This is just sad. One of the main responsibilities of parents is to educate their children and teach them right from wrong. Children are blank slates that absorb everything they see and hear. So when they throw fits and make absurd claims you correct them. But Liberals are instead cowering to the demands of their children, letting them do as they please. That’s what appears to have happened here. Parents were told by their autistic 6-year-old that he was a boy-girl and instead of telling him that’s not how gender works, they looked into trendy Liberal gender identities to encourage the behavior.
The parents explained how they discovered their son was non-binary.
“It’s 7:30 a.m. on a school day. Two parents are racing to get their three young children dressed, fed, packed for the day, into coats, and out the door when 6-year-old Hallel runs downstairs, crying.
Ari, Hallel’s father, is the first to intercept the distraught child and ask “what’s wrong?”
The answer launches a journey these parents never envisioned, described by words they’d not heard and questions they never thought they’d ask. We’re only using first names for the family members in this story due to Hallel’s age.
The journey starts with a “let’s pretend” game. As Hallel explains it, little sister Ya’ara wanted to play “parents.” Ya’ara decides that she’ll be the mommy, and Hallel will be the daddy. Hallel protests. Ya’ara insists: Hallel is a boy, and therefore must play daddy.
“But that doesn’t feel right,” Hallel says to Ari, between tears, “cause I’m a boy-girl.”
Shira, Hallel’s mother, says she copes well in a crisis. In that moment, she packaged the news away for later.
“I was like, ‘well, we love you whoever you are, give me a hug,’ ” Shira remembers telling Hallel.
For Ari, “it felt a little bit like getting up to the top of a rollercoaster, like, OK, now it’s going to begin. I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen next, but what I do know for sure is that this is happening.”
The Dad could have instead just explained gender to the child and talked up how great it is to be a dad. But instead, they supported the child’s confused gender stance. This child was autistic and six he should not be given the reins on his own upbringing. These Liberal parents should have stepped up and properly educated their child, but instead, they just added to his confusion.
