s obsolete or forward-looking information.

    Compare to this map, which shows an entirely different district that covers the right counties, shows the appropriate “blue rot,” and claims to be good up to this month… but also doesn’t include Woodbridge, which is split between 52 and 2.

    Gotta wonder.

But the child isn’t ‘LGTBQwhatever’ unless indoctrinated into the lifestyle by the Leftist state. And Guzman is either ridiculously ignorant, or outright lying with her claim that the Bible teaches “… to accept everyone for who they are”.

The Bible says homosexuality is an abomination that merits death, both in the Old Testament and the New Testament. It further states in 1 Corinthians 6 that the Early Church included amongst its numbers those who were homosexuals but repented of the sin and chose Christ instead.

Guzman’s law is thus a direct attack on the 1st Amendment, seeking to create a privileged sexual identity that supersedes constitutionalreligious freedoms.

What a toad. Nasty, vengeful, petty, illogical, malicious, and stinks at Theology. How is it that academia has let her get away?

The mentally ill should not be indulged, whether it be Ms Guzman or a dysphoria inflicted child..both should be given the treatment and counseling that they need

She wants the government to have say over children
Karl Marx would be proud

There is no such thing as a transgender child even under progressive orthodoxy. The standard refrain is that a child’s brain is not fully formed or fully functional until age 25. At least that is what they claim on the issue of firearms, the death penalty, and life without parole.

    Do children put on puberty blockers brains mature?

    If you prevent puberty until 18 are they essentially just 10 year olds due to changes in the way hormones have effected their brain development?

    Do we know. No we don’t. Most of the “Science” they are throwing about is defective if not outright knowing lies.

    But since Democrats need more stupid voters, 14 sounds good for that.

A similar bill was quietly introduced in 2020 by Guzman and four other Democrats immediately after they took control of the legislature in the 2019 elections. It redefined the term “abused or neglected child” to include one whose parent “inflicts, threatens to create or inflict, or allows to be created or inflicted upon such child a physical or mental injury on the basis of the child’s gender identity or sexual orientation.”

The sole Senate sponsor of the 2020 bill was Joe Morrissey, who served prison time for contributing to the delinquency of a minor after sleeping with his teenage secretary. He accepted a plea deal after initially being indicted on possession of child pornography and other charges.

Hat tip to Ace of Spades HQ

A parent’s job is to protect their children, in some cases even from themselves. No responsible parent should be letting their child make life-altering, permanent decisions until they have enough experience to understand the full consequences of those choices. Any parent that allows their child to “transition” should be looked at for child abuse.

If going to allow children to determine their so call gender why stop their decision process there?
Smoking, drinking, driving, employment, should ecup to them

Sanity from Michigan?

A bill introduced in the Michigan Legislature this week could mean life in prison for any parent or doctor who “consents to, obtains, or assists with a gender transition procedure for a child.” The measure—H.B. 6454—amends the state’s child abuse statute to define such actions as child abuse in the first degree.

“Your kids belong to the state and we’ll sterilize them if we want to” is a hell of a platform plank going into the midterms.

“The Bible says to accept people as who they are”

LOL it most certainly does not…and neither does the Qu’ran. You might get close to some traction with the Far Eastern religions, but even those would be a stretch to extrapolate.

    Then there’s that pesky “Fall from Grace” thingy. Or for that matter we need a savior at all.

    Other than that the ,” accept people as they are” thingy works for me.

      healthguyfsu in reply to Arminius. | October 15, 2022 at 11:09 am

      It’s a fallacy to source that ideology from the Bible. The “Love the sinner, hate the sin” type of philosophy (not a direct quote from the Bible either but it is the consistent philosophy of many books within) is not the same as “accept people as they are” (sins don’t matter is the translation of that ridiculous phrase).

      I’m not even religious, and I know how big a pile of bullshit this is.

The transgender spectrum disorder is trendy. #HateLovesAbortion

Virginia wants your boys and girls, and will return your girls and boys, and Fetal-Babies on a cold, metal slab.

can support removing a child from a primary relationship where there is clear evidence of physical / emotional abuse–no child should have to live in fear–it is our responsibility as adults to intervene and help but to be damned careful when we do–a traumatic situation for any parent but moreso for the child involved

this woman is truly mentally ill–to presume that any child is at the stage of mental maturity to make a life-altering (and potentially lethal) decision regards any “surgery” is beyond ignorant and clearly dangerous–she should be institutionalized

    henrybowman in reply to texansamurai. | October 16, 2022 at 12:27 am

    But in a world where silence is violence and Trump is literally Hitler, I’m no longer willing to let the government define what “clear physical / emotional abuse” means.

Why would anyone want children then? It’s like buying an appliance that doesn’t work and still being responsible for making the payments on the loan and maintenance.

I’m totally rethinki8ng capital punishment.

For Quisling the Norwegians made an exception.

Just kidding. I was always in favor of capital punishment. My bad.

    “Guzman floated the idea of punishing the parents with a felony or misdemeanor and something that could harm their employment.”

    This is leftist ideology in a nutshell. Cause the parents to lose their jobs for the sake of the children. IOW, poverty and instability are good for kids.

    Or maybe she hopes if the parents end up homeless, the state can take the kids to keep them from living in a car/on the streets.

      henrybowman in reply to Fantasywriter. | October 15, 2022 at 5:16 pm

      Right away, at any rate.

      In Germany, the kindly socialists gave their displaced children kind care by placing them with kindly notorious pedophiles. Deliberately.

      The same kind care can be made available to yours. Or maybe even worse.

Wait. I thought the G was for ginger.

Even without this law, if CPS wants your children they’ll find a way to take them.
