A father’s viral TikTok video expresses concern over his nine-year-old son being questioned about gender identity during a routine medical appointment.
A Routine Medical Appointment
What was supposed to be a routine medical appointment for his two sons turned into his personal nightmare when his wife called him with some unsettling news.
The Shocking Question at the Doctor’s Office
The video features a concerned father expressing his frustration over his nine-year-old son being confronted with questions about gender identity during a routine medical appointment.
Introducing His Son to Gender Concepts
Identifying himself as a “common sense enthusiast,” the father, known as “@jotojavin” on TikTok, voiced his indignation at the fact that his son, whom he described as a “boy’s boy,” was introduced to concepts of gender fluidity without his prior knowledge or consent.
The Unsettling Encounter
In the video, the father narrates the encounter at the doctor’s office, where his son had gone for a medical checkup before playing on his school’s football team.
The Doctor’s Question
The doctor asked the nine-year-old whether he identified as a boy, girl, genderfluid, or non-binary, leaving the father taken aback as his son was unfamiliar with these terms.
The First Thing She Asked
“My 9-year-old son went in first, and the first thing this woman asks him is if he identifies as a boy, a girl, genderfluid, or non-binary,” the father exclaimed.
He Argues It’s Irrelevant
The father argued that such inquiries were irrelevant to his son’s medical consultation, which was meant to clear him for physical activities like football.
He Was Grateful He Wasn’t There
Feeling a surge of anger, the father pulled over to record the TikTok video, expressing his frustration with the situation.
He revealed that his wife had taken their nine and seven-year-old boys to the doctor for their physicals, and he was grateful that she was the one present during the questioning about gender identity.
His Anger Was Building
“This is ridiculous,” he exclaimed. “And to the people out there who think that there’s nothing wrong with that, and I’m just a transphobe or all that stuff, you’re messed up.”
‘There’s Something Wrong With You’
“This is ridiculous,” he continued, “and there’s something wrong with you.”
Some Say He Was Rightfully Upset
The video has sparked a heated debate on social media, with some supporting the father’s concern about the introduction of complex gender identity concepts to a young child during a routine medical visit.
Others Say Gender Identity Is Important
Others, however, argue that discussing gender identity with children can be important for their understanding and acceptance of diverse identities.
